Brought on by the efforts of David Tabachnikov, GnomeICU now has icon theme support. With icon theme sets, it is very easy to change the appearance of GnomeICU to better fit your tastes, your desktop, or whatever else you're trying to match :) Four icon themes come with GnomeICU by default (if you're using GnomeICU 0.95 or newer): Default, reDubbed, Gradients, and Eyeballs. The GnomeICU Author is not at all graphically gifted, so ICU is completely dependent on outside parties for producing icon sets. However, the author (Jeremy Wise) does have the right to edit or reject any submitted icon sets. You've been warned.
To install an icon set, create the directory
$HOME/.icq/icons, if it doesn't already exist. Download the associated tar.gz file, move it into
$HOME/.icq/icons, and unzip it using
tar zxf themename.tar.gz. Then, in GnomeICU, pull down the ICQ menu and choose Preferences. Then, find your new theme in the theme list on the Miscellaneous tab. Click the Apply button to see if you like the theme, and then OK to commit your changes. Voila! You have a new icon set. We will work on making this a little easier, but for now you'll have to bear with the process.
