It was created by Patryk Goworowski and it is another icon theme we bring you today to beautify your desktop with.

Take a look at the flat icon set on my Unity 7 Desktop with the Flat-Plat theme:

This is easy on Ubuntu and Linux Mint:

If you aren’t one to use the CLI you can use the equivalent .deb for 14.04 Trusty Tahr or 16.04 Xenial Xerus.

You can install Oranchelo from AUR:

$ yaourt oranchelo-icon-theme-git

You can download and install Oranchelo .rpm package for Fedora 24/25.

Uninstall Oranchelo Icons in Linux?

No worries. Just uninstall it from the Software Center or remove the PPA yourself in Ubuntu based distros using:

$ sudo apt-get remove oranchelo-icon-theme
$ sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:oranchelo/oranchelo-icon-theme

If you’ve installed using .deb or .rpm, you can remove it using your package manager.

I hope you like the Icons? Don’t forget that it’s important to always have beautiful wallpapers to go with your icon selections because icons don’t stand alone.
