I never saw similar kind of Icon theme till now. It looks awesome. Buuf icon themes based on buuf theme by fana-m, some icons come from Buuf-Deuce theme by djaany & All icons were made by mattahan, hands off to him for his great work.

Developer referred Buuf-Deuce theme to get the right icons name.

It support most of the Linux desktop environments like, Unity, Gnome, Cinnamon, KDE, Xfce, Mate, Lxde, and others.
