Description:

ABOUT
======
This is a fork of the popular icon theme Faenza, primary developed for dark themes. It comes with completely redesigned mimetype icons, lots of new and reworked app icons and multiple folder colors.

For all of you who want back a total Faenza-experience, check out the Delft icon theme:
https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1199881/

USAGE
=======
The project is hosted on Github. You can download it, fork it, build packages for your distribution... do whatever you like.


UPDATES
=========
I'll try to update this project constantly on Github. Once a month I'll post a release (zip / tar-file) to opendesktop.org bringing the latest changes.


SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME
================================
Is there an icon you miss, a bug you have found, or do you have a better idea for an existing icon, just let me know in a comment. Suggestions for single icons are very welcome for further development! I cannot guarantee implementing every suggestion, but as long as they are fitting to the rest of the icon pack (and I do like them by myself ;-) ) there is no problem.
In case you want to report a bug, please also mention your desktop and distribution.

Enjoy! :-)

This should be considered a bug but it was probably what you intended: the folders and many other new icons don't have the Faenza look. Faenza wasn't just another icon theme: it stood for something. It stood against all the other flashy (read: blurry) icons out there. I think that with much of the icons you have designed yourself you have shown that you are missing the point. I hope you can reconsider this design choice because a Faenza fork is very much needed and Obsidian is very good despite these shortcomings. In the meantime I've resorted to using Faenza Ambience from my repositories under ubuntu 17.10 and modifying it to inherit from Obsidian. That way Obsidian provides the icons it doesn't support but when it does the classic Faenza option is chosen.

+1. IMO the mimetype icons are flat, not much Faenza-esque.

Flat is better for mimetype icons.

I disagree, the point would still stand though: not faenza-esque. But now we know that keeping it faenza isn't the point of Obsidian.

Thanks for your reply. It's very good to know that apparently there are lots of other people out there who, like me, don't like the "flatification" and "Androidification" of the Linux desktop. But please note: It is not (and has never been) the goal of this project to be a Faenza-Continuation. It's just what I'm using on my own desktop. I really love the photorealistic app icons of Faenza (imho even better than the icons on macOS), but I don't like the folders of Faenza. The mimetypes are great on light themes but they do not really fit to dark themes... there the contrast is too much intensive imho.
But I've good news for you: I'm currently working on a new project which will be a Faenza-Continuation: All the Faenza stuff plus the app icons I created for Obsidian. Should be ready for launch in January :-)

I had the wrong impression about the goal of this project then, my bad.

Regarding Faenza continuation: That is excellent news! I'm looking forward to the first release.

No problem, you're not the first one. Maybe I have to better point it out in the comment.
If you like, I can publish a beta release...let's say by the end of the week....

I'd be glad to try it. I expect many people would. I don't know why a faenza fork doesn't exist yet to be honest. It's very much needed.

Everything is looking great except my system tray icon for Clipman (clipboard manager). I don't see how to post a screenshot here, but I'm getting black rectangle with a red null sign in the middle framed by a white square. Is that correct?

Awesome theme, but there seems to be a problem with the SVG file places/32/network-workgroup.svg. It's crashing Dolphin when opening "Network".

Hi, really great theme! Thanks for sharing it.
I have 2 issues with it under stock Ubuntu 17.10:
- Gnome Commander Theme is missing in last version and gets replaced by files
- I get the following warnings when running Eclipse:
Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory apps/64 of theme Obsidian-Gray has no size field
Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory mimetypes/64 of theme Obsidian-Gray has no size field
Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory places/64 of theme Obsidian-Gray has no size field
Thanks!

Actually, I have another comment: in my system the Atom Icon shows insufficient contrast when added to the Ubuntu dock. It might benefit from a darker green background. This is so far the only icon in which I noticed the contrast issue...
Thanks again!

Ah ok, thanks for reporting! - I've tested with the version from the Gravit website, but it seems the versions in the various Distro-Repos require a different icon name. I've updated it on Github and tested with the Gravit Designer installation from my Distro's repo (Manjaro/Arch). So if you install the icons staged at Github it should work now. A new release (zip-File) will be launched in the next weeks.
