Stormtrooper Icon Theme for Budgie DE

Stormtrooper Icon set is a mix of Papirus and Fluent icon theme which I have heavily edited with Inkscape. It’s a Black & White theme with transparent elements and depth.
Will be available for Gnome, XFCE and Budgie DE.

If I missed any Budgie icons let me know :slight_smile:

( out of topic : what do you use as animated background ? Is it « compatible » with Desktop Icon NG ? )

Heavy and coherent work on your icons by the way !

I haven’t tried Desktop Icon NG, but I see why not. There’s a two ways you can running animated background.

  1. uses of xwinwrap + mpv player (lightweight ways to do it)

  2. the more heavy weight to do it, but also the easist is to use the flatpak app called Hidamari

To use xwinwrap which compatible with both Xorg/X11 and wayland:

Installation of concerning apps and libs

  1. Installation of mpv
sudo apt install mpv
  1. Compiling tool for Xwinwrap
sudo apt-get install git xorg-dev build-essential libx11-dev x11proto-xext-dev libxrender-dev libxext-dev
  1. Now downloading and compiling Xwinwrap
git clone
cd xwinwrap
sudo make install
make clean


  1. To set up a script that makes a Live Wallpaper possible:
cd /usr/local/bin
sudo nano
  1. Insert this command, while modifying the path to the video file you want to use:
xwinwrap -fs -fdt -ni -b -nf -- mpv -wid WID --no-audio --loop "/path/to/your/videofile"
  1. Make the script executable
sudo chmod +x

Launch your new Live Wallpaper

  1. To launch the Live Wallpaper automatically you need a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart:
nano ~/.config/autostart/LiveWallpaper.desktop
  1. Copy-paste this and remember to modify its path in Exec;
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=sh -c "path/to/"
Name=Live wallpaper
