Known bugs

This icon theme do not apply correctly the apps icons

Some apps, as AppImage-built, Snap-built and dpkg-installed apps do not use relative path or relative icon. They use absolute path. Other apps use misleading icon name, for example, GitHub Desktop uses the Icon=desktop.

Therefore, you must modify name of icon in the desktop configuration files at /usr/share/applications. We recommend you to back the modified desktop files to your_name/.local/share/applications because with the new updates, the system will revert to the original file.

Some icons are not applied correctly and look bad in KDE.

Because of this, I will no longer offer support for KDE due to these bugs. The KDE environment itself does not apply correctly the icons.

Do you support for other distributions, as Arch Linux, Linux Mint, etc.?

No, because if I will add everything, it will cause a lot of bugs and increase the file size. I would not like to work with bugs and to have headache. I prefer focusing only on Ubuntu distributions.

Therefore, you must consider my collaborator's alternative icon theme if you want this support: Suru++ 20.
