Gnome-Colors Patcher by heebijeebi Gnome-Colors Patcher by heebijeebi
NOTE: This is for Windows 7/8 (x86/x64)! It has been successfully tested by myself in a VirtualBox and on my own Computer(s).
If you find any bugs or problems please report them to me.


The Gnome-Colors Patcher is a mostly self-explanatory graphical wizard designed to make simple the process of modifying your system files with resources developed by the Gnome-Colors Project, which is mostly inspired/based on Tango, GNOME, Elementary, Tango-Generator and many other open-source projects. It currently includes implementations of the basic Gnome icon set and the Gnome-Colors icon sets, rounded out with various pieces of artwork created by myself and others. Additionally, it includes a Reloader module to re-modify your files if they are overwritten, allowing system updates to be performed without breaking the theme.


Screenshots:
Gnome
Gnome-Brave
Gnome-Human
Gnome-Noble
Gnome-Wine
Gnome-Wise
Cheser
Tango
Tangerine


Tools:
You might want to use Windows 7 Aero Blur Tweaker by Kishan-Bagaria in order to fix the border transparency for the included Shiki-Colors Visual Style!


Changelog:

14.09.26:
- New: Option to edit default Paths for 3rd Party Applications.
- Fix: Some minor corrections.
- Update: Re-Added support for PhotoViewer.dll.
- Update: Notepad2 (CN) 4.2.25.r906.
- Update: Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird 32+ Theme.


Download: Online Installer (~680 KB) || Offline Installer (~174 MB)

BETA News:

Everybody who is wondering, whats going on behind the scenes at the moment: I'm currently working on the Elementary Theme (and Humanity) to be part of the next version. Therefore the name of the project got changed into "WinTango Patcher", as there are more and more Tango! icon themes included and not just Gnome-Colors as the old name suggests. In the course of which the Installer got a new design, too. As well as a brand new implementation into the control panel for the most common tasks.

Everybody who wants to try this BETA can optain the most current version on the new Project Blog.

Does it work with Windows 8.1 ?, cause it doesn`t seems to patch the tray icons, mine stays white.

it works. but the tray icons can't be patched for Win 8.1. if you do so the functions behind them wouldn't work properly anymore.

Oh and nother thing, heebi, wasn't there once a way to patch only applications? They tend to get updated so a faster way to update would be nice. I fear the reloader will reload items I dont want reloaded :/.. alot of system files I've modded further myself, etc.

heebijeebi Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014
in the past there were two seperate patchers, yes. I merged them to make things easier.

I'll have a look at implementing an option (via commandline switch) to just reload windows or the applications. Please be a bit more patient as I am currently reworking the whole thing ;)

Hey Heebijeebi, any chance you could make a different battery icon (in the tray)? Like more visible, something in style with the default win7 icon but ofcourse not just boring plain white.. that is, if there's even any alternative icons made ofcourse
Reply
:iconblakbyte:
BlakByte Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
Yeah I had a look at those as well. Something like that, but vertical and more tango-ish colors? It's just that the existing one is very small and its hard to tell how much the battery is actually drained.

How I uninstall for complete this to do a clean install again?
Reply
:iconheebijeebi:
heebijeebi Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014
simply go to the control panel and deinstall it through "programs and features". 

if the patcher shouldn't appear you can also press Win + R and copy the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Gnome-Colors Patcher\Patcher.exe /uninstall

Press enter..

So are these available anywhere as just separate icons?
I understand the point of this is to basically replace all the icons on the system but that's not the sole use of the icons.
These are neat icons but unfortunately they are completely useless to me in this form.
I only need 1 type of icon out of the entire collection right now and getting that separately appears to not be possible.

you can get all the icons from their projects homepage:

ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/GNOME/sourc…
ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/GNOME/sourc…
gnome-look.org/content/show.ph…
tango.freedesktop.org/

you can also tell me which icon you need and i can provide you with it..

I don't suppose it's this patcher that's somehow creating this behavior on my laptop;

No matte what I do, inside advanced appaerance settings for my Windows theme, border padding with automatically set itself to 0 instead of 4 and "active window border" to 5 instead of 1, making windows look like so: i.imgur.com/t06E38r.png

In the installation of the icon pack I didn't install the theme and all that, so I really dont know... it just seems like the behavior stops when I've the pack uninstalled... and yes, no matter if I change it it will reset itself eventually... ?! :(

Yessir. I don't see how this patcher actually could do it - and it's not a problem on my desktop either (long time user, great job btw) - but it seems liked it stopped when I didnt have the patch installed. It should be looking like so : i.imgur.com/NzAPwv2.png

I've just tried patching without using the Tango iPack and I can't really see anything that's not patched. I'm trying to think of a good reason I used both but I can't. Good work!

Follow up:

The first time I tried gnome-patcher on Windows 10, I had done an upgrade from 8.1 and I just reloaded gnome-patcher. All good!

But now, I've tried on a fresh Windows 10 install and I get the error blue screen during startup. The system won't start anymore...  : (

heebijeebi Featured By Owner Edited Dec 9, 2014
Okay thats a bummer... but Windows 10 hasn't even been released (until autumn 2015).
That in mind using the Patcher is likely to cause errors and it should never be used on a productive system!

Right now there is no official support for Windows 10! But you can try applying it by playing around with the checkboxes...

I'm not using Windows 10 as my daily driver, but I'd love to keep testing it with Gnome icons. = )
For me, that's how Windows is supposed to look (or this is how Windows IS in my head). 

But I'll just stop fiddling with the icons in W10 for now. 
My 8.1 installation is all good and that's what matters.

By the way, thank you very much for this patcher!!

Best,

Hi, I love this, can't use Windows without it - thank you for all your efforts heebijeebi ! :)

I've found on several Windows 8 x64 and 8.1 x64 computers after installing, you can't open these Control Panel apps:
 - Sound
 - Phone and Modem
 - Region
 - Mouse and Keyboard
 - Date and Time

Everything else works flawlessly for me, however I thought I would just report the problem. Let me know if I can do any testing.

Windows 8 is a pain in the *** when it comes to patching. Does anybody know a project that successfully patches (not overlay) windows 8?

I cant open the mouse or clock settings via the control panel since I installed this patch on a fully updated version of Windows 8.1.

:iconheebijeebi:
heebijeebi Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014
do you mean via control panel or system tray? the bug with the tray menu is known to me and since it still works via control panel it was fine by me. but you can disable the option to patch the clock an avoid this behavior that way.

did you apply it and then remove it yourself?

anyways you can reset your registry for the patcher to let you patch it again by applying this: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/82…

i'd like to patch "portable" firefox... in filesApps.ini i changed the string to:
Win=All
Entrys=1
File_1=FirefoxPortable.exe
Path_1=C:\Portable\FirefoxPortable

but it didn't work... any tips?

thanks!

:iconheebijeebi:

you would also need a script file named "FirefoxPortable.exe" in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Gnome-Colors Patcher\Resources\scripts" otherwise you ould just rename the "FirefoxPortable.exe" to "firefox.exe" and the patcher should work on it..
