Are there any icons you have in mind in particular, for replacement?
I think there are two things here -- and of course with icons everything
is a matter of taste.
The first thing is purely about the Windows version: That is based on
GTK-2 I think. I'm wondering if it's possible to switch to the
corresponding GTK-3 icons wherever the stock icons are used. That would
fit in better with newer OSes I think.
Secondly, gretl-specific icons: Some look pretty "pixelated" and not
very "iconic", if you know what I mean. However, this has also to do
with the pixel density and in terms of window looks also on the Windows
Let's consider the toolbar in the main window for example: on my laptop
screen with lots of pixels per cm (and Win7) the icons don't look very
modern but OK. On a bigger but standard desktop screen with less pixels
per cm (and Win10) especially the "open gretl console", "session icon
view" and "X-Y-graph" icons look suboptimal.
I've looked at the icon collection on a stock Ubuntu 17.10 system and
found some icons that might be nice and useful. I could send more
