Numix-Circle Linux Desktop Icon Theme by me4oslav Numix-Circle Linux Desktop Icon Theme by me4oslav
Numix-Circle is the newest Numix icon theme and it uses circle shaped applications icons.
This is version 11 of it and it comes about 700 uniqe application icons (without counting symlinks and if we count them the list is above 1200) and 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.

For some unknown reason dA will not allow me to delete the old version of the theme from the downloads tarball, so once you got it use the .zip version.

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.

Is it normal that only Google Chrome use the default icon on my system ?

You mean Chrome uses its original icon and not a circle icon?

Weird. What does the icon line for Chrome say?

I installed via PPA ... what do I do now to get the icons to appear?

Hey! First of all this icon theme is awesome.
I have one question, is there a way that this icon theme works in Unity with Numix light as GTK-Theme?
Because the indicator icons are light and the theme is also light. So I need dark indicator icons.

Thanks and keep the great work up.

We will eventually add dark indicator icons for our base icon theme.
Hey! I got a giant battery icon when it's not plugged while using this icon theme in Elementary OS Luna, any ideia how to solve this?

Is it white or white grey?
