Description:

Betelgeuse is the name for a big star from Orion constellation. The intention of this project is to create a complete, modern, clean and eye-candy icon theme for the KDE Desktop Environment.

Here aren't all but the more decent icons (I guess). There's a lot of work to do and I dont' have time. If you want to help or make a donation, please leave me a note, start by doing a branch for my git repo or send me a mail.

Or just share your suggestions! Hope you like it and excuse me for my bad english.

INSTALL

You can download the zip file and extract it under ~/.kde4/share/icons/, or clone the git repo doing:

git clone git://gitorious.org/betelgeuse/betelgeuse-sources.git
cd betelgeuse-sources
sh ./build.sh

CONTRIBUTE

There's a lot of work to do. You will notice, for example, there's no icons for 16x16, 22x22 or 24x24, so there's a fake raster to fill them with bigger icons. Feel free to contribute to developing it! You can do it at some ways:

1. Creating and editing icons. If you think you've skills at icon designing and you know what Inkscape is (Thanks Karbon, your boolean operations with paths is a pain in the ass) you could help with it. You can clone the git repo at

git://gitorious.org/betelgeuse/betelgeuse-sources.git

and starting designing icons or make the changes you think they need.

Please DON'T make/edit and publish any icon as a standalone work. I will give credits for all people that help with it, the idea is to keep this project unified as much as we can.

Please DON'T use any SVG filters, masks, blur and crap like that. It makes them uncompatible with QtSVG. Please follow as much as you can the style of icons.

2. Donating money. I'm just a poor graphic design student, seriously. I'm not receiving any cent, neither for this work. I even don't have any bank account so anybody could donate money via paypal. If somebody know how people can make donations so them can come here to Bogota (Colombia) please tell me. And a tablet would be very appreciated: Drawing with a creepy mouse is too hard. Or if you have a better computer and want to donate it... But even any buck would be very appreciated.

3. If you know about shell scripting, you can help by fixing the build.sh file. I don't know too much about that and it could get better.

4. Reporting issues, broken links and so on.

5. Telling me your suggestions, ideas, complainments, insults and so on. Feedback is very appreciated.

Great work!

Did you get it sorted, how you can get donations?

I don't know if that'd help, but have you looked at BitCoin?

... I do hope you continue to work on it. It is splendid already, but if you have time (and will) please provide a square icon for Kile/ Showfoto/ Darktable.

Thanks a ton already.

I will totally add icons for Kile and Showfoto (and Digikam, of course) but Darktable gets out of my purposes, 'cause it's not even a Qt app.

This theme is hands down the best icon theme out there. My only complaint is you didn't make a nepomuk icon or the cashew icon.

Don't worry, I really think I miss them. I will make some for plasma/akonadi too.

Actually I've been stuck with university. No christmas, no presents at all. I was finishing some stuff about it to upload but I won't have time until 2 weeks. You could help if you could send me a pen tablet! (I'm serious, with a old and creepy mouse is hard to draw).

Is there any way the icons shown in this preview are done? I'd love icons for kde system stuff and the ones in the picture look great.

I'll see if i can find the money to donate, your icons look worth it.

I've redesigned all, because blur in SVG (Faenza icons contain many crap). There's already folders (as you could see), terminal, dolphin, help, calculator, start icons (for many distros, maybe they don't look so cool), ark, kget, kwalletmanager, rekonq, trash, kmail, akregator, k3b, okular, some categories and some devices. I promisse you they look better and nicer. If not, ask me for your money back.
