I love the new Files, app center and software update icons specially an thus want to remain on humanity icon set.

But i hate the folders!

i want to use the folders from the Faenza icon set. Which folder should i copy from the faenza icon set to the humanity icon set so that this happens?

Thankyou! :)

  • which size should i choose? there is 'scalable' in faenza....but not in humanity! and vice versa for 128! i mean ill copy all folders but then i hope 128 is not the one used by default! coz the scalable ones are also at 96px max in faenza – Nirmik Jun 6 '13 at 17:35
  • okay tell me how can i use only the indicator icons form another theme? ( i want to use them from faenza again)(so my final set up should be - humanity icons for apps.Faenza icons for folders and inidators) – Nirmik Jun 6 '13 at 18:41

To change the folder icons in Humanity for those of Faenza you have to copy/paste the Faenza folders Faenza/places/[size] in Humanity/places/[size].

The sizes are set in the index.theme file. You can copy/paste the folders and edit the file to use the sizes you want/have.

From the comments:

If you want to change the indicator icons too copy the status folder.

  • okay just incase i want to do the opposite? i want to edit the faenza theme to keep evrerything else same, but have all app icons to be from humanity? i ask this coz faenza already has lots f icons in it, but humanity doesnt have pre-kept icons...? – Nirmik Jun 6 '13 at 20:57
  • Just replace the folders you want to use. If you want the app icons from Humanity copy/paste the app folder into Faenza and edit the ìndex.theme file accordingly. – Uri Herrera Jun 6 '13 at 21:00
  • but as i said, humanity does not have a pre-saved set of icons like faenza.. for eg, apps folder in default faenza icon theme will have a chrome icon already present in it! but the apps icon from humanity doesnt have nything like this! from where does the humanity theme get those icons? – Nirmik Jun 6 '13 at 21:04
  • From the hicolor folder in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/apps[size]. – Uri Herrera Jun 6 '13 at 21:08
  • okay so is there any way i can directly ask the faenza icon set to collect icons from there? if i have to edit the index file then plz guide me what to edit! m a noob at themes editing n stuff! untill now ive just installed them n used.. :P – Nirmik Jun 6 '13 at 21:11
