It would certainly be possible, and very easy to do with filters. However, rsvg which is used by gnome to render the icons has a bug that makes blurred object render incorrectly for some sizes. This is enough reason for me not to implement it in the official release as I think it looks bad.

Here is the bug: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=155974

It was reported 2004 and I have submitted a patch for it but nothing indicates it is going to be fixed soon. It isn't even marked confirmed. =(

so, i've added a guayadeque icon to the real_icons apps folder and added a link to it in the other apps folder, and it shows up just fine, but I can't get any of the scripts to work on it. (ie it does not change color when I change the rest of the theme.)

so... how can I get the script to affect it?

First of all the icon needs to be an svg file. The svg also needs to be structured properly.

The svg should only have one path, and it's id should be "path-main" and it's style properties should be "fill:none".
Somewhere in the svg there also needs to be the these tags "<acyl-settings></acyl-settings>".

If you have done this correctly it should be in the correct color after running the script.

It is hard to explain and I wrote this kinda quickly. I suggest you take a look in one of the icons and see how it is structured. If you have any questions after that, feel free to ask. =)

Well the theme already has an ardour icon. It might be that I've got the name wrong or that ardour doesn't follow icon-themes.

Thanks anyway. =)

I am also having an issue getting the ACYL script to run on Xubuntu 11.04 beta. I changed the script to python2 as well but hasn't helped.

Xubuntu 11.04 is using python 2.7.1
Any thoughts?

Report

I found one thing. I tried running the script directly in the terminalbut for some reason Xubuntu 11.04 doesn't think the script or the file directory exists, even though I dragged the script directly into the terminal.

nevermind. I just had to change the script to say python2.7 instead of python2

Good to hear it all worked out for you. A quick question tho. Does it still work if you change the script to say python2.6?

Report

pissnaround

no, that's what it said originally. I changed it to python2 because that has worked in the past.

This is an AWESOME icon set. I wish you would add gFPT and HULU icons. Also, an odd request for us CrossOver users: Word, Excel and Powerpoint :-) But the first two, please. My vote took it to 80% :)

Python2.7 but I've already edited the file from python2.6 to python2

Alright, if you have been looking in the python file then you might have seen which modules is imported. Those should be the only requirements to run the script. I don't know which packages contains these modules as I have never tried arch... Bash and perl would also be needed for everything to work.

What kind of output do you get when running the script?

Report

It prints this error:
Some dependencies are missing!
The following ones are required:gtk, gtk.glade, sys, os, subprocess,shutil, ConfigParser

I'm quite sure bash and perl are present,anyway i'll check soon.

Ok, then it should be one or more of the modules listed that are missing. It could also be the gettext module, it should be listed there but I guess I missed it.

Report

Gettext should be installed; I checked it after seeing its module in the script

Arch comes with python 3 right? Maybe the modules are installed for version 3 and not 2.7? I think it is something to look into at least.

Report

I don't think it should be python.
I'm using them on my laptop since 1 or 2 months and also there I've got arch with python 3.

Okay, well from the error message given it does fail when loading the modules. I haven't got any more ideas of what the problem can be. So I can't help you without any more information. =(

Well the problem has been in a certain way "solved".
I simply decided that Awesome was not my favorite WM and after installing GNOME everything worked.
Anyway, thanks for the help!

Hi, first of all thanks for the great job! I'm using you icons since a few months on my laptop.

Today I was trying to configure them on my Desktop (Archlinux + Aesome3) but I got some dependencies errors.
I've already installed gtk2 and glade, so I can't understand what's missing.
