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.


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!


- Update: OpaqueTaskbar v2.6
- New: Ability to Reset the Option “Apply Universal Theme Patcher” to apply it even if the Patcher recognizes it as already applied

- Fix: Files that accidentally got patched automatically get restored now (e.g. if not compatibel with Win8.1)

- 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.

How I uninstall for complete this to do a clean install again?
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:………

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

Is there a way to restore back to aero? unfortunately I don't really like the style and I want to change back but i can't figure out how.

via Control Panel > Appearance > Select any Theme installed on your system...

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:

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... ?! :(

you mean the edges of the windows right?
BlakByte Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2014
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'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!
