Description:

UPDATE!! I am trying to implement another one of material designs philosophies, namely to use more than one action on an element, to show it's importance, since it is difficult;t to animate icons without your theme. Instead I'm trying another method, color. First, just on the folder components, since this is the easiest, since almost every file-manager, supports at least an open state, and a closed state. There are two alternatives to the standard type of folder already present in School Material, if you use one of these two variations, please, I'd be interested to hear your feedback. Like for instance, if you liked them, would you like to see something similar for other high priority icons, like shutdown, etc?

Alpha version of School Material. Meant for dark themes. Still under development!

Theme mostly follows Material Design guidelines, where it makes sense. Occasionally a piece might veer from the guidelines, and is usually related to shadows. I want depth in my dark theme! Very little flat or long shadows, occasionally (again, where it makes sense), I have incorporated a few. If you don't like a current icon, its likely a placeholder. Alpha!

Feel free to assign your favorites if they aren't currently covered. I myself, utilize a custom built desktop, so naming for kde, will be one of the latter updates. There is more support for xfce, openbox, lxde, or any X based menu or desktop system currently. Support for gnome has been added. All system core coverage should be included. Hopefully, you enjoy the set. Comes with pre-configured icon cache, if you add to the core files, or change names, please do not use symbols, they will invalidate the cache, and gtk will complain incessantly.

not finalized, just once they have settled down, and aren't in such high flux. I just don't have the time to maintain two repos for it, at the moment., when I constantly tear down the one I have for it.

it is contradictory, they are free designs, but you do not share the svg, now it is more efficient to use svg to png, it is faster, and the final set will look better. regards

I will share the svg. And I agree, svg has so many benefits to png, however the linux standard at a bare, requires .png, even if submitting an svg, which the set follows. I had hoped to have a project I'm on finished by now, so I could dedicate more time to getting the set ready so I could release the svg, however my other project is still on going, for at least one more week and I just haven't had the time. But I promise, the svg will be released, and in the not too distant future. Although it would be faster, the repo is currently setup, I would have new scripts to write, adjust the flow of the main repo, and testing to do implementing the svg, as it is, I am pulling 12-16 hour days as is, some weeks it's 7 days in a row, especially since we are so close to launch, and it involves many stakeholders, I just don't have the actual phsical time to make such a large adjustment. I have to sneak in an hour here, there just to have enough time to draw new icons.

But as soon as I launch, and I can hand some work off to the tech team, getting the baseline down for icons here, is a main priority. Once that's settled, the Svg will be released. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but please do check back and they will be available soon. TM.

a possible solution to decrease the blur of the icons, is probably to set the icons of apps as scalable, for example:
[128x128 / apps]
Size = 128
Context = Applications
MinSize = 128
MaxSize = 255
Type = Scalable

Hopefully some of the changes I made to the scripting procedure, seem to have increased the clarity quite a bit. The issue was with imagemagick, apparently, Even when an image is resized as an svg before any flags are are given, I.E. imagemagick -resize 18x18 filename -convert filename.png , the files were still getting penalized by halo effects. It was also only present in batch executions and not if each was converted singularly. At any rate, the files are now converted by resize alone in SVG, then converted again to make the transition. I am stil not 100% with the results and have been toying around with some alternate methods, I should be changed over to that method by next update. But these are still greatly improved, and my apologies.

A bit more guidance in case anyone is interested in the below:

An easy way to modify the names, or add any number of user directories is with the command
xdg-user-dirs-update in your favorite console.

This automatically creates the
~/.config/user-dirs.dirs (local)
and
/etc/xdg/user-dirs.default (global)

files, without the need to either create one if your menu system didn't, or locating it.

In order to name a directory, use (I recommend to modify local, as it will only impact that user)
XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" ## if you change the Desktop to something else, your root desktop file will change to whatever you name it

Since it's done through XDG, on next boot or env update/refresh it will automatically point all required stuff that relies on that directory to the correct place, unless you've modified your init scripts. Some other names you mentioned are:
XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Templates" ## or change to $HOME/Awesomeplates as an example
XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Documents" ## change to $HOME/Papers

You can also create your own
XDG_DROPBOX_DIR="$HOME/Dropbox" ## as an example.

But to change the defaults, you do need the correct default mapping, which if you run the command, will be written to the local file mentioned above for you.

If you write your own file or modify say the XFCE4 menu file, just double check your /etc or init system to see if you need to hook a line in to update any other parts that may rely on the naming convention during boot or init. Some things may do like a
if [ -f $HOME/Desktop ]; then function() as a part of init that might fail if not updated on next boot. The main culprit I would look at would probably be xdg manager, or your DM.

@freefreeno You are correct, no desktop has full support, as it's in alpha, and I personally don't run a desktop, so what's been included for XFCE came from their min requirements for their distro icon package requirements, which is adwaitia (spelling?), which also has a fall back of gnome.. The XFCE parts I do use in my WM show different icons for keyboard, settings, mouse and touchpad, those are also linked against the standard mime naming conventions outlined in the linux overall icon naming guidelines. I was unaware that lightdm had an icon as a desktop launcher, I personally use a heavily modified SDDM, but no GUI to interface with it to need an icon. If you can provide the naming conventions (in your /usr/share/applications or $home/.config or $home/local/share/applications) desktop file (it should have a name on the file, not the one that shows in your file manager, but if you inspect or right click desktop file and click properties, the name before the dot.desktopfile extension, I would be more than happy to include them on the next update.

The downloads is a naming error that I keep forgetting to fix. The icon in question is lowercase, when it needs to have a letter capitalized. Thanks for reminding me!

You can change whatever deafult you'd like the them to to pickup for folder icons. Either specify a fallback in the theme.index file, if you have a prefernce. Or in your $home/.config, whatever menu system you use, will have a high level reference file to the folder assignments, sometimes this file can also end up in /etc, but it contains the naming conventions that assign differnt icons or images to your folders. You can add names, , remove, change defaults, etc. The easiest way, is just to hard link the folder in question, via that file, to an icon location. The naming of the file does also change depending on if you use openbox, the lxde older xfce menu, or the xfce4 menu system. Or at least it did some years ago, when I last used XFCE.

This icon theme doesn't work in xfce. Downloads,Templates, and public folders default back to gnome icon theme. Also workspaces icon in settings is gnome. Window manager tweaks in settings. Power manager icon on panel and in settings. Keyboard settings editor and mouse and touchpad icons are the same icon in settings. Lightdm icon in settings. Seesion and startup icon in settings.

Update to 0.0006 4 months ago

Large update, sharpened images, updates to mimetypes and apps Fixed some additional links, and names.

update to 0.0005 6 months ago

Many bug fixes, re-scripted output to resize svg before converting all together, vs. just converting before resize, but still executing resize in one command. It seens to have increased the clarity a lot, although I have found some alternatives that should bring an even crisper image to everyone! The index has also been re-written to keep the icons from being over or under sized too far outside of their pixel adjustment range. I have corrected several file folder, so they should display correctly now. Name public, downloads, and templates. A fairly large increase to the Apps folder again, along with some minor gains in mimetypes. Also corrected some naming issues, more improvements to come!

App update 7 months ago

Large app update, now over 500 icons in apps. Gnome support strengthened, xfce support enhanced, some kde support added, very minimal for kde but a start.

Update 7 months ago

added more gnome-support, and increased XFCE support. Added icons, categories, mimetype, and apps
