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”.

Install Masalla icon theme in Ubuntu and Linux Mint

Installing Masalla icon theme in Ubuntu and other Ubuntu based Linux distributions such as Linux Mint, elementary OS etc is very easy, thanks to .deb package provided by the developer.

Download the executable .deb file of Masalla icon theme:

Download Masalla Icon Theme

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.

Hermosos los iconos en mi linux mint mate,se ve genial,saludos Abhishek Prakash,gracias.

I am using Ubuntu 16. I installed Masalla icon theme through Gdebi. I am trying to change theme by Unity Tweak Tool, but i could not see Masalla Icon Theme there. I installed numix and changed theme using Unity Tweak tool, but failed for Masalla

Great theme,

does anyone know how to change the size of the cursor when on a black terminal?

It becomes red and smaller then normal, therefore quite hard to see!

Looks great, just switched from numix to this, all my icons were themed, none left out! Keep up the great work for finding stuff like this!

yaourt uses "-S", not "install".

GREAT THEME !! And it makes a PERFECT MATCH with the name Ubuntu !!
