In the Sardi Mono Numix Colora folder you will find a script to change all colored icons to any colour you want.

Last time we used inkscape to test what colour combinations we like and copy/paste the codes into the script and run it.

THIS TIME we will sample the colours from a wallpaper we like and make the icons accordingly.

We end up making a new icon theme.
