After having seen how well the icons I created using
numix-folders turned out, I figured I would publish this set of Numix icons for use with MateriaV2. If you want to have a desktop similar to what I recently posted in My Desktop Today, you can download the one archive provided in the link below, one of the MateriaV2 themes and install Mint themes just for the window borders.
Why the weird name? It's a compression of everything the set is about:
- Numix: The base Numix icon set from Numix project
S5: Style 5, according to
- Materia: For the base folder and icon colours from Materia / MateriaV2
- -Y: For the accent colours, taken directly from Mint-Y.
Now with a readme for your viewing pleasure!
The above will take you to a single archive which has everything you could ever possibly need to make your inteface match both your preference and the theme which inspired this.
For more information, view the readme in this project's GitHub repository.
Later on I may adjust recommend to use modified Mint-Y if I quit being lazy and create a fork of that expressly for use with MateriaV2.
With the crazy amount of selection, not to mention how much space it would normally take, you would imagine there are provisions to minimize the space these icons take up. How I managed to squeeze so much selection in so little space was by making each selection provide only the icons unique to it. Also, since I change the name of the theme file links were recreated to account for such.
It's that simple. However, note the dependents; For Square and Circle app icon sets, you need to have the base set and the common shape set for whatever colour you want. For the base set to function the common set needs to exist. If the base set does not exist, GNOME icons will be used. If the common set does not exist, Adwaita icons will be used instead. If the common square and circle set doesn't exist, then selecting them will do absolutely nothing except apply the base theme.
These are all neatly sorted; selections are separated by type first, then colour (except for
common). So for example, if you extract the entirety of
~/.icons then you will have everything you need for
Numix S5 Materia-Y MATE. So long the common sets exist alongside it, the whole suite will function as expected.
