Description:

i've started to create a new buttonset for the konqueror-browser, but at the moment it's only one button i want to show with a screenshot.. it looks a little bit like the crystal-icon button from everaldo, but with the difference, the shiny edges were rotated to the left.. so please comment this - thank You!

****Download and unpack the tar.gz-file..copy your favorite icon-set under different name in your .kde/share/icons-dir and copy the content from the unpacked file in this dir - have fun!****

and at least: please don't vote it down just for fun - ok?

brighten up & darken the border of the symbols inside the buttons, so now they should have a good visibly at smaller button-sizes..and i've changed the symbol for the gohome-button..
----
added a dark border around the symbols.. first release for download!
----
i've scaled the arrow-symbols inside the buttons and changed the layer-mode, so now it looks shiny or like glas or similar.. i think, it looks better now.. (have a look @ the screenshots)

I prefer the blue variant but since everybody makes comments only here...

Don't listen to the wet-blankets, you made an amazing job, Sandro! (Especially in blue...)
We're so used to the round buttons of Konqueror but that's true there's an usability issue. Nothing looks like more a round button than another round button. What a PITA! :-(

I don't know if the glass effect will be so nice on the symbols without the round background but you should try and show us the result. Apparently, following the unspoken future guidelines of usability has become mandatory in KDE. ;-)

Unfortunately, form a usability standpoint, all icons that have a symbol in a circle are a bad design.

This is an element of the current Crystal style and it should be changed.

as in the previous comment, the Arrows inside the buttons look way too small. buttons are good but symbols inside the buttons need to be larger. good work.

Shouldn't this be posted on kde-look.org? Lately there have been too many postings on kde-apps that have nothing to do with actual applications (e.g., graphics, configuration scripts, "ideas", etc.). I suggest that such content be posted where it belongs, so that people looking for applications can find what they are looking for quickly and easily.

P.S.,
This comment has nothing to do with the actual buttons, which are very nice.

But you might consider enlarging the symbols on the buttons. What really matters is what's on the button, not the button itself --even if it's so beautiful like yours.

Keep on going, you're in the right direction. ;-)
