Best Xenlism Wildfire Icon Theme for Linux Desktop’s
Xenlism is a technological graphics project to improve the overall appearance and feeling of the end-user desktop. It is about minimalism and realism. More accurately, Wildfire is an icon theme for any system running x11 project clients like X.org or Wayland, like most of GNU/Linux or BSD systems and their derivatives (Debian, Archlinux, Mageia or FreeBSD)
The graphics standards are inspired by Nokia’s Meego and Apple’s iOS icons theme. Xenlism project has been tested on Gnome, Unity, Mate and Cinnamon but there is no reason for which it wouldn’t work with other desktop environment such as KDE or Xfce. Xenlism is heavy and weighs more than 200 MB because it supports more than 700 applications. Wildfire icons are vectorial, which means they aren’t limited by the definition of your screen but may be slow on some systems.
Xenlism’s Wildfire source code has been made with Adobe Illustrator and is made of .ai files, which have been converted to Prototype Template icons .svg files. Prototype Template icons is a script to easily build color by color scheme files. It includes a script to convert .svg or .ai to any other icon format : .ai→.svg, .ai→.icns, .ai→.png, .svg→.icns, .svg→.svg and .svg→.png.
