The Arc Theme has a screenshot that has a really nice launcher, nice icons for the launcher only (here), an options panel on the top, and a really cool Scopes icon down on the bottom.

How can I do this? Awesome Desktop

P.S. I already have Unity Tweak Tool installed, along with the theme applied.

EDIT: This is what I'm talking about What I want

This is what I have. I only want to change the icons for the launcher, but keep Numix everywhere else.

What I have

    The top panel in the Arc theme image you pasted suggests it's Gnome environment, not Unity. The giveaway is the clock in the middle of the panel and the characteristic icons in the top right. They probably used a plugin/extension to lock Gnome's favorites bar to be always shown, and applied theme to the environment – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy May 9 '16 at 22:46

    See this image : 3.bp.blogspot.com/-v4epkdsJSNg/UIWPZIUIrbI/AAAAAAAALN4/… The default gnome favorites bar has the same characteristic icon at the bottom, only not stretched - that's a job for a plugin – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy May 9 '16 at 22:47
  • I would make desktop files and change the Icons of them... Then I would change the Unity Icons files. Ask if you need help with it. – MathCubes May 10 '16 at 0:18

The easiest way is to install Unity Tweak Tool and then add the relevant PPAs for the themes and icons you want.

  • Thank you but I already have the Unity Tweak Tool. I just wanted to know about the Launcher. How can I customize the icons only on the launcher? What is the app that allows him to move Scopes down? – lolreppeatlol May 9 '16 at 11:38
