In this tutorial, we will see another amazing Gnome icon theme for Ubuntu/Linux Mint systems called Matrilineare. I have added it to our PPA to make its installation easier, but you can download it manually from here.


The PPA is available for these distributions:

  • Ubuntu 13.04/12.10/12.04
  • Linux Mint 14/13
 Matrilineare Installation

Open the terminal and issue these commands to install Matrilineare (version 0.2):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:upubuntu-com/icons2 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install matrilineare-icons

Enable Matrilineare with this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme 'Matrilineare'


Here is a screenshot of these icons under Ubuntu (Unity):

Matrilineare Removal


To remove this icon theme from your system, enter these commands:

sudo apt-get update
