After deciding to switch to the new IM client of GNOME I started to develop a theme to integrate it into our elementary interface. I started working from vectors published by DanRabbit and, after little modification, I used the color scheme of elementary icons theme to adapt them to the interface. 24x24 icons are positioned in the upper panel, notification area, which is why I used the totally gray vettors. The colored icons 16x16 and 22x22 (now removed) are used in the interface of the program, they include states (online, busy, away, etc) but also the action, if there is a new message, and applications, the two stars are been replaced. The theme is beautiful, and brings an air of innovation built a program with infinite potential, but still must grow.
The new version include only 16x16, for the interface, and 24x24, for the panel. This version adds new icons, such as user-typing, pendind request and extended away. I much prefer empathy to pidgin, this is definitely visible from my efforts in developing this theme, even when empathy was only a pidgin with fewer features. I hope many feedback and criticism, so as to further improve the theme! Enjoy!
1. Download the Zip; 2. Extract the archive; 3 Install elementary-monochrome-empathy.tar.gz like a normal icons theme!
