• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

Pop Classic

Pop Classic 18.10


While we at Pop!_Planet love the new icon theme that premiered with Pop!_OS 19.04, we understand that many users have expressed a strong preference for the old pre-19.04 version of the Pop icon theme. As such, we have chosen to dump the old icon theme to a new theme, called Pop-Classic, and pass it on to our beloved users!


  • Download the "Pop-Classic.zip" file from this page.
  • Unzip to $HOME/.local/share/icons
  • To set the theme, run gsettings set or.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme Pop-Classic in Terminal, or select Pop-Classic from the icons dropdown in GNOME Tweaks.

I think this is just a Papirus icon theme. BTW I use Papirus for long time, I just can't switch to anything else. It's the best icon set ever, period :)
A much better icon set
Thank you! Very happy to see the old icon set as an option
instructions have a typo and should read
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme Pop-Classic
Are there some icons missing?
The terminal icon did not change to the old one
The terminal icon is being explicitly set through the .desktop file now. You have to edit or remove the icon reference to allow it to revert to the old icon
The classic icons are much better
