Hi everyone

I made this theme for my own use and thought someone would like to use it, too.

My main motivation was that I disliked those themes that made it difficult to determine what kind of document were represented by the icons. Sometimes, the icons for documents and for applications were the same, which was confusing. So I made my own document icons, placing the application icon on a blank-page-icon, to make it clear that it was a link to a document.

I really hate Windows, but those transparent folders are cool, so I took them and prepared some folder icons that fit our Linux needs.

Please, keep in mind that I made this just for fun, not professionally. I built my icon theme on the LaGaDesk theme, so you will still find many of the dark icons that are characteristic of that theme.

I think I will keep working on this theme during the summer (in the southern hemisphere), and I'll be happy to read your comments in order to make a better job.

For the moment, it's available for Ubuntu only, but I can make versions with other distribution logos if you like.

Enjoy

Thankyou! =)

Very nice and useful, i found some icons missing, but how you said that will be working on this, i'm waiting for new updates.

And now a suggestion:
what i could fell here (on my system), is that there are some video and audio files with description on icon and others no. Files like .avi, .mp3 have it wrote on icon, otherwise files with .mkv, .ogg per example doesn't have.
I don't know your view, but i think that audio files can have only one icon type, (without extension description on icon, are all audio anyway :D ) and so for video files. I think is more easy than specify each multimedia file format. Or else, please add missing formats icons (mp4, ogm, mkv, ogg, wv are extensions without own icons).

Sorry the BIG text.
Thanks and cheers! o/

Hello, lyceuhns. Muito obrigado for your kind comments. (My Portuguese is horrible!)

Yes, some icons are missing. I'll try to fix that, but I'm very limited because I'm not a programmer and I depend on the work others have done before, so if there's no specific icon in the theme that I'm using as a base, I don't know how to add new icons to the theme. :(

Concerning the descriptions written on the icons, I thought it would be useful, because sometimes you need to know what kind of file you are dealing with. But I guess some people prefer the icons without a description, so I think I could make a "no description" icon set. But that will have to wait because I'm gonna be really busy until the end of January. Anyway, I see that people keep downloading my icons, so I'm gonna take some time to update them by the end of January.

Thanks again, and congratulations on living in such a wonderful country. I was in Rio some years ago, and it was absolutely fascinating. People are sooo kind and welcoming. I wish everyone was like that here in Chile, but we have no "turist culture".

Chao!

E eu que não tenho noção de espanhol, mesmo estando na América Latina. =(

Well, and about the icons, don't worry, as i said it's useful already. Sure that updates are welcome, but do what you can do, i can't help more than report little things like this, because i'm not a programmer too.

And about the descriptioins, i like it too, and think it's useful, but always the people forgets some formats, it's not their fault (there're millions of formats out there), but in the most times, they don't care about, unfortunately. =|

And thanks for the comments, i really like here too, don't have money now, but i want to travel in america, and walk on Andes and so... :D
Ah, dreams and dreams...

See ya.

Good icon theme. I will create an RPM package for openSUSE 11.2. That contains your iconset. I'd like an openSUSE logo for my package.
