    cet follow that last 2 threads 956 957 and choose what ever way you like

    mine way is thread 956 replace icon with same name

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=232753&page=39

    what i usally do is copy the backup of icon or rename it and change it with another icon of my desire its easy and safe

    like you get your icons in /home/.icons/theme name/status


    open hidden files you see .icons folder there see icons you want to change

    the icon you are talking about is either in status or places

    please see the photo of icon and its fuction and then change it and before doing it back it up to some place or rename it also to make icon 100% work you have to put same name what ever there you are using

    like for example

    you want to replace icon of start-here icon form Aaa theme to there Bbb theme but there its written as start ..............so you have to rename icon start-here as start and copy past it to Bbb theme

    ie in simple words change icon photo with same name as theme do the trick

    the location of your icon is

    home/.icon/NITRUS/status/Scalable

    search status you find it :D

    Thank you for your answer.But the icon is not in the folders you have suggested.I found the icon in the devices section but there are 3 of the same pic. computer.svg gnome-computer.svg and gnome-dev-computer.svg.So I am not sure which one to change.
    I installed the Faenza ambiance theme and it is a more complete suite.I will use it :)

    easy way then change the theme LOL

    i dont have this theme but i check from theme i use is Nitrux-OS-Icons

    http://deviantn7k1.deviantart.com/art/Nitrux-OS-Icons-293634207

    and i dont use ppa just download extract and save icons to folder .icons in home (hidden folder)

    it should be in status folder

    /home/.icons/theme name/status

    or maybe its taking a wrong icon so far i see this icons on theme

    http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Elefaenza-Blue-243819048

    also if you read comments its icon problem i guess i suggest you to try

    Faenza-Cupertino instead or tiheum icons

    tiheum is appointed by ubuntu to create new icons for ubuntu 13.04 his icons are top in all sites and pretty safe to use

    http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Faenza-Cupertino?content=129008

    http://tiheum.deviantart.com/gallery/

    http://tiheum.deviantart.com/art/GTK3-Gnome-Shell-Faience-255097456

    also you can check these

    one more thing you might notice is tiheum icons is under license GPL 3 and Nitrux-OS-Icons are under license Creative Commons so they are pretty safe to use ;)

    also you can download and check then on

    virus total site and match the hash checksum as well :D

    I always install the icons in the .icons in home (hidden folder).But since tiheum icons are safe I added the ppa and installed Faenza and the Faenza Ambiance is for my taste.Thanks.
    I do not know why but when I extracted the files in the .icons home folder for Faenza the notification icons did not work.So I had to install it from the ppa to use the Faenza Ambiance version.
