I have updated to gtk3 version of script for this theme. But as I can see, author is not interested of continuing development of this theme.

I've asked already: could you put the source code to github or anywhere else so other people could continue develpment?

Yeah almost 4 years late to the party, LOL...

This is SO SAD that the development of this has not contintued, or
at least for bloody sakes, someone in the Linux community picking
up the code and continuing it on, that has the coding abilities...

It's just to nice of an app to die and it really saddens me how outdated it's getting
in terms of a lack of icons at least...

I contacted the Author, not sure if he's going to do anything...

24 hours in the day, are people really that busy in life? LOL... ;)

Hi,

This is truly one of the best icon sets out there, I really love using this!

But I have a problem, I found out that some applications that draw their icons through wxGTK, need to have in the icon directory a valid, 'index.theme' & 'icon-theme.cache'

I tried to update the cache for Any Color You Like, and I get this message from the terminal;

gtk-update-icon-cache /home/foo/.icons/ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.9.4
gtk-update-icon-cache: The generated cache was invalid.

Can you please fix Any Color You, so it can create a 'icon-theme.cache'?

Thank you very much for your time and consideration, I hope you will please fix this...

What python version are you running? Version 3.0 broke backwards compatibility. The script should work fine with version 2.7.x.

Hi, nice icons, but your script is giving me grief :)

$ cd ~/.icons/ACYL_Icon_Theme_0.9.4/scalable/scripts
$ python2 script_gui.py
You do not have the gconf module installed, however it is optional.
python2: cairo-scaled-font.c:459: _cairo_scaled_glyph_page_destroy: Assertion `!scaled_font->cache_frozen' failed.
zsh: abort      python2 script_gui.py

Any help? Python2 is at 2.7.8, and I am using cairo-infinality-ultimate

Hi, I'm having some trouble with your script. when i try to execute the script it says there is no such directory. I have it in usr/share/.icons and i'm trying everything i can think of to execute the AnyColorYouLike script. I'm using #! btw. I'm trying to get the icon color like this guy's.

Python 2.7 is required to run the script maybe you are missing that? Which directory is missing? If you could post the output maybe I could be of more help.

bash: AnyColorYouLike: command not found


If i try navigating there like in your description it tells me the directory cannot be found.

2.7.3 sould be fine. You can't cd to the folder? That is weird.... I really have no clue what could be doing that.

Try opening the "AnyColorYouLike" script in a text editor and then try to run the commands in the script manually by yourself. Maybe that will work better.

hello, waiting for a new version of these icons, congratulations. One question, when you install the theme icons, these do not replace all applications. I detected two that are not replaced, clementine and chromium.

Your will know why?
Reply
:iconpobtott:
pobtott Featured By Owner May 5, 2014
Both those icons are in the theme, maybe the developers renamed the file name of the icon so it does not match anymore. If you can find the proper file name for the applications icon just copy the corresponding icon in /scalable/apps/ and rename the copy to the correct name.

Most likely you have the wrong version of python. When they updated to python 3.0 backwards compatibility was broken. So I suggest you try to install python 2.7. It should be possible to have several versions of python running.

I think it will work in xfce and yes, you can install it in /usr/share/icons, you might need to run the script as root tho.


As for updates, I plan on releasing a new version but have no idea as for how long it will take.

I have been using your theme for quite some time but I just installed it under the new crunchbang and got it working; the only problems are:
-My template folder has a default "other theme" icon, is this just an icon not yet implemented or did I do something wrong probably?
-My volume icon in my tray also stays normal. Some of the icons change. This is (apparently) PNMixer in the tray. A screenshot of this is here: imgur.com/XxyCH6J

Nice theme overall though, one of my very favorites, ever.
