La Capitaine 0.4.0 Icon Theme, Available For Ubuntu and Linux Mint

What is this?

La Capitaine is an icon pack, designed to integrate with most desktop environments. The set of icons takes inspiration from the latest iterations of macOS and Google’s Material Design through the use of visually pleasing gradients, shadowing, and simple icon geometry.

Every image in this theme is a scalable vector graphic so it will look great at any size, on any screen. In my spare time, I work on adding new icons, updating old ones, and making this theme more complete.
