I am writing a software in Java (javafx) for Ubuntu/Linux and I need some icons (such as does in gedit for example, the save icon,the search icon...) where can I find a set of such icons?
There are a lot of icons on your system. A directory like
/usr/share/unity/icons/ has a lot of them dedicated to Unity. So has
/usr/share/icons/ (that one also has specific icons for gEdit per theme installed). Be careful: icons can be copyrighted so don't just copy them into your own software. Or they are "free-to-use if credits given to the author". It might be better to create your own if you want to avoid that.
There are 3 main locations on the web for icons (not specifically for gEdit; you tend to get sets of icons with a matching theme). I listed some examples from both sites. These icon sets also can have copyright.
- Deviant Art. Captiva icon (PPA below the image).
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:captiva/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install captiva-icon-theme
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nitrux/nitrux-artwork sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install compass-icon-theme
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ravefinity-project/ppa/ubuntu utopic main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ravefinity-project/ppa/ubuntu utopic main
Going a little bit off topic: icons do not need to be Ubuntu specific to be used in Ubuntu.
And to close this of a generic search on color icon sets on google.
