I'm so sorry, but it is a 10 years ago project, when there was still kde 3.5. I've no longer the time to redesign everything and redo the deployment scripts set.

What about the license? I want to package it, but "almost all GPL" is not acceptable. Which exactly icons are under GPL?

One of the greatest icon sets ever. It's a shame it's dying without a KDE4 port :(

For those wishing to convert kde3 themes to kde4, I found this while Googling:

http://svn.pardus.org.tr/viewcvs/trunk/kde4/kde3-to-kde4-iconconverter/?root=uludag

It works quite well because it keeps it simple and converts only the core kde icons, but you will have to copy over any custom application icons you want in the output icon theme. You can also tweak the icons copied by editing the map file.

It works with Crystal Project :D

Nice work, excellent color choices. Integrates w/o a glitch, easy to install. Using it since January 2009, would love to see ported to kde4, although I'll stay with kde3x until KDE4 matures. :)

KDE4 has come a long way. You should try it again :D

I know, KDE4 used to SUCK but now it's comfortable.

i wanna port this set in kde4,
but for now i not use the version 4.
Normally i love Fedora and PClinuxOs
beacuse i have start to use linux
10/15 years ago with redhat, and i prefer
this style of distribution.
Probably i wait the exit of fedora 10
and then work on the port.

This theme would be the best if it could work under KDE4.

Many icons just don't work, they either stay with the old icons or different ones are mapped (the BACK and FORWARD buttons is the blue-black kde menu icon, not the nice arrows). The simple blue horizontal folder icon is not changed at all and I could not make it work by copying the black vertical folder to other kde4 icon folders.

There are other cases where the icons don't map.

Plz port it to KDE4, this theme is so nice it cannot die with KDE3.

tnx

Hi.
Great job, but I still don't see icons of standard KDE Apps... Kopete, Konversation, Kontact, KTorrent...
Will be good to include Firefox and Thunderbird icons in same style.

There are a couple small issues with this icon set.

#1 your python code to build the set in the buildset.py file says to use "python buildiconset.py Dark_Glass-2.4" as the command to build the tarbal file needed to install the icon set in KDE3.

The code needs to be python buildset.py Dark_Glass-2.4" instead. I think this may be what made it such a process for me to get it installed.

#2 the icons in your pictures are so bright and colorful, but the icons that actually get used especially on the desktop are a very dull, greyscale icon. The "K" menu icon, and "Konqueror" icon on the task bar are also bright and colorful as well as most of the "K" menu's contents, but the "Home" icon and some others are the dull, greyscale icons I referred to above. Is there any resolution to this?

Oops. I'm the author of the Python buildset script, this wasn't Mentalrey's fault, it was mine.

I've updated the script:

Please accept my apologies for the errors and any headaches you've incurred as a result.

Sorry to say, but I beg to differ from most people here. The icons look good stand alone but as far as usability goes the theme is not that good. I do not like the black icons. This is just my opinion.

Hey mentalrey,

I know you've heard this a lot, but once again, this is an incredibly amazing icon theme. Thanks a lot for your effort!

I was wondering... would it be possible to add a mozilla sunbird icon, in the line of the official one? For a while, I've been using it along with firefox and thunderbird and it'd be just great to have a sunbird icon too!

Great job!
