Icon Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net


/! I made a Buuf iconset for Gajim, to go with the GTK theme. You can find it here : http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=103768
I also have one for Pidgin, here : http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=118412

Based on the buuf theme by fana-m (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/buuf+icon+theme?content=44539).

Some icons from Nestort's theme ( http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/BuuF-Deuce-iconset?content=46201 ).

A very few icons come Buuf-Deuce theme by djaany (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/BuuF-Deuce-iconset?content=46201). His theme has been really helpful to get the right icons name !

All icons were made by mattahan (http://mattahan.deviantart.com/), thanks a lot to him for his great work !!

Last changelog:

3.32 1 month ago

Again, mostly keeping up to date with new icon name change from Gnome 3.32



10 years ago

I'm waiting for the name of the icon in the version of Rhythmbox you are using :·D.



10 years ago

would be great to see other program icons added and linked such as Frostwire, Geogebra, GPRename, game contents, Python, problem report, orca, onboard settings and all the other panel applets that haven't been done yet...

Also, if there is any possibility of integrating more function icons such as RSS or other active commonly used icon types the system might need

in the meantime.. im building a fully integrated pidgin theme kit.. hope it'll be a good release for you guys to enjoy ^_^

i am missing linphone and eclipse in this collection.
I wonder why the pidgin icon does not incorporate the pigeon, that would be nice :-)
anyway, I like this very much!!!




10 years ago

I could use this image for Pidgin, but it looks a little bit agressive :
What do you think about it ?
I made a Linphone icon for next release, but Eclipse does not use the theme.



10 years ago

thanks for the linphone icon.
The pidgin one fits very well in this scheme - imo not to agressive!



10 years ago

Awesome! Thanks for the skype icon. I was wondering if perhaps one could be made for QQ aswell? QQ is a chinese IM client and it's mascot is this penguin http://www.danwei.org/2007/09/30/JDM070930qq.jpg




10 years ago

I've just tried to do this, but it seems that this software brings many bad habits from the Windows world :
- It doesn't use the standard theme scheme (ie it does not look for a qq.png icon in the selected theme, then the fallback theme, and then finally to hicolor), but it uses directly an icon in /usr/share/tencent/qq/qq.png. Therefore, I can't make the QQ icon to automatically switch when my theme is selected. On the other hand, it might be a on-purpose decision by the QQ company to protect their trademark ;·).
- It does not use the Windows decorator, change the rule to move the windows, and therefore acts in quite a strange way with Compiz Fusion.

I was not able to log in, or to understand anything, since both the software and the website were using Chinese characters.

On the other hand, it seems it is not a final version.

My 2 cents :·D.

However, you can easily change the image yourself, and you may want to use this image :




10 years ago

By the way, shall they change the Icon line in /usr/share/applications/qq.desktop from "Icon=/usr/share/tencent/qq/qq.png" to "Icon=qq", and put their icon in /usr/share/tencent/qq/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps instead of /usr/share/tencent/qq/ , it should use the theme as any other application.



10 years ago

I've been using a BUUF theme for a long while now, but this is the most complete I've downloaded. Thank you. It looks great.




10 years ago

Thank you. Please let me know of any icon that you think I should add, because they differ a lot on which software you are using ;·).



10 years ago

It could do with an icon for Skype. Other than that it's a good icon pack.




10 years ago

Done :·D.



10 years ago

Superb job. Voted good. Thank you.




10 years ago

You are welcome !
Most of the job was made by fana-m.




10 years ago

And of course, mattahan.

in buuf1.03/128x128/places you need `ln -s folder_home.png user-home.png` couse in ubuntu/gnome2.22 home icon from desktop is missing :) anyway - great :)




11 years ago

That's really strange : I use Ubuntu with Gnome 2.22.1, and I had no problem with the home icon, it showed everywhere I expected it to be : when I was on Nautilus in the /home folder, in the shortcut in Nautilus bar, in the shortcut of the Gnome menu ...
Still, I fixed it.
Thanks a lot !




11 years ago

Sorry about it, do you know an easy way to get it fixed ?




11 years ago

I think I got it :-D.

This script will hopefully work :

for I in $(ls -l * | grep /home | cut -d " " -f 11-|sed -e "s/\->//"|sed -e "s/\ /




11 years ago

Okay, it seems perfect, can you please check it again :·D ?



11 years ago

in this theme are broken softlinks, ie bookmark-new.png aren't relative link to bookmark-add, but to /home/../.icons/buuf/..


3.32 1 month ago

Again, mostly keeping up to date with new icon name change from Gnome 3.32

3.30 8 months ago

Buuf is back!!!
Various stuff, mostly to keep up with Gnome's new convention to name program icons as org.gnome.Name.png .

3.22 2 years ago

Updated for Gnome 3.22, and added a few things for Budgie, which actually benefited some other setups of Gnome just as well. For instance, if you added the Minimize button and Maximize/Restore button on the window decorations, it should now be properly themed like the Close button was already.
Also I can't find how to add a link rather than host the file one Gnome-Look ?!?

3 years ago

3.20.0 :
Fixing icon names to match new Gnome convention.
Added an icon for Polari.
Likely a whole bunch of stuff I forgotten about. Let me know in the comments!

3.10.0 :
Fixed the lack of speaker icon next to the volume slider.
Added a grid (for showing programs in Gnome-Shell and for Nautilus views) and a list (for Nautilus views), but I'm not very happy with how they turned out. How do you feel about them ?
Added icons for Gnome-Music, Gnome-Maps and Gnome-Tweak-Tool.

3.8.0 :
Added new icons for the new version of Gnome, mainly for the new settings and the new applications.
Added an application icon for Clementine.
Added complete support of Gtranslator :P.
I'm in desperate need for a headphone icon, now !

3.6.0 :
Added a few icons for the Gnome control center, and a bunch of new Ubuntu-specific icons.
Added a Quodlibet and a Exfalso icon

3.2.0 :
Added support for some icons new to Gnome 3.2, like online account (goa-panel), or removable media (drive-removable-media). And some icons from Nestort's theme, for instance for some games. And some stuff. Nobody cares about what I write in the changelog anyway.

3.0.0 :
I had the good surprise to see that Gnome 3 asked for very few change to the icon set. Basically, there was one new icon for the timezone setting. Gnome 3 also uses "symbolic icons", meaning monochrome, usually very simplified icons. I provide one version of the theme which identifies the symbolic icon with the corresponding normal one, bringing buuf colorful icons into the Gnome-Shell upper panel, and another one which do not provide symbolic icons, for people who wants to keep the clean white icons there.

2.32.4 :
Added support for lpi (Launchpad integration), Evolution-Rss, and a few application icons (including firefox-4.0).
Also fixed an issue with status icon size on old versions of Empathy.

2.32.3 :
Added a dexter icon. Fixed a bug with Gajim notifications.

2.32.2 :
Fixed a bug with emote icon size in Evolution when writing html message.

2.32.1 :
Added icon for Spotify, Dropbox, Audacity, Openshot and Postler. Reworked the Undelete icon.

2.32.0 :
The organization into folders changed completely.
Added icons for F-spot, for Ubuntu Messenging Menu and Me-Menu (cause they changed the icon name required for Me-menu status).
And a whole bunch of other stuff that I don't remember yet, I'll complete later... maybe.

2.30.3 :
Fixed a bug that made Empathy status icon in the contact list unnaturally HUGE.

2.30.2 :
New tab icon.
Icon for Chrome, Chromium and Midori.

2.30.1 :
Change of the logout and change user icon.

2.30.0 :
New icons for Rhythmbox and Banshee
Docky icon
Addition icon for GPM and encrypted network for NetworkManager
[edit]I forgot to update the download url. Sorry, guys. Should work now. If you see 2.28.2 in the name of the theme, then just download and install the new version.[/edit]

2.28.2 :
More nm-applet support (wifi strength, and connection animations).
One more icon for eog (slideshow-play)
gnote, gksu and lshw-gtk app icons.

2.28.1 :
Brasero is now completely supported.
Better Synaptic support.
Fixed Audacious 2.
And some other stuff I don't remember.

2.28.0 :
Now uses version number that matches the Gnome version for which the theme is developed ;â‹…).
Fixed some battery and bluetooth icon issues in Gnome 2.28.
Fixed fast-user-switch-applet
Added some apps icons.
Added some icons for the Ubuntu-specific notification system (though I hate it \o/).

1.7 :
New app icon : Stardict.
Some more mimetypes icons for Office (OOo and MSO) files.
The gtk-index icon from the GTK stock iconset.
No more useless icons.
Main new feature is still the .deb and the «themer» versions.
The themer version comes with all the stuff useless to a simple user, but which might be helpful for anyone wishing to modify the theme ...

1.06.3 :
New apps icons, including Nautilus (!). Partial support of Compiz-Config (ccsm).
I finally found how to replace that ####ing info icon !
Conduit full support (I hope). [edit]I've now fixed the stupid «Main program's icon missing» problem :·D.[/edit]
And certainly some other stuff I don't remember...

1.06.2 :
New status icon for Empathy are now also used by the fast-user-switch applet.
I don't know if I should keep it, because Pidgin don't want to use any other status icon than his very own !
Added icon for brightness stuff.
Added some apps icon.

1.06.1 :
Added full Empathy support. Give it a try !

1.06 :
Added Listen support, and a few other changes.
A LOT of cleanup, so their might be some regression on the older version of Gnome. Please tell if you find any !

1.04.3 :
Fixed Gnumeric icon and animations.

1.04.2 :
Added a few apps icons.

1.04.1 :
Added an icon for Skype, and fixed the History, Bookmarks and Lock icons for Epiphany.
And I guess some other stuff I don't remember...

1.04 :
Now compatible with Gnome 2.24.1 ! There are some changes in the icon that the theme use, a few improvement (especially the Edit icon with that Pen-on-paper icon ....), and I hope no regression, but I can't swear ...

1.03.9 :
Added some icons for the « computer:/// » nautilus special adress.
Changed Bluefish icon.

1.03.8 :
Added some real Rhythmbox support. I also noticed I forgot to include the mimetypes I should have in 1.03.6, so now, at last !, this presentation icon in Evince should work !

1.03.7 :
Added generic mimetypes, and a Add/remove software icon.

1.03.6 :
More mimetypes (BTW, Evince use one of these icons for the presentation button, it gave me a serious headache, and I consider filling a bug report about it), and power-manager applet icons.

1.03.5 :
Added some applications, one mimetype (lyx files), and some actions.

1.03.4 :
Reverted some change in index.theme, to look more like 1.03.2, since I did not expect a change in the folder's order to have such a big impact.

1.03.3 :
Minor change in icons, index.theme updated, last one did not include 128x128/status !

1.03.2 :
Added places/user-home.png

1.03.1 :
Fixed broken link by replacing absolute link by relative ones.
