Vivacious Colors is a Vivid and Modern GTK icon theme. Featuring an completely NEW set of application icons(Re-designed by RAVEfinity based on Plasma-Next, Flattr and Emerald.). And amazing folders and indicators. All the icons in vivacious are modern and clean but make use of gradients and shading for more detail and sophistication. Vivacious uses a fusion of components from many great open source icon projects. But we add to and develop many new aspects of our own on top of this Including taking on new App icon development & re-design and other aspects as needed. Vivacious features 4 hand crafted folder colors by default. and 10 more installable via the folder-colors package.

Vivacious Colors is based on our tried and true Vibrancy Colors icon theme framework (Folders, Indicators, Actions etc). However we have completely replaced the rounded App icons with a newly re-designed (With some parts built from scratch) Set of vivid and beautiful application icons that come in multiple shapes and are fully SVG.

Vivacious uses Plasma Next icons as a base for our app icons. However we have overhauled the look of nearly everything (to match our design vision) We have also created lots of new icons and redesigned many aspects. The theme has also been built out so nearly all common apps and even uncommon ones "theme" with our theme! A huge thanks to the Emerald Icon theme and Vince Luice for his hard work making Plasma Next Icons more GTK friendly. Vivacious is based on Emerald and Plasma but we look different as we have gone in a different direction.

(Q) Uhh Why the heck is it called "Vivacious" ?
Vivacious Means: attractively lively and animated. We came to this name when looking through a thesaurus for variations of the word Vibrant. And we thought it sounded quite funny.

Fully tested/built to work on most major GTK desktops including: 
Unity, Cinnamon, Gnome Shell, Gnome Classic, Mate, Xfce, LXDE, Openbox and more.

Theme Requires about 58 MB When installed.
And Up to 90 MB if you decide to install the folder colors addon.

4 Colors of Folders are Selectable by default:
Stock Manila Folders, Blue, Purple, Mint Teal.

10 More Folder Colors Are Available Via "Vivacious-Folder-Colors-Addon" Package:
Aqua ,Graphite ,Blue Vivid (Dark), Brown, Green, Purple Vivid (Dark),Red, Pink, Orange, Yellow.

Fully Supports Folder Color Extension (On Nemo, Nautilus, Caja, Files)
An optional extension that allows you to right click on any folder and change it to any of the 14 colors on the fly. Perfect for organization or personalization. This works on top of the already selectable 14 colors from the theme panel.

Special Thanks to Vince Liuice for his hard work bringing plasma icons to GTK and adding lots of app links.

App Icons in this theme are based on Plasma-Next, Flattr and Emerald  Icons However we have re-designed a large majority of them (Alot look completely different.) And created many from scratch. Firefox, Chrome etc.

RAVEfinity is talking over the responsibility for development of app icon design in this theme. Thus it has diverged from other themes it is based on. But we are happy to push anything back upstream. Just grab it! (And give credit please. As we do.) 

We want to create really awesome App Icons for this theme. And have a really awesome app icons set that can be used anywhere. In the style you see above. Our goal is to have GOOD icons for nearly all supported apps. (Not the same icon rehashed a billion times) We welcome any contributions (Just Email us) And if we use it. we will add  you to the credits. Please don't use any copyrighted graphics in your submissions. Alternately or alos.You let us know about app icons you are missing or ones you think could look better. Thanks!

    2. Hello friends from the RAVEfinity project I REALLY love the Vivracious icon theme, could you make a fedora Copr repository to enable Fedora users to install and keep up to date the package? also I recommend you to start working to cover the new GNOME apps such as GNOME translate GNOME ToDo and other new and cool apps

      Greetings from Mexico and have a good day :)

      Delete
    3. Thanks for your kind words and support. I will do my best to get those icons in the next build. As for a Copr repo I will do my best.

      We actually have had help/outsource all distro specific packaging since I don't have the time/patience to do it. (It was taking me hours when I was doing it myself) Se we are looking for someone to help with a fedora RPM repo (via Corpr) And a Debian repo. I will put this on our page and I hope we can get it going. I will try my best to do it but I spend a lot of time just developing so it's nice if I can just put out a tar and let they awesome packager pros do their stuff.

      This or we hope to explore GitHub and autobuilds when time permits (Things are a little hectic we are doing our best to keep things going)

      Thanks again Amigo!

      Thanks for the comment. Let me know I will try to get it sorted.

    3. I tried it. It works fine. Thanks.

      It's just that version 15.10 was not listed above. I prefered to ask before installing it.

  6. Could you please make the indicator icons follow the ubuntu-mono-dark theme (white flat icons)? If I choose vivacious, it does not match three other indicators in the top bar :/ , if I choose ubuntu-mono-dark only VLC's icon does not match.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the comment. We have been considering doing this but it is missing icons for several apps still for some reason. Plus Ubuntu mono uses a slightly different color indicator (White with a shade of orange) On top of all this it is complicated to merge over. However we are still looking at doing it it's just kind of involved. But I get what your saying thanks.

  7. Hi, thank you for your hard work! But after I installed this package on Mint 17.3 with XFCE, I opened the 'Appearance' window and click on the 'Icons' tab, then the window just disappeared. If I removed the package then everything went back to work. How can I debug the problem?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The issue has to do with the GTK Icon Cache we believe. The weird thing is we can not get any of our systems to do it. But I will try with Mint 17.3 Xfce. If you know what your doing browse to /usr/share/icons/Vivacious-Colors and removed the Icon Cache file. or install from tar. We don't know whats causing the issue yet as it is only happening on XFCE. But our theme is alot more complicated then some others because we have different colors and we do it a certain/efficient way.

      I really want to solve this issue but its hard. We might end up disable icon caching in the meantime. (Faneza used to do this)

    1. Thanks for the heads up. We will try to address this. It may be we need to add a symbolic. Every desktop seems to use different names so it may be a matter of that as well.

  9. For some reason the file icons are all using the wrong image. I think it is scalable.

    3. Awesome, here's some other popular apps that are missing icons from my system: Enpass (password manager - awesome app), Hardinfo (system profiler and benchmark), Megasync, Superbeam, and Gtkhash. In both Vivacious and Vibrancy (my favorite). Keep up the great work, thanks again.

    6. Thank you for the comment and kind words. I have added those to our list. For some reason some icons are not theming in fedora like they are in other systems so we are looking into getting those to work. I will make sure those app icons are there as well. Thanks.

  11. Got an error on Ubuntu 16.04 with Mate environment during reinstall:
    gtk-update-icon-cache-3.0: The generated cache was invalid.
    WARNING: icon cache generation failed for /usr/share/icons/Vibrancy-Colors

    my problem is the disabled bluetooth icon seems to be the one from the "hicolor" icon set.
    can you help me fix this problem?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry about the issue. This happens on some setups. There is a lot of icons and the cachegen fails/times out sometimes. The theme will run without the cache. We would like to generate and fix this but we need to audit hundreds of icons to see what the hold up is.

      We are looking into a fix for the hicolor icons. Heres a fix someone submitted You can try:
      (!) Be careful no warranty. not 100% tested. If it breaks you need to remove and reinstall icons.

      $ head --lines=7 /usr/share/icons/Vibrancy-Colors/index.theme

      $ sudo sed -i "s|Inherits=gnome,hicolor|Inherits=|g" /usr/share/icons/Vibrancy-Colors/index.theme

      $ head --lines=7 /usr/share/icons/Vibrancy-Colors/index.theme

  15. Zim, FocusWriter and Pluma all have the same icons (with a slightly different color detail). But they're unrecognizable most of the time.
