Description:

I made some new tab icons for konqueror because the current ones are imho pretty ugly. Currently I think the 32 and 22 sizes look pretty good. I am going to fix up the 16 size next. After that I am going to add some more tab icons (for duplicating and detaching tabs).

Please give me feedback on what is good, what looks bad, and ideas as well. Thanks

Screenshots:

1. 32x32
2. 22x22
3. 16x16

Installation:

Just untar them and run ./install.
Note: you must be root to install them. If this doesn't work, copy them to the relevant ##x##/actions directory of your default icon directory

Redid the icons as I found them to be too light, and also didn't quite fit in with the other toolbar icons

Any chance of adding a Detach and Background icon?

It would complete these great additions.

Also today Crystal 0.9 has appeared... and they dont include your tab icons...

Im going to make another package with some extra icons in (For example theres only 1 konq icon, 1 shell icon, the ones personally I dont like that much)

Anyway...

Hope you can do those two extras

it seems that you uploaded the wrong icons.. these ones are really not "sharp".
i feel like i need glasses! ;)
plz fix them, they look really like default crystal-icons and should be added to the crystal icon-set.. :)
thanks

I like these alot, however I would like to offer a suggestion. Right now the icons look too much like the Icon View/List View icons. The fact that they represent tabs is seen through the different blue border on the top, however this is very small. I think that to make it even more obvious that the picture refers to tabs you should make the tab part of the image bigger and more dominant.

Actually they look a little too much like the "remove current view" icon, but the addition on the * and X to show addition and removal is nice.

Very nice icons IHMO. Please send them to the kde artist team, maybe they will be included in KDE 3.2 (and yes, the current icons _are_ ugly).

The current ones are ugly, you are right.
These icons are nicer. But see next post: they are not sufficient clear, they look too much like a regular window. Make them look more like a tab!
Thanks for your work!
