Question Community input on Icon Sets and gtk themes wanted


I am wondering two things:
  1. What are your favorite Icons themes? Which do you use with Bodhi?
  2. What are your prefered Gtk themes? And which Moksha Theme do you prefer to use it with.

I am wondering this because I would like to update our appcenter and or add more icons and gtk themes to our repo. I have never been satisfied with some of the icon set choices on our appcenter. A few of the icons sets listed there are broken in one way or another.

Over the years I have played with probably hundreds of icon sets and almost as many gtk themes. So I am wondering what are your favorites? To be added to the repo and or the Appcenter the icons set or gtk theme must be fairly complete and fully functional and work well in Bodhi. If it fits in well with a Moksha theme or another well known e17 theme that is a plus. I am less interested in how well it works with other DEs but if it supports the major ones that also is a plus.

For legal and philosophical reasons I am not going to add anything that is an obvious copyright violation and prefer FOSS licenses.

Thanks for any input.

I'm a big fan of elementary OS, so I would like to see their icon and gtk themes. I would probably use it with with the Dark Moksha theme or maybe radiance.

i tend to be fairly boring and repetitive when it comes to desktop decoration. i like the mokshagreen icons with the moksaharcgreen theme (i love the clock that comes with it). i switched to crux (v2) for gtk just because some of the libreoffice icons were a bit hard to read with the default.

I have been using Delft ("Continuation of Faenza icon theme with up to date app icons") for a long time, not only because it looks good but because it is one of the most complete icon themes I know of.
It comes in various different color/light/dark variants.
Somehow I have the feeling it would fit right in with a Moksha desktop.

I have as many themes available on my desktop as i can gather. However, If I were to pick favorites, I would recommend Moksha sunshine,
A-crema, and blingbling. These themes sport bright colors and unique icon sets, and being my mother's son, bright colors usually work well for me.

I am not aware the themes you mentioned above come with icon set. You probably use the preinstalled ones

You are right Stefan. I don't choose any icon sets. Just using what is there.

No problem. I intend to add icon set for each theme maintained by me. There is a nice tool called oomox which can generate GTK themes as well as Icon set. Moreover I added a new feature in Moksha which will set also Icon theme when Moksha theme is select. I mean all themes (ELM, GTK and ICON one) will be set automatically and match Moksha theme.
I will announce the feature after some testings

Stefan, I actually installed oomox on my bodhi 5.0 64bit. Had to do a lot to deal with unmet dependencies, but did finally get it installed. I then opened and used, but am having trouble seeing my changes show up, either as a newly saved theme or as a changed
current theme. does working in moksha keep changes from showing up?

I have no troubles in seeing my result. Oomox output is saved in ~/.themes and ~/.icons and you should be able to see it immediately in application theme settings.
In packages themes are supposed to install to /usr/share/themes and /usr/share/icons.
