At the current stage there still do exist copyright issues concerning this icon theme. There are many icons in this set which are either modified Windows XP / Mac OS X artwork or which resemble very closely the icons in these operating systems (e.g. printer, camera, stop, viewmag, etc.).

There's no problem including those icons with KDE 3 which are original artwork done by the author himself (In fact this would be very much appreciated).
This is up to Kristof though.

The 'iKons' icon theme started as 'Kicons', which was in fact a WinXP/MacOSX based icon theme with my own folder icons. Now, I'm redoing most icons in order to incorporate my own style. This should be finished by iKons 0.6.

When this transition phase is over, I'll start the discussion whether or not to include iKons 0.6 as part of KDE 3.

I think this icons are realy cool! they rocks! ;) But i have one question, why my toolbar icons are not alpha blended as on this screenshot? Is it a feature of KDE 3?

I am also interested in an answer to your question.
I'd like to have shadowed icons in my toolbars. When i saw this screenshot i tried to change settings directly in ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals (i changed the lines "AlphaBlending=false" for "AlphaBlending=true", for each "[MainToolbarIcons]", "[SmallIcons]", "[ToolbarIcons]"...) without any result !

How to do to implement alpha blending in toolbars of kde 2.2.1 ?

These icons are truly amazing! I think they should be integrated in KDE3 and you should be sent to Hawaii for a reward! Well, maybe life isn't that easy, but you sure give us something nice to look at in the mean time....by the way...

kdelook.org ROCKS...keep it up guys, I'm comin' back again and again!

What happened to the development subdirectories in 0.5.2? I was using quite a few icons from there.

And one more question: Do the alpha-blended toolbar icons work only in KDE 3?

The new KDesktop, Konsole, and KControl look much sharper and well-defined in this version. This icon set just keeps getting better.

I left out the development subdirectories in 0.5.2 because the icon theme was getting quite large (over 1.1 Mb). I'll clean up the development subdirectories and add the best icons to the icon theme.

The alpha-blended toolbar and menu icons work only in KDE 3.

there are some icons which don't show in KDE 2.2.2 (SuSE 7.3) The files: -- /22x22/actions/alarmd.png -- and /22x22/actions/back.png forward.png up.png --------------- If I copy alarmd.png to /opt/kde2/share/apps/korganizer/icons/hicolor/22x22/actions/
and the alarmdaemon was showed in the panel . ----------- Also if you open a new window (new instance) of you konqueror (clicking an url which opens a konq-window) then this konq-window misses the iKons "actions" icons and falls back on the KDE2 default ones. ----- I don't know if Kristof is aware of this and if more people are having this "problem" ... ---- grtz - Fab (iKons-fan)

I know there are problems with previous versions of iKons (iKons disappeared after a few moments) ... but this should be fixed in iKons 0.5.1 and 0.5.2.
If you're still experiencing problems, please contact me at kborrey@skynet.be.

How did you fix this problem?

My icon theme 'slick' suffers from this aswell, however not when opening konqueror, but when using embedded components like the text and pdf viewer.

Great icon set btw :)

I like this set. All the icons but the terminal like ones (kcontrol, terminal, ...) they are really ugly dark... the others are wonderful light and easy to understand. These terminal-like types seems to be very equal.. Mhh i don't like them. Please rework them. Thanks - but really good work yet!

I'm redoing the device icons (16x16, 32x32 and 48x48). My aim is to release new device icons with iKons 0.6. When I'm redoing the device icon, I'll also redo some other icons like e.g. the Konsole/Kdesktop/Kcontrol icons.

Why are there now two versions of this theme? Surely the icons are not that different for each version. Or is it just that some are not included in the pro version?

But I've been using these icons since they were first release and think that they're just getting better.

Unless I'm mistaken, the only difference between the two packages is the icon for the "Run Command" icon. Some people didn't like the little rocketship as they felt it was "un-professional". The Pro version uses a different icon for the "Run Command" icon, but teh home version has teh rocket.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Great work! I'm definately looking forward to the 1.0 release.

One little comment: I like having my themes installed in /usr/share/icons so everybody can use them. It would be nice if permissions were set right on the package so icons aren't executable, things aren't world writable, all things are world readable, etc.

A very lovely icon set, but one tiny little comment: The arrows seem to be closer to the upper edge than the lower. It makes them feel a little non-centered, vertically.

Please keep up the good job!
