Moka Icon Theme

Moka is a stylized Linux desktop icon set, designed to be clear, simple and consistent.

Moka Icon Theme (the icon assets and sources) are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 license.

Getting the Source

The original source for Moka Icon Theme can be found here. You can clone the latest version from the git repository:

git clone

Using the Source

There are scripts to simplify the rendering process; to run them (and edit icons) you will need:

  • inkscape
  • python3

To render new icons from their source SVG files, run the following from within the /src subdirectory:


If it's throwing an error, the script may not be executable, try:

chmod +x

This script will look in the source directories /src/* and render the respective icons (provided there are changes).

Afterwards, the rendered icons need to be installed. To do this, you may just copy the Moka directory to ~/.local/share/icons/Moka. However, if you, lets say, added an icon named web-example and want to install only this particular icon, then you should run

find -name 'web-example.png' -exec cp --parents {} ~/.local/share/icons/ \;

from inside of this repository's root directory.

Building/Installing Moka

You can build and install the theme from source or run the included install script.

sudo make install
