Nitrux is a nice set - works with dark and light themes.

The link to the modern icons isn't working. Is this the proper icon set - looks good

That box set is nice.

Sorry if the link didn't work! I was in a kinda hurry while posting that reply! Traditional link I posted is of Box icon theme by Lubuntu team. Advantage of this theme is it's complete, light-weight, frequently updated and there are deb packages available to install. Here is the link to the main download page,

Modern icons are Sardi icons. Here is the link to the GitHub repo,

https://github.com/erikdubois/Sardi

What is special about Sardi? You can easily change the colours of icons. Some useful hints are available on GitHub page. Here is another article on changing colours manually,

The above site has a few other useful articles on working with Sardi icons.

Cheers!!!

Want icon theme that can also look good even on monstrous screens (i.e. For those who hook their computers with LED TVs)? Here is a pure svg work,

I have an icon set that I have used for several years, it is dark themed faenza called F-Variants. Problem is that faenza icon theme needs to be also downloaded to get the full effect. The icon works very well with a dark theme, and VSIDO to me has a certain mystique and look. Also found these years ago and direct downloaded, I have the complete set of 18 different sets, although to me there is only 2 that are distinctly different. The complete 18 set is 22mb, only one set is needed and about 1.2mb. The URL is where I have recently found a link, but yet not downloaded because I have them. I would be happy to upload these sets to MEGA for a closer look.

These icons work the best on a dark background, look crappy on a lighter background.
