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!

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.

hello! I really like your icons, but i would like the stop-button to be more visible. Perhaps you could make it red or something.

I love them, the only thing that could make them better is even more of them!

There will be more :) Send me an e-mail with a list of icons you would like (plus if you find any actions and mime-types that are missing (also the .tar one, which I can't figure out how to do...)). That goes for everyone, btw :)

I've downloaded it to look a bit this theme when the screenies weren't uploaded... I was waiting for a flat iconset but not this... I appreciate your effort to make this iconset, but it must be too much polished...

A screenshot would be nice. Y'know so we could see what we're downloading and whether it's worth the bandwidth. Would also probably boost you ratings ;)

If you read the descrption, I already know this, but some people were expressing an interest in the icon set used in the screenshots on the Slicker Style screenshots. This is it (so, basically, there are already a few screenshots of it, just not right here). That said, I am going to put a few screenies up later today, I had to get out yesterday (fitting this in around work isn't always equally easy ;) ).
