WinTango Patcher by heebijeebi WinTango Patcher by heebijeebi
NOTE: This is for Windows 7/8.1/10 BETA (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 WinTango 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.

Changelog:

15.04.25:
- Fix: Bug with Lightning in Thunderbird Theme
- Update: Further improvements for the Elementary & Humanity icon theme
- New: Symbolic tray icons
- Update: Shiki-Dust as the new color theme for Gnome
- Update: Control Panel Applet icons
- New: Shiki-Colors Dust Visual Style
- Update: Several fixes for the Shiki-Colors Visual Style
- Update: AIMP Elementary/Humanity Shiki-Theme

Thanks for maintaining this patcher.  Clap   I seem to have a constant reloading problem with Opera.  According to the Opera.exe.log the commands were completed, yet the issue remains.  I'm just going remove the script for Opera but I wanted to pass this along, I think the script may be faulty.

Edit - I'm going to uninstall and reinstall to try and clear the issue.

have you tried to uncheck "System: Volume Mixer (sndvol.exe)"?

make sure that you uninstall the patcher first to ensure that all files are back to the originals.

Hi Heebijeebi,
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detected Trojan.Agent.AIS in some WinTango Patcher's own files.
Please look:

Registry Keys: 1
Trojan.Agent.AIS, HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL\WinTango Patcher

Files: 2
Trojan.Agent.AIS, C:\Program Files (x86)\WinTango Patcher\Patcher.exe
Trojan.Agent.AIS, C:\Program Files (x86)\WinTango Patcher\PatcherCPL.exe

I think they are false positives, don't you? Please, let me know.
Reply
:iconheebijeebi:
heebijeebi Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2015
yes its a false positive.

its because the patcher disables some redirections and allows itself to change protected files, which is neccessary to do the trick.

Somehow I missed out on the beta version.. cool with elementary icons too.. you're doing a great job, man.. even Win10 support coming/improving! Have you seen Microsofts Win10 icons they've presented? I've never been a fan of Wndows icons but good god, your patcher will seriously be nessesary when/if i make the switch to Win10!

Does it work with Windows 8.1 ?, cause it doesn`t seems to patch the tray icons, mine stays white.
Reply
:iconheebijeebi:
heebijeebi Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2015
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.

:iconheebijeebi:
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
