Following the colouring of the conky Aureola Acros I wanted to know if I could match those colours to the folder icons. Sardi Mono Numix Colora has a script to change the colours. Each of the parts can be changed via these colour codes. Follow the steps in the video and see how easy it is to make your own icon theme with these scripts.

In the script you will see that there are many tips, do’s and don’ts. Every step of the way you will find a comment to tell you what the script will do.

Remember

Things to do after you have been creative and your icons are a fact.

  • Change the name of your new icon theme also in index.theme (for xfce mainly)
  • Delete the old icon-theme.cache – it will not be correct anymore
  • Backup

If you like, you can recreate an icon-theme.cache for your icon theme but it is not necessary.
