For LibreOffice 6 and above, download and install the theme as an extension :!ArgKmgFcmBYHhSQkPf… with Tools > Extension manager.
The theme packaged as an extension is the easiest way to install (no admin rights needed), only in LibreOffice 6 and above.

Previous versions of LibreOffice don't allow themes as extension, you have to follow those steps :

1. Download (button at top right of this page) and rename zip file to and copy it to this folder :

    Windows:  C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 5\share\config\

    Linux:  /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config/ and /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/ or /opt/libreoffice<version>/share/config/ (use a symlink)

    OS X:  LibreOffice/Contents/Resources/config/

 2. Open LibreOffice, go to Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View and change the icon style to Office2013.

 3. Restart LibreOffice.

Thank you very much for the time and effort you have put in to create something so brilliant and helpful.

Could you make a theme like this but with Icons of Office 2003 (or tell me if you know something similar to what I'm looking for)? Or else tell me, did you get those icons somewhere or did you make them yourself?

Can anyone tell me where I can get the source code for the .oxt file? I'm working on a project for school where this is packaged within a Linux distro. Thanks in advance!

The OXT are compressed files, if you change the extension to .zip then you should be able to open it with the associated program.

love this so much! thank you great job brother, it's work perfectly with LO 7.0.3

Ahh...feels like home! Thank you very much for putting this together. I can report that it works perfectly for LO 7.1 (which is still in beta). Good job!

Great set of icons

thanks a lot!

Nice, work perfect on LibreOffice 7

Amazing work.

But we need an update, for LibreOffice 7.0.1.

Can you please do it?

thanks, it's great <3

Can I use it on Apache office?

Are these icons a copyright infringement or possibly a license violation? Can a commercial organization use them? It will not be a violation of the law ???

Hi CharlieCNR,

With the forthcoming release of LibreOffice 6.2 now having reached release candidate stage will you be updating your excellent theme? It appears that the notebook bar they were working on is now 'finished' and out of the experimental feature set stage. So your theme will work really well for refugees from Microsoft Office 2013. Thanks for the hard work, it looks brilliant!

Many thanks!

Seems like it works fine with 6.2
The oxt file can't be downloaded from the onedrive. Please check. Million thanks...

Actually, there's a new icon theme called Colibre for Libre Office 6.1 :…

It's very close to your theme and there's no legal issue ? I don't understand...
