Numix Square icons

By satya164
A square-ish shaped icon theme from the  Numix Project and Joshua Fogg.

The icon theme contains application icons and works best with the Numix icon theme.

If you have few bucks to spare, please purchase the icon theme to support the project and show that you appreciate the work and time spent into making the icon theme. Every dollar counts! 

Here are proper instructions on how to request an icon.

Installation instructions

Ubuntu users can install Numix Square from our Ubuntu Software Center.

NOTE: The price in USC is higher due to it's minimum price limit of $2.99.

Manual installation

Extract the zip file to the icons directory i.e. /usr/share/icons/


If you have problems in applying the icon theme, try changing the permissions with the following command,

chmod -R 775 /usr/share/icons/Numix-Square

Hi, satya164. How are you?

I bought this icon theme in April 2014. After using it for a while, I decided to give the Circle version a try and I liked it very much. Now, I've been using Linux Mint and I'd really like to use the Square theme again because I think it will fit in much better than the Circle one.

According to the Notes section, this theme hasn't been updated here since 25/12/2014. However, in your new website (Numix Store), Numix Square Icons is available for purchase and download, therefore I assume there is an updated version out there.

Please, don't get me wrong, I don't want to be rude, but... I've already bought this theme and I would really like to be able to get updates for it, so what do I have to do? Are you planning on updating the files here, at DeviantArt, again? Would you give me access to Numix Store and allow me to download the theme from there, considering my situation? Or is there any other way I can get the updated package whenever I want to?

Thanks in advance. Numix rocks! :)

+1 same thing! purchased here and can't get the zip archive anymore :-(

+1 Can't get 'em anymore either :(
My chromium and files icons don't change even though I have the icons in the /usr/share/icons folder. Any way to fix this? 

Other than those two, the icons look great.

Hi guys, thanks for amazing icon set! Unfortunately, Files (nautilus) icon does not change (just only this particular icon) ... can you please help? I've already checked permissions and also icon is present in /usr/share/icons.
I am using numix square on Ubuntu 15.04 and this works very fine so How can I get update? I haven't PPA and I don't know how I can do this! I bought them from Ubuntu software center..

Are we going to see updates on here? I noticed that some icons are being added and updated in the circle theme but are not updated here.
How would I go about buying this without buying a pack of points for $5? I just want to buy this one thing and I can't see how to buy 150 points from deviant art and pass those points on to you.

hi, love your work...

i try to get the U-touch icon set but it seems, its not available any more.
Why such a decision?

take care. and keep working that way..

satya164's avatar
We currently maintain a lot of other projects. Hence we decided to discontinue the uTouch theme. It's still available on GitHub though.

I purchased this through PayPal a few months ago but haven't received the latest update. Could someone please send me the update at Thanks!

From next time, please send us a mail at
I just purchased this theme and the Numix Light GTK3 theme. Liking both so far.

This icon theme doesn't have 128x128 icons, the icons in my Gnome Shell menu look blurry. Please check the screenshot attached.  The icons for Anjuta, Adobe reader etc are blurred, however, the native icons like Android Studio's icon are looking fine. Can I/you do something about it?

Also, the Desktop folder icon is wrong:

Please help.

Can you download the update and see if the issue persists?
Can you please elaborate what you mean by download the "update"? I re-downloaded the theme zip file from the link in the sidebar on this page and replaced my folder inside ~/.themes.

Result is still the same.
satya164's avatar
You've to extract into ~/.icons, not ~/.themes
Oh, that was a typo. I extracted to ~/.icons only, otherwise it won't be visible under gnome-tweak-tool's icon theme drop down.

I can select the theme however, the icons still appear blurred and the Desktop folder icon is not being displayed correctly.
