Ubuntu – How to change QT (KDE) application icons for gnome


I'm running gnome3 on Ubuntu 12.04 and my dolphin looks like this:

Dolphin on gnome-shell

I really don't like these oxygen themed icons and want to use the Faenza icons.

I tried backing up the oxygen icons and downloading a version of Faenza for KDE and then making a sym link from Faenza to oxygen like:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/icons/Faenza-KDE /usr/share/icons/oxygen

but nothing changed??!?!

So where are QT apps pulling their icons from?!?!

Best Answer

The KDE System Settings changes those Icons: sudo apt-get install systemsettings will install it.

From there go to Application Appearance>Icons.
