Humanity Style DropBox Icons

Continuing our series on ‘Humanity Style Icons’ for other applications we arrive at cloud storage service DropBox.
There are two different versions available currently: –

dropbox-example-01 dropbox-example-02


Download the replacement icons @
Extract the archive.
Hit Alt+F2 and type: –

  • gksu nautilus /usr/share/icons/hicolor

Now copy the contents of either hicolor-01 or 02 (depnding on which icons you prefer) into this folder.
Next you MUST refresh the icon cache or you won’t notice a difference!
Open a terminal and type/paste: –

  • sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor

Now restart DropBox and youll find your new icons sitting in the panel.


This is the first release of these icons and as such there are only two choices.
A .svg is included with even more choices if you wish to tweak, customize or change the icons yourself.
