Mint 14 icon theme on Mint 13

Postby karin_2049 » Tue Jan 22, 2013 2:05 am

Hi there,

Does anybody know please how to install the icon theme from Mint 14 on Mint 13.
I don't want to install Mint 14 since all of my drivers work perfectly in Mint 13 and they do not work in Mint 14 (I tried already).

Thanks a lot :)

I never tried 14 but I believe it uses the faenza 1.3 icons.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme

No, it uses Mint-X icons.

Direct link to the Nadia mint-x-icons: http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... .1_all.deb

Try to install the .deb (by double clicking on it and following prompts) - if it refuses, extract the deb instead and move the folders manually.
