Gartoon Redux
Icon Themes
Score 77%
Description:

This is a massively improved variant of the well-known Gartoon theme, used by e.g. Edubuntu. Some work may also be based on the Gnutoon/Ubuntoon variant by reassuringlyoffensive. The theme is released under GPL v2 or later.

In the context of GPL, "source code" is interpreted as the SVG versions of the icons; this means that if you distribute Gartoon Redux icons or any derivative versions of them, you have to provide the SVG versions.

This package is also available in Ubuntu, though it may be slightly out of date. To install it, simply run:

sudo apt-get install gnome-icon-theme-gartoon-redux

At the moment, only the source version is available. To install, unpack in a suitable directory and run the following commands in the terminal:

./configure
make
sudo make install

To speed this up, you can use "make -jN" as the second command, where N is the number of hardware threads in your processor (e.g. "make -j4"), so that more than one SVG is rendered at the same time.

Thanks so much for all your hard work on this icon theme. I would like to point out I had one issue installing it on PCLinuxOS. By default librsvg was not installed and I was getting errors on the make step. After installing librsvg everything compiled and installed just fine. Thanks again!

I've loved these icons for ages and it would be really awesome to be able to use them on my phone. A few new icons would be needed, but I don't think it's a prohibitively large number... I would love you forever! :)

Neat to use this icon set in Cinnamon. The install script is a bit dated (puts them in /usr/local/share/icons instead of /usr/share/icons). Can a package be made available as a pre-rendered directory of icons, or as just SVGs? (...assuming most modern desktop environments can handle SVG icons...) ...in other words the same sort of package that most other icon packs are?

Hi,

I really like your icon theme but I think it would be really nice if you could design icons for the following places :

- Music folder (folder-music.svg)
- Documents folder (folder-documents.svg)
- Pictures folder (folder-music.svg)
- Videos folder (folder-video.svg)

These icons should be placed in the folder /usr/share/icons/GartoonRedux/scalable/places/

Thanks a lot !

Just love the icons....and was wondering if there might be a GTK theme to match it. If not, would make a great project!

Thanks and keep up the great work!

If any other have problems with the icons for gnome-power-manager I have made a script which makes the necessary symlinks.

You can get them here:

-If you have the icons in ~/.icons/
http://emilharder.dk/scripts/gartoon-home

-If you have the icons in /usr/share/icons/
http://emilharder.dk/scripts/gartoon-usr

By the way. I have made icons for empathy, gpodder, skype, muine, dropbox, agave and rubyripper. Becaurse it hurted my eyes with not have those icons in this theme.
They are heavily inspired by the artwork of yours icons. I have copied some of it and so on...

If you want them I can send them to you or something :)
They are not all the best artwork, I'm not a big graphic guy, but they might a help for you :)

The icon in gnome-power-manager is missing
It looks like it is a link to "battery-*.svg" named "gpm-battery-*.svg" that is missing. It worked for me with making those.

I have experiented it in both the tar and the deb.

Beyond that, it is a wonderful theme :)

Xfce now has a power manager, like Gnome does. It would be nice the theme could support it. It's probably a matter of just linking the equivalent names to the existing icon images?

For C# icons: (apparently, the latest version of Ubuntu now recognizes C# files as text-x-csharp, rather than text-x-csharpsrc)

in mimetypes:

Fisrt of all congratulations for such a real nice job.
I installed today the Gartonn Redux Icon Theme in my netbook and i would like to report an incidence. I dont know if its a problem of my netbook. Instead of the ubuntu Icon appear the gnome icon. This happens in the main menu application and so it happens in System-About ubuntu. I install the same Icon theme in my Pc las t week, (before the last update), and everything works allright. I would apreciate your attention about this point. Thak you so much and congratulations again.

The same things happens in my laptop. I hadn't realized this was an issue until I read this comment.
Besides, could you add an icon for Songbird?
Thanks for the theme, it's really great!

I uninstalled the theme for Ubuntu that I had downloaded and installed the theme through the PPA and that solved the Ubuntu icon problem.

If you are installing from the tarball, you need to run the 'fixlogo.pl' script which will install the correct distributor logo. Alternatively you can use the PPA and the script will run automatically.

Your work is great! Thanks!

Could you use this http://pastebin.com/f18104a8e (or similar) as the Amarok icon? The current gray one doesn't remind Amarok's original one.

I'd also like some Java icons (.class, .java and .jar - just draw a cup of coffee! :)). aMSN, Skype and GoogleEarth icons would also be nice.
