Numix Circle

Circle is an icon theme for Linux from the Numix project. This readme provides information on installation, icon requests and hardcoded icons. Licensed under the GPL-3.0+

Circle Screenshot


If using this with our base icon theme make sure you install both parts using the same method. This makes sure that the panel icons keep working as intended.

Distro Packages

If you use Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo or any of their derivatives then you're sorted! Numix Circle is available from the official repositories.

Distro Install Command
Fedora sudo dnf install numix-icon-theme-circle
Debian Ubuntu sudo apt install numix-icon-theme-circle
Gentoo sudo emerge -a numix-icon-theme-circle

Nightly Packages

If you use Ubuntu or any of its derivatives (including Mint and elementary OS) you can use our Numix PPA to get the very latest version of the theme. Fire up a Terminal and run the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install numix-icon-theme-circle

For Arch users there's a community maintained package in the AUR which builds from this GitHub.

For Gentoo users there's a community maintained ebuild in the edgets overlay which builds icons directly from numix-core repository, so you receive latest commits.

Issues & Requests

The tracker for this repo is only for issues relating to the Linux packaging. Please make icon requests here using the relevant template. When filing your request please be respectful, patient, and remember that development is done solely by volunteers.

Hardcoded Icons

To deal with hardcoded application icons Numix uses the hardcode-fixer script. A list of the applications supported by the script can be found here.

Runtime Steam Icons

To fix icons of running Steam games, you can use Steam Icons Fixer script which will connect all icons available from our icon theme with your installed games.
