----- Instalación y notas en español: [link] ----- Why I did this?
Since LibreOffice icons are really ugly and does NOT match with ANY MODERN desktop environment, I thought that making a mod using minimal style (based on Faenza monochrome icons only) could be usefull for custom fans. This is originally made for Linux sistems (I tested in Ubuntu only) but I supose that should work in other platforms. Based and inspired on Kado20es work ([link]§ion=&q=libreoffice#/d3ivxbc), I modified some faenza icons, and adapted them to libreoffice functions. All credits go to Faenza creators. Only minimal mods and collages made to that icons in this theme. Hope you like it. This is the first version. L.O. Calc is in progress. Cheers! Warning: the installation will temporary disable an existent style of LibreOffice (Crystal, by default) because the mod is based on one of the five avalaible themes. Sadly, no additional styles can be added to libreoffice, so I have to sacrifice one of the them in order to make the mod work. My favourites were human and tango... and allways hated Crystal, so my choice was just wipe it out by default
Note1: Only big icons will work properly, for now.
Note: super user password required. This will replace the original theme by the mod.
8) Open Libreoffice. Change icon theme from Options-view menu. Choose "Crystal" theme to apply the Faenza Style.
Note2: As I said, this mod sacrifices the Crystal theme. Sorry. Original Crystal theme will be backed up in the L.O. system folders as "images_cristal.orig.zip", and can not be used while this mod is active. If you want your Crystal style back, just erase the file named "/usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_crystal.zip" and rename the former into the original name.
...if you want to change the theme to be replaced, do this:
...:::Replacing Oxygen:::... (replace the above instructions for this ones
2) Open a terminal and type: sudo apt-get install libreoffice-style-oxygen 6) run: mv ~/libreoffice_faenzaMOD.zip ~/images_oxygen.zip 7) Now backup the original Oxygen theme and apply the mod by introducing this in a terminal: sudo mv /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_oxygen.zip /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_oxygen.orig.zip && sudo mv ~/images_oxygen.zip /usr/share/libreoffice/basis-link/share/config/images_oxygen.zip
...:::Replacing Human:::... (replace the above instructions for this ones
2) Open a terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-style-human
mv ~/libreoffice_faenzaMOD.zip ~/images_human.zip
7) Now backup the original human theme and apply the mod by introducing this in a terminal:
..:: IF YOU HAVE A MANUAL INSTALL OF LIBREOFFICE (3.3.+ OR 3.4+) CHANGE THE FOLLOWING STEPS::.. (note: assuming that you installed by .deb available in LO web. If you compiled the software, you'll probably know that you have to replace the install dir used in this tutorials for the one that you are using) (note2: this will replace the default theme, because I assume that you didn't installed other themes / you couldn't install other themes)
Warning: this will modify the original “Galaxy theme”. Please follow this instructions. After download in your home folder...
mv ~/libreoffice_faenzaMOD.zip ~/images.zip
For LibreOffice 3.4 7) Backup the original theme and apply the mod by introducing this in a terminal:
sudo mv /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images_cristal.orig.zip && sudo mv ~/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.4/basis3.4/share/config/images.zip Note: super user password required. This will replace the original theme by the mod.
For LibreOffice 3.3 (no ppa version, only via .deb@web or manual .tar.gz install) 7) Backup the original theme and apply the mod by introducing this in a terminal: sudo mv /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images_cristal.orig.zip && sudo mv ~/images.zip /opt/libreoffice3.3/basis3.3/share/config/images.zip Note: super user password required. This will replace the original theme by the mod.
hi underboy, when did you release 0.3 version? i'm just asking because i have a zip image of July 29th... it would have been good if you cloned the gihub repo and runned a `cp -aru' to your local repository because i'll end up by updating the whole images_faenza-mod folder if i try from a new updated zip archive.
I don't know why but there is a problem that I think that may make the things more difficult. When I first installed the ambiance evolution theme and opened both Inkscape and LibreOffice with the "darker" version, some icons just didn't got dark, the rest of them was, but they were not, like if they were jpg and the rest of them was png.... But with the new modifications, the ambiance evolution theme for inkscape has an option ("darkest") that works with all the buttons... Unfotunatly, when I active the dark mode for LO, it stills with the annoying light buttons in some icons.¬¬' I don't know how he fixed the Inkscape, but I guess there is the same problem with LO.
Whell, I guess this dosn't make difference for what you will do.... Good Luck so!
