mass renaming icons for use with XFE?

I just install X File Explorer. Its amazing, light and fast!

However, i dont quite like the default icon themes that go with it. I tried changing to another icon set but that didnt work because it had a different naming scheme.

For XFE: There is no sub-directory. All the icons are placed in a single one. The size is indicated in the file name (for example: rar_16x16.png, rar_32x32.png)

In the icons directory that i want to use, which is for GNOME, there are several sub-directories for different sizes. And under each directory there are several more, arranged by categories.

Is there anything that can automatically convert/rename/whatever that directory so that it can be used for XFE? OMG, i can't do it by hand

Thank you very much

I know a KDE application for mass renaming. It is KRename. It is powerful, but you must install kdelibs if you want to use this. If not sure, visit krename homepage:
If you decide to use it or just wanna know exact functions, capabilities before deciding, read the manual first. You can download it here:
