/!\ 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 !!

8 years ago

Fixed now. I was waiting for Free to take into account my appliance for hosting. My university closed my previous account and deleted my personal web-page on their server, because, well, it is not my university anymore.



8 years ago

Hi, I think something went wrong with your archives cause I just download your theme and empathy icons are huge again.




8 years ago

Tell me if it is working for you.



8 years ago

Yeah, the 2.32pre works great for the empathy status icons.
Thanks a lot.
Great theme.




8 years ago

Thanks a lot for letting me now, I'll be updating a pre-version of the new release very soon, and it should fix that.




8 years ago

I've recieved my very first donation !
Thank you very very much, Chua Edward !



8 years ago

Fabulous,looks nice on ubuntu 10.04.




8 years ago

Thanks !




8 years ago

This time, I *really* fixed Empathy. And I added Chromium icon also in Ubuntu.



8 years ago

hey Jean,

empathy refuses to relax with icons issues.. see for yourself - the smile icons, when used in a conversation - are extremely HUGE.. :)

hope you won't get pissed ..

thanks again





8 years ago

I won't get pissed, it's okay, but here, it works fine.
I'm using Empathy 2.28 though, because my laptop broke (audio jack into USB port = MOTHERBOARD DESTROYED !!), and I got a remplacement one because I needed one to write some reports and stuff, but I don't think I'm allowed to upgrade it. I'm stuck with Ubuntu Karmic Koala.
I'll test it with Empathy 2.30 as soon as possible ;).



8 years ago

hey Jean,

as always -- great theme.

there an issue with Empathy icons.. there REALLY big.. Ubuntu Mono default theme, as a comparison, works ok..

other than that, the updated 2.30.2 version isn't available for download.. or at least the version number isn't written there..
My Chrome and Midori icons were updated, yet Chromium wasn't.. (and i noticed you made one in the App folder within the theme..)

in anyhow, great work! keep it up





8 years ago

“as always -- great theme.”
Thanks :⋅D.
If you want, you can consider donating, to refund me for the icon I payed to Mattahan (the radio icon, and the new tab icon).

“there an issue with Empathy icons.. there REALLY big.. Ubuntu Mono default theme, as a comparison, works ok..”
Yep, I've just fixed that. It will be okay in next release.

“other than that, the updated 2.30.2 version isn't available for download.. or at least the version number isn't written there..”
The version number isn't written. That's normal. If you see the Midori icon, then you have 2.30.2.

“My Chrome and Midori icons were updated, yet Chromium wasn't.. (and i noticed you made one in the App folder within the theme..)”
How did you install Chromium ? Can you please check for a chromium.desktop file, which you should open using any text editor, and tell me what is written on the Icon= line ?
chromium.desktop should be in /usr/share/applications

“in anyhow, great work! keep it up”
Thanks :⋅D



8 years ago

i'll do my best.. (no international credit card yet.. :) )

also, i noticed a couple of things for the next version:
1. UbuntuOne 'V' icon (like in the default theme, showing all synced files.. like in DropBox that works out-of-the-box)
2. Chromium icon (i know you made one, but it isn't shown, even on 10.04 RC)
3. Empathy blah blah.. :P
4. Software Center icons for 'Fonts' and 'Themes and Tweaks'





8 years ago

All the Ubuntu-specific stuff (so, I guess basically everything apart from the Empathy stuff, that is fixed by the new version I've just released ;⋅)) will be available only after the release of the final version, because I'm not very keen to install a dangerous beta on my laptop ;⋅).
(Well, maybe I can already fix the UbuntuOne uploaded icon, I'll try to set up an UbuntuOne account to test this ;⋅))



8 years ago

it'll be a whole lot easier to keep track (although it isn't that hard updating :P )





8 years ago

I've already thought about it, but last time I checked, sadly, the licence used by Mattahan was not compatible with the PPA requirements.

It seems they changed that part, but I can't load https://help.launchpad.net/Legal/ProjectLicensing , so I can't be sure...

Beside that, I don't know if PPA can work as repositories for .rpm-based distributions...

However, if Buuf is elligible for a free PPA account, I'll create one for sure ;).




8 years ago

It finally did load.

I'm affraid :
"It must include source code. "Source code" means the preferred form of the work for making modifications. For documentation, it might be XML source files; for images, GIMP XCF files; etc."
might cause us troubles here, but I'm not sure.
However, I think what is really a problem is this part :
"It must not discriminate against persons, groups or against fields of endeavour. The licence of software hosted by Launchpad can not discriminate against anyone or any group of users and cannot restrict users from using the software for a particular field of endeavour - a business for example.", because of the nc (no commercial uses) clause chosen by Mattahan.




8 years ago

Well, I found out :
"(Please note that not all Creative Commons licenses qualify as open source. In particular, their "Sampling/Mashup", "No Derivatives", and **"Non-Commercial"** licenses are not open source. However, just using the "Share-Alike" condition is still open source.)"

I can't afford to pay 250$ every year just for a PPA, I'm not Bill Gates :C.




8 years ago

What a shame ! I wasn't aware that I was, unknowingly and unwillingly of course, spread porn !
Just have a look at the old logout icon, full size :
Do you notice how this guy's manhood is hard and long ?
Oh men, what a shame ! I mean, I have no troubles with people fapping at their computer, but this raise a very very serious issue : this… makes the theme gender-specific !
So, unless someones is willing to pay the money to get good old Paul Davey to make us a logout icon with a girl fingering herself (I wouldn't pay for that, and even if I would, I have plenty of other icons that could be more useful, and I have very few money to buy them :⋅c), so that we could provide a version of the theme for both sex, I'll stick to this version :⋅D.



8 years ago

Yeah! Super! I hope that soon will be added Chrome, Kopete, Tomboy, Xchat. Thnx!



8 years ago

Sorry, some icons I saw only after reboot



8 years ago

Awesome work, I hope that soon will be added a chrome/ium icon too!


3.30 6 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 ?!?

2 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.
