Mint-X Icons

Postby Jerrec » Sat Jul 23, 2011 2:32 pm

Hy!

I really love Linux Mint. I do since Version 9. I was a SUSE then openSUSE and Ubuntu user, so I have some knowledge already. Both is Server and Client Sides. But 1 thing, I know it really is not important, but still it bothers me, I will never understand. Why does the distro change to this ugly Faenza Icon Set? I know it is easily swapped back but cant the standard icons be the standard? Or is this somekind of "Baby Release" who need those icons?

The rest of Linux Mint is really great but please remove those Faenza Icons as Standard!

Thanks
Rainer

Rainer, welcome to Linux Mint :D

Hey, I think most here have a gripe with the default install on some point or another (Banshee comes to mind, purge that :lol:). But as you say, it is easy to replace things. Just reminds me why I love Linux :wink:

..cant the standard icons be the standard?
What standard is that, every distributor/developer must use this font as a system font, this font as a menu font, this font as a terminal font etc etc!
    Won't happen anytime soon
    --and I, like many others would object to that proscription from some standards committee..
