Re: change home icon

I'm guessing you want to change the one icon, not the whole icon theme.

First, have a look at Settings Manager -> Desktop -> Icons and make note of the icon size (I believe it is 32 by default).
Second, go to your icon theme's .../places/<icon-size> folder (for example: /usr/share/icons/Faenza-Cupertino/places/32/)
Third, the home icon being used is called user-home.png.

More information is available here (http://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-t … atest.html) and here (http://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-n … atest.html).
