Dag,

  Sorry I haven't explained in more detail what to do with the .7z files.

  Yes, you need to put the Color-48 folder (containing all the subfolders) into 
your personal GIMP profile Themes folder (C:\Users\Dag\.gimp-2.8\Themes).

  BUT - you're using a GIMP 2.9.? version? If you have the option in your 
Edit>>Preferences>>Icon Theme, then the theme you have downloaded is not going 
to work.

  With 2.9.3.???, Icon Themes now control which icons you get BUT the theme 
controls which size icons, and as far as I know, no-one has made a suitable 
pair that specify and supply larger size icons. Quite frankly, it's a mess at 
the moment.

Thank you very much, Kevin!

It might be a good idea, for users like me, to explain how to go about
installing the theme. As I did not realize that these were zipped files, I
started off by just putting the downloaded color theme and symbolic theme files
in what I thought would be the right folder, but, understandably nothing
happened. I then did a search on the file suffix in order to find out that they
were 7zip-files. I have now downloaded and instlled 7zip, and unzipped the files
and I now have a folder named "Color-48" with several subfolders and files in
it, but I am uncertain what to do? Should I place the WHOLE folder as it is in
the Themes folder? Or just some of the files? And on my Windows 10 PC, I found
one Gimp Themes folder in "C-> User-> Dag -> .gim-2.9-> themes" would that be
the correct folder?

Regards,

Dag
