Description:

Here are two icon sets with different flavors:

If you mean the colors are fresh, thank you! But if you mean there's an icon set named "Fresh Icon" and nouveGnome has the same colors, I don't know; I chose the colors according to my own taste.

default gnome icon theme on the top, nouveGnome on the bottom.
Thanks,

Thanks! The name of that icon is "preferences-system-symbolic" in gnome-3.8 and it is included in the theme. I don't have gnome-3.10 yet (not until it comes to Debian Unstable) so I don't know what they've done in gnome-3.10 to break themes again. If you could find the name of that icon in '/usr/share/icons/gnome/', please tell me!

That said, even if that icon were missing from the theme, it should be shown because the theme inherits the gnome theme. A bug or an incomplete upgrade?

I've replaced yout svg by the one from the default theme in /usr/share/... and now it works.
Strange, they seems both identical seeing from eog ??
here is the original file (I'm running ArchLinux):

Strange! Yes, they're identical in shape and color. In fact I borrowed it from the gnome theme itself. Another trick by the gnome devs to hinder customizing?!

Hey,

you did another great job! nouveGnomeGray looks perfect with GnomishGray :-)

Thank you very much! I think you meant GnomishDark because nouveGnomeGray is designed for dark themes (although some people like to use it with light ones too). I should update it for recent changes in Gnome-3.8.

For GnomishGray, you could try nouveGnome and follow the explanation inside the folder "Alternative".

You are right, i mean GnomishDark ;-)

May you also add a few more apps?
It would be great to have also icons for Eclipse, Xournal, SciTE Texteditor and TexStudio (could also be any TeX-related Symbol, cause most people use only one TeX-Environement).

Thanks for all your work!
Greetings,

Hi, this theme doesn't work with 3.6, it's available in Gnome tweak tool menu, but icons remain the default ones.

Hello Rahul,

I checked the file index.theme from gnome-icon-theme_3.6.0-0ubuntu1_all.deb and the format is the same as before. So the theme should work with 3.6. Probably gnome-tweak-tool has some problem with 3.6. In Ubuntu, its version is still 3.5.5.

Whould you please set the theme directly from dconf-editor > org > gnome > desktop > interface > icon-theme and thell me the result? My distro is Debian and gnome 3.6 won't come to it until its main bugs are fixed.

OK. At last, I decided to have Ubuntu on VirtuaBox. I installed the latest (beta) version and saw what you said. However, using dconf-editor, I could change the icon theme to nouveGnome easily.

So, it's a bug in Ubuntu's System Setting.

Very Nice!
Can you fix the MIME icons (main ODF like odt/ods etc and docx/xlsx) nouveGnomeGray?
Or tell me how to do it.
Thanks.

The mime types odf, odt, ods, docx and xlsx are all included in both themes. Could you please be more specific? Do you use a GTK+ based environment like Gnome?

Xfce 4.10 + Thunar 1.6.0.
The icons have different names probably.

Yes, they should have different names in Thunar. Whould you please try this first: go to all mimetypes folders of the theme and find these images:

gnome-mime-application-vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document.png

Remove "gnome-mime-" from the start of their names. Then, update icon cache IF you use it; otherwise just close and reopen Thunar to see if docx files have correct icons now. If they do, I'll add such symlinks to the theme soon.

OK, I'll check those icons. The problem is that some distros, like Ubunutu, have different names for some icons. Thanks for mentioning :)

I'll try to add the tray icons soon but some apps use their own tray icons, independently from any theme.

As for GnomishDark, follow the instructions in the file README in the theme folder!
