Unity Dash Button logos: Ubuntu 14.04 and 12.04LTS by HEXcube Unity Dash Button logos: Ubuntu 14.04 and 12.04LTS by HEXcube
This is a Unity Dash Button logo (also known as Ubuntu BFB Logo) mod pack made by gathering icons collected from various sources like icon packs (Numix, Nitrux, Moka, Faenza and Malys), Numix GTK theme, Ubuntu Design website, Ubuntu 14.04LTS "Trusty Tahr"'s Unity 7.2, Ubuntu 12.04LTS "Precise Pangolin"'s Unity 5. These Unity Dash Button logos are compatible with Ubuntu 14.04LTS "Trusty Tahr"'s Unity 7.2 and Ubuntu 12.04LTS "Precise Pangolin"'s Unity 5 and Unity2D.

You can change the Dash Button logo by replacing one of the following files with your favourite logo from this mod pack:

/usr/share/unity/icons/launcher_bfb.png (for Ubuntu 14.04LTS's Unity 7.2)
/usr/share/unity/5/launcher_bfb.png (for Ubuntu 12.04LTS's Unity 5 and Unity2D)

To do so, follow these steps:

  • Step 1 : Open the `logos` folder in this mod pack, and rename the icon of your choice to launcher_bfb.png
  • Step 2 : Press Alt+Ctrl+F2 to open the terminal and then copy and paste one of these commands:
               For Ubuntu 14.04LTS's Unity 7.2: sudo nautilus /usr/share/unity/icons/
               For Ubuntu 12.04LTS's Unity 5 and Unity2D: gksudo nautilus /usr/share/unity/5/
    Drag and drop the renamed launcher_bfb.png into the window that appears.
  • Step 3 : To see the changes you have to restart Unity. For restarting Unity, it's recommended to logout and log back in. However, for those who dare to take the risk, Unity can be restarted with this command:

           unity --replace && setsid unity

    If the above command doesn't work in Ubuntu 12.04LTS, there's a possibility that your Ubuntu is running Unity2D desktop instead of the real Unity. If that's the case, Unity2D can be restarted with this command:

           killall unity-2d-shell
