You will see in Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa that not all icons are following the same theme. Whether you are using Sardi or Numix or any other theme, they never change.
These icons are hard-coded.
It means that the programmers have put a line inside a file pointing to one specific place to show us this icon. So whatever you do, this line never changes.
You can do this manually but I will always choose the most efficient way and that is the hard-code fixer from Foggalong.
This little tool will look at your system and change all the hard-coded programs and change it so your icon themes will look nice again.
And you can reverse the changes as well.
