Description:

The Tango Project (http://www.tango-project.org/) exists to create a unified look-and-feel on Open Source & Free software projects.

Actually, these guys did the hard work, not me. The only thing I did was going trough the hassle of compiling, fixing, and updating some things.

As stated earlier the package is not installable by adding it in Kcontrol's Icons module. But still easier then it seems. Skip the download link below and open up a terminal. Copy'n'paste following rule, press enter and wait a few minutes. THIS WORKS!!!!!

cd ~/.kde/share/icons && wget "http://www.kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=45731&id=1" && tar -xvzf Tango-1.0.tar.gz && rm Tango-1.0.tar.gz && kcmshell icons && cd ~

Some notes:
- All the icons are converted from their SVG originals (including the tango-icon-theme-extras package)..
- After seeing that ksvgtopng is not able to convert SVG transperency I used rsvg to build the iconset.

Have a lot of fun with it!

Thank you very much, it looks great! Under PC-BSD and other BSDs it would be:

%cd ~/.kde/share/icons && fetch "http://www.kde-look.org/content/download.php?content=45731&id=1" && tar -xvzf Tango-1.0.tar.gz && rm Tango-1.0.tar.gz && kcmshell icons && cd ~

Note the Tango icon set is not under the GPL, it uses the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license.

And yes, Icon Naming Utilities creates symlinks which makes tarring up an installable package rather difficult which is why i've never posted one at http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=32288

I updated the license, thanks for the note!

After all this method is far more easier to install then compiling these packages by hand. But imho it does not matter that much :) Perhaps the whole compiling is not that hard, but people are scared to do so which is not in favour of these wonderfull icons :P

Its not that it is hard to compile. The problem is the icon-naming-utils needs a much newer version of Imagemagick then most distributions are shipping. So you have to use an unstable branch to be able to do it, or compile Imagemagick by hand.

Meaning Tango is far more trouble than it should be far anyone to use, if your distribution has not made a package for it.

Aaaaargh, double ampersand:

cd ~/.kde/share/icons && wget "http://www.zuurstofcel.nl/Tango-1.0.tar.gz" && tar -xvzf Tango-1.0.tar.gz && rm Tango-1.0.tar.gz && kcmshell icons && cd ~

This one should work...

Finally, the problem is discovered. The Tango build system created a lot of symlinks, which are not respected by KDE's archive-extracting apps. Ark nor the Icons module of Kcontrol respects symlinks proper so it has to be done trough a simple command..

I composed following rule (same as above) which automatically downloads, extracts and launches the icon module to set it all up!!.. NO DOWNLOAD NEEDED!, the script does..

cd ~/.kde/share/icons && wget "http://www.zuurstofcel.nl/Tango-1.0.tar.gz" && tar -xvzf Tango-1.0.tar.gz && rm Tango-1.0.tar.gz && kcmshell icons& && cd ~

That is one slow connection. Could anybody maybe mirror it?

I found out what the problem is. The package was slightly broken, files where missing.. I'm replacing the archive on the server, try the new one in a minute (it's 15MB instead of 7MB).

I just installed it via th kde icon chooser, but none of the icons show, some disapear completely, and the rest show up as the default kde crystal icons. The only tango ones that show are folders.

Are the icons named correctly already? Or do we need name them manually?

The icons are still not working right, even with the 15mb download.

That's strange :S Which version of KDE do you use? Here they all appear.. Perhaps try to extract them directly in ~/.kde/share/icons

Finally someone has packaged up the tango icon theme. I could not do it on mine, as the build scripts for the theme did not like my version of imagemagick and other things.

Thanks :D

You're welcome :)

Well, this was the same thing I was a little annoyed about, so I decided to go trough all the hassle and scripts.. I had to adjust some .sh files to let it use my patched rsvg build, but after all it worked :)
So, now you guys could benefit of it :P

If you think the package could be improved, or when you think it is already cool, just drop a comment :P
