That would be great. There is a new section in the Manual 3.3.6 on Monitor adjustment, not sure if you have looked at it yet.

Confused. Displaycal is a display calibration utility. ACYLS is an icon set. ACYLS allows color changes to just the icon set, It puts a gray flat icon set in the Appearance>Icons settings, and has a configuration program to change the color of the set and other icon set appearance parameters saturation, hue drop shadows, glow, etc.

Ouch, my bad, i should have sent only the customed iconset, not the basic script/program.
I'm not familiar with archive.org either - a maze :/ maybe should i try github, after all.
Could you please try this archive ?

I was not referring to your post, I was answering the comment about DisplayCal which performs a completely different function.

Oops². I didn't watch the flow.
PS : seemingly because of spaces/blanks in icons names, ACYLS cache can't be updated (yet) via gtk-update-icon-cache. I'll have a look at this.

@k_sz, I might not have time to test the theme and icon colour changer until Fri night.

I did try the icons as is (when you posted your wallpaper screenshot, before you started this thread), in their original grey colour, and liked them. Now I know where the Sardi icons got their Ghost Flexible set from, haha.
Desktop: Intel i5-4460, 16GB RAM, Intel integrated graphics

Huhu ! Glad to discover Sardi iconset. Now i can play/mess with something [sarcastic] new[/sarcastic].
No hurry to test the theme (since i'm still chaotizing oomox output*) - thanks for your interest o/
*since Ark-Dark seems to be MX's choice, i probably should fiddle with it too.
