Custom Icons

Where can you get some cool icons for your desktop & other Linux icons? I have a few in my toolbar that look kinda rough in compairison to my nice SuSE KDE skinned ones so i want to replace them. XMMS & Firefox for example.

Also where is the directory that all the icons are kept in so i can put downloaded ones there?

Go to and grab some icons and themes from there. They should all come with instructions.

kde-look is a fantastic resource, even for us non-KDE users.

I use the marbles icons, myself.

What WM are you using? KDE? Gnome? Something more lightweight?
