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

The theme pack is good, however it is not fully compatible with KDE. I tested it out recently and some icons are square, some are circle and some are default instead of any icons at all.

Please, I have a doubt... Can these and Numix Icons be used in KDE? I mean, do they cover all the KDE icons and are the names and symlinks the same? Thanks in advance.

They don't fully support KDE yet, though we are working to add more icons. Please missing icons you find… so that we'll be able to fully support KDE.

Hey satya164, loving your work, thanks!

I'm running Gnome desktop on Antergos, with the Numix themes installed from the Antergos repos. I just noticed: Google Play Music and the Network Connections app are missing icons in the Gnome launcher, they're just blank.

Do you know how I can fix this? You've created icons for Google Play Music, right, and Network Connections is a standard app I think, so I guess something must be broken.

Thanks for your help.

Re-install my system today, file-manager, disk, keyboard etc are not using the Numix-Square icons.  Numix-icon-theme installed and "sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/Numix-Square" gives "gtk-update-icon-cache: The generated cache was invalid." error.

Can you try changing the permissions of the folder?
puntigamer Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014
for me too... "chmod -R +x"-ing the folder does not help :(

No, that's for making things executable. You have to do "chmod -R 775"
