Introducing Oranchelo: An Eye Cnady Flat Icon Theme for Linux


We stumbled upon the Oranchelo icon pack for XFCE4 earlier today and boy are we already in love.

Oranchelo is a hybrid icon set that is based on Super Flat Remix and it is inspired by an Android theme pack designed by Patryk Goworowski, Cornie icons.

The pick n’ mix approach taken by zayronXIO, the theme’s creator, sees similarly-themed app and system icons from other well-known icon packs of which Plateau, Papirus and Simplex icon theme packs are among.

Not everyone is a Flat Design Fan

We know that not everybody likes Flat design because the folded paper, shadows and layering of some of Oranchelo’s icons will be unlikely to suit fans of long shadow/flat icons. But we think some of the icons are interestingly creative and intricate. Just look at the Firefox, VLC and Google Chrome icons you can see in the promo image opposite. It almost seems like you can reach in to peel back the layers.

Installing Oranchelo Icon Theme on Ubuntu

You can grab the Oranchelo icon theme for installation on Ubuntu 16.04 from its own dedicated PPA, which is presently being maintained by Xubuntu user Miguel Hernández.

To add this PPA to your software sources on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS through 16.04 LTS run the command below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oranchelo/oranchelo-icon-theme

Next, update and install:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install oranchelo-icon-theme

If you don’t want to add a PPA then you can download an installer for the icon theme from its PPA page.

Don’t forget that you will need to use an app like Unity Tweak Tool to make the icon set your system theme.

To get more information on this theme head over to its pages on GitHub, DeviantArt and GNOME-Look.
