These are the best icons I've ever seen! Please, add the Google Chrome icon! Great job! :-)

Thanks for your comment, and thanks for the missing icon report! The google-chrome icon will now come with the next release. However chrome don't follow the gnome icon setting so you will have to apply the icon manually. Think it's the same with google-earth. =/

Amazing work as always! Wish these would ship with the default install! They combine nearly all the best minimalistic icon sets I've seen, plus being complete, and allowing for more customization. I really really like the new folder icons which look a bit like the 'area' set I used to use. Thank you so much for adding those. :-D

Hi, I've made some icons for other programs that look like your theme's ones (Avidemux, Dropbox and MoioSMS), I've put them in the "real icons" folder, but your script doesn't change their color.
How can i do?

Thank you!

First of all, thanks for showing interests in my icon theme. There are some "rules" as to how an icon should be constructed for my script to work. I will list them here below so you can do it yourself. But if you want you can send the icons to me and I will integrate them myself and ship them with the next release.

I don't know how experienced you are in this stuff but i will try to explain as basic as i can so anyone that is interested would at least have a chance to follow this mini guide.

Also worth mentioning is that for editing/making icons i use inkscape and a normal text-editor. So i will assume you have these tools available. Inkscape is free and a text-editor shouldn't be to hard to get a hold of. =)

Ok heres what is needed:

1. The icon should be in the svg file format.

2. No outlines "strokes" should be used. Well they won't make the script overlook the icon but they won't follow the selected color.

3. For gradients to work over the whole icon and not the separate pieces everything should be in one path. The easiest way for me to do this is to use select all in inkscape and then press "ctrl" + "+".

4. Open the file in a text editor and change "fill:(some color in hex)" to fill:url(#linearGradient1234).

5. Open an icons that already follows the color settings and find the first "<linearGradinet". Copy everything from that line down to the "<def". Paste that above the "<def" in the new icon.

6. For the next release that will be 0.8 all icons should have the width and height of 48 and have a distance to the edge of 2.

I think that covers everything. If you have any more questions i will try my best to answer them. Hope it works out for you. =)

Your icons are now integrated with the rest of the theme and will be shipped with the next release. You can also download them here:

I also packed the symlinks for them. =)

The easiest way to help would probably be like you just did. Send in new icons to me. It's kind of hard to cover a lot of app-icons by myself so that is highly appreciated.

As for working on the script feel free to try and implement whatever idea you have. I'll try my best to answer questions. =)

I use these icons as well! They are awesome! Thanks a lot!

And I've got an idea how to improve them even more: What about outlines? Since this is a simple style-option for svg-files, it shouldn't be that difficult... With a selectable thickness and color for the outlines, they would be much easier to read!

Greetings!

And don't stop the development :)

Thanks for your input.

Actually I experimented with outlines back in version 0.2 or something. Then it didn't work out as it just cluttered up the icons. In later versions I have changed the structure of the svg files so it might work now. So thanks for reminding me. =)

However right now I'm working on another feature (which if everything works out will be pretty cool imo) so it won't be implemented anytime soon.

I really like this great theme, but I found two small annoyances:

1. In the script to change distro logos, these debian lines miss a space:
cp -r ../logos/debian[space missing here]../real_icons/apps/checkbox-gtk.svg
cp -r ../logos/debian[space missing here]../real_icons/places/distributor-logo.svg

2. For nero linux 4, the icon is called nerolinux instead of nero, so just an extra symlink could fix that one.

Just 2 small things to take the theme up to 11.

I love your icon theme very much,but it doesn't work perfectly on my ubuntu9.10,some icons in the "Places" are missing.How can I fix it?

Report

Hard to say as I don't know what icons are missing. I have a fresh install of 9.10 and all the icons in "places" are covered by my icon theme.

Maybe you could upload a screenshot? It might help me in finding out what icons are missing.

Oh, I see. I haven't made specific icons for those "places". When switching from a theme that has specific icons for those "places" gnome-panel still tries to find the specific icons.

Try to restart gnome-panel by typing:
killall gnome-panel
in the terminal. Or logging out/in.

Now the usual folder icon should be there. If it doesn't work I can release a quick-fix.

For the next release I will consider making specific icons for videos, music etc.
