Description:

After a few solid months of work, Tango Generator 3 is out. While it still lacks support for additional applications, it's a vast upgrade in terms of usability, reliability, expandability and icon coverage. And, as planned, it's out in time for Christmas (just)!

This release includes the following major changes:
[li]Nearly 10 more icon themes - pushing the total up to 24.[/li]
[li]Hundreds more icons drawn specifically for the generator.[/li]
[li]Updated and expanded icon themes.[/li]
[li]Improved usability - for example, themes can now be ordered via drag and drop, and ordering won't be broken due to accidential sorting.[/li]
[li]Support for Gnome 2.20.[/li]
[li]Support for distribution branding.[/li]
[li]Detection of required binaries.[/li]
[li]An entirely rewritten core: faster, more stable, more reliable and more efficient.[/li]
[li]A far more extensible structure - expect to see more rapid updates and more complete application coverage.[/li]
[li]Support for the saving, loading and distributing of theme configurations.[/li]

Note: To make use of updated packages, run 'rm -rf ~/.tango-generator/archives/*.tar*' before first run.

Please enjoy the app and, if you have time, have a look around the site. If you'd like to give something back, check out the 'Easy Contributions' link below.

Hi!

I built the .deb from the source code (using the -rfakeroot thing) and installed it that way.

When I try to run it however, I get this output:

nickemans@nickemans-laptop:~$ tango-generator
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/tango-generator", line 3, in <module>
from TGenerator import generator
ImportError: No module named TGenerator

I have Python versions 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6 installed, and I understand 2.6 is the problem, but how do I fix it?

Thanks!

Would it be possible to share the amazing artwork you made? I have in mind some nice tango icons like pyrenamer and gnome-video-arcade but couldn't find them anywhere. Thank you for tango-generator3, it was really handy for building iconsets (probably still is but I'm too lazy to compile it)

Unfortunately I'm having hosting problems and there isn't a lot I can do. Additionally, the generator is somewhat obsolete at this point and I'm gauging whether there's enough demand to warrant a new version.

Tango Generator presently downloads an archive called 'old-tango.tar.gz' that seems to be incomplete. This causes Tango Generator to abort since the archive doesn't extract properly.

There are several ways to get around it. The simplest way is to simply turn off Old Tango, though I don't know how that affects the quality of the generated icon set.

Sorry for the downed server - I've strayed over the bandwidth cap (10 GB), but things should be back up in a month. If anyone's interested in preventing this from happening again, I have implemented a mirroring system but have not as of yet received any offers to provide one.

May be it would be interresting to publish all themes who are availables by configuration files ?

It would be easier than download tango generator espacially when server is down

I have the same problem here. I sent a message to mejogid to inform him of the problem.
I managed to install the generator via a converted rpm package hosted on some OpenSUSE site, but the utility doesn't seem to work, because I think it tries to connect to the site.

Actually, the desktop file links to an icon called gnome-video-arcade so it won't show your icon (I guess it's yours) because it's named gnome-arcade.

Could you fix that?

Thanks for this new version of Tango Generator and the gutsy packages.

Sure, I'm guessing I was working off an unofficial desktop file. I'll add that link in the next release.
