I’ve been using the Faenza theme for years on both my computers, using the ~tiheum ppa to install it automatically. I feel that the subtle squareness suits the unity bar really well. So I upgraded to the latest Ubuntu (12.10, codenamed Quantal Quetzal. I know, I know…) and found a problem. The battery icon was ugly when charging, but fine when not plugged in. Pedant and perfectionist that I am, I had to fix it – and if you have the same problem, make it easy for you to do the same.
