Numix-Circle Linux Desktop Icon Theme by me4oslav
Numix-Circle Linux Desktop Icon Theme
Numix-Circle is the newest Numix icon theme and it uses circle shaped applications icons.
This is version 14 of it and it comes with about 2150 application icons covered (over 800 more than the previous version) and the biggest change in it is that the baseplate background shape and some of the icons symbols have been completely redone so it feels like a whole new theme. It is a huge improvement over the previous version.
It has custom:

  • Folders icons

  • System Settings icons

  • Indicator icons

  • Symbolic icons

  • and more

These non application icons are part of the basic Numix icon theme, which you can download or purchase from here.

It is GPL licensed and the "code" is hosted at GitHub.
If you wish to install it under Ubuntu (or derivates) execute the following commands in terminal:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:numix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install numix-icon-theme-circle

If you wish to support the project please buy the icon theme for every dollar counts.

Other Numix related artwork can be found here.

Icon requests and bug reposts should be filled in Launchpad as bug reports.

NOTE: Please check our website for instructions for installing under Fedora/RedHat and openSuSE.

P.S. If you want to request in application icon do it the THIS WAY.

Hi, i asked a couple of weeks ago if you can point me in the right direction on how to make my own icons for elementary os and you said to remind you 10 days later,well here it is :)

im trying to convert windows 7 .ico icons along with some elementary icons and some icons of my own into one pack for my personal use on my machine, any help would be appreciated.

Converting .ico is not an option, you will have to redraw the yourself. For the rest you can fork numix-circle for your local theme and follow it's infrastructure if you're gonna rely on .svg, if you're gonna use .png for moka, However beware you will end up with design mishmash by mixing so much styles and it will start looking ugly. 
My advice is - if you're not a designer do not try to do an icon pack, just don't. You will create something bad. Pick one from the existing ones and sue it. Icon packs like numix, moka and flattr are really well designed and you will enjoy using them.

I really love the numix-circle iconset but can you please stop changing it so dramatically and often :)
Please do consider this as a *constructive* suggestion!
I mean, when i first installed the theme all the control buttons (like back/forward/refresh on chrome) were just grey and i loved it ; a few weeks later some of theme got a fading color - no problem; another few weeks later back button was orange, forward was blue and refresh button some other color i do not remember - still ok for me;

I just updated my system now and everything is just so different; all the controls are green and chubby;
If you plan to change so much why not name it differently?? (like Numix-circle-green and  Numix-circle-original )
and allow the users to switch if they want;

If you don't want or don't have time for maintaining multiple version of your theme PLEASE allow me to fork your project an keep the old style still available. PLEASE :)

We are in the process of redoing the action icons, hence the dramatic changes. Soon enough they will all be colourful and lovely, don't worry. ;)
The chubby green icons will be gone in the next build and be replaced with…
