This is a port of AwOken icon theme on KDE desktop environment. It has all the features provided by AwOken iconset, i.e. a script that lets you to choose between a lot of cool customization options (see the README PDF file for further info). The only differences are in the customization script, so please feel free to report any bug you'd find.


Before asking, if you have any problem, run at least once the customization script, and TAKE A LOOK AT THE README FILE!!!


This iconset is only for KDE. The GNOME/XFCE/LXDE version is available here ->…


  • PPA modality for debian-based distro:

    1. Type in a terminal window:

      1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alecive/antigone

      2. sudo apt-get update

      3. sudo apt-get install awoken-icon-theme

      4. awoken-icon-theme-customization

    2. Follow Instructions

  • WARNING: with ppa subscription you can always get the newest version on your machine. But to see the improvements, you have to configure (or re-configure) at least once the iconset either for clear version, or dark version, or even a colored one.

  • Download the iconset:

    1. EDIT: for now, deviantArt doesn't let me upload the iconset due to its restrictions. So, from now on, the icon set will be available from this link (on my dropbox account) ->…

    2. Extract the archive you downloaded, then System Settings -> Application Appearance -> Icons and click the Install Theme File button. Then, click the "Open file dialog" button on the right of the location text entry, select the kAwOken.tar.gz file you just extracted, and click the "Ok" button. You have to iterate this procedure both for the kAwOkenDark.tar.gz archive, and the kAwOkenWhite.tar.gz archive.

    3. Open a terminal/konsole (or whatever you prefer) and type:

      1. cd `kde4-config --localprefix`/share/icons

      2. sudo chmod +x kAwOken*/kawoken-icon-theme-customization*

      3. sudo cp -p kAwOken*/kawoken-icon-theme-customization* /usr/bin

      4. kawoken-icon-theme-customization

    4. Follow Instructions


To exploit full power of customization script, you need zenity (optional, used to see the GUI - in a next future I'll port all the script to kdialog) and imagemagick (mandatory, used to color icons). If you use Debian-based distro, they're in repositories.



If you have follow instructions above, you have only to type in a terminal window:


And follow instructions provided!

Ciao! Potresti fare un'icona per Smtube? O magari abbinarlo con una gi esistente in modo che non utilizzi la sua di default (che proprio orrenda ahahaha).

Ciao Ale, potresti inserire l'icona di sublime text 2 e 3?
Altra cosa: normale che l'icona di spotify sia quella standard e non quella delle kawoken dentro /clear/**dimensione**/apps ?

Riguardo a spotify cosa intendi? Perch per quanto mi riguarda l'icona di spotify funziona!
Eccoti uno screenshot:…

Sia nel pannello in alto a destra, che nella dash di unity spotify mi viene riconosciuta correttamente. A te invece cosa succede?

Per sublime, intendi che non ti prende proprio l'icona o che l'icona che c' ora non ti soddisfa?
