Description:

This is The Reinhardt Icon Set

- This icon set has been created for use with the Reinhardt Style available from the kde-look site at ( www.kde-look.org ), and is a proposal for the default Slicker icon set.
- This is an SVG icon set. This means that it requires at least KDE 3.2 (if you use anything less, it's really silly of you ;) ). If you want to use the icon set as a PNG set, this is still possible, though it will take you a little while to make it one such. Run the makeiconset.sh script (not the makesvgdistro.sh which is for my personal use mainly) and wait (run it in console to get some verbose output about what it's doing). After this process has completed, swap the two files index.desktop and index.desktop.png around so they are called index.desktop.svg and index.desktop respectively. You should now have a working PNG icon set. Note that this requires Inkscape to be installed as well as ImageMagick.
- If you wish to have the icons a different colour, this is possible by selecting the Icons section of the Control Panel, then selecting Advanced. Here you can set the effect used on all the icons, one of which is Colouration. (thanks to spooq for this tip)
- If you want to use these icons, please give credit where due. They are released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) (available from www.gnu.org/copyleft ).
- The icon set is based on an original concept by Alexander Smith.

Please note that at least on my machine, the libart included with Konstruct for KDE 3.3.2 destroys the kde icon renderer to the extent that using Reinhardt will crash most applications as well as render most of the icons utterly weirdly.
The way to fix this is to use the makeiconfolder.sh script included with the SVG package to render the SVG files to PNG. Install Sodipodi and run the script from the base of the icon folder (probably ~/.kde/share/icons/reinhardt-0.10/) and wait a while... A rather long while, I'm afraid, it takes a long time to render that many icons.
If you do not have crashy type problems and the icons look fine, there is no need to do this!

Programs used:
Sodipodi ( http://sodipodi.sourceforge.net )
InkScape

ImageMagick ( http://www.imagemagick.org )

On the name:
Ad Reinhardt, 1913-1967
Reinhardt was an American minimalist painter, who became known for his extreme style, which also became more and more reductive from the mid 1950s, towards his death in 1967. After 1955 he worked almost exclusively in near-black. This said, there is in fact colour in the paintings, for example his "Abstract Painting no. 5", 1962, which can be found at the Tate Modern ( www.tate.org.uk ), is, though seemingly black-blue, in fact squared with blue and red.

If you add a little more color to each icon, kind of how the K icon, blender, or kpackage look, this set would be perfect.

Hey, thanks :) And you're welcome!

Also, just to say it again: If you want the PNG version, which is faster, just run the included makeiconfolder.sh script :) (make sure you've got ImageMagick and Sodipodi (not inkscape, though it should be fairly easy to change the script to use that) installed.

It's nice to have a unified look in Kontact for KDE 3.3. But I would really like to have an icon for Superkaramba too.

My Reinhardt theme is looking better than ever. I switch looks fairly often, but I go back to this one more than any other.

, then we can use SVGs for the Throbber too :D )
Actually, the throbber in konqueror doesn't use a single animated image, rather it uses a series of images (action/kde[1-15], IIRC) search around in your $KDEBASE/share/icons/default set.

Nope, those are the icons used to draw the "reading folder" icon when Konqueror is refreshing the sub-folders of a tree-view. But thanks for the tip anyway, I like it when people help out :)

Thanks loads :) Please try out the SVG version, which should now work almost perfectly (i.e. no broken lines and such). All that's missing now are the gradients in a few icons, because the icon renderer seems to ignore these. But it might of course be a D^3, which would mean I'd have to work around it somehow ;)

I've been referred to your iconset by a peer on the MozillaZine forum. I'm glad he told me about it... your iconset is a great work of art!

If I could ask you... would you be interested in creating an icon for LogJam, the standalone Linux client for LiveJournal (www.livejournal.com)? I've been using it for a while and would much appreciate it if you could possibly create one.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you for the kind words, and yup, LogJam is now on my todo list :) Could you possibly find out what the icon is called? It might have a different name, though of course that would be silly it's been seen before.

Thanks for the reply. It's great to know you're on top of things! Looks like the name of the icon is "logjam.png". Hope this helps.

Keep up the great work!

How did you get the set to work perfectly with KSVG? Is it something that other SVG theme authors (cough cough) can do without too much trouble?

Well, there are random weird glitches, but basically, just set up your set to use the svgs and try it :) Have a look at my index.desktop.svg (or index.desktop in the svg only archive) to see what I did :)

Other than that, watch out for scientific notation in the SVG files (Sodipodi and InkScape both 'suffer' from this), as KSVG in 3.2.1 and before (3.2.2 has this fixed) barfs on those and refuses to render the icons (earlier versions of the Reinhardt image icons specifically had this problem). Scientific notation is where numbers are written as for example 0.9882432e-17 or somesuch (which translates into basically 0).

Finally, Kontact doesn't have mixed icons when I use Reinhardt. This is a world class icon set now. I would love to have a background that makes more use of other Reinhardt colors aside from grey.

That's a very good point, I will get onto this, after fixing some of the problems with the icons in SVG mode (which, by the way, almost works now ;) I'm working closely together with the ksvg people, who are happy to help (Great work people!)). Reinhardt should show more colour in other places than the icons, because even if subdued, it is there :) New Reinhardt wallpaper will come sometime either later today or sometime tomorrow :)

As someone who is also working on an SVG icon set, I'd really appreciate it if you could explain the problems and keep us all informed, or point to bugs and mailing list posts that do the job!

Well, there's always the ksvg channel on irc.freenode.net :) But, a few problems we've encountered are present mainly in icons created with Sodipodi and InkScape, due to their precision (they have scientific notation on some attributes, which breaks the current ksvg, but which has been fixed in CVS) and other small things. Really, there should be noting specific about it, but for actually using the SVG files as icons, have a look at http://www.freedesktop.org/Standards/icon-theme-spec where there's info on how to make themes that accept the files.
