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.

@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.

I double checked a few of the icons shown in JustPerfection's link and hopefully for those icons, the blur is taken care of.. As you can see in the link, the only blurring is from the laptops colored shadow, and doesn't have that white fuzzy blur as shown in his link. If the problem is persistent, please let me know, and I can try to replicate how the error is occurring.

New update to the APPS section, over 500 icons in apps, expanded gnome, xfce, and added a touch of kde support.. To further eco some of the below, I also re-ran the tree and moved some of the scripting, hopefully this reduces some blur while I look into the matter further. My apologies!

Ill have to look into the blur, its likely because of the scripting and the resize function placement. Since the files originate from SVG and no blur. I have noticed some aliasing on a few of the icons as well. That being due to the main color, particularly material designs pink and red 500's have a tendency to do that. I also noticed that some of the action icons have blurred as well, this is either again the resize function placement in the script order, or could be realted to the stock, the action icons are derived from the material design community set. I will make sure to include an update for this in my next round.

As for not including the SVG currently, I'm in the middle of a huge project launch and I just don't have the time to injet another tree to maintain into this project. Hopefully in the next few weeks that will change, since launch has started for my other project. But I will likely only include the svg set once its in beta. The files are constantly in flux right now, and I just don't want to add another layer that I have to write scripts for, optimize svgs for, etc.

It is icons cache bug. You need to install StartupWNCLasser and Stacer. Fix with StartupWNClasser, and then clean caches with Stacer.

I have another update incoming within the next day or so, it will expand the mimetypes again, as well as deeper support for gnome, expanded support for xfce, and a couple dozen new icons, mostly in the application area. I appreciate everyone who has downloaded and enjoyed using ShoolMaterial. It's already in the top 100, I didn't expect such a warm response, and Im very appreciative of all the kind comments/msgs! Check back in a day or two at most for the update!

The response has been incredibly positive, way more than I had anticipated! Thank you, to everyone enjoying School Material, I truly appreciate it! As my way of showing thanks, I'll be releasing several updates shortly, greatly expanding file type recognition (as well as icons for that), additional app icons, and initial support for gnome.

I will look into connecting my repo to the projects here, and I'm told that will open up donation capabilities through the site.

Thank you again everyone!

Update to 0.0006 9 months ago

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

update to 0.0005 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago

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

Added display board 1 year ago

Added another panel, that shows a sample of the new icons coming in this update in the next few hours.. This is not the full update, just a view of some of the application icon additions. Thank you and I hope you enjoy them!
