this is an icon set meant to be used with dark themes.
It's based on servechilled's area.o42 icons (I found them awesome).
NOTE: This version is explicitly meant to leave out application icons, they are too much!
I hate when a menu list alternates custom icons with original ones and this is kinda unavoidable for application menus (unless I actually create icons for every single past/present/future app in the world :-) ), In my design philosophy it's either everything or nothing...I hate mixups.
Instead, I tried to finish the previous theme "basic" system icons. The previous version had some missing links causing default gnome icons to be used in system applications like nautilus, firefox, etc.
This version tries to address these issues,I added white border to many icons, added a few missing SVGs and symlinks and voilà, at least now my basic system apps use a single icon style (still I need to fix something but we're almost there).
This is my first experience with icon themes then be kind :)
tested under ubuntu 8.10
In the screenshots I used:
colors: custom ( with #777777 as the main theme )
windows decoration: DarkRoom
