Humanity Style: Panel Weather Icons

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Continuing our series of finding ‘Humanity Style’ icons for applications in Karmic we come to the panel weather icons.

If you use the weather notification service in your gnome panel, you’ll have already noticed that in Karmic the icons don’t fit in.

They don’t exactly ruin the appearance of the panel, but for those wanting uniformity on their desktop – you’re going to really want these!

They come sin both humanity and humanity dark variants so you’ll be sure to find the correct match for your set up.


You can download the icons via @


1. Hit ALT+F2 and type: gksu nautilus /usr/share/icons/gnome/16×16/status
2. drag the newly downloaded icons into this folder, choosing to replace the ones already there (make a backup first, mind!)
3. ALT+F2
4. type: killall gnome-panel
5. The panel will close and then restart. If it doesn’t hit ALT+F2 and type gnome-panel to get it back. Your new icons should now be visible!
5b. If the old icons remain, use: sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/
