I've downloaded the Moka Icon Theme, which comes in .zip. I was able to run ./INSTALL with chmod +x ./INSTALL and "successfully installed" this theme, but when I changed it, it changed to GNOME's default icon set. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Also I can't get to the Moka's folder on Icons, as it I don't have permission to.

Running on Fedora 19 x64, i5 2410M with Intel HD 3000, 6 GB RAM, kernel 3.11.1

Probably it is installed in a wrong place.

Do the following. First, use the script provided by the icon theme to uninstall it. Then, extract only the icon theme folder to:


You should create that directory in case you don't have it. In your home directory, enter the following command:

$ mkdir .icons
