Description:

Here's my first linux iconset !

Designed from scratch, it was entirely made with inkscape and is thus 100% vector graphics.

It may actually still lack many icons and I hope you'll tell me which ones you'd like me to create.

It currently depends on Gnome and Tango.

This is such a simple theme, but it is brilliant because of that fact.

I'm looking forward to seeing the following icons added one day. Fingers crossed for an update to this great theme!

For Panel:

- Volume Control icon
- Network Monitor icon

For Gnome Menu:

- Wine icon (as stated by neophytezer0)
- Search for Files icon
- Recent Documents icon
- Frostwire icon

I found a computer icon in the devices folder, but it doesn't load. Is it a bug?

Report

Well... I don't know what to say... Quite strange indeed !

Where did you install the theme ? In home/user/.icons/ or in /usr/share/icons/ ?

I know it shouldn't make a difference but I really can't see why it's not working for you.

I'm still looking though. Anybody having the same problem ?

I think I'll soon add a few emblems as they're (to me) the best way to customize each folder according to what you want them to be (e.g: download folder, image folder...)

icons for the archives like .deb .zip .rar .tar.gz will be great!!

sorry, didn't notice "my computer" already had an icon, but the thing is it doesn't change, it shows the icon image at /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/devices/gnome-fs-client.svg
why doesn't it change (it does with other themes)

This is one of the best themes I've seen in a long time, good work.

And I would really like an Opera icon (and nautilus...)

I'm trying to fix this but I don't understand why it wouldn't work. I'll try to check file permission or add another symlink. I'll keep you informed !

Ok ! Opera is on the way. What do you mean 'nautilus' ? I never seen it as an icon in the apps section ?

Report

I, like many others, use Awn and when you open a nautilus browser window you get an icon for it(right now there's a file cabinet).
I don't know what the icon is called, maybe fs-browser or nautilus-browser...
Anyway, if you cant find the name, it would still be nice with an icon to set as "custom icon"

I'm looking forward to that opera icon ^^

greta job, dude!
but stills misses some apps, like openoffice, synaptic, liferea, equipment (is it "equipment"? i odn't know the name in english, but what would come to be "My PC"), and others, but until now, it's an awesome work.

First, thank you ! Fair enough, liferea and openoffice.org are popular enough to be included in the next shipment !

What about the 'My PC' icon ? I'm afraid I can't see what you mean... You most definitely don't mean 'my computer' as it is already included...

Do you use gnome ? KDE ? Xfc ?
