Menda Icon Theme

Manjaro folks use a beautiful icon theme called Menda-Circle in their distribution. The sources are public of course and is distributed under Creative Commons ShareAlike v4.0.

I had packaged the icon theme for my use sometime back and now I am making it available for anyone that wants to use it. The package name is called menda-icon-theme and will appear as Menda Circle

These can be downloaded using the links below.

Here are some screenshots -

Thanks to excellent work by the Manjaro folks.

P.S. Please report any packaging errors to me by email (See contact page). Thanks.

Getting back into the groove after vacation

To those who have been filing bugs against packages I maintain and have not seen a response - I have been in the middle of moving (>1000 miles) for the last few days and setting up.

With the dust settling now, I will back to take care of issues slowly.

Xfce 4.12 packages for Fedora 22

Beta freeze is upon us for Fedora 22 (tomorrow). For those already running Fedora 22, take some time to test Xfce 4.12 on Fedora 22 and report any bugs that you encounter.
