Numix Square icons by satya164 Numix Square icons by satya164
A square-ish shaped icon theme from the  Numix Project and Joshua Fogg.

The icon theme contains application icons and works best with the Numix icon theme.

If you have few bucks to spare, please purchase the icon theme to support the project and show that you appreciate the work and time spent into making the icon theme. Every dollar counts! 

Here are proper instructions on how to request an icon.

Installation instructions

Ubuntu users can install Numix Square from our Ubuntu Software Center.

NOTE: The price in USC is higher due to it's minimum price limit of $2.99.

Manual installation

Extract the zip file to the icons directory i.e. /usr/share/icons/


If you have problems in applying the icon theme, try changing the permissions with the following command,

chmod -R 775 /usr/share/icons/Numix-Square

It will be good to add light version for the any  light theme. ( black status indicator icons )

I love your theme, but it somehow overwrites the icon of the app in my status bar which looks ugly. I want the black and white icon back. Also I'd like to have the envelope icon back instead of the bell for new mail:

Can you file a bug report here -…

I just bought the numix square icons. And there's a problem. If I reduce the icon size in my unity launcher below 26, (I keep it at 22 because of the large screen) the Google Chrome icon becomes circular. Like in the screenshot :

How to fix this?

Google Chrome has a statusbar icon, so we need to include a monochrome icon in 22x22. It's not fixable.

Hey, guys. What's up?

I've been getting frequent updates for the Numix Circle Icons, via PPA. Is there any reason why the Square version don't follow the same frequency?

I used to love this Square icons because it was totally flat. Now, it has this button-ish style, with that kind of bevel at the bottom. I understand that it's just impossible to please everybody. And, if you decided to change the style (a little bit), it's your decision and that's it; but I'd say I liked the old style better, without that thing at the bottom. I always prefered the Square style over the Circle one, but now I confess I've quit using this one and started using the Circle one. I never thought I would do that, but, yes, I do prefer it totally flat, even it being round. :(

By the way, the Numix Icon Theme has an old issue regarding different removable media icons (flash drive icon for hard drive and vice-versa, etc.). There's already an open bug for that on its Git site. Every time I get an update for this theme, I check it to see if the bug is fixed, but it's not. No news yet?

Finally, congratulations for the great work of arranging different icons for the Desktop on the launcher and in the Home folder. Very neat! :)

Hi. The PPA has daily build for Circle theme, so you get updates everyday. Square is released once in a while.

If you prefer the old styles, they are available on our GitHub page. But we don't maintain it, and it's fully community maintained.

Will have a look at the issue.

Hey, satya164. Thanks for your prompt reply.

Just for the record, the number of the issue I mentioned is 101, "Aren't these icons inverted?".

I'd rather use the Circle theme, as it's maintained by the Numix Team. You rock, guys! Best themes out there ever! :)
