How to install new icon themes in Ubuntu

Yesterday I wrote about how to install new themes in Ubuntu Unity. Today, I decided to show you how to install new icon themes.

Process of installation is almost same. One thing is different and that is folder where you put downloaded and extracted icon theme folder. Let's take a look...

You decided to change default icon theme. First, visit one of the two sites mentioned in previous article, download desired icon theme, extract downloaded archive and move extracted folder to /usr/share/icons. You must be root user to accomplish this task.

You can do it in GUI or CLI way.

After that, open one of the tools for tweaking Unity, find icons section and select newly installed theme.

Done.
