Re: [Gimp-developer] HELP with SYMBOLIC icon theme for Gimp.

Hi all,

I'm also for an additional dark theme. Both (dark and lighter theme)
can ease the artists work and be used to check the images appearance

I've already sat for hours on searching for a suitable dark theme,
integrating the Gnome art-libre icon set and after asking Jimmac at IRC
without ulterior motives one day before his G+ posting the things are
now slipped away from my hands. If it still matters - Andrea Cimitans Darklooks theme looks suitable. In Debian it's in the package

I also think there's more to a professional, user-supporting theme
than assembling nice pieces out of a spontaneous idea. Ad hoc topics
like suitability for speedy work, using a theme engine that works on
all important platforms (Linux, Windows, OS X) and suitability for
High-DPI (Retina) displays come to my mind. Therefore I asked Peter for
some input on the topic. Perhaps we know more next week.

Another thing we should consider is the license. The used symbolic
icon set is licensed under the Creative Commons Share Alike License 3
(CCBYSA3). It is probably [incompatible with the GPL] used in GIMP
and could also be incompatible with Linux distributor approvals.
IMHO either the icon set and theme are relicenced under the GPL or we
need something else if we want to integrate them into GIMP.
The Darklooks theme uses the GPLv2.

If this is clarified: As the 2.8 branch is for bugfixes I'm for
integration into the master branch so the theme will be in the 2.10
release and who likes can use it in 2.8 anyway (both use GTK+ 2).

JEsuSdA 8) thanks anyway for your work. You did a great job and now
that we're further there's surely less work to be done. Keep it up! :-)

Kind regards,
