A sad reason...

I'm not a developper and quiet new in objc programming. I've begun to learn it as a hobby because GWorkspace is my main desktop and I wanted to change it a little.

That's nice to read!

I'm also creating a little icon theme to use with it, because I'm not very found of the ones used in GNUstep (sorry guys...) and because I wanted something to fit with the Rik.theme, and also with icons I use for gnome apps.

For now, I've made a two liners patch to GWorkspace to change the default color of labels on the Desktop, because I wanted them to be white (as in the ThinkDark theme of Riccardo Mottola), and only them. I'd like to know if it will be possible to code this in a gnustep theme like Rik ?

Theming right not can't change details of how GWorkspace works and draws. Themes change how cross-applications features work, like menus, colors, windows. Not single applications, like GWorkspace is (you could write another file and desktop app and replace it)

In the same spirit, is it possible to assign in a gnustep theme alternative icons for applications and fileicons ?

Not that I know, generally this fits a wider set of theming features I need to complete some of my themes, but I did not bring this discussion up, because I don't think it i s the moment right now. I don't want to "waste" this shot of attention and right now it is best to kick out gui+back by cleaning out the bugs. Fred resigned, so these new developments will wait.

Just to say, I really want to thank everyone in this community for their work on GNUstep. I've found multiples tutorials from you on the internet to learn objc, and it is really nice.

Nice to know! thanks for the kind words.
