While I like most of the theme, the huge gnome foot on the folder icons kinda ruins it for me. :/

All who speak with enthusiasm about the subject simply did not see Ardis. Here, all the icons a bit unclear. They made as it is uncertain. Sometimes svg file, there is a huge trailer, the picture from another website, etc.
If GTK3 these icons can someone seem more personal, they look downright rude in MATE.

Certainly it is necessary to respect the work of the author, but to say that this is the best theme in flat-style with shadows - no way.
 
It is better to hammer in search Ardis and you'll see how you like real professional icons in this flat style.

P.S. If anyone really need the shadow turn left, then I can expand a shadow Ardis in one day on the left. Cut the white frame and export the entire theme png, to make it work on older machines and qt.

wow, it takes a huge load of narcissism to think that his own theme is better in any way...

Ardis is not my themes. Ardis created by KotusWorks. Why do not I believe the best shadow theme? Look at this screenshot:

The MATE shadow does not look very good. In an open Inkscape you can see the trailer in svg. Good idea, but the execution is uncertain.

ugly, the theme misses tiny sizes so every icon other than 256x256 px will become blurry as hell

There's no need to be rude, if you don't like it don't download it. Personally, I like these icons and there's no rule about who must need or not need each style of icon

The icons look a lot different from what you show in the screenshot. In the screenshot they are round - but in dolphin the shadow and sometimes other parts reach out of the circle - is that intended or did the masking go wrong?

Hi, dolphin and any Qt based app will have that problem. I am sorry. I will try to fix it, but fingers crossed.

Very nice addition! Thank you!

However I insist on the other issue. Sometimes the icons are not exactly rounded, they look "pixelated" in the circumference

I think it was lost in the description of the set but the squared places icons (files) for those who prefer those (like me) are still there. Just delete the default "places" (round places) folder in scalable and rename "square-places" to "places". The others are simply soft links.

I think they need some kind of...antialiasing or something. The contour looks a bit rough sometimes. Nice theme keep it up!

Hi,
Thanks for your comment. May I request you a screenshot of what's going wrong, i.e. rough contour?
Also, if you have a github account, may you take some time to post the issue there? It's easier to handle.
Thanks for your time.
