Description:

nuoveXT is an icon theme for GNOME and KDE.

This is my first attempt of creating an icon theme. There is still a lots to do, but I thought I could share what I've done so far. Made entirely with Inkscape.

A big THANKS to:

- Inkscape: what a great tool! :D
- Ubuntu, Linux and Open Source in general
- All the other GNOME and KDE artists who have inspired me and specially everaldo (http://www.everaldo.com/) which is, I think, simply the best icon designer out there ;-)
- Open Clip Art Library (http://openclipart.org/).
- DeviantArt: One of the best place for inspiration and artworks.
- pwsp.net for hosting my project.

Constructive feedbacks are more than welcome ;-)

Enjoy!

Hi,
great iconset.
But the icons for a mounted and unmounted device are the same. Could you add some icon versions for mounted devices?
Thanks,
Chris

This set is just great! I used Snow-RAD until now, your set looks just perfect.

Please try to make it fairly complete, it looks professional and clean, but not cold.

Thank you very much!

Openoffice icons are great! But with the new Openoffice 2 there is the Openoffice Database too. It seems this set now lacks this icon. It would be great to have it.
Thanks for this iconset, absolutely outstanding.

why imitate vista?

Not trying to be rude or anything, but this concept has been severly over-done. It seems that every time crystal releases an icon set, it is immidiately followed by another one that looks just like it, and somehow manages to get rated higher than the original.

Even the name of the icons put me in the mind of Nuvola, and I just assumed that they were a new version of that set.

That's a great icon set, you are doing a good job.

But why did you move toward CC ?

You are greeting Inkscape, Ubuntu, Linux, Open Clipart, etc. which you used and are all Free Software, and you set a non-Free license to your work.

Well it's your work, and as I said, it's a great one, and you are free to use any license you want, but since your work is now not Free, I won't agreed to use it anymore :-(

Regards

Hi,

I am the maintainer of the debian package kde-icons-nuovext. And as I mentioned before, here in debian we have only version 1.1 which was GPL.

With the non-com clause in nuovext 1.5, this version became non-free and will therefore never hit the debian-archive.

As is seems, there are many debian users who like nuovext, but I guess they will change to another icon set when nuovext becomes too outdated.

Please consider to remove the non-com clause in the CC license, to make these icons free again. With this step, I can update the debian version to 1.5


Kind regards

Bastian

Cyrstal was the first complete icon theme that was beautiful and with character. This is probably the second. I wanted to try a new icon theme and this is best I've seen so far. But it is missing a couple important icons:

- executable file (a gear...)
- dvi file (a lion head)
- slideshow file

and not so major ones:
- eps file
- and a LYX icon, please!

Thanks for a very creative and new icon theme, which not another shiny crystal variant!

I really like your icon theme; however, I really hate the idea of the folders on their sides... I mean all the stuff in them is going to fall out!!! And besides, it makes file-browsing somewhat uncomfortable since it's all weird...

So please put the folder correctly!!!

I have a problem with the toolbar icons. They show up small on my toolbars even when i have them set to medium. Screenshot http://luketopia.net/nuovext.jpg if somebody could please help.

A criticism I have is that some of the gray/white icons are hard to see/make out against a gray window color (e.g. Klipper, KMenu, New, Print).

I think this should definately be one of the themes included in KDE 4, along with the default Oxygen, Crystal Clear as a replacement for Crystal SVG, and Noia.

Saying that these icons are "rip offs" is pretty dumb. Linux/BSD are "rip offs" of UNIX. KDE is a rip off of Windows/Mac/CDE which are all originally rip offs of Xerox. As long as you're incorporating ideas, and not actually copying verbatim, it seems fine to me. That is the whole idea behind free software - ideas can be reused.

I'm sorry to tell that actually that many icons are looking a lot like a rip-off from other icon sets: Folder design are too much close to latest Windows Vista previews (http://forevergeek.com/windows/windows_vista_beta_screenshots.php)., , but it can also be a recursive rip-off of iTollbar Folders as you can see at http://iconbase.com/#. It seems like your are also using the same desktop image used for the windows vista previews :) . The home icon is very much similar to Mac OS X home icon. You seems to have talent, you probably can came out with something more original if you want. It's normal take inspiration of other artwork and so, but this time the folders are just a copy of another artwork.

Like I mentionned in an other post:
Those two are icons that I really like so I decided to recreate similar ones in Svg format. I was just experiencing with inkscape, sorry for sharing my results... ;-)

If Mico$oft (or Apple or even iconbase.com) want me to take those two icons out of the set, then I'll be glad to do so.

I just think it's funny that there's hundreds of people who Actually rips some content from windows and apple and never get blamed ;-(

This is terribly true. I cannot believe it. And it is so highly rated. IMO the author should delete this theme from KDE-Look.
