Flat GIMP icon Theme v 1.0.0 by android272 Flat GIMP icon Theme v 1.0.0 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 wanted to provide people with options that make them comfortable so they can stop looking at the theme and UI.  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.

Just extract the .zip and place it under home/.gimp-2.8/themes (supposing that you use GIMP 2.8)

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, Mirek2's flat icon concept from LibreOffice and the GIMP dev team. all of you really helped make this theme.

NOTES:  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.

Awesome theme, looks very professional!

However once I installed the themes on Windows 7, I noticed that the dark and darker themes do not show up, and all the themes have white parts, which (judging by the original screenshot) shouldn't be there. I do use a custom OS theme, but setting it to the default 'aero' theme doesn't make a difference either, so that is not the problem. I use GIMP 2.8.10.

Dark(er): imgur.com/AIBKukU,99ey8h0#1

I have tried installing the theme in Linux (Ubuntu) and it looks perfect! The only bad thing I noticed is that with the default Ubuntu Ambiance theme, the text of the disabled elements of the dialog that shows up when you right click on the image is hard to read (black text on almost black background).

I mainly do my art in Windoze (because a needed program hasn't made its way to Linux yet), so I would love to see a fix for this issue.

Thank you for your input. Windows seems to be a bit of a problem with my theme. every time I seem to fix it some one else has a problem with it.

Unfortunately I am completely unable to work on this for at least another tree weeks as I am in my final weeks of college and have SOOO many papers and programs to write.

That being said I am not going to auto remove this note in my feedback box, that way I will remember that you are having a problem with my theme.

some questions for you if you could answer so that when I do come back to this I can immediately get working on the problem. 

you say that the dark and darker themes do not show up, yet your screen shots darker darker. what do you mean that they do not show up? some users experience the default icons not switching out for my icons, as well the default application colors show and not my application colors. Is this what you are experiencing?

Secondly this custom OS them "aero", what does not make a difference when you switch to this theme?

Now with this Linux problem.  I have been meaning to fix this, so when ever I get around to it I will.

Thanks for the bug report.

P.S. what program do you require that has not made its way to Linux? Just wondering, have you checked out alternativeto.net ?  This site has user complied a huge list of programs which is sort of like other programs. Some times they list apps that are nearly the same as the app you need and other times they list apps that only perform one or two aspects of each other.

Hello, thanks for the quick response!

That was a bit of a typo, I meant to write "do not show up correctly", but I seem to have completely forgotten the last word. They do show up, however they have white areas (mostly where the tabs are and on the menu bar), which they do not have in Linux. (Sorry for the confusion, I should have read what I wrote before posting)

Windows does not allow much theme customization by default, and I use a custom theme to make it look more Ubuntu-ish. I did notice a few UI problems in some other programs, which is why I decided to add that in the comment.

About the last question, unfortunately alternativeto.net won't help much. The thing is that the program I was referring to is a game engine (in which I've already done a lot of work on my project), and switching to a different engine would mean starting over (I could transfer the resources such as models, textures, sounds, etc., but it would still be a lot of work). For me, doing art in Linux is possible, however I like to constantly check that everything looks right in-game. Thanks anyways!

P.S.: Best of luck on the college!

Oh ok cool I use google translate a bunch when talking to people accost the pond. Yes you may use my icons and even code. the icons are licensed under the creative commons, you may use my theme change it as you like and redistribute it and your changes as long as you give others the same rights and you attribute me.  The code is licensed under the GPL which is the same you may use it change it and redistribute it as you like as long as you give others the same rights.  if you private message me your email I can send you my working SVG files, this way you can edit the originals. I have wrote some scripts as well to automatically convert the SVG files into PNG as Windows and maybe Mac do not like SVG files in GIMP.
