Description:

This is an icon theme based on my other theme "nuoveXT" and "Windows Vista".

It is strongly recommended to have NuoveXT (1.5) installed to use this theme, simply because it inherits it (all mimetypes for instance).

For those who is wondering:
Metacity: Blendish (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=27002)
GTK: Clearlooks-Etiquette from the Big pack (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=25557)
Wallpaper: breathe easy (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/22134277/)
Icons: ;-)

Constructive feedbacks are, of course, welcome ;-) Hope you'll like it. Saki

Great looking icon pack.
I have one comment: mimetype for samba share,inherited from nuoveXT, doesn't fit into general looking of this theme.

Keep up the good work!

The icons are nice but no were near as nice as the nnoveXT. I would have loved if you put this effort into completing the nuove openoffice icons and evolution icons. Over all this icon pack is nice a little fuzzy tho. Great job

Great icon set.

you have done a very good job giving to gnome a "modern" look.

Too much people were tired of "Kristal" and gnome default icons. and NuoveXT and this icon set solves the problem :).

i have some suggestions.

i am agree with gauravnawani, i use clearlooks-default and some icons look blurry.

for example i have copy/cut/paste on my nautilus toolbar ( browser mode ) and they are very hard to disntict even at 800x600 :S. you can also check it out by opening Gedit.

cheers!

I was not aware about them being Vista style or some thing like that, but they are nice icons.

I hope that you will add a little black outline to them all they look kinda blurry when viewed at 1280x1024. Esp the smaller icons like in toolbars etc.

Saying it more appropriately they are not very disntictive from light coloured themes like clearlooks clarity for example.

See the Gperfection set for the crispnes value.

Is this some sleezy Vista promotion?

I will not touch these icons even with a 20ft barge pole.

That's right! And I'm getting a dime from Micro$oft for every single downloads ;-) Seriously, I'm sorry you didn't liked it. But I'm sure others will...

I love the Icon set but don't like the icons for the CDs much. Why don't you make use of my CD Icons? My Icon set is Complexity. I provide the SVG source so it is just a matter downloading the icon set.

All the icons in my set are in the public domain.

Ick, the gaim icon is just awful and blurry as hell. Let's stop going for a Windows look and continue the fantastic Nuove-XT icons!

There is no gaim icon in this set. The icon you are referring to is probably one from the "fantastic Nuove-XT" theme ;-)

Well when I'm using Nuove-XT, the gaim icon is a nice silver, when I switch to Vista it changes to a blurred yellow one. It must be inheriting it from the Gnome icon set, because that one looks the same, instead of Nuove. My apologies.

One of the most nice icon set I have ever seen, however I do not like the hard disk icon.

The svg icons looks bad on the cairo backend of gtk 2.8 also??

If they look bad there, then this is bad news.

Also you think you could share your svg source, i may give you a hand with some icons.

Quite a few of the icons used in this set can be found in the Openclipart.org website along with their svg source.

Yes, svg looks bad in gtk2.8 and cairo. From what little I have read, they've really just begun svg support, but as bad as it is and as little as cairo does , and is intented to do, it won't fix the problem.

Could you add a link to the SVG version for those of use who like scaleable icons? :)

I really like what you're going for here. I like the folder icon a lot, but the audio, harddrive, home, internet, and trash icons all look pretty lacking. I think it would look good to have the internet icon look like a realistic picture of the Earth, and the same with the harddrive icon. It'd be cool if you made the trashcan icon look like one of those wire trash cans. I actually have one, so I took a picture of it that you can view here:http://yakko.cs.wmich.edu/~cdgore/images/photos/trash.jpg Sorry, I just left the trash in it, but I couldn't find a place in which to empty it.
