Description:

This iconset won't ever have a massive modification.
All the work I am doing on it right now is just trying to push it to perfection, making small changes release after release [you can see what's happening in the changelog below], so please feel free to report any bug you experience, but first of all ensure you've read the instructions file ;)

Now.. the description can begin...



At first I collaborated with crhispy, releasing different coloured versions of his worderful port "Oxygen-Refit".
Now I decided to create a fork of his porting, integrating some icons I caught around the web, and some others I edited/created by myself.

Please feel free to report and bug within the comments.

A great big thank for you all.

UPDATE

Archlinux users can install this iconset from the AUR repository, just typing:

yaourt -S hydroxygen-iconset

Hydroxygen are also have been included within the GNU/Linux Paldo official repos.
Many thanks to kim88.

I've checked a lot of icon sets even after I've installed hydroxygen and couldn't find anything better.

I found it! I changed all instances of firefox-3.0.png in the change-type.sh script to firefox-3.5 and now it works! By the way, I have firefox3.5.7 installed. Quite time intensive search. Hope my girlfriend still wants me...

how can we switch between two different icon themes? Right now I have only one icon theme(ACYL) which was activated as soon as placin it in .icons directory.
If I place another theme in the directory which theme would get activated?
How does this work?

Yes, you want to extract the folder with your icons in the .icons folder. Then, in your Ubuntu menu, go to System>Preferences>Appearance , and click "customize" (a button on the bottom-ish). Click on the "icons" tabs and click on your new icons.

My absolute favorite icon theme of all time. Does anyone know why my small icons blur though? I'm sure it has something to do with the theme referencing to the wrong size png, but it ruins the whole theme :(

If someone wants the light version of hydroxygen (42 MB instead of 72) just remove the original hydroxygen and install this one:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1113702/hydroxygen/hydroxygen.tar.gz

it requires zenity for the diplaying of the download progress bar.

The modified script inside allow you to have just the folder type you want, allowing you at the same time to download the new desired one.

[Usage] sh change-type name_of_the_stuff

(it's the same as before)

enjoy

Beautiful theme. Love the customizations. My only problem is the size of the package. It's huge. Perhaps some work on reducing the size?

One possible fix, among others perhaps, would be a cleanup script. After settling on a set of options using the customization script, perhaps unused options could be removed.

E.g., if user choosing navibrown and ubuntu and folder-dust, cleanup would remove all other folder types, logout types, etc.

This could be a separate scrupt called cleanup or something.

So you won't be able anymore to change the features selected =D

An easy way to have a smaller size and no unwanted icons is to split the online pack into parts so, when you choose "red folders" you download and install ONLY red folders ;)

This happens with a lot of themes for Jaunty. It is a known bug issue and it is being worked on.

For some reason, the new Jaunty notification doesn't show an icon when it connects. Is there a fix coming for this?
