Refresh your desktop with NITRUX, multiple-flavors icon theme
Icons are sometimes a mean of both beautifying the desktop and enhancing its usability, latter quality especially achieved with intuitive clear clean icons (exposed on the Unity panel, where the used size forces the icon to be properly designed, as well on the Dash, from where full-of-visual-detail icons are immediately picked and accessed, if the user identifies them as their intended purpose).
NITRUX icon pack is a solid bundle of icons, presenting the user a massive amount of icons suitable for Ubuntu's key areas.
A definitely interesting aspect of NITRUX is its enlarged user target, expressing via its flavors various use cases, user preferences, various theme types, etc.
NITRUX comes with 5 different variants:
- NITRUX is an icon theme aimed at light themes (such as Radiance), combining monochrome symbolic icons with squared vivid icons, mix bringing an exotic look & feel on the desktop.
Opening Nautilus, one can enjoy a pleasant contrast between the sidebar's monochrome icons and the diversity of used colors (square yellow folders, green ZIP files, red-ish music items, blue-ish DOC files, red-ish EPUB files, red-ish DEB files, etc).
Opening the Dash, the user is faced with square icons, properly fitting into the Dash, furthermore, NITRUX covers a vast amount of icons, consequently, the Dash's icons look consistent, integrated and occupying-an-optimal-space look & feel.

- NITRUX Buttons introduce a rounded icon approach, while retaining a color diversity and a care for details, dark monochrome icons for Unity panel, category icons for System Settings, full Gedit toolbar "coverage", pleasant-to-the-eye appearance in the Dash, etc.

Pictures, etc, are expressed with fancy icons (as opposed to regular "stock" folders).
