Royal Z - A new Icon theme for Zorin 16


Royal Z is a black/white icon theme based on Spring and Papirus for Zorin 16 and Zorin 16 Plus. But should work without any problem on other distros as well.
It aims for Black GTK/Gnome-shell themes.

This is an alpha stage release for feedback and requests.

"Royal Z" goes well with the GTK/Gnome-shell theme "Shade of Z", which are available here: Shade of Z - Desktop -

Download "Royal Z": Royal Z -


What you think? Does it folder icons fit the rest?


I think the icons looks sweet. What I like best about them is they got rounded edges. But yes, they do also match well. And your desktop background looks like armored plating on something, so thats cool too lol.


Looks good :slightly_smiling_face:
