Linux From Scratch svn-20101131 here. Good artwork should work for any distro.

Fedora 15, Mint 11, and Arch.
I think my favourite is Arch though. (It's just a real pain to set up.)

Is this icon set still being developed?

I'm asking since there has not been any activity for a long time now. Would be really a mess, as it is a really original icon set - and i think there must be a alternative to crystal.
( although i like them :)

There will be a new trash icon in the next release of iKons. This release will also feature icons for a digital camera, flash card readers, etc.

also any chance of more mime types ?

i dont even think there is a .deb
mimetype were not all redhat or
clone users.

if you can then this
icon set would be complete

Change the trash icon and especially the jpg one, it's really ugly.

First of all : This is excellent! I haven't used any other icon-set for a very long time. I do have a couple of requests though.
The KMail icon doesn't look all that good on the kicker with the others in 'normal' size.(32x32?). This is mainly due to the icon being vertically shorter than the others. The Air-mail envelope edges also look less terrific in 32x32. I'd also like to see more folder-icons scale down properly when looked at in tree-view. Some of them, like the grey folder, have no iKons image in the smaller size.

Hi,

I have been using iKons for quite some time now,
but i never really liked the arrow-action-ikons,
which now vome as a default. in version 0.5 rc1
there was the possibility to change the style of
these icons as described in the README. for version
0.5.8, README did not change, but the scripot doesnt
work no more :(
why did you remove the other arrow layouts?
is there a chance they will be back sometime soon?

please, i really want to have them back in an official release.

thanks in advance

I left out qnix and netscape icons to save some disk space. But I'm looking for the possibility to release several iKons themes, e.g. iKons_qnix and iKons_Mozilla.
But first, I need to get iKons ready for KDE3final.

I'm looking at the possibility to create an icon theme per category of icons (devices, mime-types, folders, applications, actions, etc.). By doing this, users will be able to select a different icon theme for each category, e.g. iKons folders together with default devices. It would also be possible to create multiple action icon themes, e.g.: a qnix action icon theme, a Mozilla action icon theme or a iKons action theme.
I think this should solve your problem.

Someone already mentioned it but I think it'd be really nice if you'd add 64x64 icons for devices as well as folders. Any chance of this happening soon?

I'm working on new 16x16 and 64x64 icons for folders and devices. These icons will be ready by iKons 0.6.

I really like this icon theme bat i need to give a suggestion.
I think that this icons theme need a default pallette (like future gnome icons), this give to the icons a coerency in the colors (this dont happen with current version, see the KDestop icon & the refresh icons, the blue is different, the green between Kcontrol & Refresh is different etc.etc.).

Bye

I keep looking at kde-look for the update of your icons, they are perfect. Did you ever think of changing the k-gear icon (on the start button)? I think it might worth changing.

You are a real artist.

Thanks

I sort of see the K gear icon as an identifying trait of KDE... KDE's icon, if you will. Making it look like anything else (short of an official change) might not be such a good idea.
