Have you tried the technique done by the Aqua icon folks ? It has to do with link the 128x128 icons to differrent link names like 64x64.

For example you only need to create one icon set based on one resolution.
Using the 'ln' command in this fashion. Off the top of my head this is how it's done. While in the icon directory you type...

Example :

ln -sd 128x128 64x64

or

ln -sd 128x128 96x96

For more info I would suggest manning the ln command and playing around with it. Also don't forget to change the desktop.index file and add 'Scaleable' instead of 'Threshold' to the section at the bottom which describes each icon section. This way you can offer one size set of icons ( 128x128 ) and have KDE scale them down abd cut down on the file size as well.

OK, I see your point. I guess I hadn't considered that (mostly since I don't really use anything above 48, and that's only a few things).

Aside, I do have to say that both of your sets are absolutly wonderful. PLEASE keep on goin'!

I just love the Noia sets!

BTW: I made a variation of the background that can be seen in the original Noia previews. Can I post it here?

the original Noia wallpaper (in blue) is not under 'gpl' or any 'free' license. Someone posted a wallpaper link here (kde-look).
Anyway, i have no problem with external use/distribution of my works, at contrary!
I only disagree with 'abuse': inclusion in commercial softwares, some developpers think they can use any graphic/photo freely. The icons are one of the most effective parts, to make any software/desktop more succesful.

About your request, feel free to make any change and upload it.

Fantastic... well, I'm sure you have heard that a million times. Is there a place where I can read how you work / how you design / what tools you use?

I use Ulead Photoimpact, a commercial software for Microsoft Windows platform. I tried to run this software under Linux, using the last Wine version (my first succesful compilation:)), but it still don't works :(.
It will be possible to make these icons using other software (f.ex. the Gimp), but it will need much more work.
I will post the sources (some ulead photoimpact files, photoshop layers for personal iconing), explanations of 'how', 'why' i created these icons (and other skins, specially the winamp3 skin, if someone is interested to make a kjoffol-noautun port let me know), some tutorials, and maybe a GNI (guideline noia interface :)). This may be called a 'Noia Book'. There's another iconset on the way, and surelly will be the most spectacular. It will come very soon. When i released it, i will work in the 'Noia Book' (i don't know if this will be their final name).
Note about versions: all the Noia iconsets have the same #version. When i finished the next iconset (Noia Natural), i will wait a month, then all 3 iconsets will be the version 1.00.
