Description:

A cool, simple and minimalist icon theme. This icon theme is based on the free and open source Lazer icons (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lazer?content=103143). The aim is to eventually match and replace all of the icons in the Gnome icon theme. Any help would be much appreciated.

This is my first attempt at an icon theme and has been steadily growing into a full blown set of icons. All of the icons are created using the fantastic Inkscape. Any feedback or comments are welcome. Enjoy!

*******************

ICE has had a BIG update with loads of new icons - see the changelog below and second screenshot on the left.

*******************
Have you seen the ICE metacity theme?
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ICE?content=87898
*********************

This theme works best when the Clearlooks OSX theme is also installed.

*********************

---------------------------------
To install, download the file to desktop. Right click on desktop and select 'Change desktop background' then click on the 'Theme' tab and drag the downloaded file into this window.

Note - To use other icon themes too, press 'Ctrl' and 'h' to show hidden folders and open the .icons folder. In here there should be a folder called 'ice'. Inside this folder there should be a file called index.theme (it might not work by just double clicking on it - try opening text editor first and opening the file from within the text editor program). In this file there is a line near the top that reads like this:
Inherits=ClearlooksOSX

Just add whichever themes you want it to use after ICE in there.

v3.1 (19/04/09) - Added some new app icons for language preferences, nautilus CD burner, network tools, reboot notifier, gparted and bluetooth. Added 2 new device icons - SD card and webcam. Lots of other icons were updated and touched up.

v3.0 (14/04/09) - A big update! Only using scalable artwork to make the theme more manageable. Loads of new icons and lots of redesigned icons. New icons include: media icons (play,pause,rewind etc), mail icons (new message, reply, forward etc), devices (mouse, joypad, ipod etc), text formatting (center, select-all, bold etc), new wifi and battery status icons. There is also a new Ubuntu logo that is more 'icy'.

v2.1 (28/08.08) - initial release with folders. New icons for gtk-edit, volume control icons, desktop icon, new search icon. New bookmark icon for the Places menu....and a new icy Ubuntu logo (sorry to any non-ubuntu users). This is a test release with lots more work needed to be done on the folder icons.

v2.0 (10/8/08) - edit-clear, gtk-edit icons added to actions, scalable icons tweaked to scale better, zoom-best icon now working, new dialog icons (error, information, question, warning, password), new session icons (logout, lockscreen, hibernate, switch-user, suspend, restart, shutdown)

This is a very nice icon set, especially with the T3K GTK theme. I just wish it were more complete. Any plans on making it more complete (especially with respect to Ubuntu's default apps!) in the near future?

I don't submit much, usually only openbox. Anyways here is what I do when fixing other's icon issues: open up Tango and find all the similar arrows or whatnot and make sure the broken them has them all with the same names. Works for scalable or png. Another thing I noticed is the "Open Side Panel" icon is "lit" always if panel view is enabled. This is very ugly in a dark theme like Murrina Dark Waters (which the icon set fits well too, other than for that effect). I use pcmanfm for my file manager, it causes one ugly effect of a blue blur box on that icon.

NO rush man, take your time, just pointing out things I find to help you improve theme in future updates.

Thanks for the help. I use the Gnome icon theme to get the names right, but the 'okay' button doesn't have a scalable version, only normal png icons. This seems a bit like a bug to me. The naming conventions always change as well, so I'm going to wait until the new version of Ubuntu comes out next week then try and get it to work.

I don't quite understand your second problem - what is the actual name of the icon and what do you mean by 'lit'? Send me a personal message or email if it's easier and I'll try and sort it out.

cheers again,

The icon issue:

With side pane turned off:

[url=http://omploader.org/vMWpwaw][img]http://omploader.org/tMWpwaw[/img][/url]

I don't know how this will display in other file managers like Nautilus when using a dark theme like MurrinaDarkWaters, but I suspect any GTK that has that icon will have similar issues. Basically this icon should appear the same when active as it does when inactive, and only the pressed state should change.

Disregard this entire string I created, I have just discovered this issue is only present with that one GTK theme. Sorry to have strung this out. :(

I thought it might be a gtk theme issue as I couldn't recreate it. No worries though.

... I'd still like to get the 'okay' button working though.

Ugly arse green check mark is inherited, either you missed naming an icon or you forgot it. Either way, not good.

Overall great, great theme. You should see my MurrineChrome+Personal Openbox Ice theme+your icons. nICE!

I can't seem to find how the naming works for this. It doesn't seem to work with scalable icons at the moment - I'm trying to get this sorted as it really annoys me too!

Thanks for the praise though ... on my way to check out your themes now.

I like your icons, they look really good. In fact I would like to use some of them in my own icon-set, so I tough I I'd check with you if it's all right.

Note that my icon-set is licensed under GPL. Is that a problem since you have another license? Wikipedia said that MIT was GPL compatible but I don't know if that means I can publish your work under GPL.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm thrilled that you'd want to use some of them in your icon theme - feel free to do so, and modify anything that you need to.

I'm not a licensing expert, but I'm pretty sure MIT means you can use it in any of your own projects. Anyway, take this as my permission granted.

It would be nice to see your updated icons.

cheers,

I was modding a flat theme to make it dark blue. And was searching for a compatible icon theme. But I did not expect something perfect like this :-)

Thanks for the kind feedback. I'm glad the ICE theme fits into what you want. Hopefully with the new icons, it fits even better - let me know if there are any other icons in particular that you want to see.

Great theme, especially with some black GTK theme. :)
Under OpenSUSE 11 in the menu, the log-out button is huge, how can I change this to the regular size?

Sorry for the delay in replying.

All the icons should now be scalable. Is this still a problem?

I like your icons, but I like too your theme (3rd screenshot). What is it? Where can I get that theme?

Hi Katie,

The theme is an emerald theme that I made called Cloud 9, you can get it here:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Cloud+9?content=83590

That page also has the gtk settings and the colours used.

Hope that helps,

I found out I have the Glossy theme. I've changed the settings and it seems that it works. I am not sure though whether I've change the correct lines or colors (I've changed only some of the colors in the very first line of the codes there). I'm a newbie indeed! Pls tell me which lines in the gtkrc file I'm going to change using the colors you've provided...

Hi Katie,

You just need to right-click on the desktop, select 'change desktop background', then select the 'theme' tab and click on the 'customise' button at the bottom. Now click on the 'controls' tab and select 'Glossy', then click on the 'Colours' tab and choose the colours listed on the Cloud 9 page. Then click on the 'icons' tab and select ICE.

The only other thing you would need to do is to install the Cloud 9 emerald theme - have you got Emerald on your machine?

Hope that helps, let me know how you get on.

Unfortunately in the Colors tab it says "The current controls theme does not support color schemes". I have other themes which I can customise the colors thru this tab, but this one (Glossy) everything is disabled in the Colors tab. What will I do then? BTW I'm using Ubuntu Hardy...

Hi Katie, that's really weird because I'm running Hardy too and I can edit the colour schemes for Glossy. I'm not sure it's that important to use Glossy, try some of the other themes for controls and try to edit the colours so they are the same as the ones mentioned on the cloud 9 page.

Just one other thing - the folder icon in the screenshot won't appear in this theme - it is from an icon theme called Vista Inspirate (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Vista-Inspirate?content=28352).

Hope that helps, keep asking if you need any more help,
