Changing Icon Themes in Intrepid Ibex

Changing Icon Themes in Ubuntu: Intrepid Ibex
I been baffled by this since I started using Ubuntu (Dapper Drake).


Using gnome-art to get themes.
In the terminal type:

sudo aptitude install gnome-art

You can find the new menu in System>Preferences>Art Manager

From here, you can download and installing new icons themes.



The other alternative is to visit gnome-look.org and check out and download those themes.

Once you have the file...
  1. System>Preferences>Appearance>Install
  2. Select the downloaded .tar file -
Everything should install without hiccup.



Implementing your new icon theme.
System>Preferences>Appearance - under the theme tab, select a theme that you want to change the icons for, then press Customize - navigate to the icons tab. Select your icon theme and viola!
