Gnome-ish icon theme for Calibre 0.4: it’s back!

calibre-theme-renatoram-preview-web

A couple of years ago I cobbled up an icon theme pack for Calibre, the awesome ebook manager and converter, to give it a look that’s both more appealing to my personal taste, and a bit more uniform with the general style of Linux applications. It’s mostly a cherry-picking of icons from various Gnome icon themes, plus some modified slightly by me: I don’t want to take any credit where it’s not due (all license details are in the README.txt in the package).

That package pretty much fell in disrepair, and even the independently made 0.3 version has pretty much disappeared from the web.

But no more! I decided to give it a whirl again and so, without further ado, the 0.4 version of the package! It should be compatible with Calibre 0.9.x and subsequent versions (probably 0.8 too, and at least up to 1.0.x), and it contains instructions for very simple installation (it’s a matter of copying one folder).

It’s now much more complete than before, though far from being a 100% replacement. Some icons are pretty hard to replace… and many icons are for functions I have never encountered in Calibre: it’s a big tool!

Enjoy your spiffied-up Calibre, and please let me know if there are any problems with the hosting of the file (or if you want to offer a hosting place that allows hotlinking).
