Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

You can get IcyDark and TopazDark full icon themes from deviantArt here There are also sets for just the special folder icons, in various colours.
(There is a link to the icons on the IcyBlack theme page btw)

Download, extract, copy to ~/.icons or /usr/share/icons. You will need to restart lxappearance for them to show up.

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

@ damo

sorry pal...but I really don't know how to do what you suggested. I put your icon pack in my .icons folder in my home directory. Can you talk me through it in a rather noobish way?

Thanks in advance for your trouble...

It is the same method for installing/selecting any icon sets. Extract the downloaded IcyDark and copy it to ~/.icons (or /usr/share/icons for all users).
Run lxappearance (Settings -> User Interface Settings -> Icon Theme) and choose smile (If lxappearance is already open, then restart it for additions to show up)

NB You can also install icons using the "Install" option in lxappearance/Icon Theme, but that requires the archive to be tar.gz or tar.bz2. I used zip because of problems uploading to dA.

PS If you want to set themes for the root user, then run "gksudo lxappearance"

I like it!  Some things don't work, like Thunar.  It kills the blue text in Medit using the conky.lang file and blue test in IceDove as well.  That's my wife's email client, I use claws-mail and lt look great there, but if it down't look good to my wife ... it's a no go as we share a login and have since the day we got together.

Now despite whether or not I use it ... one has to admit: It's an awesome dark theme.

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Thunar - that works fine for me, so I don't know what's going on there. There was an issue with a typo in thunar.rc in the original upload, but I fixed that.

Does medit use it's own themeing, like geany can?

Can icedove set it's own theme via an add-on, like iceweasel?
EDIT: Popular thunderbird themes which should work for icedove

Don't forget that you can set a gtk2 theme for a particular application, as described here. (I'll have to investigate how to do it for gtk3)

[Thanks for the kudos smile  :8 ]

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

@ damo...
thanks for your kind response to my question. Its appreciated but perhaps I wasn't clear. I already know how to install and choose the icons/ and themes.
I just was having trouble getting me head around how to change that pesky template folder so it matched. You said some things but was having trouble understanding it.

Thanks in advance once again for your patience.

All the best to you.

edit: BTW I have installed your theme/icon set on my desktop tower, work laptop and my "sudo apt-get super-uber-cool" low spec jet black barely usable but still lovin' it IBM T40 laptop  big_smile

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

@tdlam

If you look in an icon "places" directory you will see that some are actually symlinks. To change the "templates" icon which is being displayed, you either make a load of them - one for each size - or re-use a generic one by making a symlink.

In this case, on my system I don't have a templates directory, so I never noticed, but I would have re-used the plain "folder.png" by deleting "folder-templates.png" and replacing it with a symlink of the same name, but pointing to "folder.png".

You can do this manually for all the sizes, or use the code snippet I've posted, which will do it all in one go (change ICOPATH if you have the icons somewhere else, obviously)

$ ICOPATH=$HOME/.icons/IcyDark/places

$ for i in {16,22,24,32,48,64,96}; do rm $ICOPATH/$i/folder-templates.png;ln -sr $ICOPATH/$i/folder.png $ICOPATH/$i/folder-templates.png;done

Then do the svg in the scalable directory:

$ rm $ICOPATH/scalable/folder-templates.png;ln -sr $ICOPATH/scalable/folder.png $ICOPATH/scalable/folder-templates.png

You could always gimp the folder.png and create your own folder-templates.png icons of course.... wink

Glad you are liking the theme set smile

Sorry about that. I accidentally posted my password in IRC and I had the same password set here so they changed my signature.

If you have crunchy-dark-grey then copy it from there. Or if you don't want to d/l the whole theme again, then get thunar.rc from here

i downloaded your IcyBlack from deviantart. very nice.. thank you! but getting lots of these warnings

Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:{nnnn:nn}: Horizontal and vertical offsets are required
Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:{nnnn:nn}: 'px' is not a valid color name

that copy link seems to be broken.

but seems to be working. i'll try again after a reboot.

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

reboot seems to have cleaned up some artifacts not showing cleanly. you can see the warnings, if you run lxappearance or obconf from the terminal.

Do you have gtk2-engines-pixbuf installed?

I'll investigate those other errors (which I haven't seen before). Glad you like the theme though smile

EDIT: what application is producing those errors?

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Those errors seem to be very common, and if the application runs OK then there should be nothing to worry about. (Bl**dy gtk devs  changing syntax every release mad )

I found one suggestion to change every instance of "0" to "0px" in the css, so I may give that a go.

If you want a quiet terminal then you can do something like this for offending applications

alias obqt='obconf > /dev/null 2>&1'

Some of my favourite themes produce tons of similar errors, so I have a script to reduce .xsession-errors to the last 100 lines if it is above 100kb when I boot. Even flagship themes like Adwaita haven't been immune it seems.

i was using the waldorf gtk theme, and gnome icon theme. and i don't get these warnings. i only have the gtk2-engines-murrine, which is less than half the size of gtk2-engines-pixbuf.

are themes dependant on specific engines, and if so, how do i find out which themes use my preferred engine?

i don't prefer to disable errors/warnings. they usually point to something which needs to be resolved. and the system is processing a bit more when these are generated.

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

There are very few themes it seems which DON'T throw up some errors with some applications. The IcyBlack theme is based on Crunchy-dark-Grey, which itself is a mod of Greybird. (I think that was written because of breakages of the Waldorf theme.)

Some buttons and grips are using the pixmap engine instead of murrine, so that may be the issue.

For installed themes I cat the gtkrc and grep for "murrine", but I expect there are more elegant/universal ways of doing it.

I've just booted my basic waldorf installation, and most applications, including lxappearance and obconf, give a ton of error messages when starting in a terminal. (Default waldorf theme and gnome icon theme). Obconf gives the

I've noticed in Transmission that some of the buttons expand slightly when hovered. Have you noticed anything like that?
