A great icon theme.
I added a filter that makes the icons transparent and
gives them glowing borders. You can add it if you want to:

Hi, I am glad you like the icons. =)

You have an interesting filter there, however it don't scale well to smaller icon sizes so I'm afraid I wont use it as it is now. Generally I find it hard to use the blur filter because of the scaling issue and gnome renders it strangely sometimes.

i run the command and the output is:

progname=script_pycolor; RGBA=on
/home/sean/.icons/ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.8.2/scalable/scripts/script_pycolor:12:

if colordialog.run() == gtk.RESPONSE_OK:

However your command refers to "ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.8.3" and i downloaded and have "ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.8.2"

so i had to change the command otherwise it gives me a no file or directory error

Ok, sorry for the version thingy, the next ver is 0.8.3 and it's the one I'm doing all the work in therefor the mix up.

About the output, It is what I expected and it proves that there is something that is not working in the python script. It is possible that it has to do with the new version of python.

Another question, what distro are you using?

I have set up a lucid install with all the same version number you have given and the script works just fine for me.

Can you make sure you have python-gtk2 installed. It should be by default but I'm starting to run out of ideas of what the problem could be. =/

sudo apt-get install python-gtk2
"python-gtk2 is already the newest version"
Hmm,ok, the only thing I can think of is it must be something at my end, maybe a conflict with something i have installed? Im wiping my system and repartitioning it this weekend, i will be reinstalling lucid so i will run your package on the default lucid setup before i install anything, see if it makes a difference and get back to you, thanks for your time and effort though.

Hi, looks like a great theme, but when i run the script and change the colour or gradient etc, the icons always disappear and become fully transparent leaving no visible icons no matter what colour i choose, in the colour chooser i move the slider to opaque and transparent but still no difference, am i missing something, im running a standard lucid install, no errors show up in the terminal when running the script, thanks.

Hum, sounds strange. I have encountered similar problems but not when running the script. It usually happens when there is missing/broken code in the icons.

If you could send over a copy of the theme where the icons do not work maybe I can figure it out.

When the icons is no longer working, go to /home/.icons/ in here there should be a map called ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.8.2, pack it in a tar file and upload it to a filehosting service,
http://www.filesavr.com/ for example.

Next you post the link you get here in these comments . =)

Ok, I see why the icons won't work. I have not yet figured out what is causing the problems in the code, might I ask what version of python your running? To find out run "python -V" in the terminal.

I will be very busy the next few days and might not have much time for bug searching. So please be patient with me. =)

Hi,

Same problem Here. I'm using python version:
Python 2.6.5

I tried to reinstall but nothing, the problem remains. Any idea on how to completely remove all setting? I even deleted the folder under ~/.icons/ but nothing.

PS: you should put a warning though that the gradient can cause some issues on some configurations (so other users don't end up like us)

Ok, I have python 2.6.2 so there might be a problem with the difference in versions. Could any one (or both) of you run:

python ~/.icons/ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.8.3/scalable/scripts/script_pycolor

then click ok and report back the output.

Thanks so much for putting this theme together and to all the authors whose great work has come together here. I'd just like to ask if you had any guidelines or recommendations for creating additional icons as I want to make a set of tray icons for liferea in the style of this theme.

Once again thanks for all the amazing work :)

Hey! I'm glad you like it. =)

Right now I'm to tired to put together a a detailed guide on how to make the icons correctly, however there is one on page 4 of the comments. It is somewhat outdated but should still be pretty relevant. The most important change is that in number five the tags have been exchanged to:

<acyl-settings>
</acyl-settings>

I recommend looking at the code in the already existing icons and get rid of as much meta-data as possible.

I don't know if I'm making any sense here but good luck to you.

thanks for making this, it's so awesome! I have a minimalistic desktop with openbox, which changes a lot. Now I only have to change the color and maybe the shape. Thanks again!

Dude,

I think it would be cooler if the script could add a border line, and we can specify the width and the color. That would make the icons look cooler.

Peace dude!! XD XD
