I totally love this icon theme! sofar the best icon theme i have ever come across!

I did have 2 small icon problems (gnome-terminal and synaptic icons) were way to big in my programs menu (im using linux mint this being my mintmenu) I think that they were using the 48*48 size instead of 22*22.

I resolved by using the svg's and exporting them to the correct size placing them in the 22*22/apps/ and repackaging. and whoalah it fixed the problem.

Just letting you know so maybe you can do the same.

Thanks Kynan. Keep up the awesome work!!

Hey, if you're that awesome you should join the effort, seriously!

It'd definitely speed up the process if someone could help me get all the icons exported to the smaller sizes!

and if you want to send that package to me so I could merge it in, that would be great!

I would be glad to help!, i'm currently studying at uni fulltime but when i get spare time i'll help out :).

i noticed that alot of the same icons are copied rather than linked to the original and this greatly increases the total folder file size especially when we are dealing with svg's since most of them tend to be 20-30kbs each.

So i think i could help by making them all links. This will make downloading the theme much faster and more attractive to have as a default theme on an OS.

And then after that i could get to the exporting.

it might take me a while to get there but ill post here when i'm done and supply a download link.

Ok i have completed the linking.
The tar.gz went from 7.4mb to 6mb which is rather nice and should help speed up those downloads. :)

As for the exporting, all i have done is replace the two icons that i was having trouble with and as well the quit and control centre icons as they were a tad small and deformed in my mint menu which made it look crooked. Everything lines up and looks really good now, so i thought i'd send you a link so you can also work with the smaller filesize.

Are you having a problem with the icon theme itself or the pixmap-hack self-installer?

Only noobs use Ubuntu? Im not a Ubuntu user either, but anyone that uses a Linux Distro no matter what is very smart and in no case a noob. Only a noob would bash a linux distro. Figure out how to create your own distro noob. The fact that Ubuntu is owned by a multibillionaire and asks nothing for their distro and offers some of the best support over any linux distro on the net shows alot. Ubuntu is a great distro, maybe not the best, but definately not in any way bashable.

There's one issue with Ubuntu: Many Debian Package-Maintainers are listed as Ubuntu Package-Maintainers, even if they didn't package for Ubuntu, so they just took the Debian Package and rebuild it. (especially in Universe).

okay maybe you didn't read it at all. But the whole point was that I switched from a self-mentioned compiled-from-nothing spin-off of Gentoo to Ubuntu over the weekend. thanks for reading.

Hi!

Nowtimes I downloaded lot of iconthemes, because I'm hunting for mime icons and I found my PSD feather in your iconset. When somebody uses my work, I'm happy. If you need other things, you can use it: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Tango+mine?content=76316
The old SWF, PSD and CDR themes joined in the Tango mime icons.
New icons: Quicktime and Skype. Few days and I will upload some new icons.

Have a nice day!

I tried both of your themes, and while they give the desktop a great look I have the following issue with them.

Clicking on a menu entry like "edit" for instance takes a file till there is some kind of response and the underlying menu list is shown up.

1. clicking on "edit" in nautilus takes a while till it shows the entries.
2.clicking on the search button on the toolbar in gedit takes even longer.

I don't know if there are more examples for this.

After I change the icon theme, everything is showing up immediately.
I have experienced this issue since the 1.2 release, but have forgotten to comment it here

I've got the same problem, gedit is pretty well unusable with the "small" version (normal seems to be okay). The same problem happens on a P4 desktop and a Centrino laptop - doing anything in gedit other than just typing will result in CPU spikes and take a few seconds to respond (in the case of "find", it's up to 10 seconds). It doesn't make a difference how large of a file is open.

This is strange because I use gedit every day on a computer with a 1.2GHz amd and 768mb of sd ram. and I haven't seen any slowing. even with a ton of apps running. Try the new icons and if it still doesn't work, I really don't know what to say. Update gedit??

don't understand the complaints. future versions of the icons can still be downloaded for free regardless. If you want to stay in the cutting edge, then by all means help the author out and donate. Otherwise, just be patient and wait for the free newest set...Not too difficult. Its not like the author has completely shutoff downloading future versions unless you pay for it.

Elementary icons has a new fresh look to them
that I like :)

Nice to see stuff that are not aero or
osx and still looks very proffesional!

voted good ofc :)

As for all the fuss about the donation
I don't understand since
that is none of our business
and wtf is a troll?

Keep up the good work!

So its based on CC-BY-SA (Tango etc)icons & GPLed/LGPLed ones(crystal). And then you call the result GPLed. The GPL & CC-BY-SA licenses are not compatible. So you are trying to charge for something that appears to be a copyright infringement.

I wasn't aware that Tango was not GPL. However, you can go download Tango at any time. You can also download my sources at any time. And, you can even download this icons set FREE OF CHARGE at any time.
I will iterate once more that the only case in which a mandatory donation is required, is when you want to download a pre-release copy of elementary icons.
