13-febr-2016 : updated for libreoffice 5.1
04-aug-2016 : updated for libreoffice 5.2
08-febr-2017 : updated for libreoffice 5.3
HOW TO INSTALL
1. Rename zip file to images_office2013.zip and copy it to this folder :
Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 5\share\config\
Linux: /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config/ and /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/ or /opt/libreoffice<version>/share/config/ (use a symlink)
OS X: LibreOffice/Contents/Resources/config/
2. Open LibreOffice, go to Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View and change the icon style to Office2013.
3. Close and re-open LibreOffice.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config/images_office2013.zip /opt/libreoffice5.3/share/config/images_office2013.zip
..to make it work in Ubuntu 16.04, Libre Office 220.127.116.11
When the locations above didn't do the trick, I looked for the file image_galaxy.zip and placed the images_office2013.zip in the same lolcation.
thank a lot.. you awesome
I only had trouble with point 2.
This helped me:
LibreOffice, go to Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View
Under the headline "User Interface"
change Icon style to Office2013 and choose your Icon Size
So the new name will be images_office_2013_theme_for_libreoffice_by_charliecnr.zip.
Then follow the procedure to change the theme (Open LibreOffice, go to Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View and change the theme to Office2013. Close and re-open LibreOffice.)
But the ribbon interface being experimental (messy and ugly, other themes like Tango or Breeze don't even display all icons) it will be hard to guess which icons are needed, i probably won't work on it.
And the 'Extra large' icons size adds lot of work, not sure if it will be done, i'll try though. Until now, icons were in 2 sizes: 16px and 24px. With version 5.3 they added 32px and many themes are not ready yet.
I don't know if you realise this but you are helping a lot of people producing these icon theme for LibreOffice. There are many people who can't afford Microsoft Office and having an Office Suite that acts and looks similar goes a long way to helping people switch to a free alternative in both senses of the word.
With the Muffin Interface as it currently is the layout is quite similar to Microsoft Office, not identical but most of the functions are in the same place as you can see in the screenshot below from Softpedia. So if you have a function you could potentially just map it to that icon as in Microsoft Office. I'm not entirely sure where the 32px icons are used in 5.3 but your icons using both large and small look fine to me. I think having a picture mapped even if it is slightly off is better than no picture at all. But don't think this is just an excuse to ask you to spend your time on doing this. I really believe that you are helping people out with this work and I'm sure there are a lot of people that would like to thank you for all of this effort. Certainly I would.
LibreOffice 5.3 is coming out next week (begining of February) with ribbon interface.
That's already available in the beta version.
Any chance of being able to use these icons for 5.3 version?
I wanted to thank you for your hard work here, you have really helped my sister out. Before this icon theme she had no interest to use LibreOffice at all as it looked too different to Microsoft Office that she uses at work. Once I installed this she felt she was getting somewhere as she had a good starting point as she knew what the icons were supposed to do.
I really hope that you update this theme when LibreOffice 5.3 comes out as with the announcement of the new Notebookbar this icon theme help out a lot of switchers from Microsoft Office. This will work perfectly here and be a real benefit for those that want a familiar Office suite but can't afford Microsoft prices and those that care about software freedom.
Peace from the walking Kittie
tanks for that pack it's very nice. Good to have the same icons in both office suites, it's at least a bit less confusing then
Did u make the screenshot above using Windows 10 or how did u manage to chance the layout of the window borders?
Under Options > LibreOffice > View... I have tried enabling and disabling the two options 'Use anti-aliasing' and 'Use OpenGL for all rendering (on restart)' but I'm getting same results.
I would attach an image of what I am seeing, but not sure how to do that there.
Thanks in advance.
Close the office.
Go to : C:\Program Files \LibreOffice 5\share\config\
Create there a new folder. For convenience name it "Themes" . Move every theme into that folder except the theme you would like to use.
Restart office . TaDa.
sudo cp images_office2013.zip /opt/openoffice4/share/config/
sudo cp images_office2013.zip /usr/lib64/libreoffice/share/config/
Then close e re-open Libreoffice
Then, in settings (step 2 of my instructions on this page) you can change icons style by choosing in a list, and among all themes like Tango, Breeze, Oxygen,... you should see Office2013. Theme applies perfectly after a Libreoffice restart.
Thank you !

Merci, merci beaucoup, c'est exactement ce que je cherchais pour rendre plus aisée la transition de MS Office vers LibreOffice. Un très bon travail et merci encore.
What I did was copied the renamed zip file to /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config then right click (make a link/shortcut),
then cut the shortcut to /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config
Thanks again!!! I'm using this in Debian Jessie LO v.5.1
I copied the zip file both to:
Any ideas please? Thanks in advance
The location depends on which linux distribution you have. I'm not linux expert but try "locate soffice" command or check desktop shortcuts to libreoffice.
After you copied the images_office2013.zip just check the permissions of the file, users of your system need to have read access.
Some comments below (1Claude on 27 Nov 2015) discuss this specific problem of linux users.
I am using Mac OS X El Capitan, Libreoffice Fresh (18.104.22.168) and got the icon theme to work.
Directions charliecnr provided were spot on, I just decided to be more descriptive
Right-click on Download (upper-right corner of this page) and choose Download Linked File As... > images_office2013.zip > Save
Otherwise, if you click the Download button, once the file downloads then Mac OS X will automatically unzip the file, and if you compress the file again and rename it to images_office2013.zip then the zipped file will be corrupt and won't work
Quit Libreoffice, if it is open
Using the finder, go to Applications > Libreoffice > Right-click on Libreoffice > Show Package Contents > Contents > Resources > config
Drag images_office2013.zip from wherever you first saved it and drop it into this (config) folder
Open Libreoffice again, click on Libreoffice > Preferences... > Under Libreoffice choose View > Icon size and style: > Office2013 > OK
I have used your icons pack for some time.
I tried use this icons pack on Libreoffice 5.1 RC1 but it doesn't work properly.
Looks like there is sometning different in LO 5.1 vs 5.0.
Your icons pack do not appear in Libreoffice 5.1
Could you check it?
