Description:

This iconset won't ever have a massive modification.
All the work I am doing on it right now is just trying to push it to perfection, making small changes release after release [you can see what's happening in the changelog below], so please feel free to report any bug you experience, but first of all ensure you've read the instructions file ;)

Now.. the description can begin...



At first I collaborated with crhispy, releasing different coloured versions of his worderful port "Oxygen-Refit".
Now I decided to create a fork of his porting, integrating some icons I caught around the web, and some others I edited/created by myself.

Please feel free to report and bug within the comments.

A great big thank for you all.

UPDATE

Archlinux users can install this iconset from the AUR repository, just typing:

yaourt -S hydroxygen-iconset

Hydroxygen are also have been included within the GNU/Linux Paldo official repos.
Many thanks to kim88.

First, I wish to congratulate DeviantDark for this remarkable icon set. It is from far the one I prefer among all the others. One thing puzzles me, though. When I installed it on my laptop (Ubuntu 8.04 GNOME) the green folders were chosen by default. On my desktop (same OS) it chose the brown ones. How can I chose myself the ones I like the most? I haven't found a way if not by changing them one by one via the .icons folder of my /home. Is there any better and faster way to do that?

Thank you.

Try looking into the iconset folder. There is a quite explaining jpg and README file ;)

Thanks! It works perfectly. I should've noticed that README text in the first place. (Oops!)

Many regards,

I have a question, is there any possibility of adding an option to change the home folder icon? Maybe along the lines of just rendering the house on top of your current folder icon?

Anyway, keep up the good work and thank you for sharing! Your icon set fits with my desktop perfectly! :o)

I mean a set of ıcon that works on OpenOffıce; so that the “Save” ıcon ıs the same ın OpenOffıce and gedıt. But the way the ıcon for OOo are stored are dıfferent, so ıt needs to be made.

When I select the hydroxygen icons (which is one of the best set i've ever seen), nautilus loads very slow the first time after booting pc. It takes 3-4 seconds. After that nautilus respons fast as normal. When I select other iconsets this doesn't happen. So I assume this is because the hydroxygen set is too big in megabytes so it doesn't load fast?

BTW I have a fast pc with fast hardware so that's not the problem.

Nevermind, it was because I installed it in /usr/share/icons. When I install it in ~/.icons it loads faster:)

I see in the sceenshot that there are several different colors of folders here. How do I use those folders instead of the orange that's there by default, or is it not possible?

Also, on a note, in the above post, a CFL lightbulb is the curly energy efficient lightbulb, here's a picture:

It seems that you are a new user of this great iconset.

Once you have downloaded the archive hydroxygen_iconset.tar.bz2, extract it wherever you want and enter to the extracted folder called hydroxygen. Inside the hydroxygen folder theres a text file called customizing-instructions and an image called customize!!!.jpg give a look at those files... ready???... OK...

Also, note that in the same folder exists an executable script called change-type.sh. This script makes all the customization work... for example if you want blue folders all you need to do is:
1) Open a terminal.
2) Go to the extracted hydroxygen folder.
3) Write in the terminal ./change-type.sh bluefolder

And that's all... Mmm... Why bluefolder? check one more time the image customize!!!.jpg... it shows all the customization options you can use with the change-type.sh script to create the iconset as you like...

By the way... do all the modifications before install the iconset... and for install it... copy the hydroxygen folder to ~/.icons or /usr/share/icons.

I hope this can help you...

He means compact fluourescent bulbs.

If you decide to add them, PLEASE leave incandescent bulbs as an option, don't remove them. I would really hate to have CFL icons, no matter how trendy CFLs may be.
