  • New devices: tablet, network wired, network wireless, VPN, system harddisk
  • Some reworked icons (Baobab, Gparted, Time-admin, Gconf editor, all folders)
  • Emblems are more homogeneous
  • Some new status icons and two new themes (Faenza-Ambiance and Feanza-Radiance) for a better integration with Unity in Ubuntu 11.10
Ubuntu Installation

Ubuntu users from Lucid to Oneiric, just get to a Terminal and run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme

Once completed, Lucid to Natty users can simply right click the desktop > Change Desktop Background > Themes > Customize > Icons and choose any flavor of Faenza icon theme.

Oneiric users need Gnome Tweak Tool for customizing themes, as the default Appearance Dialog is more than simple, actually. Details here:

Other Linux Installation

Those using some other Linux can download the icon pack from here:

Extract the tar.gz archive and run './install' from within the extracted directory.
