Description:

This is a repackaging of Nautilus' "Scalable Gorilla" icon theme. I've put it up here mainly for testing purposes.

This is an SVG theme. You *must* have KDE from CVS HEAD for this to work. You must also install libart_lgpl before compiling kdelibs. libart_lgpl can currently only be obtained from kdesupport in CVS.

This theme does not contain the Ximian logo, as required by their peculiar licence.

If you like the icons, but don't have KDE 3.1, go to http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=925

Finally, props to Jakub Steiner, who drew this lot. He may work for the other side, but he's obviously talented. His site's at http://jimmac.musichall.cz/

I have a CVS HEAD copy of KDE installed, along with libart_lgpl, but the icons don't seem to work. Is there anything special I have to do to get it to work (like configure kdelibs with special flags?)

...re-run configure in kdelibs after installing libart_lgpl?

If so, I'm not sure what's wrong.

what all the fuss is about SVG format icons. I've yet to see any that look appreciably better alpha blended 32 bit ones. Perhaps, when my new iMac arrives, I'll come to understand a bit more.

the Mac doesn't support SVG icons. Nothing apart from KDE and GNOME does.

However, the SVG format has been likened to the icons commonly seen with OSX. Perhaps this is another case of. . .great format. . .so-so implementation?

SVG icons are vector based icons. You can decrease and increase size without losing quality. I don't know how that is similar to the icons in MacOS X, because they aren't vector based.

I did not vote this down, because efforts like this should be encouraged, but the ximian icons are among the _ugliest_ eyesores I've ever seen. It's like the Emperor's New Clothes though: people seem afraid to admit that some Ximian/Gnome icons are really not that great.

One of the difference between kde and gnome icons lays in the way icons are designed: kde ones have straight borderlines, all with the same thickness, as gnome have more hand-made looking ones, looking like they were drawn with a pencil. Tigert and Jimmac are pro artists and make great contributions to Linux.
As you can see, my tastes lend me to prefer gnome-style icons, more artistic in my opinion, kde ones looking more serious .
But as we say in french, man shall not discuss about tastes and colors :)))

Well, I don't agree with you. Tastes differ. But regarding your comment about Ximian icons: I'd say it's often the other way around - some people don't like the icons just because they are associated with GNOME. That I think is stupid, especially as I truly like Jimmac's and Tigert's work.

Thank you! Jimmac and Tigert are great artists. The combination of their graphics and KDE makes my life a little brighter. :)

-----------

Im not sure what you mean by that sentence. Does the license require that the logo *not* be included? Or does it require the Ximian logo be included, and you just didnt feel like including it?

It's here:

IANAL, but it seems that if you include the ximian logo with anything you redistribute, you lose the ability to modify it. I'm not sure how legal it is (trademarks overriding copyright law?), but let's not have a licensing flamewar ;)

Ximian requires that if you use their logo on any product that you pay a royalty fee that is if it isn't produced directly by them.

So use the monkey and pay..or at least your suppose to pay.
