Classic95
Icon Themes
Description:

Classic icons for GNOME/MATE based on Windows 95.

This new version was developed for the MATE desktop, so more icons will be changed in MATE than in GNOME. This will be the last release in a while. It is still incomplete, but a large improvement over previous versions. Looks very good with the Classic95 and Tux-Overlay Matenu/Gnomenu themes (seen in the screenshot). The gtk theme in the screenshot is Xfce-Redmond with the Xfce engine commented out. I hope this update will be enjoyed, it was fun to put this together.

hi,
yes it works better now.
It works very well on gtk3/cinnamon too. The only remaining problem is the start menu.

I've long been waiting for. How good that people love retro. Now this is my favorite design and I'm not going to change it.
By the way, with Motif theme looks also very good.

Not really a bug, as the 22x22 actions icons are not done yet. The Redmond GTK theme uses 16x16 actions icons in MATE and LXDE, but it looks like GTK 3 uses 22x22. Drawing the 22x22 actions icons will be my next project.

No, the archive itself, ios not corrupted.
Extract the archive with something like file-roller -> Rename the extracted file to classic95.tar -> Extract the classic95.tar to your icon themes folder.

how you see missing icons exist
probably simlinks help
from the default folder to these ones
or if you found the adecuates, those are the only needed for a good interface to imitate the old times

Your icon theme looks a lot like win 95.
I'm currently working for an windows 7 theme for ubuntu 12.10.
I think a win95 like Desktop session could be difficult to run under newer linux versions. Perhaps you can use a modified cinnamon version or xfce.Mate or icewm aren't under a fast devellopment.

The icon theme itselfs runs under gtk3 too.

Thanks for the feedback. A modified Cinnamon sounds like a cool project. It would be nice to see a modern featured desktop with a classic look and feel.
