Papirus, the popular icon pack for Linux desktops, has a new update available to download.

The latest release adds icons for a slew of Linux software, including a bunch of apps distributed on Flathub, as well as a redesigned icon for GNOME Console, and a revamped animated spinner glyph.

Installing Papirus Icons on Ubuntu

You can download Papirus from GitHub (the icon set is compatible with most major Linux distros and desktop environments, including KDE Plasma) or install Papirus on Ubuntu using the official PPA, which provides automatic updates and support for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS through 23.10.

With this update the Papirus icon set is split, making it possible to remove the ePapirus and ePapirus-Dark icon packages if not required, if installed from the above PPA.

Remember that to change icon theme in Ubuntu you need to install the Tweaks tool to do it (you can use dconf too, but that’s more effort that necessary).
