LibreOffice on elementary: Part 1

LibreOffice might not have the beauty and nuance of an elementary app, but it's still a standard, well-loved office suite for many.
The default style is... ok. But we'll be theme-ing it up to make it look more modern and more useable. Today, we'll focus on icons.

The process is a bit strange because we'll be installing an icon set we won't use and swapping it for one we want -- a bait-and-switch, I suppose.

Install Crystal Theme
First, let's install our 'place-holder' by pasting the following into the terminal.
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-style-crystal

Download and Faenza Theme
You may download the theme from gnome-look or a quicker download:
Make the swap.
First get root access to modify the themes.
gksudo pantheon-files /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config
Remove or change the name of I changed it to for safe keeping. Now swap in your newly downloaded file into this same directory. Your folder should now look like this.
Make it official!
In LibreOffice, navigate to Tools → Options → LibreOffice → View and change the icon theme to Crystal.
