Daily Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Rho from seekngeek, has created a Faenza icon pack for the LibreOffice toolbar, based on Kado20es' work. The icon pack is still in beta but it looks great already:

LibreOffice Faenza toolbar icons


LibreOffice Faenza Icon pack will only replace the LibreOffice toolbar icons with Faenza monochrome icons and will not affect the LibreOffice application icons. Also, you don't have to use Faenza as the system icon theme to use the LibreOffice Faenza icons!



Installation


Firstly, download LibreOffice Faenza Icons Mod in your home folder and then run the commands below, depending on how you've installed LibreOffice:


- for LibreOffice installed from the official Ubuntu repositories or the LibreOffice PPA:

sudo apt-get install libreoffice-style-crystal
cd
mv ~/libreoffice_faenzaMOD.zip ~/images_crystal.zip
sudo mv /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.zip /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip && sudo mv ~/images_crystal.zip /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.zip

Please note that the installation instructions above will overwrite the original "libreoffice-style-crystal" (which isn't really a problem is you're not using this style or you don't plan on using it; either way, the commands above will create a backup of the original Crystal style). If you want to replace a different LibreOffice style, see the instructions @ LibreOffice Faenza Icons Mod Gnome Look page.


- for LibreOffice 3.3 downloaded from the LibreOffice website:
cd
mv ~/libreoffice_faenzaMOD.zip ~/images.zip
sudo mv /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip && sudo mv ~/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images.zip

- for LibreOffice 3.4 downloaded from the LibreOffice website:

cd
mv ~/libreoffice_faenzaMOD.zip ~/images.zip
sudo mv /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip && sudo mv ~/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images.zip


Once installed, open LibreOffice, select Tools > Options and under "LibreOffice", click on "View" and select "Crystal" (under "Icon size and style"):

LibreOffice change icons


Update: for ArchLinux, use the following path: "/usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config/images_brand.zip" (thanks to Rationalperseus)


Revert the changes


If you want to use the original style, simply open the LibreOffice Options and select "Automatic" under LibreOffice > View.


Also, a back up of the original LibreOffice Crystal style is available (if you've used the commands above) under "/usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip" for LibreOffice installed from the Ubuntu repositories/PPA and "/opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip" or "/opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip" for LibreOffice downloaded from its website. To restore the "Crystal" style, use the commands below:

- For LibreOffice installed via Ubuntu repositories / PPA:
sudo rm /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.zip
sudo mv /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.zip

- For LibreOffice 3.3 downloaded from its website:
sudo rm /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images.zip
sudo mv /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images.zip

- For LibreOffice 3.4 downloaded from its website:
sudo rm /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images.zip
sudo mv /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images_crystal.orig.zip /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images.zip

Please note that I've only tested the first case (LibreOffice installed via the LibreOffice PPA / Ubuntu repos).
