Colored Tool Icons for GIMP and Glimpse

This is a minor modification to the included “Symbolic” icon theme for GIMP / Glimpse, typically used with a dark UI theme. It creates a sort of visual grouping according to colors.

The colors I selected really only work with a dark theme, and in the screenshots you see here I’m using the GTK theme “Material Black Blueberry” (on a KDE system):

To install the icon theme, go into either the subfolder named “Gimp” or “Glimpse”, depending on which one(s) you are using. Then copy the theme folder, named “Symbolic_FlatColors”. You’ll need to paste it into a different folder depending on the app in question. Note that both will need root priveleges in order to copy.

For Gimp copy the icon theme into:

/usr/share/gimp/2.0/icons/

For Glimpse, assuming you installed with Flatpak, copy the icon theme into:

/var/lib/flatpak/app/org.glimpse_editor.Glimpse/x86_64/stable/6b2933235dce861d8826a13d1e7af37dc1e77bcd398fa7b93cb3414272599fea/files/share/glimpse/2.0/icons

Note that the directory named 6b2933235dce861d8826a13d1e7af37dc1e77bcd398fa7b93cb3414272599fea may be named differently on your system. You’ll know you’ve found the correct icon folder when you also see the default “Symbolic” and “Symbolic-Inverted” themes inside.

There are other icon directories allowed in settings for both Gimp and Glimpse, but I found that the custom icon theme wasn’t picked up unless I used the directories listed above. If you know how to make the themes work in a different location, let me know.

Custom Toolbox Settings

The colors I chose are to group icons in the way I personally prefer them. If you would like to have your icons grouped in the same way these are the settings I used:
