Icons based or directly from GNOME and other GNOME projects, licensed GPL.

Icons based on Tango sources or taken from the Tango project are public domain.

Some application icons come from their respective GPL applications, to ensure
that all sizes from 16px to scalable are always sharp and rendered properly.
Some custom application icons are from other GPL sources.
You can visit their websites here:
* Jakub 'jimmac' Steiner, Andreas Nilsson, Lapo Calamandrei, Hylke Bons and all
the other talented artists who make tons of incredible artwork for Linux.
GNOME-Colors would not exist at all without these people.
* The GNOME and Tango projects, on which GNOME-Colors is decidedly and
admittedly based 99% on.
* Benjamin Drung and Andrew Starr-Bochicchio for doing the Debian/Ubuntu
packaging, maintaining the official PPA repository, getting all the packages
into Ubuntu Karmic's archives, and helping to resolve all licensing conflicts
in order to make GNOME-Colors freer and easier than ever!
* Benjamin Drung, once again, for engineering the entire move to SVN, the
creation of makefiles and all the other scripts that allow for automatic
* Evgeni Golov for reviewing the packages and uploading everything to Debian.
* The Tango Generator project for making dozens of consistent and beautiful
application icons available for use.
* The developers of "Human" and "Erectus" icon themes for some inspiration and
* The Elementary project for being a big influence for GNOME-Colors in the
project's very early stages. We have moved quite far away from them and into
almost all Gnome/Tango-based icons, but there are still a small handful of
icons based on Elementary that give the project a little extra style.
* Many unnamed artists who created or helped create icons specifically for this
set. (If you are such a person, e-mail me and I will add you here.)
* The, and linux communities for their constant
support, words of encouragement and prompt feedback.
* The developers of gnome-do for featuring gnome-colors in their website!
* Xubuntu, Easy Peasy, Sabayon-GNOME, Linux Mint and others for including these
icons in their distributions!
* The Comix developer for making one of the best applications for Linux, and for
collaborating in the creation and inclusion of the new Comix logo/icons.
* And last but not least, people who have donated to the project! I don't
require nor force donations, but I am always very thankful of those of you who
have donated any amount to the project.

This section refers only to the distributable packages. For theme creation, skip
to the next section.
To install, drag and drop the .tar.gz file into GNOME's Appearance Preferences,
or extract it and copy the gnome-* folders to /usr/share/icons as administrator
(i.e. `sudo nautilus /usr/share/icons` in Ubuntu). The gnome-colors-common folder
included in the gnome-colors package is a required dependency. You MUST install
it in order for any gnome-colors icon set to work correctly. If you install in
this manner, it is VERY recommended to always remove any previous version before
You may also use the included Makefile for system-wide installation, just type
`make install` as administrator or `make user-install` for per-user
installation. For more options, type `make help`. These commands should be run
within the extracted folder that contains the Makefile. To uninstall, you should
run `make uninstall` as administratior or `make user-uninstall` per-user.
GNOME-Colors depends on the package "gnome-icon-theme". This package is already
installed in almost all distributions with a GNOME desktop environment, but you
may have to install this package if your distribution or desktop environment
does not have it by default.
The "gnome-colors-extras" package contains extra color variations that may be
useful to some. These variations are fun extras, and do not have matching GTK
or GDM themes. For the gnome-colors-extras to work correctly, a proper
installation of the main gnome-colors package must be present in your system.
If installed through the Appearance Preferences tool in Ubuntu (instead of
extracting /usr/share/icons), for icons to theme root/admin applications, you
must type in a terminal: `sudo ln -s ~/.icons /root`
Please read the "Authors" and "Copying" files!
This section refers only to the sources package. The sources package can be
downloaded separately from the distributable package.
GNOME-Colors supports complete, scripted recoloring and the creation of new
color variations automatically. To create a custom version of gnome-colors, just
follow the following instructions:
1. You need Inkscape and ImageMagick. They are required dependencies for
building gnome-colors from source.
2. Browse to the /themes folder and make a copy of any of the existing files.
3. Rename the copied file to "custom" or anything you like (no spaces!).
4. Open said file in a text editor, and change the name/values to your liking.
5. Run "make install-custom" as administrator or "make user-install-custom" to
install per-user, where "custom" is the name of the icon set and theme file.
6. That's it! You now have a complete, custom gnome-colors variation installed
into your system.
NOTE: The make process will take anywhere between a few minutes to a very long
time depending on your system specs. If you own a dual-core PC, you can
run `make install -j3` for the best performance. Tri-core processors would
use "-j4" and so on...
* When releasing a custom version built from the sources package, the resulting
package must be licensed under the GPL as well. In this case, the theme file
with the color palette is the source. It is recommended not to name any of the
resulting themes the same as any existing gnome-colors variant or include a
folder named "gnome-colors-common", as it will break or change existing
installations of GNOME-Colors.
# gnome-colors-revival
An attempt to try and consolidate all gnome-colors icons and themes into one package. The state of the original icon pack is in extreme unkempt. Last updated by the original authors in 2009.
The original [GNOME Colors icon theme]( was abandoned a long time ago and there appears to be no upstream activity, but a lot of people still use it as their theme regardless of it's age, since it is a very well made icon theme.
Since I'm one of these people, I'm going to try to take upon myself to make a central repository of these icons, so that there can be one place for the whole icon theme, and icons to supplement the originals.
## Credits
- Skype icons were created by [MastroPino](
- Dropbox tray icons were created by [mechanical](
- Filezilla icons were created by [DarKobra](
- The original icon theme was created by [perfectska04]( and [trollixx]( The authors have since disappeared from the face of the earth.
- Original stuff is licensed under GPLv2, and so is this repo.
ChangeLog, AUTHORS, etc. remains unmodified from original pack.
