See, that's exactly the feeling I had about this. Having your theme's icons everywhere gives the environment consistency. On the other hand I really want to shrink down that mintupdate toolbar and get rid of that current icon choice (which is actually the mail reply icon and looks bad in some themes for obvious reasons), yet that bugged GNOME icon annoys me enough to probably go ahead and force the same icons on everyone after all despite your justified indignation. Toolbar only though, not the menus.trytip wrote: ↑Fri Aug 16, 2019 9:31 amumm, YEAH !!! i spent months polishing and editing and creating my own icons only to find out they weren't all being used. the desktop wants one set, the application wants another, the theme doesn't know which way to go and then developers decide hey i'm just going to take away the users ability to have their own icons in the file manager toolbar and make some ugly symbolic universal pictures that everyone will have and no one will be able to change it. that last part was directed at the XFCE developers and the ugly mess they made of thunar, not sure how it is in 4.14 but 4.13 turned me off xfce simply for the fact i can't use my own icons in the file manager
We'll see. I'll have to sleep on it.
I have my own cleaned up desktop + icon themes but it's personal use only, I haven't released it. The PPA here is strictly Mint-tools, anyway, so if I ever wanted to release them they would have to go on another PPA.
