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.

Could please add an icon for sunbird, a calendar/time-management application from the mozilla developers (and in the same style).

If you want to be artitstic, an icon in the firefox03/thunderbird02 style would be really awesome.

Thanks a lot in advance

Awesome iconset! I like it a lot....but it seems to be too heavy for my laptop :( It takes nearly 10sec for nautilus to open at first after startup with this iconset. With Human it's nearly immediate. Is there anything I can do to have those icon load faster?

I guess it's because the iconset is in fixed-sided PNGs, while human is mostly SVG.
I guess there's nothing to to.. sorry :(

I liked the new volume and network icons better - especially the volume icon that shows up when I press my volume controls. And the link to the old icon versions doesn't work for me!

My only complaint is that the icons are blurry when smaller. I use a customized version of the oxy-gnome icon set (I just changed the folder icons) and it looks a ton better at smaller sizes. I think it's because it uses svg. Though, I'm not certain. Any thoughts?

SVG icons and PNG icons render just about the same when scaled down to small sizes.

The reason icons look blurry at small sizes is that they are created at larger sizes. For an icon to look good small, you have to draw it from scratch at the intended size. Perhaps the folder icons you're using now have simpler shapes and details so they don't scale down as badly.

perfectska04 has right. You need for every size the correct SVG, than the result will be perfectly sharp etc. Here is a example from what I am meaning:
https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Artwork/BreatheIconSet/Icons
So DeviantDark is right too with "3 or 4 lives" ;)
Scaling PNG from large size to small sizes needs retouch by hand if you want to do it sharper. But this needs experience and a good hand ;) But the Icons here are sharp enough with a light AntiAliasing. It's very lighty smooth so I would let them this kind ;)

You're simply right.
SVG are seriously better in minor sizes.
But I cannot convert ALL the icons of hydroxygen in SVG. Too much work.. it could take me about 3 or 4 lives :P

Thanks for your awesome icon collection!

I used oxygen-refit before, but this is even better.

Unfortunately this icon set has some bugs:
As you can see in the following 4 pictures, some icons don't change their color so that they match the folder's color, as it's done in oxygen-refit. The color of my folders is orange, but the icons in the pictures are blue.

Pictures: http://www.box.net/shared/ucti88f3sd

Hoping for a soon solution.

The script inctructions to change the folders' icons don't affect those icons you placed within the screenshots.
I am sorry... and I can't add them to the changing ones, that would take me too much time to do it.

Thanks for your feedback, BTW.

Thx for replying.

That's a pity! So how did you managed to change the color in the oxygen-refit set then?

Could you please make and icon for gpodder? The default doesn't really go with your great theme. Much obliged.

Do you have some replacement icon to suggest?

Report

Since it's an RSS feeder/podcast video downloader maybe something along the lines of your gwget or gnomad2 icons would be appropriate.

Alright.
I'll include a gpodder icon similar to the gnomad one.
In the next update...
