Description:

The Tango Desktop Project aims to provide a uniform look and feel
to a given graphical user interface. This includes:

* The Icon Naming Specification
* Transitional icon naming utilities
* Standard icon style guidelines
* The base Tango Icon Library
* The Tango Icon Library extras

This is not your standard icon set. Some effort is required.

The icons look good, but there are some icons missing. For example, the icon to fetch your eMail is missing, as are icons for zooming in and zooming out, an icon for kget and kgpg. Like this, it looks quite iconsistent because some icons are tango-style and others aren't :/

I know. I've asked and bugged about this on several occasions. Many of the icons needed for a consistent look on KDE simply don't exist in the naming spec (and probably shouldn't). It's certainly possible to create an icon set to fill in the gaps, but I haven't the time to try and organize such a project.

Some icons you can get from http://jimmac.musichall.cz/i.php
There are many Tango icons (such as NLD10 YaST page, which containt KDE logo icons).

1. Get Tango-Blue-Materia.tar.bz2 from http://materia.infinitiv.it/
2. Extract it into ~/.kde/share/icons for yourself or into $KDE/share/icons system-wide
(where $KDE is /usr, /opt/kde, etc. depending on your distribution)
3. Replace the index.theme file in the Tango-Blue-Materia folder with this:

I've been trying to install this on suse 10.1 and icon-naming-utils compiles and installs fine but when I try to install tango-icon-theme I keep getting this error-

configure: error: icon-naming-utils >= 0.7.2 is required to build and install tango-icon-theme

I've tried every prefix I can think of for both and I've tried installing icon-naming-utils from source and from smart package manager.

I've even changed the pkgconfig variable to account for every possible location it could be looking.

I just want the icons. And I want them in png-Format in a size of 128x128. Where can I get them? I don't want to install all that stuff. Is there a simple script available that converts all the svgs to 128x128 pngs (or maybe to all sizes)?

Tried to install all this but ended up with a configure notice that it needs a simple perl module. Cannot find that via apt. Much too complicated for a simple icon set...

Can someone who managed to make the icons post them in png format? Please...

I made a script that will convert all the svg icons to all the various sizes of png's. Just run it in the directory with the svg folder and if it doesn't have the size/section folders then you will have to create them. You can get the script at http://www.box.net/public/ezy57u3ntd and it requires rsvg/librsvg.

I have successfully built this theme on Debian Sid using the instructions at http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=707915&postcount=7 starting from step 2 (I installed the dependencies manaully based on ./configure errors). I also needed to install libmagick* and libmagick*-dev (*=9 in my case) and also mkdir /usr/share/icons/Tango in order to get checkinstall to complete for the icons-theme package (Can't see how to report this bug to Tango). I agree that (Tango) theme installation on KDE is far, far harder than it needs to be (or indeed is, on Gnome). I don't have a website but I have put my debs up on amule /ed2k if that helps (~7MB total size):

Ok, imagine that I am enduser (or know it) and I want to use your iconset for KDE...nothing else.

What do I download?
There are 30 unexplained entries for this content and I have no clue what do I download and use...

By the way, the icons look great.

Hi.

In order to use Tango icon theme without patching and recompiling kdelibs and kdebin, I have modified index.theme, subtituting Context= by Context=FileSystems.

I do know it is not a logial nor elegant solution, but it works nicely.

Enjoy it.

Your method works!!
I'm using Kubuntu with KDE 3.5 and Tango Icons now works fine!

A little tutorial:
-- for icon-naming-utils
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
make
sudo checkinstall

-- for tango-icon-theme
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` --enable-png-creation
make
open the index.theme and replace all "Context='something'" with "Context=FileSystems"
sudo checkinstall


I also made a small post in ubuntuforums explaining how it worked for me( http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=707915&postcount=7 )

Using ubuntu dapper with gnome and kde.
According to your instructions I would have to apt-get remove the rango icon theme, does that mean I can either use the icons in kde or gnome but not at the same time?

Thanks for a great icon set! Some icons are still missing though.

Thank you! The Tango icons are still being worked on, and it'll be a while before it's done. The other problem is KDE's hard-wiring of icon contexts. Tango uses a several new icon contexts described at http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Standards_2ficon_2dnaming_2dspec which aren't "seen" by KDE 3.x.x. As a result, any icons placed in these new contexts aren't seen in the UI.

The thing is that most of us use precompiled packages: rpm, deb, whatever... I'm not going to recompile KDE and later have issues with online updates etc. So why not make a standard iconset out of the real one just until KDE 4 comes out? That would make this theme popular.

Making the theme popular isn't the point either.

Oh, it's "not the point", ok, fine. And so what? Is it a bad thing to make this theme available before KDE adopts the new name specs? Moreover, if this doesn't become popular it will become irrelevant. But anyway, if YOU are not willing to contribute, why do you have to be for or against making a standard iconset out of the original one?

The point of the tango project is not to release an icon theme. Pay attention.

If it was, it might be distributed in a KDE icon package.

"The Tango Desktop Project exists to create a consistent user experience for free and Open Source software with graphical user interfaces."

It's up to the KDE community to adopt this consistency.
