Description:

This is an extensive set of icon themes based on GNOME and Tango, with some inspiration from Human, Tango Generator, Elementary, and other open source projects. The project's goal is to integrate closely with gnome-icon-theme, while greatly expanding its available icons and allowing users to choose from 7 completely different and unique color schemes. With the additional source pack, an unlimited number of complete color variations can be rebuilt from source.

The icons and their color schemes are designed to complement my Shiki-Colors GTK Themes and their additional artwork.

There are 7 color variations: Brave (Blue), Wise (Green), Human (Orange), Noble (Purple), Wine (Red), Dust (Chocolate) and Illustrious (Pink).

GNOME-Colors consistently themes 99% of default icons + 1000's more in almost every popular linux distribution. Every single icon included in the set is drawn perfectly at each and all sizes, so you will never have to see a blurry icon ever again!

Important, must read or clowns will eat you:
* To install, drag and drop the .tar.gz file into GNOME's Appearance Preferences, or extract it and copy the gnome-* folders to /usr/share/icons as administrator (i.e. sudo nautilus /usr/share/icons in Ubuntu). The gnome-colors-common folder is a required dependency. You MUST install it in order for all the icon sets to work correctly.

* You may alternately use the included Makefile for system-wide installation, just type make install as administrator or make user-install for per-user installation. For more options, type make help.

* You may want to install the 'extras-gnome-colors' package for extra icon themes (Liferea, Comix, Exaile, etc.) by following the instructions in the readme.

* If you installed the icons through the appearance preferences, for the icons to theme root/admin applications in Ubuntu, you must type in a terminal:
sudo ln -s ~/.icons /root

* In Ubuntu, you can use the official PPA repository for easy installation and upgrades. For Ubuntu Karmic Koala, you can simply run apt-get install gnome-colors to install from Ubuntu's universe repositories. The packages are also available in Debian Sid.

* Visit the GNOME-Colors project page for bug reports, feature requests, SVN and more downloads:
http://code.google.com/p/gnome-colors/

* Consider donating a small amount to the GNOME-Colors project if you wish to support it, or to show your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the "donate" button next to the download section.

Thank you very much for the "Languages" icon! I really prefer this one from the red and blue flags... ;)

What about a new volume applet icon?

The actual one is a little... old stylish, don't you think? =)

I am using volume applet from Erectus icon set also with 'application-exit' icon for logoff/shutdown and so on.. IMO it's much nicer..

I actually really like the volume icon in its small sizes. Since it's neither dark nor light - it looks good with any type of panel or across any application.

The 32 and scalable versions probably need to be redone, though... but I really like the current ones at 22 and 16px.

Hi. Could you update please Human palete also on toolbar icons back/forward/up?

Thanks for your work.

I already redid every single human icon, including those. If you compare it to the old icons, the arrows should be darker and subtler.

This boils down to personal preference of course, but I've never really cared for the hard hat programming icon. Have you considered using a trowel instead?

I also dislike the hard hat. Thanks for the idea, I'll try to come up with something else in a future release.

These are by far the best icons I've seen for any OS. They are simple and elegant. The Shiki themes complement the icons perfectly. Bravo!!

This icon theme really does just get better and better with time!

Just wanted to point out that the lower right "leg" of the X of the window-close.svg icon is a little crooked. It seems to be only on the scalable version of the icon, but it looks like it effects all varieties.

Can you look again? I think someone reported this long ago and I already fixed it.

Report

I did try to see if the issue had been reported earlier - I guess I wasn't thorough enough!

Yes, it's still crooked as of 4.3 from the PPA. I haven't downloaded the latest tar file from gnome-look, so I can't say about that version.

It doesn't strike me as being a big deal, really - I can't think of anything that uses this icon - just figured I'd point it out. :)

Perhaps the file didn't update correctly? the X is perfectly aligned since a while back... Maybe you can get the .tar.gz and overwriting the file to see if that helps?

Report

Just downloaded the tar and no, it's off there as well. Maybe the correction didn't get added or maybe it's an old remnant lingering? Oh well - as I said, it doesn't bug me at all because I never see that icon used at that size and it doesn't seem to be an issue with any of the smaller sizes. I actually just opened the file in Inkscape and fixed it myself, so, as far as I'm concerned, problem fixed - just thought I'd let you know. :)

Always something, right?

I gave it a look in inkscape just now to see if I missed something last time I fixed it, and I had to zoom in really closely but it was there. I counted the little squares to see what was off and moved the right corner just 1px to the right, so it should be fixed now upstream.

Thanks for reporting! you sir have much better vision than I do.

Love it, but how can I change the colourful logo for the menu back to the ubuntu one?

I posted the solution 1 or two pages ago. Just do the same, but without deleting the rhythmbox icons the other user also wanted to remove.

Your work is excellent, however i have only one complain. Somehow i don't like all those green music icons in Ubuntu Human version. IMO previous orange types were better. Are there somewhere available for download?

Report

C

They're green to add a little variety and consistency. If you don't like them, you can get the ones from an older release in the google code page (just click downloads tab and search for "All" not "Current" downloads.)

Since I haven't found a good palette for Pink, perhaps it's best to take the time to fix an existing set. The human variant has always been far more vibrant and distracting than the rest, so perhaps with a subtler orange we'll get a more usable human set.

Definitelly agree. There is no need for other color variants for now. New Human looks better, less saturated..

Don't worry, it's already done. It just needs packaging and uploading, so it'll be there in a few minutes.

Anyone who prefers the brighter old version can grab packages older than 4.3 from the project page once 4.3 is uploaded.
