I have LibreOffice installed with the Faenza Icon hack. The hack uses the Crystal icon pack. Whenever I update the Crystal icon package, it removes the hack. Is there a way to stop this from happening except manually deselecting it for every update?

Just to be clear. This is what I DON'T want:

  • I Don't want to uninstall LibreOffice.
  • I don't want to uninstall crystal icon theme.

I simply want to disable the crystal icon theme from ever updating again. Is this possible? Thanks!


Another possibility would be to lock the currently installed version of the Crystal Icon Package. Just choose the package in Synaptic and choose "Lock Version..." from the "Package" menu.

Apart from blacklisting, the best way to solve this is to add Faenza directly to LibreOffice. If there are no licensing issues, I dont think anyone would resist a fancy new theme! (Note: Ubuntus human theme is also upstreamed)
