subject: gnome iconset software: unknown + the GIMP
This is the best I could have ever made. A full iconset for gnome desktops [windows or mac users won't be able to install it]. I also included a script which lets you modify the colours and the aspect of many icons, like folders ones, apps, buttons, etc.
This is not a complete artwork made from me. It's a little artwork made by me, and the rest is a collectwork.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Download the .zip file and extract if into your desktop. Then drag&drop the .tar.gz file into the Themes window to install the iconset. Further instructions [related to the script modifications] included within the .zip and the tar.gz file.
WARNING: The iconset is 70+MB weight.

Releases will be published as snapshots expanding the iconset with new icons. As always don't expect so much.
At this time the icons already done are: - Folders (still missing some icons in smaller sizes). - Some mimetypes: document, video, image, audio and PDF files (Linux only) - Package mime types: far, zip, tar.gz... (linux only)
All in they respective sizes (512, 128, 64, 48, 32, 22 and 16px). Some icons like actions will have only 16, 22, 32px and 48px (maybe someone in 64px) versions.
Hope you like it, I do the best I can (I am not an icon designer, only a fan ).

INSTALLATION: Download the tar.gz file and extract it. In the new folder created, run the ./INSTALL script to choose the distribution logo (Ubuntu, by default) and the Gnome menu icon. If run as root, the script will copy the iconsets to /usr/share/icons to made them available to all users. Some default icons used by Rhythmbox and Dockmanager may be also replaced. Run ./UNINSTALL as root to restore defaults icons.
Faenza icon theme is available to install for Ubuntu users via a PPA repository. View the README file for instructions and a list of known issues.
As the file is the too big for DA submission policy, you can download the archive form the dedicated Google Code page: [link]
Ubuntu 11.10: the Unity panel has a strange behavior with some icons compared with the previous version (and Gnome 2 panels of course), especially with user menu and battery state icons. You might use one of the to new themes instead of the classic ones: Faenza-Ambiance is suitable with dark panel and toolbars (inherits Faenza-Darkest theme), Faenza-Radiance with light panel and controls (inherits Faenza theme).
Some applications are configured to always use the same icon regardless of the selected theme. To display the Faenza icon, edit as root the /usr/share/applications/application_name.desktop file and locate the line beginning with 'Icon='. Replace the fullpath icon name by the one of the Faenza icon (usually, it's the name of the application itself) without the extension. Don't forget to make a backup before changing one of those files. E.g. Vim desktop file is /usr/share/applications/gvim.desktop Some desktop files can be located in /usr/local/share/applications or in your ~/.local/share/applications folder (e.g. Steam desktop file is somewhere in ~/.local/share/applications/wine). Here is a partial list: emacs23, gcolor2, bluefish, hardinfo, setroubleshoot, gufw, pithos, vim, rssowl, netbeans, gazpacho, guake, all commercial games, etc
If you want to use the new Gnome contact application, edit its desktop file (/usr/share/applications/gnome-contacts.desktop) to use the specific (and beautiful) icon named gnome-contacts
