Description:

Exquisite is a port of the Xp_Mad icon set created byMimin Ladha. Additional icons by Ghast (action icons) were added to complete the icon set, but additinal releases will follow. This icon set uses a modified version of the build script created by Nick Bargnesi. As a result, the download is only 2 MB instead of 10 MB(Yes, I still have love for 56k users). The only tools required to create the entire icon set are bzip, tar, and convert (ImageMagik). Unpackage the Exquisite.tar.bz2 compressed file and run the included script buildset (./buildset - for newbies). Afterwards, use the Kcontrol center to install the icon set. Please provide some feed back about the icon set. I hope most people like it. If not, give me a good vote anyway :-)

I`m very thankful for your answer, but I already know about that. In fact the readme package say that.

The problem is that I installed ImageMagic MDK precompiled (MDK CDroms) and last version from ImageMagick home page links. Two different ImageMagic versions and error persists.

Why the script can`t find the library ??

Any more ideas ?? THX again.

If you installed both versions, try the following command to locate the convert binary.

locate convert

If the above command returns nothing, refresh your urpm sources and perform the following

urpmf convert

Next, install any updated version of Imagemagik and once again execute

locate convert

after you find the binary file

place a link to the file in the usr/bin or user/local/bin directory.

If you can't find the convert binary, you may wan't to unistall both versions of image magic, reboot your box and reinstall one of the versions.

Let me know if this doesn't work.

A C:\ icon for Dosbox or dosemu is very much neccessary. Who hates MS? My favourite game is Microsofts gorilla.bas in Dosbox.

Could you send me a copy of the icon you changed. I'll add it to the Alternate Icons package and list you as a co-creater.

As I am (the?) one who suggested to remove the C: ...

MS is irrelevant to me, I have not much feelings about them. But IMO its not correct to have a DOS prompt in a Unix terminal icon.

Who cares. Replace it with another one if you don't like it. I think the icon set is perfect (I did replace the C: prompt icon with a bash prompt icon however.)

I didn't really read you message so let reply once again by saying that I hope the alternate icons suite your needs. The set began as a windows icon set, so initially when I ported them my focus was on completing the port. I'll re-release them soon with all native nix artwork.

The second download link has alternate icons that remove the hated Microsoft C:. Personally, a terminal or command prompt perform the same function so it's not a big deal to me. However, because so many people were so passionate about having it removed, I created the alternate icons. I hope everyone enjoys the set.

I notice you've decided to include the icons from my theme :) I'm glad you liked them enough to include them, but would appreciate it if you gave me credit :P

When the icon set is installed, you name is listed in the index file of the icon set. As a result, you name appears as the co-creator under the Kcontrol center Icon Description. You may not have noticed your name in the Kcontrol center, but I'll also update the description text here on KDE-LOOK to insure that you recieve the credit for your great icons.

I'm sure what your problem could be because I can download the files just fine. What Browser are you using?. Try right clicking and selecting save target as.

The script is not finding any of the kmenu icons for me. I checked the folder and they are there. Anyone know if I have to run the scrip from a certain place?

This is my error message:
Using the suse.png icon as your kmenu icon.
Invalid selection (suse), the suse icon was not found in the .128x128/apps/ directory....exiting...

You should be able to run the script from the Exqusite directory. This directory should contain the 128x128 and the 32x32 directories, the README file, and the index.desktop file.

Over a 1000 downloads in a day and a half. It's official, Equisite has gone Platinum (1000). Thanks for the support guys! Tommorow I will be releasing H30. It is 3 times the size of Exqusite and just as beautiful.

I'll update the set tonight with an alternate konsole icon for all those that hate the C:\. I'll also post a link to the icon for those that have already downloaded the icon set and just want to replace the icon without re-downloading the kit.
