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

I played with filters:

<filter
id="filter1111">
<feColorMatrix
id="feColorMatrix3801"
values="0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 "
type="matrix"
result="result3" />
<feFlood
id="feFlood2990"
result="result1"
flood-opacity="0.5"
flood-color="rgb(0,0,0)" />
<feComposite
id="feComposite2998"
in2="SourceGraphic"
operator="in"
in="result1" />
<feMorphology
id="feMorphology3000"
radius="1.5"
operator="dilate"
result="result2" />
<feMerge
id="feMerge3002">
<feMergeNode
inkscape:collect="always"
id="feMergeNode3004"
in="result2" />
<feMergeNode
inkscape:collect="always"
id="feMergeNode3006"
in="SourceGraphic" />
</feMerge>
</filter>

This one gives reasonable results with most of the icons... "flood-color" changes the color of the outline, flood-opacity the amount of alpha and "radius" the... well, radius :)

Maybe Switzak, you can have a look at this!

Awesome dude! Thank you very much!

But, here comes the big question: where do I past this code? XD In which file and which part? After what? XD Or do I have to create a new file?

Peace!

You where a little to fast for me there. xD

This filter should do it, I find that with a radius below two, gnome does not render the effect on some icon-sizes. With a radius greater then two it will get outside of the iconborder and that would look strange.. =) I might throw this into the next release with a fixed radius of two. =D

@(anyone who might wanna test this filter and don't want to wait)
Just paste it over another filter in the file:
~/.icons/ACYL_icon_theme_ver/scalable/scripts/script_filters
and activate the filter you just wrote over.

Trying this is at your own risk.

I think I need a better explanation: I open the file script_filter with gEdit... then what? XD

In this file the five filters are defined. In order to use the on posted above simply find a filter in the file which you don't like and replace it with the code from my previous post.
Each filter begins like:

#Funktions for returning the wood filter.
# $1 is the return parameter.
function filter_wood {
temp='<filter...

and ends with:

...</filter>'
eval "$1='$temp'"
}

So you just have to replace the stuff from "<filter" to "</filter>" with the new filter-code.
When this is done and the file is saved you can simply apply the new filter by selecting the over-written filter in the script. (Would be "Wood" in my case)

In order to get simple black lines you should change some values in the filter-code posted above:

flood-opacity="1.0" (instead of 0.5)
radius="2.0" (as switzak pointed out)

Hope this helps! (If not, say so! :)

Okey, so in the filter file you will find a several functions. Each function is used to activate the filter that is in that function.

Inside a function you will find something that looks like this

temp='<filter
....
....
....
</filter>'

What you will do now is to replace an existing filter with the one simmesimme posted, however it will still have its old name.

To do that, replace everything between the apostrophes (') in the chosen function with the code that simmesimme posted.

Save the file and you should be done. To activate the filter, just do as you usually would do in the script and select the filter that you repalced.

I love this icon FAR TOO MUCH. I have a feature request! Is it possible to set the icon colour of the systray icons different to the rest of the icons? This would be handy for predominantly light themes that use dark panels, as an example.

Thanks for your comment. Generally I find that tray icons are a big hassle to theme but I will think about your suggestion. =)

Great stuff, as always! But just now the option to put an icon in the menu to run the script seems to be broken...won't take my password.

Humm, strange. It works fine for me to. I actually had to make some workarounds to get it to use the password in this version.... Does it throw any kind of error?

Hi there!
I'm waiting for the new version of this icon theme! Is it coming? However, you should add the Thunar icon to complete this wonderful set.
Bye!

Actually I am planning to release the new version this very day! =D

I quickly made a thunar icon, not really sure I like the result but it will have to do for now, I might revise it in the future.

Anyway, a thunar icon will be shipped with this release. =)

I have found a slight problem. When using this theme in Thunar or PCManfm the icon thats used for a plain text file isn't right. It shows an ugly icon instead of the beautiful monochrome one. But in Nautilus, the icon looks right.
Any ideas?

I might have to upload a screenshot because its kinda hard to explain :P

Yea, please upload a screenshot.

I do not use either Thunar or PCManfm so it might be kinda hard for me to figure out the problem but, I can at least give it a try. =D

Most likely is that those program looks for a different icon than nautilus, if this is the case I have to find out what icon they are looking for and what it's name is.

I personally prefer Thunar over Nautilus, so if this got fixed, it would be greatly appreciated =)

Ok, so I have installed thunar. But I am unable to reproduce this behavior you see with your text icons. For me they are just the same monochrome ones I have in nautilus. If I can't reproduce this it is very hard for me to fix it. =/

You could try to find a theme that actually change the icon and from there find out what it's name is.

Sorry I can't be of much help. =(

That's okay, I'll just investigate a little. I think it might just be my installation. At least it will give me something to do =)

Thanks for trying!
