Notes: If the icons don't show up in your menus make sure the .desktop file points to the icon, e.g: Inside Python2.7 .desktop file locate the line Icon= and replace the value with "python" or "python2.7" (without the quotes). 
So it looks like this: 
  • Icon= python - This looks for the SVG file and uses it.
  • Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/python3.3.xpm - This forces the ugly pixelated python icon.
This is true for those menu entries/applications that don't display the correct icon even though the icon is indeed available in the Nitrux theme. If it still doesn't display the icon please report it as missing, thanks!.

Hello Devian, good evening, you missed the icons for GoldenDict and some of System Settings and at the grey menubar, the icons were dark. You can see the screenshots. I suggest you create the folders of different colours, so blue doesn't please me. 


I use Ubuntu 14.04 Final Beta

Calibre, DVD::Rip, Nvidia settings and Play On Linux, are already included. 

Sorry for DVD::Rip, Nvidia settings and Play On Linux, i'm on archlinux, i just had to edit the .desktop to point to the right icon :)
For Calibre, main appli is OK, i was talking about ebook-edit, lrfviewer and ebook-viewer.
For the others, i will report them on your GitHub.

Once again, thanx for your work, it rocks!
Your icons look really great. I have only a small annoyance with them: The file manager and the terminal icon, being both mostly black, look rather similar when really small, such as when they are placed on a panel or a dock, so it's harder to distinguish between them. Maybe the file manager should be somewhat of a lighter color.

At 16 px and even at 8 px both icons are visibly different, the terminal icon is notably lighter (and beige) and the file manager icon is clearly grey. The Terminal icon is also not black only the Xterm icon is black and even then it still has a big X in a very contrasting color at the front.

Nautilus, and PCManFM have different icons available, though you have to edit each .desktop. file to display the included icons.
