Well it seems nobody likes the drawers as I suspected.
Im very used to them, being an Amiga fan.

I'm an Amiga fan too! (head of Team AMIGA)

What about file cabinets, like NewIcons or GlowIcons?

Just nothing like that damned "theme" that Stuntzi was charging for...yick.

Personally, the old folders never reminded me of Windows at all. Heck, folders are folders, it's hard to make a folder look different than a...folder.

The drawers, while well drawn, just don't fit. Really, they're called directories, but how do you make an image out of that? It's not the usual sense of the term, something you look up information in (a la phone directory) but an altogether unique concept. Somewhere along the lines we started calling directories folders, for better or for worse. And the only thing that really can depict that is...well, a folder.

They are good.

I dislike the new `drawer' (file cabinent, really) that replaces the folder icon. It seems out of place, and I like the look of the folder icon better. It seems to me that it's an awkward way of being different and is still adhering the same line of metaphors.

First off, I think your icons are great, keep up the good job. :)

Sadly, they're not very well thought off - I mean, all the icons should have the same style. If you're doin' them 3d (like your desktop icon) - then all of them should be 3d. Plain flat (like konsole icon) - .. well, consistency is the key.

BTW, have a look at freeware icon themes at http://www.venus.dti.ne.jp/~mueji/desktop/di/di.htm.
There're SUPERB icon sets (esp. HiTech World, VAIO) and they're free to use/modify. Anyone wants to make a KDE theme based on 'em? :)

The icons are currently in a transition, Im slowly migrating them from 2d to 3d, and its gonna take bloody ages. To tell the truth ive really had enough of drawing icons, but im going to push on until everyone is happy.

Oh, please do let someone else maintain them when you are through! These are just too good. Of course, they're in CVS, so I guess they'll continue to be developed.

BTW you are a great icon artist!

I am a Mac fan who uses Linux/KDE. I adore OS X because of how it puts a very usable, polished UI on a UNIX system.

You make Mac poeple look stupid anc childish with this. Is that you want? That is what you are doing. I don't want you speaking for me id you choose to do such things.

Here's a Mac fan who isn't represented by the above childishness. I don't think any Mac fan would be represented by such childishness.

I wondered why everybody likes this icon set. I installed 1.0 and IMHO it is not a very good set.

1. The icons for "Start Application (K-menu)", konsole, Help (I like this icon) "Home directory" etc. are looking far too similar. Especially when kicker has normal size. You get an all-blue icon-set and have to look twice to distinguish them. Please do use more colors (for people who don't have a color weakness)

2. The icons don't follow any style - especially the bigger icons have very different drop shadows (just look at Help and kcontrol.

3. Almost all of the icons are very faded and, compared to the original KDE icons (just hav a look at the bigger device icons - they are not very clear, they look like washed two times in my washing machine)

4. Some icons are just plain ugly - have a look at the 32x32 device icons (especially the DVD icon)
And what the hell has happened to the house from the home icon? This grayish thing is just ugly.

There are still some icons which let me hope:
help, arrows, small folder icons , bookmark icons,
show desktop.
Suggestions: Use more colors, especially for alle standard icons that are shown on kicker.
Try to create clear icons, especially the big items look faded.
And: keep up your work (don't let one bad comment stop you ;-)

"You get an all-blue icon-set and have to look twice to
distinguish them. "

Firstly this theme is far from finished.

Yes I understand people want more colors and im working on it. Personally I like alot of blue and green.

Alot of icons look the same aswell because ive really only drawn 50% of the icons in the set, the other half are just duplicates with modifications, im trying to weed out the repitition.

"bigger icons have very different drop shadows"

is this really bad?

. Almost all of the icons are very faded and, compared to the original KDE icons

These icons are heavily antialiased compared to the original kde theme, they tend to look more faded/blended. Which is sort of a trade off of (attempted) photorealism.

Yes the small dvd icon and the house icon suck, they'll go eventually.

Also a fair bit of this theme reminds me of win 98/2k etc (and not XP).. The lame folder icons will be gone very soon.

Feel free to rip the ass out of my theme next version. It all leads to refinement :)

Thank You!

Where are the pics for Konqueror's "throber" stored? I noticed that you've changed it, but I don't really see where those file(s) are.

Thanx!

Depending on the location of the KDEDIR and the icontheme and the size of the icons it's:

/opt/kde/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/
actions/kde

Only the 32x32 and 48x48 throbbers exist. The smaller ones are just linked to the 32x32 images

NO, they do NOT copy Windows XP AT ALL. I have experience withh both KDELinux and XP, and it is a fact that Slick is not modeled off XP. If anything, some iKons' hardware icons are influenced by XP.

This is a KDE theme site for people who use KDE. You obviously don't, so get out ansd stay out. There's plenty of Windows XP sites you can take your childish postings to.

This happens to be an EXCELLENT icon set, which in fact was added to KDE by Tackat himself.

Are you by any chnace a Microsoft employee spreading Windows propoganda? Or trying to cause a childish flame war and make the Linux community look bad as part of MS's plan to discourage users from Linux?

You can curse at me all you want, but you only put yourself down even farther, which is hard ot imagine giv3en how low you are already.

Reevaluate yourself and your actions. If you are a teen, acting this way does not make you look grown-up - it makes you look childish.

Sorry, your attemp did not work. You only belied your true level of maturity.

Excellent job with this icon-theme, Amibug.
