Hi FireCracker,

nice to hear that you will release the next version with new icons.

One thing i realised is that the overlay icons doesn't work well, if they are black on black. Some overlay icons i have converted to white.

This solution doesn't work well too, because normal alias icons are white too.

Maybe you have a better solution for that issue.

The overlay icons are "emblems" you can choose it with right mouse options.

Hey, nice theme.
Here's 2 icons for thunderbird, and exaile. If you want to incorporate them to the set, go ahead. And, if you want more help on others, let me know.

There's the .tar.

Hello, great theme, anyway, anyone know about any pidgin theme that matches this icon theme?

And I have some icons I miss, an icon for abiword, and some icons in abiword, new tav button in epiphany, gnome-power-manager and some icons in the application and the shortcut for cd/dvd creator in places menu.

I have been going through every black/black-white type theme here and these are the best ones by miles, they are just so clear and visible on my grey GTK theme :)

I am completely clueless on any theming/image editing work, and I'm wondering if you can please make an icon for the .gp3 and .gp4 extension, with the icon saying "Guitar Tab" or even "Tab," as it would be for tuxguitar and guitar pro tab files. I use these all the time and it would make this set truly complete for me :) Thanks so much if possible! Great work.

well i encountered some problem in make gnome recognize the icon..

First of all, thank you for making it!!

As for how to have gnome recognize it, wow I am not sure. To be honest, how about just putting it in every possible way? For example the typical mimetype I see in the icons folder is: gnome-mime-application-pdf.svg. So why not make a bunch of them like:

gnome-mime-application-gp4.svg
gnome-mime-gp4.svg
gnome-mime-application-x-gp4.svg

etc.

I apologize if I'm not the most helpful as again, I am not familiar with creating icons/themes at all, but hopefully we can figure this out :)

about the notification area, after a kernel update i should see an icon that means i have to reboot, when using your icons, i aint got this one.

about nm-applet, i aint got no icon, nothing appears even if i reload it.

thx ;o)

well... me the ignorant guy..
About my "problem it was due to the dark GTK2 theme i use, i simply cannot see the dark icons on a dark theme...

maybe i could try to modify the nm-applet and other icons to get it in white, that would be great... if you allready got these ones... just let me know...

sorry

The wireless status icon is great. Looks like from OSX.

Here i have some new icons:
- stock_bluetooth.svg
- armagetronad.svg
- eclipse.svg
- and some more for evolution

Here you can download it: http://www.mediafire.com/?4w1xeveztxz

Anyone knows how to change the evolution-tasks icon?

I created one but it don't show up in evolution.
