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 13 of it and it comes with about 2150 application icons covered (over 800 more than the previous version), optimised for smaller size icons and amongst other improvements and Cinnamon Control Centre support.
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.
Don't forget to circle our Google + page, become a member of our Google+ community and visit our official webpage.
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.

removed and re-added PPA, uninstalled and reinstalled the two programs and performed the apt-get upgrade on the icon sets both as a normal user and as root in ubuntu, but can't get the Numix Circle versions of Teamviewer and Google Docs to show correctly. The .SVG files for both are there, but for some reason they won't apply. Everything else works.

After installing, broken icons are shown on my software manager page.

Icons of All Packages, Internet, System Tools, Fonts, Science Education are broken.

Can you please help me with a fix?

I recently updated this icon pack via PPA. The outer white borders are gone and I guess I am okay with that. However, some of the icons have rough, pixelated borders. For example, both chrome and firefox icons have rough borders.  They  are not round and smooth like the others. This one of the reasons why I prefer the older icons.
I do not know if these pics show them clearly but here you go:

firefox -
chrome -

Hopefully it will be fixed soon. Anyone who is trying it out for the first time might get a bad impression.

Already fixed in the PPA.
