the desktop customization is one of the things that Linux users most often call. There is no doubt that being able to change virtually any aspect of what you see on the screen is a big draw for many. It can’t be used as a weighty reason in these typical “I like Linux more because …” debates, but it’s true that our favorite operating system likes it. that we are comfortable with him and that we may leave it to our liking.
That is why in this article we have thought about taking you four packs of icons so you can customize your Ubuntu desktop the way you like it, in an elegant and colorful way. We take this opportunity to remind you that in order to implement these changes it is necessary to have Unity Settings and GNOME Tweaks if you use either of these two desktops. Let’s go there!
Rave X Colors
RAVE X Icon Theme is a fusion of various visual themes for Linux which include Fanenza, Elementary and others. It incorporates folders with a design based on Elementary OS and comes in twelve different colors, adapting perfectly to darker or brighter panels, as well as different toolbars.

Shadow is a pack of icons flat, With a look similar to Google’s Material Design, and very reminiscent of an Android icon pack called Voxel.
