Unfortunately, changing the colors doesn't work when there's no gconftool installed. Would it be possible to change the script to use the .gtkrc-2.0 file if gconf is not available? Thank you very much!

Thanks for your comment!

Sorry but I do not understand what you mean by using the ".gtkrc-2.0" file. Could you explaining that a bit more? =)

Also the gconftool is only used to refresh the theme so that one wouldn't have to do it manually. The code to change the icon-theme should still have been executed. If it throws some kind of error that you can't get past you can go into the script file and remove all lines starting with "gconftool-2".

For a future version I will look into making something that checks if gconftool is installed. =)

This really is a great theme. If you don't mind, I'd like it if you were to use a icon for terminator, though :p I mean, you could just use the generic terminal icon. that would be great. :) and the pidgin icon would be nice too, though i see someone's requested it already. I'd like a skype system tray icon too, but i have no idea how you'd even go about that. same goes for dropbox. thanks for the awesome theme!

Thanks! I have spent quite some time trying to figure out how to fix the skype icon, I just can't find where it is located.... so don't count on that one getting fixed. =/

I will look into the other icons. Pidgin is on its way, much thanks to simmesimme's contribution.

Unfortunately the dropbox tray icon can't be changed either. This is due to the fact that it is integrated in the source code of the proprietary part of dropbox.

There is suggestion to fix this on the dropbox homepage. This link directs you to where you can vote for the idea using you dropbox account:

I just had to say that this is the best Icon-Theme so far, even tho the icon "shapes" are a little limited, the colour/texture-variations really make up for this.

Keep up the good work! =)

I want to say that I really like this theme.

As far as I know there is only one missing icon. In Geany, I notice that the 'Save All' icon is still the default, non-monochrome version.

If this could be fixed, I would greatly appreciate it :D

Great job on the theme!

Thanks! I like that you like this theme. =)

Unfortunately I can't figure out what icon geany use for "save all", none of the themes I have on my computer change that icon. It is kind of strange since most of the other geany icons follow the themes correctly. I will drop this for now as I just don't know how to move on with this problem. If you know/find a theme that change this icon give me a link to it and i will look into it.

There is also the possibility that the icon is embedded in the geany code, if this is the case there is not much for me to do about it.

If you really want this fixed I suggest that you talk to the guys who develop geany and see what they have to say about it.

I actually never realized that it never changes with other themes too XD

Well, in that case, I have no problem with your theme.

But I do kinda wish that the icon followed the GNOME icon theme... I might have to investigate a little.

By the way, I created a couple icons that were missing from your theme to help out, although I must admit my Inkscape skills aren't the best.

I'll try to upload them after I follow the instructions that you gave to make them work with your theme.

Help is always appreciated! =)

Icons that don't follow the icon theme do stand out, especially when the theme has such a distinctive design. So I can understand that you want it fixed. If you find anything I'd be happy to implement it. =D

Regarding those instructions, they where just something quickly written by me and now needs complementing because of the introduction of filters. For the next version they will most likely change again. Just upload the icons when you are satisfied with them and I will take a look at them, and fix whatever needs fixing.

Maybe I will take the time to write a somewhat more complete instruction for the next release but it will probably take some time as I'm kind of busy at the time.

Looking forward to seeing your icons. =)

These are good, some of them needs a little fixing but not any big problems. =)

The easiest way to help is to keep making icons i guess.

Making filters is also an option. I find it kind of hard to come up with good ones and it doesn't help that gnome and inkscape renders them differently. >.<

Could I possibly have your email?

I'm actually enjoying making icons for this theme, and I'm currently working on a couple more. I think it would be easier to send them to you if I had your email.

Hi! I'm enjoying ACYL! Just a request! Is there the possibility to add Pidgin and Sonata tray icons?
Thanks in advance!

Report

The pidgin icons are being worked on thanks to one of simmesimme's contribution. I will look into the sonata ones.

A lot of apps don't follow the gnome icon theme in the tray panel. This is the case with these programs(I know at least pidgin have a bugreport about it). To fix this it will need a function in the script, not the best solution but the only one I can come up with.

Great work, this's my favourite set.
I've a suggestion for three icons that there aren't in the set: Chromium, Gnome MPlayer and GNU Paint.
