Masalla Icon Theme Is Flat And Fabulous

Masalla Icon Theme For Linux

It’s been a long time since I did not write anything in desktop customization category. It’s because I did not find anything worth sharing with you lately.

However, last week I came across this beautiful flat icon theme Masalla¬†and I immediately fell for it. You might have noticed, ‘flat’ is the current trend in the design world. And I am a sucker for flat looks.Masalla¬†icon theme is developed by Iraqi engineer Hayder Majid. The name of this project is “inspired from Obelisk name (like Obelisk of Hammurabi in History of Iraq) in Arabic language and Uruk city”.

Double click on the downloadable file to install it. If you are using Ubuntu, I advise you to use Gdebi instead of Ubuntu Software Center because it is lightweight and faster than the sluggish Software Center.

The theme is available for all major desktop environment like Unity, GNOME, Cinnamon, KDE etc.

You can change icon theme using Unity Tweak Tool in Ubuntu Unity, Gnome Tweak Tool, if you are using GNOME and Elementary Tweak Tool if you are using elementary OS.

For Linux Mint, you can do it in the system settings itself. No third party tool required.

Here is what it looks like in Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon edition.
