10 "Really Cool" Icon Sets for Ubuntu/GNOME Desktop

- - 27 comments
You can spice up the look of your GNOME desktop by putting on a killer theme and match it with really cool Linux wallpaper. To greatly enhance its appearance, you will also need some equally good-looking set of icons.

I’m going to share to you some of my favorite set of icons. These are specifically made for Ubuntu, as well as any other Linux distro with a GNOME desktop. So here they are:


1. Black White 2 Style


2. Area o.42


3. Kamel


4. Somatic


5. Buuf Deuce


6. Square Dock

7. Black White 2 Gloss

8. SnowIsh


9. Amora

10. AllBlack

If you know a link or two to other great-looking icon sets for Ubuntu/GNOME, share it with us via comment.

  1. I can really recommend Tango icons. It's not just as cool as some icons in your article, on the other hand it's usable and possibly one of the most complete set of icons. Its goal is to be multiplatform, ubiquitous and universal - and it's becoming true, since many applications (even for Windows) includes Tango (or Tango-compatible icons) as their native icon theme (such as The GIMP, Pidgin), or at least as an option (OpenOffice.org, Inkscape).
    Also, take a look at the Tango generator, since this way you can get most icons possibly for any application you are using - http://mejogid.ohallwebservices.com/site/index.php?q=node/1

  2. Nice list. You might also want to check out Gnome-Colors, they're very complete, pleasant and were the highest rated in gnome-look last time I checked.

  6. Most of these sets are not made specifically for either Linux, nor GNOME. Specifically, Amora and Somatic were made by Dave Lanham for Mac OS X, and are used in their ShapeShifter themes.

    Good list though. :)

  18. I've been using Black-White 2 Gloss for about six months.. I typically keep a dark theme going, so they go really well. Even when I go back to Human or anything like that, I keep the icons because they match every environment.
