Description:

The 0.1.4 version provides 645 (!) different icons framed in aqua lenses both in 48x48 and 32x32 sizes. Beware, the download package is meanwhile bigger than 4 MB.

Read the changelog for more information. You can either install Marbles as a theme or unpack it by hand and use only the icons you find attracting.
[marbles cooperates with Conectiva's Crystal Icons. You must apply Marbles anew if you update Crystal Icons.]

-----

Marbles tries to frame already existing items from different iconsets to provide a consistent style for your desktop. Except the marble design and a few newly created icons all pictures used are other artists' stuff. This includes "art reuse" (as in "code reuse") of crystal icons, slick icons, iKons, hicolor, Acqua and different other ones found on kde-look. Thus the copyright/copyleft restrictions of the original artists still apply. I deeply hope everybody agrees with my attempt to unify the icon look for the rest of us who don't have the time and skills to create their own complete, originally, ground-breaking innovative theme If you don't consent, please let me know.

"When it's done" ;-)

Releasing it this month would cause too much traffic on my website. You have to wait at least until 1st of august.

Alrighty. So I can expect them around the same time as the new POV-Ray 3.5 source. ^_^

It's possible since a *very* long time. It's Aqua Graphite by Aronnax (KDE-look content=154).

I love your icons. Keep up the great work!

One Suggestion:

Combine the 2 latest Marble releases. marbles 0.1.2 Translucent and Solid. Make a tar.gz version with 2 folders one for the translucent and one for the solid version. There are so many marbles releases it will be easier this way. If you need more space I think I can host your icons so when people click download they will download it from me. Anyway great job and keep up the great work.

True, there are too many Marble releases and while 0.1.3 raises its ugly head I'm reconsidering my packaging policy.
The biggest disadvantage of combining all "editions" into a very large package is that it wouldn't be possible to install and deinstall it the default way - via the Control Center. This is IMHO *very* important for the vast majority of users, because it's an easy way to try a new icon set and to get rid of it afterwards CLEANLY!
[Other advantages of seperate packages are the smaller download size, the possibility to inherit other icon sets and that you don't have to copy anything by hand]
Nonetheless I *will* reduce the number of packages.

but i must confess I am a fan of these icons, and i also think i prefer the solid version.
Yes, some icons become too small in the "drop", but remember that the author did not design the original icons. Some other icons, on the other hand, come out great in their "marble" form! Icon designers should also consider people who do not use 64x64 for their icons ... Crystal for instance,, imho, looks pretty bad in anything smaller than 64x64 ...

I'm very sorry - I have feared this was going to happen anytime soon.
As owner of the icon design you have of course all rights about it. I will take it out ASAP and contact you via email.
Didn't intend to insult you with using and changing your artwort! Sorry.

Dont listen to these buffoons, they dont know what quality or style is. I LOVE your icon set! I am more of liking the solid than the translucent. Keep up the good work.

This icon set may look quaint, but it's hard to use, as the real icon is small inside of the 'marble'. The icons only come in 48x48 size, so you would need to set your panel to large to see them (although it's interesting to set it to medium - then the icons pop up in a bubble when moused over). On the desktop they look worse than the default - I'm sticking with Crystal, which I copied over the top of the hicolor icon directory, so it's the default on my system now.

Did you ever figure out how to fix that? The icons I downloaded are transparent in kde3, and in the gimp. I've got 2 machines, and the only one doing this is my laptop. Any ideas?

Although I tried different settings I can't reproduce any display errors. Sorry. It works with me.
Either I made a "brown paperbag" error or maybe one of your graphic libraries is too old (or your wallpaper uses the alpha channel).
