Less than a luster ago, the fashion for virtually every operating system was a user interface with eye-catching icons, rounded shapes, glitter, etc., but that has changed in recent years. Windows or iOS were two of the most used systems that gave way and now virtually everything that can be considered modern has flat icons. So are the icons of Papyrus, A package that includes more than a thousand icons, Among which are the most used as Firefox, Clementine or VLC.
The best thing about Papirus is that, unlike other icon packs or skins, The best known icons do not change much (others, such as GIMP, yes), so we will always know what we have in front of us. For example, the Firefox icon is the same as the official one, but flatter and duller. The same can be said of others, such as Clementine or VLC, the latter being the same traffic cone we have been seeing since February 2001.
How to install Papyrus
of as we read in OMG Ubuntu, to install Papyrus, icon package designed for GNOME, Cinnamon and other GTK + based environments, We will first need to install a repository. We will do this by opening a terminal and typing the following command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:varlesh-l/papirus-pack
Next, we update the repositories and install the package by typing the following command:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install papirus-gtk-icon-theme
To use this and other icon packs, we will need to install Unity Tweak Tool or Gnome-pinch-tool, from where we can choose the icon pack and make many other changes to the interface of our desktop.
Personally, I’m not in favor of changing only the icons of a theme (theme), but it’s also true that we can get tired of always seeing the same thing and it may be a good idea to modify only these icons (although I prefer to use a system different operation). What do you think of the Papyrus icon pack?
