Paper Icon Theme

Paper is a modern freedesktop icon theme whose design is based around the use of bold colours and simple geometric shapes to compose icons. Each icon has been meticulously designed for pixel-perfect viewing.

While it does take some inspiration from the icons in Google’s Material Design, some aspects have been adjusted to better suit a desktop environment.

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 gimp.png or system-shutdown.svg
  • A short description of the application or software that you are requesting an icon for.

Note: some software ships hardcoded icons, meaning when you install icons are not placed in the system-wide directory /usr/share/icons which makes them unthemeable.
