love them - but am I the only one who is getting a full trash icon from another theme? Also: wouldn't it make more sense (in times of the indicator applet being so spread) to make the color of gnome-session-halt changeable instead of the logout button?

First, thanks for two awesome themes!!!

I have to note that the icons inside extra/liferea are misspelt (avaiable instead of available), making the change-liferea... unusable for now.

OTOH, I made a change-empathy-icon.sh based on your pidgin one. It reuses the pidgin icons, and since the icon set for empathy is smaller, it is easy. I have not done a "restore" script, but would you like me to send the script to you?

Beautiful!!! ..just two things:
1. Icons for object-rotate are switched
2. gnome-session-sleep is missing

Yep,thought it would be something like that.Gonna set thunar to full.Think it might work without having to change icons.
Something like:# in /usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop to Exec=thunar %U
# in /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-handler.desktop to Exec=thunar %U
# in /usr/share/applications/nautilus-home.desktop to Exec=thunar
Thanks for the reply and keep up the good work.
Kind regards,J.

Hi.Love the icons,did some editing to my needs.One question though.The folder icons don't show when thunar is the filemanager.They do show when nautilus is used.Posted this question on the ubuntu forum:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1431826
How can I adjust this?
Kind regards,J.

Thunar doesn't have Docs/Pictures/Videos etc. customized folders.
You have to do it manually.
In nautilus, with every iconset you use, you have different folders for Docs/Pictures/Videos, and so on.

I very much like this icon set despite its hefty filesize. However, when I open an image in Image Viewer, the icons for rotating clockwise and counter-clockwise are switched. That seems to need some fixin'.

I'm gonna add some icons of yours in my future project, however, instead of think about the color (I can have it done by script for you) concentrate in shapes and emblems ;)
So your FFW will grow faster and more beautiful ;)

I very like it

I'm using it within a dark window, the resulting screen is wonderful and professional.

Thank you for your sharing.

I followed your instructions to the "t" but I have not been successful changing icons from default white to green or blue.
Can you assist?
Great work by the way.

Did you read the 'customizing instructions' file contained within the tarball?
Which GNU/Linux distro are you using?

Yes, I read it and follow everything in there.
I am using Ubuntu Karmic.

Never tried them in newer Gnome versions than 2.26.1.
But I guess that the change-type.sh script should do its work too.

Did you cd to the .icons/ffw directory and applied the changes as described within the istructions?

Please try and retry them.
They are 100% tested and working.

Thanks for the link. :-) Any chance you could do a version 3360x1050 please? My dual monitor setup could do with some nice wallpaper! Thank you!

I am sorry, but I can't handle a resolution so wide :(
I can send you a half-wided wallpaper, to replyx2 in your dual widescreen.
You can find it here:

And they look great with that theme. Which one is it by the way?

Looks like there's a lot of italian designers around here! I have italian roots =)

The gtk theme is shiki-wine, which I edited a little bit to fit my needs.
I am glad you liked my work :)
Thanks!
