An original set of vector icons designed specifically for elementary OS and its desktop environment: Pantheon.
These icons are licensed openly under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Redistributing, forking, remixing, etc. are encouraged!
If you feel the desire to compensate the artists who maintain these icons for your usage, please see this page and thank you!
An elementary color palette is provided, it is recommended to copy it into your Inkscape settings before you get started.
cp elementary.gpl ~/.config/inkscape/palettes/
To contribute to the elementary icon set, open a pull request to this repository with your icon(s).
It is strongly encouraged to vacuum all vectors with Inkscape. This keeps the repository lean, clean, and fast for everyone. For convenience, a git pre-commit hook is included. To install, run these commands from your local repository folder:
$ cp pre-commit .git/hooks/ $ chmod +x .git/hooks/pre-commit
You need the Meson build system to install it. Once you've installed it, run these commands in the root of the icon set.
$ meson build --prefix=/usr $ cd build $ sudo ninja install
Not a Universal Icon Set
Since this set is designed specifically for elementary OS, pull requests to add icons or symlinks that are specific to other desktop environments (such as
gnome-* named icons) will be rejected.
Use of icon names in line with the FreeDesktop.Org Icon Naming Specification is encouraged.
Third-Party Brand Preservation
elementary icons do not attempt to supply icons for third-party apps. Pull requests to add icons or symbolic links that would overwrite the branding of third-party apps will be rejected.
