Normally, docky's icon is dynamically drawn by the program so that it is colored based on your GTK theme. So, the first thing we need to do is turn that off. Launch the "Run Application" dialog by pressing
Alt+F2. Then run
gconf-editor from that prompt.
Now browse to
/apps/docky-2/Docky/Items/DockyItem/ Select the
Hue key and change the setting to
Now that docky will use the theme icon directly, you can change the icon in the theme. The theme will be found in
/usr/share/icons if it is installed system wide or
~/.icons/ if it is installed locally.
For Faenza, you'll want to replace
/usr/share/icons/Faenza/apps/scalable/dock.svg with the icon you want. You'll probably want to use
/usr/share/icons/Faenza/places/scalable/distributor-logo-ubuntu.svg Depending on the size of your dock, may also need to replace some of the other sizes as well.
You'll need to restart docky.
