Numix iPack

Everyone loves to tweak their OS icons once in a while, here’s new cool icon set from neiio aka Jamie Green.

A Windows port of the linux Numix icons by satya164

 Supported OS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10


 

  • Perfect for flat or minimal themes.

This icon-patcher was created using the latest iPack Builder v2 created & developed by Mr-Blade *(UPDATED MAY 02 2015)

Included in the .zip you’ll find a text-file with instructions in the readme about re-naming both the included .ee files.

Due to deviantART’s policy concerning executable files, I’ve had to give this installer and the Reload Icons tool the temporary “.ee” file extension. You’ll need to change that extension for both files to an “.exe”

-Licensed under the GPL-3.0+

-No Live Folders

Comments and +fav‘s more than welcome!
Enjoy!

Transparency on Windows 8 & 8.1 without Aero Glass

Ever wanted to have transparency like Windows 7 on your windows 8/8.1 system? I bet you do.I came across Aero Glass but it wasn’t working for me.Every time I installed that little piece of software, it showed me “Incompatible DWM” and an ugly Watermark on bottom right of my desktop.I even tried to restart after installing it and all I got was a black screen & a message “Incompatible DWM” after logging in.So I started digging up the internet but I couldn’t find any best alternative to this but I do found some softwares which helped me to achieve usable transparency ( without aero blur ).

I couldn’t find any article on the internet which showed how to use these software’s together to achieve a true , stable transparency, so here I am writing this tutorial.All you gonna need is these 2 software’s (Download link at the bottom) :

  • WinaeroGlass.exeblendsettings
  • bLend.exe

First apply your theme let’s say aero it is.Now launch WinaeroGlass.exe. This doesn’t have any GUI interface, you just have to double click it and it will start and you will see transparent windows border.You are not done yet.The problem with this software alone is that you will find some flickering transparent windows when you move them and you will see you really can’t use those transparent windows so we are gonna need our second software bLend.exe.

After you are done with above steps, launch bLend.exe (with administrator rights).  A window will popup, the settings you need to change are highlighted in red in the image.

That’s all folks! You will love your new transparent borders on windows 8 and 8.1 systems.This is not working on Windows 10.

You might even want to  try my glass theme which works using these two software’s, here’s Infinitum VS

How to enable Windows 7,8,8.1 for custom themes

Most of the time I get messages ,emails that “your theme doesn’t work” and I always tell them to show a screenshot and 99% times they didn’t have their system patched properly.

I am gonna make this simple for all the guys out there who want to install custom themes and other stuff with ease!

OK let’s get started.

The first thing you gonna need is to patch the windows so that you can install custom themes.

If you are on windows 7 home basic or Starter then you will need this software to enable Aero otherwise none of the theme will work and you will regret that even after completing every step as instructed the theme didn’t work.

So next step for Windows 7 will be that most of the themes on windows 7 needs theme resource changer installed.What this little software does is you can add explorer frame navigation images and other control panel images in the theme folder so these images will load as soon as you apply the theme. ( you don’t need to edit dll files )

Next on windows 7 if you need to make your explorer windows and other applications transparent then go check this post

If you want to customize icons then you can get this 7tsp software.There are many icon packs available on the net which you can install using this software or you can even try my application iPack Builder which does the same job but is faster and much more user friendly.

To change the logon screen on windows 7 you can use this.

I think we are over with Windows 7 now we’ll talk about 8 and 8.1

So after patching you windows with above mentioned software ( bullet point 2 ) you really need to install OldNewExplorer what it is and what it does can be found here.

Next if you want to have a start menu on windows 8 and 8.1 just like windows 7 then I really recommend using this. Most of the themes on windows 8 and 8.1 are nowadays compatible with this startisback software you will have your start menu also skinned with your theme.

If you want to install icons then you again use 7tsp or iPack Builder

That’s all the information that you really need to become a Pro at installing themes.

P.S all of your themes are located at C:\Windows\Resource\Themes
