Description:

Faeanza-based icon theme with a few new app-icons, blue gray or green folders and new mimetype icons. Optimized for dark themes
Primary developed for Linux Mint and Ubuntu GNOME. Limited support for KDE Plasma.

ABOUT
=======
I initially created this icon pack for usage on my own desktop, to fit with the theme I made for my desktop, "Obsidian 2" (https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1169534). The name of the icon pack is inherited from the theme; both are designed for each other. After some time I put it on gnome-look.org, if maybe someone else out there likes it.


DESIGNED FOR DARK THEMES
=========================
Because it was designed for a dark theme, there is currently no version for light themes which you might know from the original Faenza icon pack. The actions and statusbar icons are white and most of the mimetypes (e.g. text-plain) are gray or dark colored. So if you're using a light theme you can give it a try of course, but it might look bad. For light themes I'd recommend using another Faenza-fork. But don't worry, a version for light themes is in development! :-)


USAGE
========
The project is hosted on Github. The three versions (blue, gray, green) are developed in separate, independent branches.
You can download it, fork it, build packages for your distribution... do whatever you like.


SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME
================================
Is there an icon you miss, a bug you have found, or do you have a better idea for an existing icon, just let me know in a comment. Suggestions for single icons are very welcome for further development! I cannot guarantee implementing every suggestion, but as long as they are fitting to the rest of the icon pack (and I do like them by myself ;-) ) there is no problem.
In case you want to report a bug, please also mention your desktop and distribution.

Enjoy! :-)

Greatest icon theme. For perfect integration if KDE in Manjaro, copy the all arquives in the folder "places 16" in the Breath icon theme (usr/share/icons/Breath/places/16) to "places 16" in Obsidian icon theme (.local/share/icons/Obsidian-green/places/16), and inclued the KFaenza in "index.theme". The line "Inherits=Obsidian" to "Inherits=Obsidian,KFaenza" and install KFaenza. 100% perfect in the KDE.

Latest update was great, this should be a total Faenza-killer on Debian repos, by the way I think MATE Faenza has a geany icon that looks like a notepad with the teapot, also the latesy MATE icon apps addition was amazing, it even has white icons for clementine! (I will try to .deb package it, hope you don't mind)

My favorite icon them right now. Thank you! I'd like to contribute by creating icons for some lesser known apps,; is there a template of some sort that I can start with?

Report

Hi, new app icons are welcome! I don't have some kind of template, but you don't need one. If I create a new icon, I pick an existing one which is similar to what I wanna create, remove everything unnecessary (maybe change the background-color) and add the new foreground-stuff.

Great looking theme. However, I have noticed that icons are missing from the weather forecast widget.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. The weather icons are in the status directory. With e.g. the OpenWeather gnome extension the icons are working. Which icons are you missing, in which application/widget ?

Probably the revival of faenza icons but 10,000 times better :D (Have you considered making geany more....geanish?)

Report

Hey, yes I thought about some kinds of doing that. But if you're pressing the geany "teapot" into a Faenza styled shape, you get an icon which is too much intensive yellow (imho). On the other hand, the geany icon from Faenza is well done, even if there's no association with the original geany icon. So for the moment I decided to keep the geany icon from Faenza.
