Pop_Icons

Pop_Icons is the icon theme for Pop!_OS. It uses a semi-flat design with raised 3D motifs to help give depth to icons.

Pop_Icons take inspiration from the Adwaita GNOME Icons.

Downloading Pop

It is recommended to install Pop_Icons through your syetm package manager, e.g.:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install pop-icon-theme

If your OS does not package Pop_Icons, you can install them from git:

git clone https://github.com/pop-os/icon-theme pop-icon-theme
cd pop-icon-theme
meson build
sudo ninja -C "build" install

By default it installs to /usr/ but you can specify a different directory with a prefix like: /usr/local or $HOME/.local.

After which you should be able to pick Pop as your icon or cursor theme in GNOME Tweaks, or you can set either from a terminal with:

# set the icon theme
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme "Pop"
# or the cursor theme
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme "Pop"

Uninstalling Pop

To uninstall Pop, simply run the following. (If you installed it without superuser priveleges just omit the sudo.)

sudo ninja -C "build" uninstall

Once uninstalled you can reset your icon and cursor theme to the default setting by running the following.

# reset icon theme to default
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme
# reset cursor theme to default
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme

Missing Icons & Requests

You can file an icon request as a GitHub issue. Filing an icon request or reporting a missing icon, please take care in providing the following useful information:

  • A screenshot of your issue or an image of the original icon you are requesting to be themed
  • The file name for the missing icon or the requested icon, for example image-adjust.svg or system-shutdown.svg

Note: Pop does not supply icons for third-party applications, only those which come with Pop!_OS.

Donate & Support

Pop_Icons use Sam Hewitt's Paper icons as an arcitechtural base, although the icon artwork is new. If you would like to support development by making a donation you can do so here or by becoming a supporter on Patreon or Liberapay. 😊
