OMG! 5! – Five Monochrome App Icons

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 It may be outdated.

There’s nothing worse than an application sitting in the notification area of your system panel and sticking out like a sore thumb on the cohesive hand of your desktop.

Or something more poetic.

Below sit five such apps and some Lucid-loving replacement icons.

Installation instructions can be found at the respective links but, as a rule of thumb (what is it with the hand metaphors today?), most require running Nautilus as root (ALT+F2 > gksu nautilus /usr/share/icons) then navigating to the respective icon folder, replacing the offending pixels and restarting the application in question.
