I'll just complicate matters by mentioning that there is demand for
larger icons to suit high resolution displays:

For HiDPI, I hear that GTK+3 will help (not sure of the details).
For the icons, should we just provide bigger icons (as in the forum thread you are pointing)? Is there no support of vectorial icons in GTK+ (2? 3?)? This would simplify a lot of things if icons could just be provided as vector images.

Subject: [Gimp-gui] About symbolic dark/light themes

Hi all,

Some time ago, Alex Prokoudine played with symbolic icons from the GNOME
(https://plus.google.com/+AlexandreProkoudine/posts/LP1pWr7YEgA). This
kickstarted a discussion about new (potentially default, though existing
ones should also stay) themes for GIMP, one with light background, one
with dark background.

Then a contributor started working
from this base to create new themes from these monochrome icons.
See http://www.jesusda.com/files/symbolic-gimp.7z (dark icons)
And http://www.jesusda.com/files/symbolic-gimp_light.7z (light icons)

We would be happy to finalize such themes and include them in GIMP when
they are considered finished. I've encountered some issue having them
work on the dev version of GIMP which uses now icon themes instead of
including the icons from the gtkrc file (basically it seems any theme of
GIMP using this method to change icons will be broken by GIMP 2.10).
Unfortunately I cannot make the time to try and understand what is the
problem since it's not my highest priority in GIMP.
If anyone is interested in the projects, know well theming and icon
themes and can make such a theme working with GIMP (dev version), we
welcome contributions. This could (should IMO!) still make it to GIMP
2.10 if some people are into this.

Scl also created a wiki page when we first started discussing
integrating it into GIMP: http://wiki.gimp.org/index.php/Specs:UI_Theme
(on the main wiki, not the GUI wiki, it would be good if both wikis were

Just throwing this here, hoping some people are interested to
