Comment 6 for bug 934335

This issue should be pushed upstream and any known theme dev should be warned about this behavior (ex: tiheum).

Personally, using Faenza (without reinstalling the mono theme), on UGR 12.10, I was able to link scalables back to the required file names like so:

#!/bin/bash

# Icons #

color= reset=
if [[ -t 1 ]]; then
color=$(tput setaf 6)
reset=$(tput sgr0);
fi

actions_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/actions/scalable"
applications_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/apps/scalable"
categories_direectory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/categories/scalable"
devices_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/devices/scalable"
emblems_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/emblems/scalable"
mimetypes_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/mimetypes/scalable"
places_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/places/scalable"
status_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/status/scalable"
stock_directory="/usr/share/icons/Faenza/sock/scalable"

echo "${color}Customizing (icons)..."${reset}

# Categories #

cd "$categories_directory" || exit

ln -s "$devices_directory"/computer-symbolic.svg "$categories_direectory"/preferences-desktop-peripherals-directory.svg
ln -s "$status_directory"/avatar-default-symbolic.svg "$categories_direectory"/preferences-desktop-personal-directory.svg
ln -s "$places_directory"/start-here-symbolic.svg "$categories_direectory"/preferences-system-directory.svg
