Yesterday I was tweaking with my themes and icon packs. I removed some default themes and icons ( like hicolor , loginicons etc. ) . Now many icons are missing ( Network Manager icon as well ) . How to get them back ?

1.I don't want to reinstall the OS.

2.If there's an icon pack having all of the icons ( literally ) suggest me please.

3.If anyone wants to help me out please share their icons folder. ( Location of folder : /usr/share/icons )

This will reinstall the default icons and theme:
sudo apt install --reinstall elementary-theme elementary-icon-theme elementary-default-settings elementary-desktop

Also try this: System Settings -> About -> Restore Default Settings

  • Sorry that didn't work either. It doesn't get my icons back. I have to reinstall all the apps that have missing icons. – user9314 May 16 '17 at 7:40
  • Let's make sure that the elementary-icon-theme is enabled gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme "elementary" and update icon cache sudo update-icon-caches /usr/share/icons/* – Vlad Pop May 16 '17 at 8:09
