‘Faenza variants’ icon pack eases minor icon annoyances

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 It may be outdated.

An icon set may be designed to fit all but it rarely pleases all.

Faenza – arguably the hottest icon set available for Linux right now – is one of the icon sets about which we’re contacted daily by readers seeking an icon for this or enquiring when the set will get an icon for that.

The excellent Faenza Variants pack was created to scratch this very itch and, today, has updated itself with some new and some updated icons.

Scoring an ‘A’ on the usability scale the set is packaged as its own theme. Rather than having to manually hunt down and replace individual icons you just install the set like any other theme set.
