ICON THEME

In the below screenshot I use “AwOken” icon set (its name is really written like that, not a typo).

To install a icon theme, either install via PPAs or copy (the extracted) icon folder directly to /usr/share/icons or ~/.icons

Adding a PPA is often frowned upon, but since I really like it, I am willing to take the risk!

You need to install software-properties-common to be able to add PPA using command line, to install it:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

I have installed AwOken icon theme following the guide here:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/AwOken?content=126344

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alecive/antigone
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install awoken-icon-theme

AwOken is a special theme that comes with a script to customize itself, here is the instruction given by the author, skim through it and you will see how awesome it is: Installation and Instructions (PDF)

Or if you want to learn by doing, below is the command to trigger all the options.

awoken-icon-theme-customization

Apply the icon theme.

Open Lxappearance to change the icon-theme to AwOken.

Here is how it looks on my system:

awaken folder

awaken apps
