nouveGnome is a colorful icon set for GNOME, compatible with most light GTK themes. It isn't a complete icon set but depends on GNOME Desktop icon theme. nouveGnome is inspired by nuoveXT.

For a gray variant, compatible with dark themes, see nouveGnomeGray:…

Looks like this is no longer being worked on. Shame really, I hate the current mega-ugly flat crap that everyone seems to be doing nowadays. :\

I don't use gtk anymore; so I left nouveGnome as it was. However, I try to keep nouveGnomeGray up-to-date and rely on gtk users for that.

Perfectly alright. Especially as GTK+ seems to be focusing on GNOME at the expense of other GTK desktops these days.

Turns out I'm trying to learn Qt right now (QtQuick currently, the C++ stuff later). Couldn't get the thing to work on my Windows installation. I'm going to dual boot with Fedora and see if I can get it to work there. XD

My ultimate goal is to start work on a flexible plugin-based desktop environment. Probably using some KF5 components (definitely Solid, Solid would save a lot of headache methinks). ;)

6 years ago, when someone asked, "Qt or GTK+, which one is better?", the answer was, "both are good," but now Qt is definitely better.

For DE, I'd recommend LXQt  (its latest GitHub version). If you're a Qt programmer, you're always welcome to join the team.

For styling Qt apps, you could use Kvantum (from GitHub).

I like and code in Qt but, personally, I dislike QtQuick/QML because its styling capability is minimal -- just an opinion.

Thanks! I'll keep those in mind! ;)

Are you part of the LxQt team? That's so neat! :D

Yes, I joined the team a year ago and mostly work on pcmanfm-qt -- but not only it. If you try LXQt, please use its latest version because it's always being actively developed. The GitHub version is stable enough most of the time.

Would you be willing to port this set to KDE?
tsujan's avatar
I've ported nouveGnomeGray to KDE as "nouveKDEGray :) It isn't finished yet.

I may do the same thing for nouveGnome in the future.
Hello Tsujan,

I downloaded your new file. Everything worked well and this beautiful blue bird found its colors.

Thank you for your understanding, your availability and your quickness.
