Someone on the birdsite had the idea of applying flat colors to their #gimp tool icons in order to group them. I followed suit and I really love the result!
And btw, I absolutely love that I have the freedom to make adjustments like this. Good luck changing a single thing about Photoshop.
@glimpse @freedcreative @steko I've added a Github issue for it here: https://github.com/glimpse-editor/Glimpse/issues/301
I don't have anything against Codeberg per se, but it's not been around long and volunteer-run sites have a habit of disappearing unexpectedly. 😅
(We also stick to tagged releases where we can so our builds are reproducible)
I did end up posting these on Codeberg, (sorry for any hassle), just because I'm trying to keep things I'm tinkering with in one place. But please feel free to clone and do whatever you like with the changed files as I really didn't contribute much other than recolouring some SVGs.
The readme shows the dir I had to install into to get the icon theme recognised.
I've updated the Github issue after mirroring the code.
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to see I've suggested it as the "default" icon pack for 0.2.0, but we would need to do some related work (i.e. creating a new dark UI theme & rearranging the toolbox) to make that happen.
@freedcreative @glimpse I think grouping the icons by colour is a very cool & intuitive way of differentiating ourselves from upstream and allowing us to move the default layout around without alienating users.
If we don't pick it as a "default" then it will still be prebundled as an optional icon pack, and you'll be credited in the artist tab of Help > About > Credits if we use it.
@trechnex Ok will do! Of course, I haven't the first idea how to make Gimp themes, but it can't be that hard to figure out, right? 😀
@freedcreative that's what I said back in June about changing the GIMP's name! lol 😅
Your best bet is probably to copy the current dark theme and start tweaking it. That was how I was thinking of doing it when I took a look at the build system.
@trechnex I'm obv missing something - I found the `~/.var/app...` location but it doesn't seem to house the icon themes. The `icons` folder was empty.
The location of the icon themes appears in preferences as `/app/share/glimpse/2.0/icons`, but I don't have an `/app` location I can see through a file manager, and I also couldn't see it via `findmnt`.
What am I doing wrong?
