There are several Azenis Window Decorations available at this time, depending on which Desktop Environment you are using. Including the Azenis-Black, which is what I am using now.
I no longer will theme GNOME desktop, however.
I will need to look into the Fedora Updates icon as I never used Fedora before. I am sure I can find the icon shortly.

Thanks, zaileion. It is helping me to learn a great deal more about Blender, Gimp and also... how to constantly update a set.... - Sep 08 2020

I agree with your take entirely. The trend includes that we are told is that theming is "bad" and the active Developers dislike theming as it detracts from the Appearances that make their developments recognizable. The gnome look is essentially a brand image.
A reminder should be: The Gnu General License encourages Free Software - Free from restrictiveness and non-user Control. I believe that themes and Icon sets are a Strong Message in favor of Free Software.

If you click support on the website, it is a general pool of Pling / Open.
Updating the icons or making the themes has helped me learn how to take control of my desktop -or at least take some of it back. Along the way, I share my experiments in learning in case others can enjoy the results. Though it partly is why I REALLY appreciate it when those thta download notify if something is wrong.
I have thought about setting up a patreon acct before... But the idea seemed silly. Maybe I should consider it, if that allows me to sometimes take time off work to do something I enjoy and others can enjoy and learn a lot more, faster. - Aug 30 2020
Thanks Snowboarder. Yes, I generally like 3D icons or skeuomorphism. Have never understood the trend toward flat pastel looking icons. I wonder if it is truly a user trend, or a trend we are told that we like, whether we really do or not. - Aug 30 2020

I did get a bit too harsh, didn't I? It was late already when I found the issue and realized why suddenly, the set was not working. I probably should have waited a day.
I moved over to Linux around the beginning of last year. I had never heard of Azenis or GnoMenu. By the time I got with the program, all of it was a thing of the past. And the more I looked around, the more it looked like that was a trend that would not only continue, but sharpen.
I had hoped that if my novice self could clobber together some poor, but working themes, I may inspire others to do the same. I have never been a complacent type of person and I like to stand up to what I see if wrong.
Demanding control over users desktops is wrong, even if we can call it Right to enjoy diversity and customization.
Now, I am using Zorin 15.3 and rocking multiple sets of icons, some uploaded here, some not. I have an App Menu rewritten and customized to closely resemble the GnoMenu and I uploaded some means of doins similar for Arc menu, Zorin Menu, Whisker Menu, Stark Menu and Cinnamenu- with varying degrees of failure.
We can rock if we want to, no matter what others try to seize control of. - Aug 26 2020

Gracias. :)
Este tema es uno de mis favoritos personales. Si disfrutas de temas muy oscuros, mantente atento a un próximo proyecto, "Azenis-Black", que es un remake "desde cero" de Azenis con muchas correcciones y en tonos muy oscuros.

This theme is one of my personal favorites. If you enjoy very dark themes, keep an eye out for an upcoming project, "Azenis-Black" which is a "from the ground up" remake of Azenis with many fixes and in very dark tones. - Aug 10 2020
Archangel-12 Icon set for all desktops

Full Icon Themes by aravisian 8 comments

I have been playing around with using the XNconverter instead of the Gimp Batch Processor and have found a somewhat reasonable way of Changing Icons Coloration even with gradients- By converting them inverted, then adjusting the hue, then converting them back inverted. It will take some time of playing with the hues to figure out which hues lead to which color... But soon, I may be able to offer these in other colors much less painfully. ;)

I just needed to ensure that those that I was aware had suffered my misconceived attempts at making a theme had a chance at redemption. - Aug 09 2020

About 7 months later- this set is updated again to include over 300 more new icons, mostly application icons:

Archangel-12 Icon set for all desktops

Full Icon Themes by aravisian 8 comments

And please remember that this is something I do in my free time, I am an amateur and one person. I enjoy skeumorphism and non-flat Icons and I share what I come up with for my own computer with others, hoping they may enjoy them, too. But I am not a team of people that can undertake Large Tasks neither quickly nor easily. Most of these icons use Gradient Colors so it cannot be Recolored en masse.
Nor get paid for it in order to spend that much time on it. Maybe I should start up a patreon account...

Full Icon Themes by aravisian 8 comments

ikxik, sorry but no. Not at this time. Currently, Archangel does not come in Green or Red colors and it is far too much work for me to recolor 400 or so icons individually, to make a new set at this time. I am backlogged with updating GT3 and other icon sets, now with the new App Icons I put into this one. - Aug 02 2020
CinnamonChad, I am very sorry to take so long with this. I had pulled the listing in order to make repairs and it ended up following in the footsteps of all other projects that preceded it. But it should be fixed, now. I just texted it as working on Cinnamon 4.4.8 - Jul 28 2020
Thanks, I took a look at some of your themes, as well. Puts me to shame.

CORRECTION AND UPDATE: I have managed to replicate this. I notice I did misplace the wrong metacity file when I assembled the theme- however, corrected that did not resolve- I will continue to work on finding the problem and solving it.
- Jun 14 2020
Cinnamonchad, I have attempted to replicate this on a build of Cinnamon D.E. 4.4.8 on Zorin. I failed to replicate, so I tried it on fresh copies of Mint 19.3 Tricia with 4.4.8 Cinn and Mint 20 (BETA) Ulyana with cinnamon 4.6
I was still unable to replicate any Window Border issues, with multiple themes including Azenis, Empire and this one.
I examined the Metacity files and both of the above use Metactity3.
Can you give any details as to how the Border was not working correctly? - Jun 14 2020
Cinnamonchad, let me see if I can replicate it and then find why the Metacity is failing. It May be that 4.4.8 has made a change in the Metacity. I will try to find out swiftly.
- Jun 14 2020
Ioannes, thanks for the suggestions. I will add this to the project suggested by Redinator, below.
That said... I thought I remembered making the VLC icon- specifically because it gave me a bit of trouble in copying and I had to reformat it. Maybe I am thinking of Empire set- but I will check.

Thank you, Krig - May 24 2020
Thanks Krig. The original is by TreeTog for the Other Operating System and was originally ported to Linux (Old Gnome, back when Gnome was good) by JamesHardy88, Technoshaun and others.
This was my effort at bringing it up to speed for newer Desktop Environments. I don't know about talent... I have done this with several themes to teach myself and to develop more independence in my own desktop look, whichever desktop I use at a moment. The design and most of the imagery is original to the Original Authors with only necessary modifications to conform to GTK3. I have not been doing much with themes lately, as I focus on work and other projects (Mostly automotive and mechanical) and by the time I sit down at a computer to do Computer work, I will probably have forgotten the css I learned in doing these :D - May 08 2020
That would be the polite thing to do and on others, I certainly have done that. This particular piece was a suggestion for One Individual who had asked for a solution to using PaulXFCE's theme. I put it here for him to download and thought I would leave it up for others in case they May be interested in it. (Or interested in Improving it).
Many O.A.'s have moved on to other interests and are unresponsive.
And I often point out in my "Creations" that others may take them, use them, improve them, redesign them and distribute them as they wish.
This particular piece is a Ten-minute slap together to address one persons concern and is certainly NOT a replacement to the extensive work done by PaulXFCE.
When it comes to Open source, creative commons and public Domain, that is how it works.
If PaulXFCE sees this and requests that it be taken down, I certainly will comply- And I will think less of him for it.
- May 08 2020
Redinator thanks for the vote and the suggestion. As it is currently, I have enough work and projects going to keep me busy for several months, at least. But I added your idea to my notes and in free moments, I will work on it. It may be a bit of a wait, but please check back in. If time passes and you would like an update, I am easily reachable at aravisian@protonmail - May 07 2020
Yes, but I think it was worth all of the time. I am using this one and have been since I posted it. It has become my favorite, alongside of Azenis2 - Apr 23 2020
Thank you :) - Apr 23 2020
Solsitceman, thanks for the encouragement. It is frustrating that if you do a search on "best themes" you get articles written in tech-mags that all display the same tired flat pasty themes and tell you how much you are going to love them.
I see you have been hard at work making themes as well. Thanks for keeping customization alive. - Apr 16 2020

Advent Fusion Cinnamon Theme - NOCSD

Cinnamon Themes by aravisian 7 comments

This one and Empire really do tickle me.
Thanks Panisawesome, feedback and reporting issues is VERY helpful. I more often find things wrong when testing by myself, then I feel humiliated that I uploaded something that wasn't working quite right.
Prowler- I admit, it needs a LOT of work. I slapped that one out way too fast. I also have an odd problem with it- I dislike working on it. It took me a while to figure out why... But the reason is that the theme mixes Light and Dark and that makes it a nightmare on the contrast issues. This causes me to shun going back into it to fix things. I have considered doing a ReMake of it- starting over from scratch and changing the base nature of it.
I notice that XFCE4.14 broke Ninja by Don5318 whereas it worked great on 4.12. Another thing I need to fix. Then, Making This Advent Fusion theme, I learned some new css tricks that will enable me to fix some things that Plagued me in Azenis-One and AzenisEX. So, I need to go back in and do that. I still have not created a Cinnamon for CopperdeckEX...
I probably need to step back from making new things and go back to the start and take each already uploaded theme, one a time, and Bring them all up to speed. - Mar 03 2020
