Install Numix Theme and Icons on Elementary OS Luna

Numix theme is currently my favorite theme for my Linux desktop. Here I want to show you how to install Numix theme and icons on Elementary OS Luna.


First, we need to add the Numix repository to Elementary OS Luna. Execute this command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa

Now update system

sudo apt-get update

Now install Numix theme and icons

sudo apt-get install numix-gtk-theme numix-icon-theme-circle

Once finished, you must change your theme and icon using gnome-tweak-tool. If you don’t have it, install it first

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

Now open the program


Change theme and icon from theme tab on gnome-tweak-tool




  1. DO NOT USE THIS METHOD! Doing so for me broke the gala window manager

    ElementaryOS has its own tweak too, elementary-tweaks, goolge it and use that instead.

    • I should have read your comment sooner ! :( Now i can’t restore the window manager… how did you resolve it? elementary-tweaks is not helping…
