Thanks for the explanations and sorry for taking a bit to respond.
where are gretl's custom icons located, and where do they come from?
If you want, I can help compile a set of icons for a more consistent
look across systems.
I don't think so. If we hard-wire our own icons that would
make gretl inconsistent with other GTK programs on the same
platform. The right thing is to let the theme take care of the
icons, along with other aspects of the program's appearance.
