I'm unable to change the icon theme on any of the users. I did also try running "gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme fedora" with root & non-root.

I did find the following link.

But I don't know where the ~/.icon folder is, any helpful suggestions will be appreciated.

Please create that directory if you don't have it:

$ mkdir -p ~/.icons

Then save any icon theme in that directory and install this tool to change them:

# yum install gnome-tweak-tool

You also can use the command line to change the icon theme:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme 'name-of-icon-theme'

@JESSEJJ89: have you tried dconf-editor to set the name of the variable icon-theme? This is the same as using gsettins I guess, but who knows... good luck!
