Icon Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net


/! I made a Buuf iconset for Gajim, to go with the GTK theme. You can find it here : http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=103768
I also have one for Pidgin, here : http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=118412

Based on the buuf theme by fana-m (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/buuf+icon+theme?content=44539).

Some icons from Nestort's theme ( http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/BuuF-Deuce-iconset?content=46201 ).

A very few icons come Buuf-Deuce theme by djaany (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/BuuF-Deuce-iconset?content=46201). His theme has been really helpful to get the right icons name !

All icons were made by mattahan (http://mattahan.deviantart.com/), thanks a lot to him for his great work !!

fixed, it was my internet connection. Thanks for the amazing icons!

You're welcome !
I'm using the hosting provided by my ISP. They provide free hosting, I think it is because it makes it easier for them to negotiate more interesting peering deals.
They also provide mirrors for some major Linux distribution, including Ubuntu, so they should have the guts to handle the little bandwidth that this icon theme requires ;).
However, Garry, the maintainer of Ubuntu Satanic Edition, proposed me to host a mirror. If someone else report of any connection problem, that what we'll do.

Thank for your theme :). Please send me your backgroud pickture. Thanks :)

Thank you !
I got my wallpaper from Mattahan.
I also uses these ones (for Grub/Burg and then for GDM) :

It would be nice if you could add two icons missing used by Postler:


Two suggestions for changes:

Undelete looks very confusing. I was almost going to file a bug on Postler thinking the button was broken.

Would you consider using a different icon for Pidgin that looks more like a speech bubble? Nothing against the icon, I love the looks. Just looks a bit misplaced inside my dock.




8 years ago

Well, there are a number of icon I've been eager to find a Buuf version, and gtk-indent is one of them, along with icons such as gtk-justify-fill, gtk-justify-center, gtk-justify-left, gtk-justify-right, gtk-bold, gtk-italic, gtk-strikethrough, gtk-underline, gtk-sort-ascending and gtk-sort-descending.
I'm far from being able to design one from scratch, so any suggestion/help welcome here !

As for the Pidgin icon, it is supposed to be a pigeon, just like on the official icon. I may add a bubble coming out of his beak for the largest version of the icon, but I'm afraid it won't look good.

I've reworked a better gtk-undelete icon and created an internet-mail icon. I'll add them to next release.

Maybe another idea would be the head inside or on top of a bubble?

Damn you are fast! Thanks a lot! Looking forward to try it.

I updated the theme. It's only small change, but I'ld like to get you impression on the icons. And I can't test them in the actual application since I can only use http/https on my connection, the rest is blocked, so no Postler trying for me :(. The postler icon is pretty similar to the Evolution one, but it's not the same color, and I guess there are not many people using both Evolution and Postler on a regular basis, so that shouldn't be too much of a trouble.

>Maybe another idea would be the head inside or on top of a bubble?
I can try it, but it won't look nice at small scales, and even at big scales, I don't think it will work well. The bubbles made by Mattahan are made in a way that would force anything inside or above it to be quite small, and therefore the pigeon head won't be identifiable.
Maybe you should just replace the Pidgin icon with the Empathy, Gajim, Emesene or Gossip icon, whichever you like most.



8 years ago

Just tried it. The mail icon looks very nice. I don't have Evolution, and probably most people use just one app for mail. So works for me.

> replace the Pidgin icon with the Empathy, Gajim, Emesene or Gossip icon

Hard to decide, I like all the bubbles. close call on empathy :-D

I don't see any change with the undelete icon unfortunately, looks the same as before.




8 years ago

I also made a Dexter icon now. Will be included in next release.




8 years ago

I just found a new icon from Mattahan which could work just great as a new Pidgin icon, but I'm still asking myself if I should use it that way, or for a Twitter client. What do you think ?




8 years ago

Damn !
Well, it seems Postler is not using gtk-undelete. Do you at least see the new icon in Firefox (right-click on a tab, next to the Reopen close tab entry) ?

I think I have an idea, by looking at the code :
Could you please check it for me ? I can't upload today or tomorrow, but you just have to go to ~/.icons/buuf2.32/miscellaneous/128x128/actions , and make a copy of gtk-undelete called stock_undelete, and then, go to ~/.icons/buuf2.32/miscellaneous/128x128/stock/generic, and remove the previous stock_undelete that was there.
I really think this should work.



8 years ago

This is a fantastic icon set - I don't know if you're taking requests but I'm going to put some forward.


No worries if you can't be bothered - these icons are great as they are anyway.




8 years ago

Done. Could you please test it and check it is working ?



8 years ago

Works like a dream - thank you so much.




8 years ago

You're welcome !




8 years ago

Of course I do take requests !
I should update a new version adding those icons tomorrow.

Create icons for Debian (iceweasel, logo etc).

Unfortunately, similar "Buuf" I am not able to do...



8 years ago

I ask if yours icons are retrocompatiblility like usin 2.30.2 in gnome2.20.0?)?
and futurecoplatibility (like using 2.30.2 icon in gnome3)??

and you can upload only the .deb (por people than not want added the satanic-repositories, like I)

is possible??




8 years ago

Retro-compatibility should work fine to a certain extent (Gnome 2.20 is OLD, nobody uses it anymore I guess), but futuro-compatibility… do you want me to read the future ?

I will upload the .deb for next version. It used to be included, but I had some troubles with my previous hosting…



8 years ago


As I already sent you message yesterday, I want to fix Chrome bug you filed before as here

So, could you reply back to me?

Now I got a connection at home, and I'm working on it ;).

3.32 1 month ago

Again, mostly keeping up to date with new icon name change from Gnome 3.32

3.30 8 months ago

Buuf is back!!!
Various stuff, mostly to keep up with Gnome's new convention to name program icons as org.gnome.Name.png .

3.22 2 years ago

Updated for Gnome 3.22, and added a few things for Budgie, which actually benefited some other setups of Gnome just as well. For instance, if you added the Minimize button and Maximize/Restore button on the window decorations, it should now be properly themed like the Close button was already.
Also I can't find how to add a link rather than host the file one Gnome-Look ?!?

3 years ago

3.20.0 :
Fixing icon names to match new Gnome convention.
Added an icon for Polari.
Likely a whole bunch of stuff I forgotten about. Let me know in the comments!

3.10.0 :
Fixed the lack of speaker icon next to the volume slider.
Added a grid (for showing programs in Gnome-Shell and for Nautilus views) and a list (for Nautilus views), but I'm not very happy with how they turned out. How do you feel about them ?
Added icons for Gnome-Music, Gnome-Maps and Gnome-Tweak-Tool.

3.8.0 :
Added new icons for the new version of Gnome, mainly for the new settings and the new applications.
Added an application icon for Clementine.
Added complete support of Gtranslator :P.
I'm in desperate need for a headphone icon, now !

3.6.0 :
Added a few icons for the Gnome control center, and a bunch of new Ubuntu-specific icons.
Added a Quodlibet and a Exfalso icon

3.2.0 :
Added support for some icons new to Gnome 3.2, like online account (goa-panel), or removable media (drive-removable-media). And some icons from Nestort's theme, for instance for some games. And some stuff. Nobody cares about what I write in the changelog anyway.

3.0.0 :
I had the good surprise to see that Gnome 3 asked for very few change to the icon set. Basically, there was one new icon for the timezone setting. Gnome 3 also uses "symbolic icons", meaning monochrome, usually very simplified icons. I provide one version of the theme which identifies the symbolic icon with the corresponding normal one, bringing buuf colorful icons into the Gnome-Shell upper panel, and another one which do not provide symbolic icons, for people who wants to keep the clean white icons there.

2.32.4 :
Added support for lpi (Launchpad integration), Evolution-Rss, and a few application icons (including firefox-4.0).
Also fixed an issue with status icon size on old versions of Empathy.

2.32.3 :
Added a dexter icon. Fixed a bug with Gajim notifications.

2.32.2 :
Fixed a bug with emote icon size in Evolution when writing html message.

2.32.1 :
Added icon for Spotify, Dropbox, Audacity, Openshot and Postler. Reworked the Undelete icon.

2.32.0 :
The organization into folders changed completely.
Added icons for F-spot, for Ubuntu Messenging Menu and Me-Menu (cause they changed the icon name required for Me-menu status).
And a whole bunch of other stuff that I don't remember yet, I'll complete later... maybe.

2.30.3 :
Fixed a bug that made Empathy status icon in the contact list unnaturally HUGE.

2.30.2 :
New tab icon.
Icon for Chrome, Chromium and Midori.

2.30.1 :
Change of the logout and change user icon.

2.30.0 :
New icons for Rhythmbox and Banshee
Docky icon
Addition icon for GPM and encrypted network for NetworkManager
[edit]I forgot to update the download url. Sorry, guys. Should work now. If you see 2.28.2 in the name of the theme, then just download and install the new version.[/edit]

2.28.2 :
More nm-applet support (wifi strength, and connection animations).
One more icon for eog (slideshow-play)
gnote, gksu and lshw-gtk app icons.

2.28.1 :
Brasero is now completely supported.
Better Synaptic support.
Fixed Audacious 2.
And some other stuff I don't remember.

2.28.0 :
Now uses version number that matches the Gnome version for which the theme is developed ;â‹…).
Fixed some battery and bluetooth icon issues in Gnome 2.28.
Fixed fast-user-switch-applet
Added some apps icons.
Added some icons for the Ubuntu-specific notification system (though I hate it \o/).

1.7 :
New app icon : Stardict.
Some more mimetypes icons for Office (OOo and MSO) files.
The gtk-index icon from the GTK stock iconset.
No more useless icons.
Main new feature is still the .deb and the «themer» versions.
The themer version comes with all the stuff useless to a simple user, but which might be helpful for anyone wishing to modify the theme ...

1.06.3 :
New apps icons, including Nautilus (!). Partial support of Compiz-Config (ccsm).
I finally found how to replace that ####ing info icon !
Conduit full support (I hope). [edit]I've now fixed the stupid «Main program's icon missing» problem :·D.[/edit]
And certainly some other stuff I don't remember...

1.06.2 :
New status icon for Empathy are now also used by the fast-user-switch applet.
I don't know if I should keep it, because Pidgin don't want to use any other status icon than his very own !
Added icon for brightness stuff.
Added some apps icon.

1.06.1 :
Added full Empathy support. Give it a try !

1.06 :
Added Listen support, and a few other changes.
A LOT of cleanup, so their might be some regression on the older version of Gnome. Please tell if you find any !

1.04.3 :
Fixed Gnumeric icon and animations.

1.04.2 :
Added a few apps icons.

1.04.1 :
Added an icon for Skype, and fixed the History, Bookmarks and Lock icons for Epiphany.
And I guess some other stuff I don't remember...

1.04 :
Now compatible with Gnome 2.24.1 ! There are some changes in the icon that the theme use, a few improvement (especially the Edit icon with that Pen-on-paper icon ....), and I hope no regression, but I can't swear ...

1.03.9 :
Added some icons for the « computer:/// » nautilus special adress.
Changed Bluefish icon.

1.03.8 :
Added some real Rhythmbox support. I also noticed I forgot to include the mimetypes I should have in 1.03.6, so now, at last !, this presentation icon in Evince should work !

1.03.7 :
Added generic mimetypes, and a Add/remove software icon.

1.03.6 :
More mimetypes (BTW, Evince use one of these icons for the presentation button, it gave me a serious headache, and I consider filling a bug report about it), and power-manager applet icons.

1.03.5 :
Added some applications, one mimetype (lyx files), and some actions.

1.03.4 :
Reverted some change in index.theme, to look more like 1.03.2, since I did not expect a change in the folder's order to have such a big impact.

1.03.3 :
Minor change in icons, index.theme updated, last one did not include 128x128/status !

1.03.2 :
Added places/user-home.png

1.03.1 :
Fixed broken link by replacing absolute link by relative ones.
