A theme to for HiDPI displays (Macbook Pro Retina / X1 Carbon).
I am (at the time of writing) running Gnome 3.18 and Gimp 2.8. Gnome handles scaling the UI pretty well but Gimp is lacking with the icons.
In summary, I just replaced the icons with flat-style SVGs and changed the background color.
1.) First, download the zip file of this repo.
2.) Then unzip it into your local Gimp themes folder:
$ unzip gimp-hidpi-master.zip -d ~/.gimp-2.8/themes/ $ mv ~/.gimp-2.8/themes/gimp-hidpi-master/ ~/.gimp-2.8/themes/gimp-hidpi/
3.) Then choose the theme in Gimp via
Edit > Preferences.
imagerc file was inspired by the sv32 icon theme:
The icons are from the GNOME Project. Specifically I found them here:
This repo: ISC
The icons: CC BY-SA 3.0
