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 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.

(ubuntu/unity)could icons in the top bar just be simple, or redesign into the style with system default

e.g. the prime-indicator    top bar icon just be white, but nvidia icon is a colorful circle, just looks little wired

Hey, guys. What's up?

I just got an update for Numix Circle and noticed that my indicators now have round icons. Is that a kind of a bug or is it a new approach of the Circle Theme? Please, see the attached image...

Don't get me wrong, but round icons for indicators are not cool. I mean, they are supposed to be mono icons, that's what makes them rock.

Thanks for your time. :)

Sorry, but we won't.
But you can use this:…
And the folders icons are part of our base icon theme and not an apps icon theme, like this one.

Hi there! Thanks for this beautiful icon set, I love it! One complaint/question though: After I installed it on my Linux Mint 17, I noticed that the software center screen looks a bit...odd. Here is the pciture:

Could you help me please?

Thanks a lot in advance!

This is tricky to fix. Mint Software Centre uses both category and apps icons and because we have varous apps icons theme (not just circle) categories can't be circles. But we will see what we can do?
