  • @Rusiru
    Simply search for it in the AUR and then install it. If on gnome, just select it as the new set of icons to use in Gnome Tweak Tool.

    Hope this helps:slight_smile:

  • @joekamprad I have downloaded icon pack and i want to install that how to do this

  • Manually
    If you cannot find a package for the icon theme you are looking for, you will need to install it manually.
    Firstly, find and download your desired icon pack. Many different icon themes can be downloaded from the following sites: Customize.org, Opendesktop.org and Xfce-look.org.
    Then navigate to the directory which contains the icon pack and extract it. Example tar -xzf /home/user/downloads/icon-pack.tar.gz.
    Move the extracted folder containing the icons to either ~/.icons or ~/.local/share/icons (user only) or to /usr/share/icons (systemwide).
    Optional: run gtk-update-icon-cache -f -t ~/.icons/<theme_name> to update the icon cache.
    Select the icon theme using the appropriate configuration tool for your desktop environment or window .

  • @joekamprad actually i dont have any idea how to navigate icons folder :/

  • Hi again!

    If you are looking for the easy way, (I mean, who wouldn’t) I would recommend simply making a folder named “.icons” in your “Home” and moving your icon pack into there. Then, just extract it (by right clicking and picking something like, well, “extract”) and and see if it shows up in Gnome Tweak Tool or, if you are using another DE (Desktop Environment) such as KDE, XFCE, or Cinnamon, its probably under something like “Themes and Appearance”, and just select it.

    If it does not show up, then go back into the “.icons” folder you just created and click on your icon pack. Sometimes, the actual folder containing the icons is within it (for example, upon opening the folder, you might see two folder labeled something like “Gnome 2.8” and “Gnome 3.2”. This means that there are two versions of the icon set, so just move whichever set fits your needs directly into the “.icons” folder.

    NOTE: Any folder beginning with a dot (".") will by default be hidden from view. To see your new folder, just select “Sow Hidden Files” from some menu at the top of your file explorer.

    Hope this helps, and the method from above (really) isn’t as complicated as it looks or sounds. I just tried to be thorough, but as a consequence, it looks like the process might be a bit tedious even though it isn’t that bad:slight_smile:

    your instruction is very useful.

    Thank you for the compliment:slight_smile:.

    I couldn’t manage to install icon pack

    Where did you get stuck? What happened? What icon pack and Desktop Environment (KDE, Gnome, etc.) are you using? I only ask about the Desktop Environment and the specific icon pack because I think some icon packs only work with certain Desktop Environments, in the same way that some themes will only work with Gnome (gtk) or KDE.
