I'm not a big fan of the Software Center icon (apparently I'm not the only one: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/09/software-centre-icon-proposal).

Is there a way change it?

The answers to this related question doesn't make it clear whether there is: How to change the Dash Button in Unity Launcher?

As far as I can see the Software Center icon isn't in nautilus /usr/share/unity/5/ so where could it be?

  • I agree, that such a simple thing should be possible over a GUI as in any other OS. – empedokles Aug 24 '14 at 18:59

In the terminal

gksu gedit /usr/share/applications/ubuntu-software-center.desktop

Change Icon=softwarecenter to Icon=/path/to/your/icon.png save
