In this tutorial we will help you install the MagogxGnome3 icon theme on Ubuntu 11.10. This icon theme is compatible with both Gnome Shell and Unity. Here is a screenshot of the icons used by this theme:
To ease the installation process of this icon theme, I have uploaded the theme files to Dropbox so that all commands will be executed from the terminal, no need to download and move the files manually to the icon folder. The credit for this icon theme goes here.
Open the terminal and run this sequence of commands to download and extract the theme file to the /usr/share/icons folder:
sudo tar -xzvf magogforgnome3.tar.gz -C /usr/share/icons
Enbale now MagogxGnome3 with this command:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme 'magogforgnome3'
You can also use Gnome Tweak Tool to enable this icon theme.
