Installed the version via svn checkout. All working so far, but missing some Icons.

System is Ubuntu 12.04 with gnome 3.4.1

The icons missing are:
- Firefox!
- Thunderbird!
- File System in Nautilus
- Trash
- Search Network in Nautilus
- No custom icon for starters. (Yes I do have them on desktop.

Please fix asap, then this is the most beautiful icon theme I've ever seen.

This is a nice and beautiful theme though I miss some icons. There is no working thrash-can and no "my computer". I guess there soon will be..

Hi Dear,

I just received your message. Thank you for getting in touch with me! But in the meantime, the problem is solved.

I have read all the comments with this problem, and there in the comments I found the Link to the glass-icons which are patched so that they are working for me now.

I followed this Link here to find the working icons:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=86629

So I had downloaded this solution yesterday night and can confirm, that the problem with these icons is more than solved.

Thanks everybody!!
For the end, I want to say: this is great artwork!! I love these Icons now!!

Greetings

hello together,
I have the same problem with the Glass-Icons in Karmic Koala (ubuntu 9.10). There the icons even do not work!!
The defective icons are the folder-icons as well as the user paper basket.

How to fix this?
Please help me.

Greetings

Are you using the svn checkout? I wrote this comment some time ago:

You can use the latest version of the icon theme via svn. (You should remove old versions.)
Open a terminal and execute these commands: (for this you need svn aka subversion. In Ubuntu type this "sudo apt-get install subversion")

cd ~/.icons
svn co https://glass-theme.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/glass-theme/tango-icons/trunk/Glass glass-icons

Maybe you must restart Gnome, but then you can use the new icons. This should work very well.

You can keep it up to date with:

cd ~/.icons/glass-icons
svn update

I've tried all these instructions and none of them work on Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks, this is much better than running a script. Still, you should probably release a new tarball at some point.

I really like this icon theme. I have one problem with it now though: the icon for folders is not showing up correctly, I get an icon that looks like a sheet of paper now.

To fix the problem where the icon looks like a sheet of paper, navigate to where the 'places' icons are installed (~/.icons/glass-icons/scalable/places). In there is a broken link, inode-directory.svg, which erroneously points to /home/stefan/.icons/glass-icons/scalable/places/folder.svg instead of folder.svg. Fix this by deleting the broken link, and then creating a new link to folder.svg (right click folder.svg in the places folder, select 'make link'). Rename the new link to inode-directory.svg.

Excellent. I love this icon set. Many thanks to Stefan315 for the script. I've downloaded and run it, then re-zipped the icon set and uploaded. Please see http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=86629 for the re-packaged tar.gz. No more hacking required to get it running :o)

This is a great icon theme!!!

Using firefox 3.0,
you may create link from firefox-icon.svg to firefox-3.0.svg to enable the firefox icon.

Hope other system icons will be glass-like !!!

p.s. I am using Ubuntu 8.04, and it's great for desktop system.

I also have hardy heron, and changing that one line is all i had to do to make it work. But maybe we have different versions of the glass icons. I am using version 0.3 available from the glass themes website, instead of 0.2 which is here on gnome-look. Here is the link:

http://glass-theme.net/projects:gnome_icons:releases

Hope it helps!

This was a hard one...

After testing the whole evening, I found out that the whole directory structure and the theme-file should be created from start. The icon theme inherits the gnome theme but that one is a lot different.

This workaround made me happy:
Create some links in /usr/share/icons/glass-icons/scalable/filesystems/
- folder.svg -> /usr/share/icons/glass-icons/scalable/filesystems/gnome-fs-directory.svg
- user-trash-full.svg -> /usr/share/icons/glass-icons/scalable/filesystems/gnome-fs-trash-full.svg
- user-trash.svg -> /usr/share/icons/glass-icons/scalable/filesystems/gnome-fs-trash-empty.svg

And leave the index.theme untouched.

Dear developer(s): Please update the package. And (please²): Trash that 0.3 thing and rather make 0.2 perfect. The old icons look MUCH better.

I'm not quite with you. What do you mean by "create some links"? And I have no glass icons folder inside usr/share/icons? Any idea where my glass icons folder might be? I'd be very grateful for your help.

This is what I did (I had the same problem with no Glass Icons folder)

1. Open Nautilus with root permission (terminal - sudo nautilus)
2. Extract the Glass Icons tar.gz file into /usr/share/icons folder.
3. Go to /usr/share/icons/glass-icons/scalable/filesystems/ and right click the gnome-fs-directory.svg file and select the Make Link option. This will create a link and you rename that link folder.svg. Do the same with the other 2 files.
4. Once I did this I was able to customize my theme with the Glass Icons showing in the icons area.

Good Luck!
