Description:

This is a complete system set for KDE. I have assembled this set from icons by Everaldo, Louie Mantia and an unknown artist here on Deviantart who created the Dossier icon that I used for a template to create all of the filesystems icons. I used Louie Mantia's mimetype icons as a template. Also included in this set are the most beautiful Open Office icons on the planet created by Mike Moschini aka gryphen who kindly granted permission to include them. This is a great example of a true Linux community. This iconset is by the people for the people :-)


The build script depends on 'convert', which is part of ImageMagick.

I created this set because there are no iconsets for KDE to my liking. I hope everyone enjoys this set and I give all credit to the great artists who made most of these icons.

To install this set:
1. download the zip file
2. extraxt the zip file
3. cd into the Glossy_Crystal folder
4. open a terminal there
5. run ./buildset
6. get a beer
7. Install the icon theme in KDE Control Panel
8. Enjoy

Sorry to hear that you're having problems.

It's the same buildset script used in several icon themes.

The only thing that I can figure is the download must have got corrupted.

try dowmloading from the mirror instead.

I have now downloaded this again two times, once from mirror and once from primary download and transfer goes always right but i get same errors everytime. Now i checked those files where i get errors and those size is 0 bytes so there is problem on those packages. Like this theme and apps/package_applications.png

Can you check is your upload right?

Just downloaded, built all four sets...no problems.

Wish I could help but nobody else is having this problem.

It has to be on your end...sorry.

I am sorry to hear this...the problem is that I'm no coding guru.

Please check the pngs when you unzip them...if all of the pngs are there maybe I can figure out if it's a buildscript problem.

Also, I was wondering what Linux Distro you are using?

I will upload the files again, but everything works ok when I download them.

I download the files with Firefox...it is possible that the browser you use can corrupt the download. I have seen that happen many times.

Hope we can figure this out...all I can do is try.

Please try and download at least one of the sets with a different browser...thanks.

I don't get out much, and my OSX use time is basically nill, but that's the best OSX gui clone I've seen!

To reproduce in full?

+ KDE 3.x (Baghira limitation)
+ KXDocker with Tempered Glass background ported from ObjectDock
+ Beryl Emerald - port of Susumu's Eternal. It's on Beryl's site under themes, called "Eternal Fedora". Works good with Ubuntu Human color scheme.
+ Baghira. Use Gimp to turn the kicker background included in the Baghira source upside down. The sidebar looks better if you google baghira and find the baghira tutorial. The Baghira Starter is my little Fedora mod and the Spotlight icon is Kerry Beagle.


What "little Fedora mod"?

Thanks,

Awesome set of icons, congrats really. I will be using them.
Also, I loved your bottom kicker, it has three dimensional feeling to it. Where did you get it?
Thanks.

You have really good graphic taste!
I suppose you like Mac OS X look and feel, so ... why don't you convert all you icons sets for Mac users?

I'm both a Kubuntu and a Mac user, and having coherence between these two platforms would be great!!!

I can tell your icon sets are even better then the original by Apple, and I would be glad to publish and promote your work on my blog!

You can find me at mad4mac.altervista.org

Let me know your opinion


Great Job!

Thanks for the comment.

I only created a small number of these icons and I'm proud of my creations.

The truth is that most of the icons in these sets are by Everaldo, Louie Mantia, Sergio Ruiz, Mike Moschini, and Jonas Rask who graciosly granted me permission to edit and assemble them into these KDE icon themes.

I only claim to be the editor and contributing artist.

If you would like to find something very similar for Mac please look here: http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/

Aquasoft is where I and many others get our inspiration.

Instead of releasing a version with 3 updated icons every day, how about releasing a serious update weekly?

Sorry...I guess I just get too excited sometimes.

I want to give back to the KDE and Linux community...where else could you get such a wonderful OS for free?

hi
I like your upper kicker bar...
do you use baghira?
furthermore what about your...finder?
I use baghira, too, but my upper kicker and finder (konqueror) look different from you

Yes it is Baghira...the trick is to use Gimp to turn the kicker background included in the Baghira source upside down.
The sidebar looks better if you google baghira and find the baghira tutorial.

The Baghira Starter is my little Fedora mod and the Spotlight icon is Kerry Beagle.
