nice icons

Post by ud6 » Wed Aug 29, 2018 8:43 am

I never really changed icons much as often just seemed to go back to the default, but I found some nice icon sets (colourful) that are comprehensive and go well with dark themes (I think a dark theme is set off well by colourful and tasteful icons).

My two favourites are 'vivacious colours' (which has selection of coloured icons depending on theme e.g. 'dark' ones are are lighter in colour so show up with dark theme) and 'pop' icons.

To install vivacious: https://www.ubuntupit.com/install-vivac ... x-desktop/

To install pop:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:system76/pop
sudo apt update
sudo apt install pop-icon-theme
Please ignore the fact that I use Microsoft Outlook (online) and that I was visiting the Manjaro website :shock: :lol: :lol:

I really like the 'vivacious colours'.

Looking good.
Taking a brief leave. I got a set of ultra wheels and toyo tires to use and review.

Icons depend a lot on the desktop, Papirus is my favourite for Xfce, on Mate Vibrancy looks really good and on Cinnamon my favs are Numix Circle (but they doesn't look good at all on Xfce's Thunar).

Numix Circle on Cinnamon.

It's not available for Mint 18.x / xenial via the PPA. It's there for Mint 19 / bionic.

You can grab the debs directly from https://launchpad.net/~system76/+archiv ... hive-extra and see if they will install on 18.x
