Hi, and sorry for the late reply.
Since there are a couple of different options available, exactly which instructions did you use?
Anyway, I just changed something in the instructions, so maybe it will install fine if you try again. Remember to select the correct icons name (LilaU-SOMENAME, not LilaU), and maybe restart the computer afterwards. - Mar 04 2014
Not really.
From what I understand, the main compatibility problem between gnome and KDE is that KDE avoids using svg icons. So, here is how you can turn the svg icons to png:
1. Install inkscape and decompress Lila-Ubuntu.tar.bz2 inside your home folder.
2. Replace all the symbolic links with icons, because we will rename the icons to .png, and the links will be broken. In a terminal:
mkdir Lila-KDE; cp -r -L -t Lila-KDE Lila-Ubuntu/*
3. Use inkscape from the terminal to export to png:
cd Lila-KDE; find -depth -name "*.svg" | while read i; do inkscape -f "$i" -e "${i/.svg}".png; done
(This exports to the original size of the svgs. You can use e.g. "inkscape -h 48" to indicate an icon height of 48px.

One thing you could do now is move this new folder to your kde icons folder, and see if it works. If it doesn't, you might have to make a copy of your default kde theme (Oxygen, right?), and replace its icons one by one, renaming when necessary. Also, you will have to make the necessary changes to the index.theme file. - Feb 04 2010
Port to KDE, huh?
Truth is, I have never really used KDE, so I am not really interested in spending time renaming a bunch of icons that I will not be using. Plus, it is a lot more difficult to do testing when you are not familiar with an environment.
I would provide hints to anyone who might be interested in doing this, however. There used to be a Lila-KDE theme, and you can find the svg icons in http://prdownload.berlios.de/lila-theme/lila-kde-svg-0.8.3.tar.bz2, so you would probably end up with a pretty complete theme.

Sorry for disappointing you! - Feb 03 2010

Thanks, and thanks for catching that mistake! Fixed it. (But the Dropbox server seems to be down, so it might not appear corrected until later today)

Also, have you tried any new color combinations? Please share! - Feb 03 2010
Could you try again in 10 minutes? It is in my dropbox account and I messed something up. - Jan 06 2010

On the MagIcons thread, they advise installing python-glade2.
Please let me know if that fixes your problem, so that I can update the instructions. - Dec 19 2011
Hi!
Actually, I am not responsible for Magicons, so you should ask AlexiBaba about this. Of course, he will probably tell you that although he has made it very easy to add magicons compatibility to iconsets, he has left it up to the artists themselves to decide whether they want to do that or not. - Jul 11 2010
Fixed them, thanks! - Jul 05 2010
It might help to run in the terminal:
sudo ln -s ~/.icons /root/.icons

and also:
sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root/.themes

This way, when you run applications like synaptic, which need root access, the root account can also access the themes and icons you have installed in your user account. - Apr 30 2010
If you are using Humanities or Humanities-Dark on Ubuntu 9.10 or earlier, then you should install the latest versions of Humanity (http://launchpadlibrarian.net/44046745/humanity-icon-theme_0.5.2_all.deb) and ubuntu-mono (http://launchpadlibrarian.net/45037025/ubuntu-mono_0.0.18_all.deb). All non-colored icons are inherited from these two themes.

Hi, I cannot think of something right now. However, I will be doing a new release for Lucid (end March), and I am planning to add a separate 'dark' download. - Mar 31 2010
Hi, I will be doing a new release for Lucid (end March), so I will incorporate any necessary changes then. - Mar 31 2010
The thing to remember is that Humanity is an svg icon theme. Unlike PNGs, SVGs are coded in xml and can be opened in gedit. So, if you want to change the black in an icon with white, you open the icon in gedit and replace 000000 with ffffff (hex rgb values). For multiple files, you may use the sed command from the terminal.
The difference between Humanity-Colors and Humanity is that Humanity uses 30 or so different shades of orange and brown, while Humanity-Colors only uses 4. So, if you do find&replace for these 4 color codes, you get a new theme. - Feb 27 2010
Just did that. Thanx for the tip! - Jan 12 2010
Thanx! Sorry, but I will be keeping the original grey icons for sound and network. - Jan 10 2010
That would take an enormous amount of work, though! - Dec 29 2009
I am glad you like this. And thanks for the link to your lovely icons! However, Humanity-Colors contains exactly the same icons as the original Humanity set. I have changed the colors in some icons, but I have not made any other changes. - Dec 28 2009
I think I understand why you are right. I'll try to change this soon.b - Dec 22 2009
I really think this discussion is getting out of hand. Eclip-X sounds like an interesting and ambitious project. Humanity-Colors is not a theme editor, it is just a set of icon themes. Some people might prefer it that way.
For the record, I did try to find a colorizable version of the Humanity icons before deciding to make my own. It would have saved me some work after all! - Dec 21 2009
Thanx!
You are right about the extracting part, I 'll probably update the instructions. - Dec 18 2009
Danke sehr :)

Fuer gelb kannst du dass probieren:
cd ~/Humanity-Colors; find . -type f | xargs sed -i -e "s/edd563/fdef72/g" -e "s/e08223/e2cb0b/g" -e "s/cd8033/d7c20f/g" -e "s/bb5e12/b6970d/g" -e "s/Humanity-Colors/Humanity-Star/g"; cd ~; mv Humanity-Colors ~/.icons/Humanity-Star;

Vielleicht werde ich die Instruktionen vereinfachen. Die Phasen 2 und 3 sind nicht noetig wenn man kein ganz eigenes Iconset will.
Um mehrere Farbkombinazionen zu finden, kannst du ein Program wie "Agave" benutzen. Es zeigt die HexCodes fuer jede Farbe. Und dann kannst du diese HexCodes benutzen um deine eigene Terminal-Command zu schaffen.

P.S. Sorry for the awful German!

Hi! For Lila-Ubuntu, decompress the Lila-Ubuntu.tar.bz2 package, and install in Magicons the LilaU.tar.bz2 file you will find inside. (I guess I have to simplify this procedure soon.) - May 13 2010
