Thanks for the feedback and the positive votes!

I love using KDE and while it has many good icon sets, none of them really appeal to me. some KDE icons sets are beautifully crafted and obviously represent the result of many hours of effort but they're often too busy and too colorful for my taste.

I searched high and low but never found a KDE icon set which I felt completely satisfied with and so I finally decided to take the plunge and draw my own. Hence I'm designing this set for myself as much as anything else. However its nice to hear that others appreciate it as well.

I'll be adding more icons to the Klene set in the future - look out for updates.

This is really promising.
I can't wait until this is more complete
like Noia. I gives such a distinctive
look to the desktop. All my colleagues
walking by are saying: Cool!
Please, please continue developing
this.

I really like them.
They don't like Windows or like
Mac OS X are simple and
good-looking. Currently I use
the Noia Icon Set. Unfortunately
I haven't found an icon set I liked
yet which is as complete as Noia
so I can't replace it. Would it
be possible to create enough icons
so at least Konqueror has a complete
toolbar (new tab / kill tab and so on)?

Good concept. I don't like the back/up/next/undo/redo/stop buttons at all. They're very very plain.

The minimal approach makes some icons inexplicable. What is that icon with the rounded rectangle with the off-center arrows on top and bottom? A compressed file? If so, why do you have the same motif with a border, and another icon which has a folder with the same arrows? .gz versus .tar.gz? It's not obvious at first glance.

Similarly, what's the box with the star for? Favorites? New? And why is that same star on the icon for "Paste?"

Also, the K-Menu and executable icons stand out in stark contrast to the other icons, with their myriad gear teeth. They look much more complicated than the other icons, and don't seem to quite fit. Now that I look over the image again, the Cut and Find icons seem a little off, because they are drawn with solid lines, whereas every other icon has a white (or colored) center with a black border.

I think that a little polish and thought could make this a great icon set. I agree with the other comments about making the colors consistent. Perhaps colors for actions, and b&w icons for mimetypes, or a similar color-coding scheme to make it very clear what any given icon will do. E.g. red icons are for devices, green icons are for actions, yellow icons are for folders, and white icons for files.

Good to see some more original icons. I'm glad that it seems we are starting to move away from the whole os/X crap...

I think the look to these icons is great, and I look forward to seeing this icon set develop :)

However, there is one thing I don't like so far, but it might be because they are not finished yet. I don't like how some icons are coloured and some are black and white, it breaks the consistent feel that the set would have otherwise. It would be really nice to see you colour the black and white icons.

Other than that, a REALLY nice icon set!

Thanks,
Stu
