The era of very ugly LibreOffice icons is over. A new set of beautiful and homogeneous icons is being prepared for the next versions of LibreOffice.

You can use the Beta version if you’re impatient like me. This is how:

Copy/Paste the content of this script below in a text file in your Desktop folder (name it for example: icoffice.sh, and give it execution permissions:

#!/bin/bash
# Script that downloads Libreoffice new gnome icons
# Author: hanynowsky 2013
# After executing this script: From the LibreOffice menu select Tools > Options,
# then under LibreOffice > View > Icon size and style, set the icon theme to "Crystal"
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-style-crystal
cd /tmp && wget https://github.com/hotice/myfiles/raw/master/images_flat.zip

if [ -d "/usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/" ]; then
sudo cp images_flat.zip /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/images_crystal.zip
else echo "No official LibreoFfice?"
fi

if [ -d "/opt/libreoffice4.0/share/config/" ]; then
sudo cp images_flat.zip /opt/libreoffice4.0/share/config/images_crystal.zip
else echo "No custom Libreoffice - it is okay!"
fi
exit 0

and then

chmod +x ~/Desktop/icoffice.sh

And finally:

bash ~/Desktop/icoffice.sh

You’ll be prompted to type your password in order to achieve installation of the new icon set.
Once finished, after executing this script: From the LibreOffice menu select Tools -> Options. Then under LibreOffice -> View -> Icon size and style, set the icon theme to “Crystal
