Brief: This article shows you how to install Oranchelo icon theme on Ubuntu, Linux Mint and other Linux distributions.
If you remember the list of best icon themes for Ubuntu 16.04, you might have noticed that most of the icon themes were flat. It’s the design trend and I must admit that flat is fab.
Numix icon theme has ruled this domain for last few years but as it seems that the Numix developers are busy with other projects, there are new icon themes getting noticed and gaining popularity. Arc theme is one such example. It is now default theme in some Linux distributions including Apricity OS.
One such ‘new’ icon theme that caught my eye is Oranchelo. It’s flat as well and looks absolutely charming. Just have a look at some sample icons:
