Description:

The bulidset GPL script is the backbone of the graphitekde icon packages. It is a GPL'd script that reduced time needed for iconset creation, testing, distribution, and downloading. For example, the original graphite iconset was approximately 20 MB. By using this script, the size of download is reduced to approximately 6 MB and the time to create and port new iconsets is drastically reduced.

README
Run the buildset script
Select your custom kmenu icon (xeyes is good)
Wait for the icons to convert
Wait for the tar.gz or tar.bz2 to build
Install using kcontrol

Why the script?
6.5 MB versus about 20 MB.
And the script can be used by icon artists! Just
create your 128x128 icons then use the script to
create the additional icons!

Added Info
-------------------------------
The SuSE icon added to the package (apps/suse.png) is under BSD license by tkdesign-studio.com provided on kde-look.org.
Additional icons provided by other icon packages with written / or distribution consent.
The GPL'd buildset script is included in the package, as well as the separate download.

Changelog:
3.1
Added gentoo kmenu / buildset support.
Improved the toolbar icons.
3.00 Slight fixes between 2 and 3, mainly little icons like
kmail inbox/outbox/sent_mail.
buildset script now supports different sizes in a variable (SIZES).
Added some SuSE type value-add stuff. Like icons for SuSEwatcher and
SuSEplugger. I'm not a SuSE user, so I don't even know what they're
for.

2.x Internal Templates for all sets
Fixed the script to support BSD too I hope.
Added more icons and synced sets up together.

1.01 Fixes
The script implicitly support whatever distribution you're using.
Before I inserted absolute paths for the utilities, but now I am
using a better method. :)
I also commented the buildset script as well as created an added
index.moreSizes.desktop file for kcontrol. You can look at the
buildset script and see spots where you can add more sizes, I used
56x56 as an example. Since SVGs are not going to happen, I can
at least provide this. Just keep in mind whatever sizes you
specify, the index.desktop file will have to reflect that. :)

1.00 Initial release
Rade8 packages are now using build scripts to limit the amount of
obnoxious bandwidth these packages use. Added icons including
(not limited to) kmixdocked, kmix_muted, new konqueror icons,
changed save icon, apps/icons...

it would be nice if you culd give more options for the kmenus/go/start or what ever its called menu, while xeyes is nice, its kinda downheartening to see nearly all of the ones u give as options are distro specific, it would be ncie if we could have more general ones like the picture of tux, or possably add some more distrobutions to the choice like slackware, debian, not so much the derivitives of these distros like mepis and DSL. Anyway great icon set could do with one for opera though and like i said just before offering a wider selection to choose from for the go/start menu thingy.

Grat idea about the buildset script as well, espeicaly useful for dial up users like me, saves a whole heap of time (2 thumbs up)

Great job

Michael

The Sparkling icons are great (I love them!) but they are not completed and they don't seems to be maintained anymore.
Will it be possible to merge the "actions" icons from Sparkling with your icons? They perfectly fit together.

Would like to thank you for such a great contribution. Really appreciate the script. These icons are my favorite and the script is so awesome. Glad you represented BSD also.. Even though I use FreeBSD rather than OpenBSD..
Thanks again for the great work!!

I'm really surprised you don't have it. Convert is part of the ImageMagick package available at http://www.imagemagick.org - I would double check to make sure you don't have it before getting it from their site. If you have a RPM-based system, you can use the command line to perform:
rpm -qa | grep ImageMagick
to see if ImageMagick is installed. If you don't have an RPM-based system, you can always search for the convert binary using 'find'. From the console:
find / | grep convert | grep bin
which will look for any file named convert with 'bin' in its path. Hope this helps!

This is the best way to generate Snowe-Rade8 icons. Plus you get to choose the kmenu icon too!

I love it!
