This is a really great theme. I love it. But I noticed that the Network Manager icon doesn't change according to the wireless signal.

hmm.. I don't use wireless myself, so I can't really test this. But, I have screenshots from other people's computers that show it at different levels!

Awesome set. For some reason though, all the icons are really small for me. The back button, home button etc; The folders are the right size. How do I fix this? Using Ubuntu Linux 8.04

You should also make more colors. A nice black set would be great.

Found the gray folders. Love em. Now I wish there was an all gray set. Does anyone know how to change the icon size?

I wish there was an edit button, I don't like triple posting...

This may be something to do in the very far future (colors). But, right now I don't have time to manage both elementary and multiple forks of it! However, please feel free to embark on this project, if it is really what you desire.

These icons are actually compatible with XFCE. Awesome job, man, anyone who actually bothers to do that with their icon set deserves some recognition.

Looks great under Gnome too. Only a few icons aren't being used right:

- The icon for Epiphany is the default. Not sure why.

- The networkmanager icons don't show up if there's no wireless network (and therefore no signal strength to indicate). For now maybe just use the max signal strength icon for wired networks?

- I think the volume manager may still be using the Gnome default icon.

- The power manager icon is still Gnome default; I'm not sure if this is because the replacement is missing or if it's a real bug.

Still, in spite of this - awesome icon set. And don't listen to the people who whine about it being imitation Mac, it looks a lot closer to Tango.

A lot of icons in here are going to be the GNOME default for now, especially with app icons.

However, its major revision time, once again. So, I'm looking at everything that you guys are saying and sorting it out by priority.

Excellent work!, I specially love the action and alerts icons, they look soft and professional. The theme has a good consistency. The only things I don't like is the default folder color as it doesn't have good contrast with the background of the file manager (Changed to darker blue and it looks great.)
Keep up the good work!

Since I LOVE these icons, I thought I'd let you know of some bugs/suggestions so you can make it even better. I'm using version 1.8 and normal-sized buttons.

1. The back/forward arrows in 24x24 don't have shadows. It looks weird, since all other toolbar icons have them. The go-first/go-last icons are also missing shadows.

2. When you press alt + f2, the buttons are much larger than in previous version.

3. The shuffle/repeat buttons are not consistent with the rest of the media buttons. This sticks out really bad when using Banshee 1.0 in shuffle mode.

4. Some of the included gnome/tango icons have glossy arrows instead of gradient like the rest of the arrows in the theme. (logout and document-revert icons for example)

5. In appearance preferences, the icon next to customize button is smaller than the other icons.

6. In liferea, rows with attachments are twice as large.. this gets fixed if you delete the 32x32 mail attachment icon.

7. As others said, a computer icon would be great, and so would an updated pidgin icon!

Sorry if this seems like a long list, I just thought you'd save some time if I pointed all these things out. Keep up the great work!

I absolutely love your icon theme. However, I've noticed a small glitch w/ your new wifi signal icons (which I think are absolutely marvelous), sometimes the signal bar reverts to the default instead of the new one at different signal strenghts. I am thinking that it must be that a few percentages don't have an icon associated with them. I am not an expert in icon packs, so I can tell which ones, but I guess hopefully a quick-and-dirty look through the pack should give you which exact percentages give rise to that behavior.
Other than that, PERFECT WORK!
I congratulate you on this pack. It makes my desktop look so clean!

Hey Dan i know where the problem is, see the screenshot below. 1.7 was still using the original wireless icons with the white blank spaces and no shadows, the missing one is the nm-signal-100 one all of the gnome-netstatus ones are there.

oh okay. Well its all resolved then now :)

I'm almost done with the new actions.

I just really feel like I need to restyle the media actions. I'm going to upload the newest revision to box. You want to check it out and let me know what u think?

The Mime type icon for Excel spreadsheets is twice the size of all the other icons. It's been bugging me for ages until I realised its because the PNG itself is 512x512 instead of 256x256. You might want to correct that :)

Rescale play, pause icons (smaller) to fit inline with other action icons.

Make oulines darker (maybe 50-60 less luminance) to remove 'fuzzy' effect

Different colours for alert, delete, cancel?

Dash of blue on the lens of search icon? (it's a bit plain now)

Less roundness on the terminal icon?

Thank you and well done!

Report

play and pause are bigger on purpose. Makes them come into focus among other media controls. Look at a lot of popular media players, the play/pause buttons are always bigger.

Also, right now I'm working on HIG for the actions folder.

I'm not sure about you, but my magnifying glass has a clear lens :)

The terminal icon takes its roundness from the system monitor icon. so I believe it is consistent.
