Change the software icon

In regards to The package installation problem. it's become clear we would like to add a custom launching icon that can be used to open the apt.ubuntu.com URL - allowing packages to be easily installed and obscurifying any command-line or complicated package installation options to more novice users.

Please submit one example Icon per rely including a 16x16 icon (and 24x24 icon if possible) also any SVG of the image and source of the image would be desired.

The existing Software Center icons are already used to convey that you install stuff from it, so I think we should use those:

I personally prefer the standard "package with arrow pointing down icon." I think it is much more relevant to the action that the user will be doing. The software center icon conveys the idea of a place where many different things can be found, while this icon shows that you will be downloading a package

These are from Humanity (/usr/share/icons/Humanity/apps/16/system-software-installer.svg). Although, I actually like the ones with the orange arrow in this answer better. I'm just not sure where they come from.

    The orange icons were actually modified from /usr/share/icons/Humanity/apps/16/update-manager.svg the icon for which was originally suggested by Oli in chat. I modified the arrow to make them more "download" suggested.

Stolen from this answer to a similar question, these icons are similar to the new Ubuntu Software Center icon used in 11.10:

These are modified from the update-manager icon in the Humanity Theme.

There's also the Software Centre logo (as opposed to icon)

16px: 16px Version of Software Centre Logo and 24px: 24px Version of Software Centre Logo

SVG version (GPL license according to Wikimedia Commons)

Probably not preferable to the icons specially created to look good at a small size, but it is more colourful and interesting...

From the Tango Desktop Project:

16x16

24x24

SVG can be obtained from the Tango Desktop Project

(In Ubuntu this icon used to be used in the menu entry for Add/Remove Applications before the Software Centre was created)

I believe the Ubiquity install Icon is one that's recognizable as an "Installation" of something:

16x16

24x24

From /usr/share/icons/Humanity/apps/24/ubiquity.svg
