Installing Inkscape Icon Themes on Ubuntu

Would also love to add Papirus to the list of tested themes, but as of now it does not render for some reason.


If you are trying out different icon themes create a backup of the previous and just copy the new icons.svg file to icons directory:

mv ~/.config/inkscape/icons/icons.svg ~/.config/inkscape/icons/icons.svg.bakcp ~/Downloads/inkscape/icons.svg ~/.config/inkscape/icons/

In the above case I just unzipped icons.svg to ~/Download/inkscape , in case you are wondering why they are in that directory.
