Make it yourself icon theme : from Sardi Mono Numix Colora to Sardi Mono Numix Colora Hot Pink

In the Sardi Mono Numix Colora folder you will find a script to change all colored icons to any colour you want.

We use inkscape to test what colour combinations we like and copy/paste the codes into the script and run it.

We end up making a new icon theme.

16 million colour choices
