Change accent and highlight color of Qt5 Kvantum and Gtk 2/3 theme

Hi all,

I happened to find the Qt5 Kvantum theme engine looking to have VLC Qt5 frontend somewhat close to my MATE Gtk3 desktop. Having found out about Kvantum, I stumbled across Adapta Gtk theme[0] and its port to KDE[1]. Its Nokto variant is just great. And they fit perfectly - Qt5 and Gtk3 and you cannot tell. smile

Now, that theme has its blueish accent color. And I just prefer a violet color instead. The last days I put a script together to switch colors for Kvantum themes - quite easy as it is a plain config and svg with hex-rgb color values to replace - and for Gtk 2/3 themes. Gtk is not quite so easy. There are css and svg - again easy -  but there are png and gresource files - png and css container.

Luckily, there is imagemagick's convert and its documentation, gresource and glib-compile-resources to unpack gtk resource files, recolor all png and bundle things up again.

I wonder if this is anyhow useful to anyone but me. O well, whenever I got something I like to make it public. You never know when it may come handy to you?! So, here is the script and take the pieces with pride, if it hoses your system. Have fun! big_smile
