How to install Sifr icon set for LibreOffice 4.2 on Ubuntu


With the recent release of the Long Term Support version for Ubuntu, “Trusty Tahr,” users were treated to the latest version of LibreOffice, the open source productivity suite that comes bundled with many Linux distributions, including Ubuntu. The packaged version of LibreOffice that exists in Ubuntu does not follow the regular release schedule of LibreOffice, as Canonical only allows security updates for packaged software between version releases of Ubuntu.

Users can install the most recent updates on their own, but without doing this they receive major software updates like LibreOffice 4.1 along with their Ubuntu update every 6 months. LibreOffice 4.2 came out some time ago, but most Ubuntu users did not see it until April, when it updated alongside Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The update came with some nice changes, like a new launch screen, but in the Ubuntu update, it did not come with the option of an alternative icon set, like the new flat “Sifr” icons. If you would like to try out the new modern icons on your own, here is how to do that.
