Gtk On windows and icon theme issue – continued.

Tags gmpc  Windows 32 

A long time ago I blogged about having issues with icon in gtk on windows.

It refused to look inside 16×16/24×24 etc directories. (see here ).

I think I finally found a solution. Grab the latest hicolor theme from here, extract the index.theme file and place it in  your gtk installd dir under  “share/icons/hicolor/”. This nicely fixes the problem for me.

So  now I can’t say install gladewin32 runtime and run this package.. But I have get users to install this “hicolor” theme too.

How to fix it…


edit: it looks like place-ing the index.theme in the root of my dir with the “16×16″ etc subdirs works. One step closer to better looking gmpc for windows.
