Description:

elementary: Empathy

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 structure is this:
~/.icons/hicolor/
|-- 16x16
| |-- actions
| | `-- im-message-new.svg
| |-- apps
| | |-- empathy-starred.svg
| | `-- empathy-unstarred.svg
| `-- status
| |-- empathy-available.svg
| |-- empathy-away.svg
| |-- empathy-busy.svg
| |-- empathy-extended-away.svg
| |-- empathy-offline.svg
| `-- im-message.svg
|-- 22x22 [removed]
| |-- actions
| | `-- im-message-new.svg
| |-- apps
| | |-- empathy-starred.svg
| | `-- empathy-unstarred.svg
| `-- status
| |-- empathy-available.svg
| |-- empathy-away.svg
| |-- empathy-busy.svg

UPDATE!

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!

INSTALLATION

1. Download the Zip;
2. Extract the folder "eEmpathy" and go into;

Hi! How can I hide menubar in Empathy?

Menubar disturbs me to change Empathy size.

P.S. Theme is great! Thank you!

Yes, let me know if you found out how that works.

Somehow empathy manages to still feel like a testing-release. It's just that so many many simple options that one knows from just about any gnome-application are missing. Just like "hide menubar". This causing a ridiculously wide window is just... Well it's not a functionality issue, empathy is great in that aspekt. But it's an UI issue.

In gconf theres nothing...
And so far my google has not been strong on this one...

Love the pidgin version of it. Did not manage to get empathy to use the theme. (ubuntu 10.4, elementary icons)

Also - Maybe if you get bored/crazy/insane: Gajim (for those simplistic folks among us) would be a wonderfull addition.

I like it because its "simple" way of working matches wonderfully with the elementary attitude. :)

Argh, never hit reload on this page. Sorry.

Just wated to say that I rand a quick convert to png for gajim and did some renaming. :)

lovely!

$ cd your-directory-with-the-svgs/
$ for i in *; do inkscape $i --export-png=`echo $i | sed -e 's/svg$/png/'`; done


it's your work so I won't dare to publish, since you might as well do that yourself (5 minutes of work) :)

many thanks.

And finally to round it all up, I replaced the statusicons of pidgin with yours. :)

icons are located in
/usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray/hicolor/...

If you drop me a message I can send you all this.

Thanks again for making my desktop look a whole lot smoother. :)

I fully agree. In fact I think that empathy is still a project a little bitter, but full of potential. Just think that coupled with the banshee plugin offers the possibility to listen to the music of others via streaming!
However, the menu bar was removed in the global menu, which I stopped using because it removes the icon from the menu of inkscape. We expect the new project ApplicationMenu or a new release of global-menu.

Cheers

I've tried extracting the contents of this archive to the following locations:

~/.icons/
/usr/share/icons/
/usr/share/empathy/icons/

and yet no change! I've even updated the hicolor icon cache via the following command:

sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/hicolor/

I did try to update the ~/.icons/hicolor/ however it reports that 'there is no theme index file', I assume owing to the face that the only content of ~/.icons/ before extracting there was ~/.icons/default/index.theme.

Does anybody have a clue why this isn't working (for me)?

Kind Regards,

Lee 'Nubey' Hyde.

I use the standard Ubuntu Radiance icon theme, and it works fine for me.

I used the following method :
1. Uncompress the zip archive
2. Copy the 16x16 and 24x24 folders in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ (needs root privileges)
3. Open a terminal and refresh the icon cache with root privileges : sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/
4. Quit and reopen Empathy
