Just to understand the issue a bit better. Are you using libicns to read the
icns file or is the fallback to the GNUstep implementation used? The later
implementation is rather limited and won’t be able to handle your added formats.
And why didn’t you add a 48x48 version?
To be clearer : I add for each app a resource folder in
Sombre.theme/Resources. Here, I add
And I place the custom icon inside. It must be named as is named the
appicon in InnerSpace plist file : InnerSpace_Icon.icns.
I tried to replace it with a 48x48 InnerSpace_Icon.tiff but it didn't
work. Should it work ? If so, I must have missed something and should
retry. I remember to have replaced tiff files with png files in
rik.theme long ago.
So to answer your question, I don't think I use libicns, unless
GWorkspace uses it to read icns files. But I don't see this library in
I would like to be able to reproduce the same sizes as Greg in my icns
file, but I don't know how. If I don't generate the missing @2x files
with my conversion script, iconutil complains about them and fail on osX
ElCapitan. I tried my conversion script on osX Leopard, but it misses
the iconutil tool.

Hi everyone !
I'm working on theming icons again and ma facing a problem with InnerSpace icns
icon. This is the first icns ifle I've encountered in gnustep applications
I've created a custom SVG icon for it, which I've converted to 1024x1024 png.
I don't now how Gregory did generate its original InnerSpace_Icon.icns file.
I didn't find any linux tool to convert it to icns file and only found a little
script on the web using apple's sips and iconutil tools.
The problem is that the resulting icon doesn't display properly at 48x48 size
in GWorkspace. At this size, the icon displayed is in fact the 32x32 one and is
smaller than all the others. I think GNUstep and/or GWorkspace don't display
correctly high res icns file at this size.
I can see on Macos Preview differences between my icns and Greg's one :
Greg's contains 16x16, 32x32, 128x128, 256x256, 512x512 at 72 ppm sizes, plus a
512x512@2x (1024x1024 at 144 bpm).
Mine contains the same plus 16x16@2x, 32x32@2x, 128x128@2x, 256x256@2x.
I attach the script used to generate the icon and the icon itself to this mail.
Can someone help me figure out how to override this problem ?
Last question : Gworkspace seems to display icons better at 64x64 if it's an
icns file than a 48x48 tiff file. Should I increase the size of my icons ?
Would it be possible to implement bigger sizes in GWorkspace (128 ? 256 ?)
using bigger tiff files or this format containing multiple files? GWorkspace is
a little poor looking compared to other filemanagers and desktop in this area.
