Description:

Here are two icon sets with different flavors:

(1) nouveGnome is a colorful icon set compatible with most light GTK themes.

(2) nouveGnomeGray is a gray icon set made for dark GTK themes. Being mostly hollow and light gray, its icons are designed for use ONLY against sufficiently dark backgrounds. It is made based on nouveGnome.

I found some ImageMagick scripts (Fred's) that can colorize gray images but the problem with such scripts is that they also colorize shadows.

save this to a file in the top level of the extracted icons folder make executable and run it.
just change the relevent numbers, I am using the yellow version at this moment.
The drop shadows dont seem to colourize to much so the look is much the same

#!/bin/bash

#Red = 0,61,61
#blue = 61,61,0
#green = 61,0,61
#yellow = 0,0,100

find -iname "*.png" -o -iname "*.svg"| while read file
do
if [ ! -L "$file" ];then
echo Converting "$file" ...
convert "$file" -colorize 61,0,61 "$file"
fi
done

Wow! You're right. I didn't know about the "colorize" option of convert. Thank you very much.

by inverting the grey icons you can create a dark grey icon set. you should be able to just batch process the whole theme.

Thanks for the suggestion. Because the icons of the gray set are mostly hollow and have thin shadows, if I made them dark gray their looks would be partially distorted. And after all, they're made for use against dark backgrounds.

The reason I ask for a dark grey, is to use against light backgrounds.

I understand that. Making a dark set from nouveGnome requires a lot of free time I don't have at the moment but I might make a dark set in the future. BTW, personally I prefer colorful icons with light themes.

I'm using grey icon theme with Dust Sand GTK theme! Looks like great! Thanks for icons! Perfect work!
PS: can you do some more icons for applications please!? ;)

Thanks for your comment.

I left app icons to be colorful because every new app might bring its colored icon, which wouldn't match the gray ones. However, I have plans to create gray icons for all GNOME apps I know.

Hey :-)
i used this theme under Gnome3, but (example) Pidgin in notification tray like not so good.

By the way, that pidgin icon doesn't belong to this theme. Pidgin uses its own icon.

Report

Oh, that isn't related to the icon theme but to a graphical rendering problem that happens only with Pidgin. I sometimes see it here too, sometimes not, but only with Pidgin.

If you have an nVidia driver, you're lucky because with its previous versions (< 280.13) the notification area was a total mess.

We have to wait and see if later versions of Pidgin, GNOME-Shell or nVidia driver will solve this problem.

I could reply in German but let others be informed too :)

i like it, and actually like the default folder color, but i wonder how you use other colors?

Report

Thank you!

I've put the other colors and also some other icons in the folder 'Extra' for anyone who wants to use them manually for any folder, i.e through right clickig on a chosen folder, clicking on the icon of the properties dialog and choosing them.
