How can I see a list with the names of the different icon sets and themes I've installed in elementary OS?

I can see them listed if I use elementary-tweaks, but that app is not maintained anymore and not recommended by Daniel, so I'm trying to avoid using it.

They are all in one of two places, so this command should work:

cd /usr/share/icons 2> /dev/null && for dir in *; do if [ "$(ls $dir | grep -o -m 1 cursor)" = "" ]; then echo $dir; fi; done && cd ~/.icons 2> /dev/null && for dir in *; do if [ "$(ls $dir | grep -o -m 1 cursor)" = "" ]; then echo $dir; fi; done

It will show something like this:

App.png
cab_extract.png
cab_view.png
default
default.kde4
Faience
Faience-Azur
Faience-Claire
Faience-Ocre
gnome
hicolor
  • That command also lists cursor themes. It'd be better if those could be filtered out. – Gabriel Jul 6 '15 at 17:44
  • Looking at this solution I prefer to use unsupported and not recommended Tweaks... – avp Nov 22 '16 at 12:07
