Description:

nuoveXT is an icon theme for GNOME and KDE.

This is my first attempt of creating an icon theme. There is still a lots to do, but I thought I could share what I've done so far. Made entirely with Inkscape.

A big THANKS to:

- Inkscape: what a great tool! :D
- Ubuntu, Linux and Open Source in general
- All the other GNOME and KDE artists who have inspired me and specially everaldo (http://www.everaldo.com/) which is, I think, simply the best icon designer out there ;-)
- Open Clip Art Library (http://openclipart.org/).
- DeviantArt: One of the best place for inspiration and artworks.
- pwsp.net for hosting my project.

Constructive feedbacks are more than welcome ;-)

Enjoy!

Try to recreate the tar.gz archive and drag it in the theme manager window instead of copying the folder in ~/.icons/
That should do it ;-)

Hello,

Just like to say your icons set is broken and you have nuoveXT_gnome_tar.gz when it should be nuoveXT_gnome.tar.gz.You need to recompress it with the correct name as said in your .index.

Nicey designed icons but the mimetypes are pritty much all the same, and some copys of Etiquette Icons.

I've had to mark it down for this.

Deviantart renames the file. You'll need to rename it or to recreate the archive. There is nothing i can do about it.
Yes, there is a few icons from Etiquette, which is in the Open Clip Art Library, which is under Public Domain licence.
As for the mimetypes icons, well, this is a work in progress and of course, there will be eventually more representative and different icons in the future.

Thanks and keep on with this good work :)

Using Fedora Core 4 I had to
change all occurences of "Scalable" to "scalable" in index.theme
copy gtk-go-back.png to gtk-go-back-ltr.png in 32x32/stock.

Great theme, but I think you are missing the gnome menu icon. Usually it's a little foot, but now it's just a blank sheet of paper, which I think you call "missing-icon" or something. Otherwise great!

It's one of the very best icon themes that I've found for gnome. But I think the "directory" images are a little too dull. It'll be definitely better if you can make it a little more "cool" or "lively". =)

The "file manager" icon is also not very intuitive (I understand what it is only because I know where my "file manager" icon is. I still can't really see what that icon is. Or... is it just me who can't understand that icon?

Also, may you please make a "root terminal" icon too. That'll make it perfect.

The above is just some suggestion. Agree with my points above or not, thanks a lot for your excellent theme!

I like it way better than crystal. Crystal is some what busy looking and the color palette is way unnatural. Your color palette and icons are awesome. Please complete it!

Hi, it seems you tar the file first and then tar.gz compress it. This causes problems with gnome theme manager and forces the user to manually uncompress everything.

Great Icons!!! I wish you offered another colorset (Brown folders edges are too soft and blend into white nautilus background making it hard to see)

like bvc said, deviantart renames the file. You'll need to rename it or to recreate the archive. I already have a bunch of colored folders icons, i simply forgot to put it in the archive ;-) The Kde package has them though. So you could check de kde package or wait for the next release ;-)

So far this theme is looking really good. If I may make one suggestion...

The icon you have chosen for gnome-fs-client is not immediately recognizable. It looks like a "Windows" (metacity properties) icon... In fact, it's the same icon you used for that too. On the first screenshot you have posted above, the first icon on the very last row is quite clearly a computer. Seems to me, that icon would be more appropriate.

Other than that, I think most everything else looks great. Thanks.

Thanks for your suggestion. I was already aware of that icon being not really representative. I changed it in this update. Let me know what you think.

That's weird, i'm on Ubuntu too and didn't have any problems... Try to recreate the tar.gz archive and drag it in the theme manager window instead of copying the folder in ~/.icons/

I think all that is needed is to rename the file. When I downloaded the theme the file name was nuoveXT_gnome_tar.gz. I received an invalid file format error when I tried to install. I changed the file name to nuoveXT_gnome.tar.gz and it installed with no problem. Very nice set of icons. I look forward to updated versions.
