How to change the dash icon in Unity-Ubuntu 16.04

Using command line
1-Backup the original icon (open a terminal ctrl+alt+t) :

sudo mv /usr/share/unity/icons/launcher_bfb.png /usr/share/unity/icons/launcher_bfb-back.png
2-copy your chosen icon to /usr/share/unity/icons/ and rename it to launcher_bfb.png by the following command :

sudo cp /path (the icon path)/icon-name.png /usr/share/unity/icons/launcher_bfb-back.png 
 for me it like that: 
  sudo cp /home/djalel/Pictures/ubuntu.png /usr/share/unity/icons/launcher_bfb-back.png
Using file Manger:

1-open the file manger as root:
  gksu nautilus
2-rename the icon to  launcher_bfb.png 
 3-copy it to the folder /usr/share/unity/icons/
Note: before you paste the new icon just backup the old one by rename it to launcher_bfb-back.png
logout & login again for the change take effect.
