Kind of an odd question, but I just ran an update tonight and there were a number of updates to some of the CB specific stuff, including the removal of an icon pack, apparently. I installed the newly discovered
, but my icons are still the default Gnome ones, which look out of place.
lxappearance shows that I have the Crunchbang default icon set chosen, but it doesn't look any different than the Gnome and elementary icon sets...
ndegruchy thanks for the heads up. I can only assume its been upgraded because debian wheezy has just been released as the new debian stable?
@th3pun15h3r: No, since CrunchBang is in the package name, it has to be corenominal's doing...it's not like APT is going to switch to the Statler repo all of a sudden, especially since our sources.list points to the repo name, not stable or unstable...
@ndegruchy: I noticed the CrunchBang Faenza set was auto-removed on my system as well...
Would assume it's just some pre-maintenance, relative to positioning for a "Janice" theme/icon package at some point in the near future.
The Crunchbang-Faenza icon theme description references "Waldorf", which is why it was likely not included in the most recent CB update.
What was I thinking...
Anyway, I'm fairly sure that the Gnome icons were the default in Waldorf, so that's obviously what the recent CB updates simply reverted back to.
As far as Janice, what I "meant" to say...is that she should come packaged with her own theme/icons, in the tradition of #!.

Reading this thread reminded me of those bright shiny spinning icons with streams of other bright shiny spinning icons streaming off into the space background that gOS had...........fun spinning stars, smiley faces, and music notes etc. Even tho I am a grandma, I really enjoyed those....but yeah............oh the wasted resources no doubt. But, none the less, I miss them.

First posting, so please be gentle.
I performed an apt-get autoremove and ran into the above problem of icons that don't fit the (IMO) very aesthetic design any more. Like nebulaehair, whatever I select in lxappearance looks the same.
So now my question is - how do I 'install manually' ? Where do I find crunchbang-icon-theme to download as a .tar.gz that lxappearance seems to require?
Thanks for your help
In a terminal, enter
sudo apt-get install faenza-crunchbang-icon-theme
If I recall correctly, you may need to restart for the reinstalled icons to display.
Thanks, pvsage, was rather hoping for the restauration of corenominal's '~75% smaller' crunchbang-icon-theme.
It seems whatever way I get it, terminal or synaptic or .deb package, it doesn't show up properly in lxappearance and nothing changes. Will try the old faenza-crunchbang-icon-theme though in the interim, thanks for the tip.
I know this thread is old, but I have the same issue on #! 64bit updating from stable to unstable. All the folder icons have turned from the grayish color to the ugly brown color. Can anyone help me out?
I've tried that. The crunchbang and crunchbang-dark icon sets still have the brown folders.

sudo aptitude update;apt-cache search crunchbang
Thanks for the help everyone! I installed manually through gdebi, and now I have the faenza-crunchbang themes. I also reinstalled the "crunchbang-icon-theme" through gdebi but the icons are still brown, even after a restart!
I guess the faenza theme will have to hold me over. I'm sure I'll get used to it.
