Description:

Simple started in 2009, and was continually updated till June 2010, where the idea was to create the most modern and visually pleasing icon theme for GNOME 2.x. Simple 2.7 builds upon 2.6.5 designed for GNOME 2.x and has been updated for GNOME 3.x / Unity while keeping backwards compatibility with GNOME 2.x

All previous versions including Simple Extra downloads can be found in the provided link

- Please feel free to comment on any issues or problems with Simple.

- Please remove previous versions before upgrading for best results

- Thank you to all the people who have helped improve this icon theme through feedback and comments

Any chance of an update for Simple any time soon? (Particularly if it had Mint 15 in-mind?) =D

It's interesting that this theme works very well with Marlin, but some icons are not displayed in Nautilus, defaulting instead to a blank file icon.
So far I have seen TXT and EML files like that, I don't know if there are more.

Thanks for the continued feedback, I will also look into that.

Thanks a lot for this great icon theme!
I think a "monochrome" option for the panel icons (as in ubuntu, elementary, oxymentary, etc.) could be very useful, although users can also implement this themselves (for example: http://i.minus.com/ibs3MialgA9KYF.png)
Kind regards...

Thanks for commenting, maybe you could upload the icon setup you are already using? and then it could be included into a updated Simple Extras as a added option.

What do you think?

Thanks again for the comment

No problem. I'll be happy to make such a small contribution.
In deed, on second thought, I've decided to follow the Ubuntu approach with a Mono-Light and a Mono-Dark option with one change: battery icon(s) showing a vertical battery instead of horizontal.
I'd also like to add a little gray to the black dropbox icon.
I can then make tar files of these and send to you later this week if you agree with the above.
Kind regards...

Its now one of my two favorite themes. A better animation for network connecting would be nice, at the moment it uses the standard animation which doesn't really match to the rest of the icons.

Could you add icons for JDownloader, Leafpad and Thunar as Mjölnir?


Sorry for my bad English.

Thanks for the comment skull-y, updating the network connecting icons e.g. WiFi is already planned and will possibly be added to later version. I will also look to add JDownloader, Leafpad and Thunar icons to 2.8+

Nice icons, but I found next issue with Minitube 1.2 and Kadu 6.5.4
Like on the screens:

When I change the icon set to default in Ubuntu 10.04 is ok.
Breaks down only with "Simple" set.

With Empathy, icons are a little bit too big, and in conversation windows, smileys are very very very big
Like that :

Thanks for commenting and giving a screen shot, I will fix the emotions and reduce the other icons to possible 32x32 instead of 36x36.

Sorry again for the problems with Simple

I hope we can fix the issues and get Simple up to the high standard i and people expect.

Sorry i will have another look, reason the testing is done on a Live CD as seen in the screen shot is, ATM my laptop is down, due to my charger having recently died (Waiting for a new one). So i am currently running the Live CD on my Windows Machine.

I will have another look as seen in the screen shot it was showing correctly and not huge. Hopefully it can be fixed soon

Thanks again for testing
