There are a number of ways that you can use for making your Linux system more catchy and interesting. How about changing that old, non-attractive icon of yours? Or, how about adding a new set of icons to your collection? Yes, today, we’re going to enjoy ourselves with a unique set of icons on our Linux system.
The icon set has a nice name – Uniform. This set of icon is quite different than most others. It obviously follows the current trend like flat icons, but definitely not “yet another pair of Google icons” for Linux.
The icon theme is available at GitHub and GNOME-Look. For GNOME users, use the openDesktop app for installing the icon theme from GNOME-Look. Other users can enjoy the GitHub method for installing on any Linux distro.
For following GitHub method, you have to have Git in your system. Run the following command for downloading from GitHub –
git clone https://github.com/0rAX0/uniform-icon-theme.git
Inside the Uniform directory, place the folder in the icon directory.
cd uniform-icon-theme sudo mv Uniform /usr/share/icons/
Alternatively, for installing the icon for the current user only, run the following commands –
mkdir ~/.icons mv Uniform ~/.icons
Activating the theme
If you’ve installed the theme using openDesktop method, you can easily activate the theme from the app directly, no need to tweak the system.
But if you followed the GitHub procedure, you have to activate it manually. You can look out for settings like “appearance”, “theme” or “icon” in your distro’s app launcher or app finder.
