Nice theme. I personally did not hear of this one before (but I am
rarely first on news).
It makes me think of another monochrome theme which was talked about
quite a bit recently:
There is also another version of these icons for light background made
by another contributor. Actually we are discussing about including
this new set of icons in the next official release (GIMP 2.10) and the
3 icon designers have already agreed to license these icons as GPL for
inclusion in our code repository.

but there seems that people are having a problem with my theme. depending
on what version of gimp and OS the users run my themes different things
happen. sometimes the icons do not change, sometimes it crashes GIMP,
sometime the Dark theme dose not work and the Light one does, sometimes
nether do. I my self have gone from Ubuntu 12.10 to 13.04, changing nothing
about the theme it started crashing GIMP.  but then updating to GIMP 2.8

Is it the last stable version (2.8.8)?

fixed it. But then some users have reported it crashing in Ubuntu. It does
not work for anyone that uses windows or mac.

I know that this is not you guys are working on or what this list is for,
or even the most important thing to tackle right now. But would it be
possible for someone to look at my theme and see why it is acting so
strangely? even some incite on how GIMP themes work that might help me fix
the problems. any help would be appreciated. People really like these
themes and would love to work in them. I hope you like them as well.

Does it crash on startup, or it first loads fine then crashes later on?
Are you sure the themes are the cause of the crash? If you remove the
themes, it won't crash anymore?
In other words: do you have reproduction steps?

If you start from a terminal, when it crashes, do you see some error
log output? Because just "it crashes" is not a very detailed report.
Some error output might help us.

Apart from this, nice work on theming GIMP. Keep up the good work. :-)
