When I use the Elementary theme 2.0 the default Caffeine icon is displayed in my top-panel. I found some nice icons that’ll fit the theme better. I followed the instructions on the page and they’re not working for me. Any tips how I can make these icons show up in my panel?


Okay… I found a solution.

What I did is:

  • Renamed both icons to caffeine-cup-empty.svg and caffeine-cup-full.svg
  • Since I use the dark variant of Elementary I sudo copied both icons to /usr/share/icons/elementary-mono-dark/status/22
  • Then I refreshed my icon cache by typing:
    sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/elementary-mono-dark/

It seems to do the trick, I have no idea or this is how things are suppose to be done though.
