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.

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.

the good: great theme. the new outline filter is awesome (first filter i ever used)

the bad: apply to: panel is gone :'(

now i tried color a, filter outline -> apply to all with 0.9.3, then color b filter none -> apply to panel which gives me the setup i had in 0.9.2 (panel ok, rest without filter, just like it was in 0.9.2)

color b without filter -> custom -> status (since the nm-*.svgs are in status/ ) changes icons in warnings, but not in the panel

every other way i tried (copying 0.9.2 icons into the 0.9.3 folders; meddling with the code trying to replace the apply_custom with the apply_panel function etc) had no effect to the panel or broke the script.

help...

Well, the apply panel idea was nice. But the implementation was bad. This is because the panel icons comes from icons in other categories. It is unlikely that I will bring it back, unless someone actually makes a panel category for icon themes and that it is widely implemented.


If you are really desperate I have some ideas of how to get different icons for the panel. I will tell you the one I think is the best. I have not tried it, but I think it will work, but make a backup of the icons, just in case. =)

This assumes you use both the 0.9.2 and 0.9.3 versions.

Edit the "index.theme" file in acyl 0.9.2

Set the "name" attribute to something like "AnyColorYouLikePanel" then add a line under it that says "Inherits=AnyColorYouLike".

Now, go the the "real_icons" folder, still in 0.9.2 and remove all directories except the one named "panel". After that you should remove all the broken symlinks you can find in the icon categories located in the scalable folder.

This should make the 0.9.2 version only affect the panel icons and leave the rest of the icons to the 0.9.3 version. Just make sure the icon theme you use is the 0.9.2 version. =)

Hope this helps!

thanks, i will try that. however, i think since many users use ubuntu (i don't) it would be wise to reimplement this function. the general design as far as i can see (ubuntu lucid, elementary) is to have a panel with monocrome icons and other icons for the rest. and especially in ubuntu the panel color is (roughly) inverted. long story short: i think, no i know i'm not the only one with a dark upper panel (though in my case awesome bar) and a light gtk theme who wants a fitting systray

For some reason the script to change the colors/styles for 0.9.3 will not run in Fedora 14 but the script for 0.9.2 runs fine.

any thoughts?

My guess it that fedora uses ver 2.7 of python. The script is set to use 2.6 but 2.7 should be compatible.

Go to: ~/.icons/ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.9.3/scalable/scripts/

open the file script_gui.py in a text editor. The first line looks like this:

#!/usr/bin/env python2.6

Change it to:

#!/usr/bin/env python2

This will make the script use any version of python 2.x that is installed. If this doesn't work I need more information, like terminal output.

Hi,
Since 0.93 the gnome-power-manager's tray icon refuses to show the acyl icons and takes the default icons (/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/icons/hicolor). Removing these doesn't help.
0.92 works just fine, very strange.
Ubuntu 10.04.

I think I may have found the problem.

To fix it go to:
~/.icons/ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.9.3/scalable/status/

Find the file named "battery-100-charging.svg". Copy it and name the copy "gpm-battery-charged.svg".

Do the same with "battery-000.svg" and name the copy "gpm-battery-empty.svg".

I can't test this myself but this will very likely fix the problem. =)

Works perfectly now, thank you!
And thank you very much for your work. Since I'm using this one, I can't bear any other icon theme longer than a few hours.

Nice to hear it worked and that you like the theme. If you find any more problems with it, tell me and I will do my best to fix them. =)

This has been my favorite icon theme for quite awhile and still is. There is an issue though with the quadratic icons not drawing at the same size. It's a minor issue but when you have icons that are squarish and look like they should line up but don't quite... well you get the idea.

Actually I don't really get the idea.... =)

Maybe a screenshoot could explain it better?

Report

actually I looked a little closer at a few different Linux installs I have and it seems for whatever reason, it's not just your icons. Apparently it's just that the quadratic version made it more obvious since it's square and has a border. It seems any icon theme does the same thing. I don't know if certain desktop environments are picking the scalable version of some icons and the pixmap version for others or if it's just some quirk in various Linux distros.

If you still want some screenshots I can post them but it's not just your icons after all.

I get what you mean now. I can observe it on my gnome-panel for example. And as you say it is out of my hands, so a screenshot is not necessary.

Is there a chance for an actual trash shaped icon?
My little sister said that she couldn't see the trash (tab restore) button in Midori with my machine, she then said to me that she though that it was a refresh button XD

This is why: http://2tu.us/2w9u (3 pictures)

I assume you mean the icon. After having looked into it real quick, I suspect this could be one of those icons that does not follow the standard gnome-icon-theme.

Correct. I attached /usr/share/epdfview/pixmaps to 4switzak.tar.gz for you to see.
