Use Ubuntu 13.04 Software Center, Software Updater And Nautilus Icons With My-humanity Icon Theme

My Humanity Ubuntu 13.04 iconsIf you want to try the new Nautilus, Ubuntu Software Center and Software Updater icons (not released yet), which will be available in Ubuntu 13.04, you can use them right now on any Ubuntu version thanks to a new icon theme available on gnome-look.org called ‘My-humanity’.
My-humanity icon theme uses the new Nautilus icon for the folder icons as you can see in the screenshot below:

These aren’t the official folder icons that will be available in Ubuntu 13.04 – they are custom icons built on top of the Nautilus icons we’ve seen a few days ago.
Besides the new folder Ubuntu Software Center and Software Updater icons, My-humanity comes with some other custom icons, so it’s not identical to the Humanity icon theme available by default in Ubuntu. And it’s pretty interesting!

Download My-humanity icon theme
To use My-humanity, extract the downloaded archive, copy the “my-humanity” folder in the ~/.icons folder (“.icons” is a hidden folder in your home directory – if it doesn’t exist, create it) and then use a tool like GNOME Tweak Tool, Ubuntu Tweak or Unsettings to change the icon theme to My-humanity.

New Icons For Ubuntu Software Center, Nautilus, Software Updater And Unity Launcher Revealed [Ubuntu 13.04]

A bug called “Update the default wallpaper in 13.04” has been reported on Launchpad today, revealing the new Ubuntu 13.04 wallpaper which, like we’re used to, is just a slightly modified version of the previous default wallpaper:

But the bug report I was talking about revealed something a lot more interesting than this: it links to bug reports about some new icons which will be used for Ubuntu Software Center, Nautilus, Software Updater and some launcher icons like the BFB icon (the Launcher icon that’s used to open Dash), or the workspace switcher (the new icon should change depending on which workspace is currently being utilised, but this hasn’t been implemented in Unity yet) which you can see below:
Ubuntu 13.04 new icons
Since the icons don’t exactly express what they do, let me explain: the icon in the middle of the ALT+TAB dialog in the screenshot above is the new Ubuntu Software Center icon, the one on the right of the USC icon is the Software Update icon (the green icon). And the icon on the left of USC, as you’ve probably figured out, is the Nautilus icon.
The new wallpaper / icons have not landed in Ubuntu 13.04 yet and are subject to change.
What do you think? Do you like the new icons?
