This is one of the best KDE icon themes I ever saw.
Hammergom is the author: all thanks go to him.

I made absolutely nothing except trying to port this to Gnome.
I hope I made no license infringment by uploading this: if it's so I'm sorry, notify me and I will delete the submission.

It's not perfect: still needs some polishing here and there...

Please vote if you like :)

Well, I'm getting desperated.
I'm trying to install this Theme for around 2 to 3 hours but it won't work.

I tried to Drag & Drop it, Rename it, Unpack and Repack it... but it seems like I'm not able to use this Theme. And every hint I find tells the same thing. Either I don't find the rights words for my problem or Google just find the wrong Topics.

I already start thinking that I can't use it anyway. =/ Are there any spcial requirements?

I would be really pleased with your advices.

Try this:
Upen the tarball with an archive manager and extract the folder inside in

/home/yourname/.icons

Then you should be able to access the icon theme from your Gnome Control Center.

Don't know, the screenshot is not mine.
I'll make a screenshot of my own desktop as soon as I'll submit a more refined version of the icon theme: for now the shot is just intended to give the idea of what the theme is like.

Anyway, Sun's Looking Glass is a desktop environment, not just an application: the desktop shown here is KDE, so it can't be LG.
That's just a customized dock (maybe AWN?).

I unpacked the tarball, and wound up with a single large file.

Am I doing something stupid? :/

You don't need to unpack the tarball:
Just open Gnome Control Center, select "Theme" and click on "Install Theme", or just drag the file and release it over the window.

Ah, yes.
That's not my desktop: that screenshot is from Hammergom too.

I was too lazy to make one myself :P

Uh?
I don't know... :D

I just replaced one by one all the icons from this theme:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/buuf+icon+theme?content=44539

with the ones from:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Aqua_Project?content=55120

...

And finally I tried to correct some little inconsistencies by studying other "perfect" themes (i.e. Human from Ubuntu, Industrial from OpenSuSE and raw Tango), but essentially the file hierarchy is 90% the same as Buuf icon theme by Fana-m. :)

I'm glad you like it :-)

I have no problem with a port.

Please credit the artists, myself included and a screenshot in your Gnome would let others know how it will look.

That was simply a request...you don't have to do anything if you don't want to.

You have my blessing...lol.

Anything to help Linux look good is good ...my friend
