Description:

nouveKDEGray is a gray KDE icon set designed for use ONLY with sufficiently dark color schemes. With dark styles, it can change the look and feel of KDE considerably. It also includes a lot of extra places icons, that can be used to distinguish special folders.

Note:
=====
Some nonnative apps do not respect the icon theme specification and may not select their icons from the theme. Apart from such cases, if you have installed a KDE or Qt app (or any desktop-agnostic app) whose icon is not included in the set, please tell me!

I update this page whenever needed but without announcing an update. The latest date is in the ChangeLog section below.

I would be happy if you could make a icon for these ones:

Clementine
qBitorrent
JDownloader
Muon Package Manager. Since Muon Update manager has one.

And Thanks for the icon theme. Good Luck

Thanks

Clementine and JDownloader are already included (I just edited the Clementine icon yesterday). Perhaps in your distro, their desktop files refer to a path, in that case, change them to include lines like this:

Icon=clementine
Icon=jdownloader

They should be in /usr/share/applications.

I'll add the other icons in a few days. Thanks!

Thanks for the very fine work. You might perhaps consider these too:

Octopi (a very fine graphical package manager of Manjaro which can be used in other Arch based distros as well.

Cantata (The best audio player, an mpd client.)

Kid3 / Kid3-qt (Very fine audio tagger.)

MakeMKV (The great and only DVD/Bluray to mkv converter.)

Mkvtoolnix

LuckyBackUp (The best backup utility.)

Qgmailnotifier (Old but reliable gmail notifier which doesn't require Kwallet.)

ReText (Markdown editor)

Expoblending, Open in Raw Editor, Panorama (All, I guess, get installed as parts of Digikam though they just sit under the Kickoff menu.)

Xsane, Qwinff, Yagf, QTFM, Juffed, Sweeper, Qpdfview, ZNotes, Plume Creator, Flirc, Converseen

Thanks so much. By the way, the qgmailnotifier has only a tray icon. I'm very glad to see that you've made an icon for the greatest dictionary app, Goldendict, however its tray icon doesn't honour your implementation. Guess there's nothing to do about this as I've replaced its icon path in its desktop file with yours; not only that, I've replaced the actual icon in pixmaps folder with yours without luck as well.

Some Qt apps use their built-in icons because they're meant to be independent of any desktop environment or even be multi-platform. So their icons can be changed only by modifying their sources and recompiling them. Some of them, like SMPlayer, are themable but even SMPlayer uses its own icon for tray and task manager.

In my opinion, it's a good practice for programmers to use their own icons ONLY after checking the installed theme, and that's very easy to implement in Qt.

OK, with the next update.
BTW, KTorrent is much better than Transmission ;)

It's curious, but for me transmission download faster than ktorrent. You can try to check. Thanks!

Please consider this as a very low priority suggestion. But some applications are using their own icons for certain actions and it would be really nice if you could find the time to improve the icon set by including those. For example, I am using Kile a lot at the moment and those very simple and colorful icons break the nice overall look an feel of the desktop.

Thank you

Unfortunately, Kile, digiKam and Amarok don't use the action icons I made for them, while Kdenlive does.

That's a (minor) bug. In my opinion, although Qt-only apps can use their own icons because they're desktop-agnostic, KDE apps should always use the theme icons.

I agree with you. Another example is Amarok, whose latest version doesn't use the theme's icons while its previous versions did (a bug?). Kdenlive is yet another example. I'll see what I can do for them.

Thank you for this very nice theme. I am really impressed how comprehensive it already is!

Perhaps you could create a nice icon for QupZilla, which is one of the best Qt-browsers out there :-)

Other nice additions would be some of the development tools like QGit, QtCreator, KDiff3 etc.

Thank you for telling me about those apps! I'll make icons for them. BTW, QtCreator is already included (I use it often).

You're very welcome. Please tell me if any KDE or Qt app icon is missing; that's the only way I could make it more complete.

Thanks for the rekonq icon, very beautiful theme, I would like icons for clementine, umplayer, ark. Thanks so much!

Icons for clementine and ark are already included. Perhaps you need to change the icon theme in System Settings and return to this theme for the icon cache to be remade and those icons to be shown.

I just forget about umplayer but will add it with the next upload.

Well, I'm already fan :D
It really looks great with the "Optimal" color set.

I think there are a few missing icons (didn't restart KDE session since switch to NouveKDEGray) (KGet, Kile, KMyMoney, Kontact, Netbeans & quassel)

Thank you very much for sharing :D
