Today I learned what a "Rubber Ducky" was and I kinda want one so I can be a l33t hak0r. I kid, but I do want one (not for any malicious reason) but it seems kinda pricey (especially with intl shipping and currency conversion), is anyone aware of competing products?

I've been using Firefox Quantum for a couple weeks now and it is what I've been waiting for Mozilla to do for all these years so I can finally ditch Google Chrome.

Depending upon how many core GNOME applications you use, icons on the Ubuntu desktop will be a mix of styles, and your desktop will likely look something like this.

For the simple reason that third-party application icons are brands, there will be no Suru icons for apps like GIMP or Chrome or Inkscape, etc. Like it or not, it's iffy legal ground for a software vendor to override branded icons.

😎 added a Telegram function to my post-install scriptset

I got a Telegram account, it's pretty neat.

Been plugging away at the small versions of icons so they appear complete in places like here. :)

Suru to be the default icon set for Ubuntu!

I'm very happy that the Ubuntu desktop team reached out to me about making the Suru icons the default set for Ubuntu 18.04 and beyond –I also have to thank the community for putting them forward as a suggestion (I'm terrible at self-promotion).

So with Ubuntu 18.04 just a handful months away, I've set a stretch goal on Patreon that would allow me to dedicate more time to working on them before the April release date (or the UI freeze before then).

Thanks as always for your support!

This was always my intention behind my "rebooting" the Suru icons (https://snwh.org/suru) which I see some folks have mentioned in the comments on this. :)

Thought I'd add necessary symbolic icons to Suru for use in the new GNOME settings apps.
