The Numix circle icon theme for Arch Linux is packaged in the Arch User Repository (AUR). You may wish to read more about the AUR and how it works before you continue. However, I will provide the steps with explanations here for reference.
cd ~/Downloads && tar xf numix-circle-icon-theme-git.tar.gz. After this step is complete, you will be in the Downloads subdirectory of your home folder.
cd numix-circle-icon-theme-gitto enter the subdirectory containing the extracted tarball.
makepkg -sin your terminal. The program will call in the PKGBUILD script for your package, download the required dependencies (the
-soption), and proceed to make a new, XZ-compressed tarball containing the install package.
sudoto manage system tasks, use step 7 instead. If not, become root with
su -, then enter your root password. Then enter
pacman -U numix-circle-icon-theme-git-$VERSION-any.tar.xz, where $VERSION is the package version you compiled. If you are using the BASH shell and
bash-completionis installed and enabled for root commands, you can auto-complete the package name by pressing TAB. Follow the prompts to install the package. After a few moments, the installation will complete and you will have the Numix circle icon theme installed. After the package installs, type
exitto leave root access.
sudoto run system tasks, type
sudo pacman -U numix-circle-icon-theme-git-$VERSION-any.tar.xz(where $VERSION is the package version you compiled), and enter your password when prompted. If you are using the BASH shell and
bash-completionis installed and enabled in your .bashrc for
sudocommands, you can auto-complete the package name by pressing TAB. Follow the prompts to install the package. After a few moments, the installation will complete and you will have the Numix circle icon theme installed.
