Oranchelo Is A Fresh, Flat And Fabulous Icon Theme For Linux

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 the 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:

  • Hello Abhishek,
    Just wish to send a message to the maker that the newest update with the blue flat icons looks very good. However, it would be great if we could choose between the previous packages with colorful icons. Those icons are better for the eyes if we look the screen hours and hous each day.
