An alternate icon set may be used with any Moodle theme.

An icon set consists of a pix directory containing copies of all files from the moodle/pix directory plus a pix/mod directory containing all activity module icons.

To use the alternate icon set

  1. Amend
    $THEME->custompix = false;
    to
    $THEME->custompix = true;
    in theme/yourtheme/config.php
  1. Copy the pix directory to the theme folder

That is, in order to use an alternate icon set associated to a specific theme, you need to make a whole tree of icons in the pix subdirectory of the theme. Your pix folder will look like the example below, probably with some more theme-specific pictures included:

-- pix/
-- -- c/
-- -- f/
