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.




Changelog:

GNOME-Colors depends on the package "gnome-icon-theme". If you don't use GNOME, make sure you have it!

5.5.1 (2009-10-28)
* Add icons for Empathy.
* Add better support for Ubuntu Karmic's panel applets.
* Minor updates and clean-ups on some icons.

5.5 (2009-09-25)
* New, redesigned folders!
* Add folder-xdg icons for Karmic/GNOME 2.28.
* Add some new icons/update others for better Karmic support.
* Minor bugfixes.

It's very recommended to remove any existing version before upgrading!

You MUST install "gnome-colors-common" as well! otherwise you'll have a broken icon set and clowns will eat you.

 Evince and Mozilla

Hmm... I'm not sure replacing the Evince icon with an Adobe Acrobat Reader one is such a good idea? What's your reasoning behind this?

You said ``mozilla doesn't like custom icons, so it's better to do this in "extras"´´, but the extras-gnome-colors archive found here does not contain the Tango Firefox icons, nor does it have any Thunderbird icons. What do we do if we want the Tango icons back?

Mmmm As for evince, perhaps you're right. I'll test around and see how it looks best, although being a pdf reader, a pdf icon does suit it.

As for Firefox/Thunderbird, pretty much every source I've read says that modifying the mozilla logos, putting custom icons for their applications, etc is either violating their trademark or strongly discouraged.

Since it's best to avoid any trouble, and I don't want to mess with the brand recognition that their original icons bring, I hope you can understand why the change was made.

I can do this in "Extras", though, since that package is at-your-own-risk and isn't limited to the same things as the actual icon set. I'm not sure if you've noticed, but the extras do include Firefox icons - the beautiful new ones from v3.5. Currently the extras will only theme Firefox 3.0.11, you may need to change the folder name for an older version of Firefox.

Also, from looking at the stats - most people do not install the extras. Since the extras have always been needed for Firefox consistency, now without the tango firefox icons, even people who do not install the extras will have a consistent icon for the application under every circumstance.

I'm not sure the Acrobat icon can really be considered a generic PDF icon. The only way to link it to PDFs is if you're already familiar with Acrobat. (Not having used Acrobat products for a couple of years now, it took me a while to realise where you got the new icon from.)

As you're citing trademark issues for the removal of the Mozilla icons, I think the Adobe icon might suffer from the same fate: http://www.adobe.com/misc/linking.html#producticons

And it would seem even worse to me to use Adobe's icon for a program that's not even theirs, as people might get the wrong idea.

I did notice the new Firefox icon. And while it's shiny and pretty, it doesn't fit in with the rest anymore. The main reason for me to use the GNOME-colors icon theme (apart from that it's absolutely gorgeous!) is the feeling of consistency it gives to my desktop. With every other icon breathing Tango, Firefox looks out of place now.

For this reason, I hope you'll reconsider putting the Tango Mozilla icons back in extras.

I hope my comments don't sound too harsh. I really don't mean them to be negative. I know 'text on the internet' can easily be misinterpreted that way. I just wanted to give my 2 eurocents worth of feedback and think you're doing a fantastic job!

Don't worry, your concerns are valid, so I won't misinterpret them.

I already fixed the Evince issue upstream, so that will be done by the time I do the next update.

As for Thunderbird, I'll see if I can add back the Thunderbird ones to Extras. Since "extras" is for personal use only it should be ok to add those custom icons - and if someone doesn't wish to install extras, their icons will just revert to default and they won't notice any inconsistency, which is the ideal case.

In Firefox's case, it's a bit trickier. The new icons are so beautiful it's a shame to replace it with anything else, tango or otherwise. While the style is not necessarily the same, it is included in the right sizes and it's not glossy enough to be distracting or stand out from the rest.

Also, Firefox is probably the most universal application in a linux distribution. It might be best to leave it as close to default as possible, so that anyone who switches from another OS will quickly find firefox painlessly.

Ok, I'll just put my trust in your better judgement. :) I'm sure I'll get used to the new icon soon enough.

If I'm the only reason you're adding the Thunderbird icon, you needn't bother. I use webmail exclusively these days. So it's up to you. It may be better to treat all the Mozilla icons the same anyway.

Thanks for your feedback either way, sometimes things need to be discussed further than in changelog format :P

All in all, I'm just trying to keep the main icon sets clean so that they can continue being free and don't inconvenience anyone else.

If more people want the tango-esque icons back, then I'll add them to the extras package for personal use. However, for now, I think the new official branding in extras is so well designed, that even if it's a little different from Tango style, it still fits nicely in a gnome-colors desktop.

 I miss a few icons

 
 by MrMagical on: Jun 15 2009

Hi, I don't know why you removed them but I miss a few icons which I think were included in older releases.
These are:

nvidia-settings (Settings for NVIDIA graphics cards)
ubuntu-tweak (Awesome utility for tweaking hidden settings)
nautilus-actions (An app for adding extra items to the right click menu in Nautilus)

I've noticed how a lot of the application icons get removed. This is sad, mostly because it's one of the biggest reasons why I even use this theme.
It used to allow me to quickly get a set of beautiful and consistent set of icons on the entire system.

nvidia-settings and ubuntu-tweak didn't actually use the old icons, but theirs.

The only reason any icon gets removed is because their applications hardcode theirs (and therefore including them is redundant and creates inconsistencies) or because the newer version of these applications already include or have better, more complete versions of their icons. This happens when developers don't put their icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor or they're intentionally hardcoded.

As for nautilus-actions, they will be included in next version - they just had to be removed temporarily since there are new file manager icons, so the old ones would create inconsistency. They'll be added back once I create new ones based on the new file manager icon design. In the meantime, nautilus-actions has their own tango icons, so this shouldn't cause any blurry icons until then.

I just installed gtkpod (from Ubuntu Jaunty repos), but they are already using theme icons all across. The only icon that seems to stick out is the "add folder" one. It doesn't seem necessary to add a gtkpod theme for just one toolbar icon.

I've already explained it above, but in short, it's bad to use custom mozilla icons for their applications in the main set. The icons are available in the extras package for personal use, though.

 Midori

Wonderful work so far. I have no clue how you can update your icons so faithfully and constantly. Just curious, though, why did you remove the Midori icon? It now looks like a 48x48 icon scaled down to half that size.

The version I have installed already provides the icon up to scalable sizes, so it was redundant. However, if older versions don't, then I'll add back the Midori icons.

I just checked their website, and their latest .tar.bz2 doesn't have all sizes... Weird that my installed copy does.

Well, I've added back the icons so they will be there with next update.

The new Firefox icons (extras) are nice and all, but they don't really match the rest of the GNOME Colors set, I think you should add the old Tango Firefox icons as well.
