Hi there. I've seen the Faenza icon set in the Fedora repos, but the version in the repos is an outdated one. Is it possible to install the latest version of the Faenza icon set (which I believe is 1.2)?

Maybe you would like to try Faience icon set, it's an adaptation of Faenza for using in Gnome Shell (and Unity). Faience is being developed by the same author of Faenza. The icons are in an early development stage, but I'm using them right now without any problemn in Fedora 16.

You can download them from Tiheum's Deviantart page: And follow the instructions given there to install them. Note that Faience also need Faenza to be installed, so you should also download Faenza from Tiheum's Deviantart page: And install them using the instructions given by the author.

Regards, and happy holidays.

PS: BTW, a part from the icon theme there's also a Faience Gnome Shell theme, if you want to try it here's the link (same author as Faience and Faenza).

You could probably download the newest set yourself and extract it to


Then run gnome-tweak-tool and select it. In case there's a name conflict you could yum remove the existing one.

Download the latest from here:

You can download, extract and install it with the following commands

cd ~ && mkdir ./faenza && cd ./faenza
bash ./INSTALL

Follow the prompts. This will install it in your ~/.icons directory and will make it available in gnome-tweak-tool.
