Treepata - High contrast
Icon Themes
Score 63%
Description:

Treepata - High Contrast - is based on the Xfce High Contrast icon theme, and developed for the Xfce environment.

--------------------

After having used the standard Xfce/Xubuntu icon themes for quite a while, I needed something cleaner and simpler. Something more fitting with the overall dark theme (Numix) I had chosen for my configuration. Something like the Xfce High Contrast icon set.

The Xfce High Contrast icon set is nice, but also slightly unfinished. Some icons are missing, leading to broken links and standard Xfce elementary icon replacements. So I developed my own icon set, a highly updated version of the High Contrast icon set.

Besides having added my own designs, I make use of Xfce High Contrast's and elementary Xfce's existing icons, as well as additional icons from the ALLBLACK icon set by Mandarancid and 042 icon set by Heylove. Due credit should go to them.

The current version (1.4) includes about 3880 icons. It is tested under Xubuntu 16.04 and should run without issues.

I use the Numix theme (part of the Shimmer Project), which looks good with the Treepata Icon set. You can see the theme in action in the screenshots.

The next version (1.5) will include more in-application icons, as well as some improved, corrected and updated icons (adding thicker borders) - and Gajim icons.

--------------------

DISCLAIMER: Although I managed to add a significant number of new icons, it does not include every icon of every application out there. In particular, if you use another desktop manager besides Xfce (such as Gnome), you might find a few missing icons.

Feel free to suggest or ask for additional icons in the comments below. I will create and include these icons in future editions.

--------------------

INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS: Unpack the whole folder with your favourite file archiver, and place it in ./usr/share/icons. Do not forget that you need root privileges to paste something in this folder. (Run "sudo thunar" in your Terminal application to start Thunar with root privileges).

Do you have a link where I can download them from instead of installing a package to install an icon set?

Each filename usually is a link to the file or external package.

I'm really liking the icons, it goes very well with the black-white look I'm going for. Thank you. Made an account to say that.

Do you have or are you planning icons for:
Arch distro logo
Eclipse IDE
Qt Creator IDE
Firefox (black and white)
Synergy

Or if you have a general guide (border widh etc) on making new icons, I can make few myself.

Hi AndfRa,

Thanks for your appreciation and comments. I have not yet included those, but I will try to include these in the next update (1.4).

In general I make most icons 48x48 pixels (scalable), with the icon itself 40x40 and the white border 4 by 4 pixels around the image.

Exactly what I was looking for, good work.
I noted some slight issues related with power and battery stuff. Please have a look:
http://s1275.photobucket.com/user/cadhart/library/icons
Icons on the first screenshot is ok. On the second Battery Monitor icon is xfce default. On the third power icons in tray and menu seems like appeared for dark background. There are also some glitches with microphone icons. As for the rest, this minimalistic icon collection is awesome.

Hey Cadhart,

Thanks for your comments and feedback! I just got back from holidays, my apologies for the late reply.

I crashed my laptop two weeks ago (it ran too hot, broke the fan :-) so cannot check your errors.

But in two weeks I will get my new fan, and I will also install Xubuntu to the latest version. Then I will check your feedback, and also update the Icon theme in general.

Hi Cadhart,

I fixed the battery monitor, it should look ok now. Regarding the power manager, I could not reproduce this error. My power manager looks ok now (under Xubuntu 13.04). If the problem still persists after the upgrade to treepata 1.1, let me know. I might know what the issue (and fix) is.
