Flat GIMP icon Theme V 2.1 by android272 Flat GIMP icon Theme V 2.1 by android272
The Flat GIMP icon Theme was created to modernize GIMP and keep people focused on their art.  I have heard it all over the web that GIMP is ugly and I wanted to change that. 

I personally like Darker themes but others Like lite themes, many people asked for a smaller theme just like GIMP comes with so I made those to. I think that GIMP is an amazing program that many people don't even give a change because it does not look a pretty as Photoshop.

special thanks to :iconknozos: maker of the DPixel theme for help with theme,  :iconzzdas: maker of the minimo for small theme text, Eckhard M. Jäger maker of the ProGimp theme for colored icons, :icondoctormo: maker of PsIcons themfor getting rid of tool box lable and help with gtkrc, :iconmigf1: for some help with making v2 of my theme, Mirek2's flat icon concept from LibreOffice and the GIMP dev team. all of you really helped make this theme.

Check out my interview with the Jupiter Broadcasting crew over on YouTube and here me talk about this theme.  Big thanks to them for letting me on the show.  If you do not already know about Jupiter Broadcasting and are a big nerd you should go check them out here or on their YouTube Channel here.

# Instillation
# =========================================================

Just extract the .zip and place it under the  GIMP themes folder:

* Linux: Copy the Theme you want and the Decor folder into ~gimp-2.8/themes

* Mac: Copy the Theme you want and the Decor folder into Aplications > Right Click Gimp and select Show Package Contents > Contents > Resources > Share > gimp > 2.0 > themes

* Windows: Copy the Theme you want and the Decor folder into C:\Documents and Settings\{YourUsername}\.gimp-2.4\themes or C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\themes\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\themes\

NOTES:  11-16-2014: I have completely rewrote these 8 themes. You now will get along with the 8 icon themes a folder called "Decor". This folder needs to be placed in your Themes directory in-order for V2 and on to work.  Icons and gtk.rc files have been moved there to conserve data for you. V1 was very memory inefficient. All the icons are now located in a icons folder in the "Decor" folder and all themes link to it instead of having their own set of icons.

I am moving to major.minor.patch versioning of Flate GIMP icon Theme. Current version is now 1.0.0. So now you can check back and see if I have made an update. To find out what version you have the zip file will have the version, you can also find this in the read me that comes with the Theme.

I added icons for GIMP 2.10 but commented them out in the imagerc. so if you are using GIMP 2.10 you can uncomment out the unified transform tool, warp tool, align horizontal fill(hfill in doc) and vertical fill(vfill in doc).

I have also been updating some icons here and there. The crop tool, free select tool and others have all been updated. So check back often I may release a silent update.

Yep, respect - thumb up - .

For people who loving some colors in the theme (like red, blue, purple, green..), check-out these themes, based on the work of Andrew Pullins:

That is a lot of great work you have put in - kudos!

I would like to modify the colours so the theme matches my IcyBlack gtk/openbox theme collection.

Before I start, are you planning any other colours soon?

:iconandroid272:
android272 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have been planing more colors infarct I currently am working on 56 themes or Darker, Dark, Light, Lighter in 14 different accent colors. So you can choose Blue, Green, Pink, Purple, Red, Yellow and Gray all in a light and dark variant(eg. Dark Blue, Light Blue).  I just open the image you linked into gimp with my Dark_Blue and Light_Blue and it looks like my theme may be pretty close to yours.  But if it is not in version 3.0 of my theme I will also be making a template theme so that you can just start with a clean theme and make your own.  This will even come with SVG source of my icons so if you want to edit them you can instead of changing the colors with in GIMP.

Unfortunately this may take me a while before I get them out as all of my time is being eaten by training at work and I am still working on fixing some issues some are having with 2.1.  But if you want you may make your own fork of my theme. Everything, icons and gtkrc file are Open Source with a GPL and CC licenses.

Now that will be a fantastic contribution! I look forward to it :)

hi.
I cannot get it to work with windows portable gimp v2.8.14 (both versions bundled by portableapps launcher or the liberkey launcher).
the edit > preferences > theme screen does display the location for the "default" and "small" themes delivered in standard with gimp.
I put your files there, and restart gimp: the folders display, but the theme is not changed when the new theme is selected.
I tried to put folder "Flat GIMP icon Theme V2" alongside default and small folders OR folders Decor/Experimental/GIMP_Orange alongside default/small -> no difference: when I select the new theme/folder after restarting gimp, no change in theme is applied.
thanks for any help...

Hello Andrew.  I've been trying to use your themes but I have also run into the "endless loading" bug.  When I load a theme, and then restart Gimp (version 2.8, mind you), it won't load.  Or, it takes a while to load.  I'm wondering why, exactly, it's doing this.

What happens when the theme loads?  Does Gimp have to change some of the colors of the icons?  Or, does it have to set many widgets?

Edit: Well, after meticulously walking through Gimp with gdb, it looks like when Gimp is loading your theme, it's stuck in a g_file_test() loop.  What this means... I do not know.  It could be that, when determining whether a file is opened, or whether it can be read, the function can't finish reading it.  Or it could mean anything; maybe one of the theme files is too long.  Who knows. ;)

Just a little thing to solve :)
On startup gimp won't apply theme. Telling me it can't find the necessary files. -_-

/home/felix/.gimp-2.8/themes/Dark_gimp_orange_small/gtkrc:46: Unable to find include file: "imagerc"
/home/felix/.gimp-2.8/themes/Dark_gimp_orange_small/gtkrc:47: Unable to find include file: "../Decor/size/small_size.rc"
/home/felix/.gimp-2.8/themes/Dark_gimp_orange_small/gtkrc:48: Unable to find include file: "../Decor/chrome_color/chrome_color.rc"

But if gimp is running and i change the theme it works all fine. O.o any suggestions?

:iconandroid272:
android272 Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Are you sure you put the "decor" folder in your themes folder along with the theme you want?

That might be the reason GIMP can't find small_size.rc and chrome_color.rc but not the imagerc...

I don't understand how GIMP handles themes sometimes. You would think if there was a problem with the theme it would revert back to the default theme when you select it and when you load GIMP after. But instead it makes you think it works but does not.

[solved]

No all was placed okay. Theme was working when changing to it in the configs.

Its now solved. Have had nothing to do with your theme :D.
It was the bizzare behavior of gimp when some part (glyph lib) don't work well with the current font.
I was using Dina which is a pixelfont. Now switched to ttf scaled font.
Its part of the themeengine which causing crashes and wrong settings pretty randomly.

Now everything works as it should.

Really?... I did not know that the font you use would crash GIMP. Well I hope you like this theme. If you encounter any other problems or have a suggestion please come back.

Okay seems to have solved it. (dirty)

Just wrote hardlinks to the files:

include "/home/felix/.gimp-2.8/themes/Dark_gimp_orange_small/imagerc"
include "/home/felix/.gimp-2.8/themes/Decor/size/small_size.rc"
include "/home/felix/.gimp-2.8/themes/Decor/chrome_color/chrome_color.rc"

PS: I'm on 2.8.14.

Hey Andrew, I found your work through a recent episode of LAS and just wanted to take a moment to say that the theme looks amazing and appreciate the hard work that you're putting in to try and make GIMP look first class. That said, I am unfortunately getting seg faults when trying to use it on Ubuntu 14.10 with GIMP 2.8.10. I can pick a theme from the preferences and it will apply and everything continues to work fine until I quit the application. Then, once I try to re-open, I get a seg fault and error messages pertaining to missing stock-image-16.png files from the ../Decor/icons/GIMP_Orange/dialogs and ../Decor/icons/Dark/dialogs directories. A file named stock-images-16.png (with an "s") already exists in this location so I made a copy, removed the "s" to make it stock-image-16.png and tried restarting GIMP but no dice. The error messages no longer kick up, but instead GIMP just never launches at all. It doesn't throw any errors to the terminal so I can't even report an error... In order to get it running again I have to remove the theme files and restart the GIMP. Any suggestions, recommendations, magic dances I can do to hopefully make things work?

I'm having the same issue (ubuntu 14.04 32-bit with Gimp 2.8.10), even with your update. I tried launching it in the terminal but unfortunately it just sits there and hangs without loading, infinitely, so there is no error report to be given. I was attempting to use Dark Orange Small theme, as a result of this crash. I haven't tested the other ones.

Basically, it works when you first select the theme, but you'll never be able to keep the theme on the next startup so you have to remove it for Gimp to run again.

Regardless, I really like the concept and would love to use it once we figure out the problem. If there is any other diagnostic tools I can use, feel free to let me know so I can give you a proper error report.

Apologies for the super long delay in responding, I've just finally gotten enough time to test the experimental folder. Unfortunately it does not appear to fully fix the issue. I still get a seg fault immediately after applying the theme and restarting GIMP, however after a second restart it launches with the theme applied... all except for the icons. Very strange.

I will also try the Clearlooks Flat Icons theme you referred to keizgon and see if that works.

Wow sucks... Clearlooks Flat Icons Gimp 2.8 Themes v.1.0.1 by migf1  can you download this theme and tell me if you have the same results? He uses my icons so your basically getting the same package.

I will keep working on this for you though.

Hello, i just saw you and that beautiful icon theme on jupiter boradcasting. I am using the Lighter GIMP_Orange Theme on KDE 4.14.2 and it looks really nice. Unfortunately all the info-boxes when hovering over the icons are not visible because it is white text on bright background. Is this a common bug or specific just on my KDE system (maybe an issue with QT/GTK compatibility?)

Thanks for answering. The different options appear on the pref/themes menu, but nothing seems to happen when I choose another theme, even when I switch to "Small" or "Default". Do I need Administrator rights (sudo) to this? but this is MS Windows!
