Gorgeous!

Could I ask for a version of Shiki's Hope with Ambient buttons that work on the left hand side, or would that be too much? :) - May 27 2011

Thanks for adding the Faenza-Darkest icons! Now I don't need to rely on 3rd party icons anymore. :)

Something you may have overlooked are the 16×16px network strength icons. These are still black. - Mar 22 2011

I just saw the weather icons for Humanity Lucid. Very nice! - Feb 16 2010
Oh, and a better looking weather-fog icon to replace the ugly square one in the GNOME icon set. - Feb 07 2010

These are icons are just so... lickable! :D Keep them coming, they're absolutely amazing.

Suggestions:
- Deluge needs go-top and go-bottom in size 16. As it is now, they're a bit blurry.
- F-Spot could use an elementary icon. - Feb 07 2010

I'm sure it's possible, but I'd have to find a Windows PC with Pidgin installed to see where it keeps the custom smileys.

I'll give you the instructions when and if I find out. - Jan 30 2010
Go to Tools>Custom Smileys.
Find and select the :s smiley in the list.
Click Modify...
Change shortcut text to :S
Click Save.

I hope this helps. - Sep 12 2009
Try :s (no capital).

Unfortunately, I can't assign multiple shortcuts to one smiley.

If you prefer to type :S with capital, you can change it yourself by using the "Manage custom smileys" button. - Aug 31 2009
Thanks!
It's something I've been thinking of doing for a long time. And then I finally did it. :) - Aug 28 2009

Would you (or someone else reading this ;)) consider making a Pidgin buddy list theme to compliment New Wave? - Jan 10 2010
.gtp is a GNOME Theme Package. Double clicking it in a GNOME environment installs all the elements of the theme. So yes, it makes sense to distribute it like this to all distros.

A separate download with just the GTK theme for Xfce distros would be nice though. - Jan 01 2010
Aha, sorry. I just meant that before upgrading to Jaunty, I still had an older version installed. Upgrading made me notice the new version. :) - Jun 16 2009
I absolutely love this theme!
Nice improvements in the version that ships with Jaunty too.

Keep it up! :) - May 18 2009
This is a very nice, clean theme. Easy on the eyes and with lots of attention to detail.
Somehow, you've managed to fix a lot issues I've had with other themes in my Xfce environment. I applaud your professionalism!

It goes very well with the Discovery icon set by the way.

One thing I'd like to note is that checkboxes jump up and down when you move your mouse pointer over them, but radio buttons don't. Is this intentional? I would have expected them to act the same. (I do love the jumping checkboxes, though. Very original. :) ) - Oct 18 2008

Why did you change the joystick to cards? The joystick looked much better to me. Plus, the Games category is for more than just card games.
If it is because you think a joystick is outdated, may I suggest a gamepad instead? - Sep 28 2009
Perfect!

Thanks again for all your great work on this icon set. - Aug 03 2009
Oops, I should have thought of that.

You are right, it's GNOME-Do's doing. - Jul 05 2009
Now that most of the categories icons have been updated (good job btw! looks very nice), the Internet one looks a bit bland. A slightly more 3D look or shinier continents should make it fit in a bit better, I think. - Jul 05 2009
Using version 5.0, Nautilus now gets the home folder icon in GNOME-Do Docky, instead of the file browser (cabinet) icon. Is this because of something you've changed, or is it to do with the new version of GNOME-Do that I also just installed? - Jul 05 2009
This boils down to personal preference of course, but I've never really cared for the hard hat programming icon. Have you considered using a trowel instead? - Jun 25 2009
Hmm.. Maybe the vibrant version with a duller stroke?

I'm sure you'll figure something out that works. :) - Jun 22 2009
I think a softer pink would look much better.

Something more like this maybe?
http://www.b3tards.com/u/842412241b81055b679d/pink.png

Maybe even a tad softer. - Jun 22 2009
Right you are. It was .thumbnails. Thanks! - Jun 21 2009
I just had the time to take the new Dust icons for a spin. They're absolutely delicious! I think I'll be using these instead of Human for now.

Some minor bugs I've noticed:

- The Shiki-Dust preview in Appearance Preferences still has the Caramel theme. And the Open folder icon is different from the other Shiki themes. (In fact, I believe it's all the other previews that are wrong in this regard.)
- The Download emblem is coloured orange, whereas it's coloured according to the theme in the other GNOME-Colors themes. Maybe it's best to pick one colour for all themes, as it seems to be the only emblem that still has different colours (except for the Desktop one of course). May I suggest red, as this it the colour chosen for the save icon and a downloads folder is used for saving things? - Jun 21 2009
Haha, of course. No rush. :)

I just wanted to throw the idea out there since you mentioned new icon sets. - Jun 20 2009
Loving version 4.0! Your work continues to amaze!

I think I've noticed some inconsistency in icons featuring a monitor. Most of them (vinagre, wmtweaks, preferences-desktop-remote-desktop and all the ones in the places folder) are coloured according to the theme, but others like preferences-desktop-wallpaper and checkbox are not.

Oh, and if you are taking suggestions for new colour themes, I think a pink version would look great and prove to be very popular. - Jun 20 2009
Ok, I'll just put my trust in your better judgement. :) I'm sure I'll get used to the new icon soon enough.

If I'm the only reason you're adding the Thunderbird icon, you needn't bother. I use webmail exclusively these days. So it's up to you. It may be better to treat all the Mozilla icons the same anyway. - Jun 15 2009
I'm not sure the Acrobat icon can really be considered a generic PDF icon. The only way to link it to PDFs is if you're already familiar with Acrobat. (Not having used Acrobat products for a couple of years now, it took me a while to realise where you got the new icon from.)

As you're citing trademark issues for the removal of the Mozilla icons, I think the Adobe icon might suffer from the same fate: http://www.adobe.com/misc/linking.html#producticons

And it would seem even worse to me to use Adobe's icon for a program that's not even theirs, as people might get the wrong idea.

I did notice the new Firefox icon. And while it's shiny and pretty, it doesn't fit in with the rest anymore. The main reason for me to use the GNOME-colors icon theme (apart from that it's absolutely gorgeous!) is the feeling of consistency it gives to my desktop. With every other icon breathing Tango, Firefox looks out of place now.

For this reason, I hope you'll reconsider putting the Tango Mozilla icons back in extras.

I hope my comments don't sound too harsh. I really don't mean them to be negative. I know 'text on the internet' can easily be misinterpreted that way. I just wanted to give my 2 eurocents worth of feedback and think you're doing a fantastic job! - Jun 15 2009
Hmm... I'm not sure replacing the Evince icon with an Adobe Acrobat Reader one is such a good idea? What's your reasoning behind this?

You said ``mozilla doesn't like custom icons, so it's better to do this in "extras"´´, but the extras-gnome-colors archive found here does not contain the Tango Firefox icons, nor does it have any Thunderbird icons. What do we do if we want the Tango icons back? - Jun 15 2009
Thank you! I found the picard and screenlets icons now.

Just wanted to repeat that you're doing a great job! - Jun 02 2009
I see where fipm is coming from though.
They're both red and round. When you're being quick and don't read the accompanying text, it's easy to click the wrong one. It doesn't help that their symbolic meaning isn't very obvious either.

Personally, I liked the shredder icon better too. It embodies the 'delete' and 'discard' actions much better than the Ø icon.

Alternatively, maybe you could make the cancel button octagonal, like the gtk-stop icon in the Discovery icon set?

Just throwing ideas out there. :) - May 31 2009
I absolutely love this set! It's amazing to see such consistently good icons all over the place. I'm never going to need another icon set again! :)

As for feedback:
(I'm using GNOME-Human 3.8.4 on Ubuntu Jaunty)

- Has the red USB stick icon for usb-creator been removed in recent versions?

- The picard icon doesn't show up in the main menu. (But it does on GNOME Do in Docky mode?)

- Icons you may consider adding are: mirage, texmaker, gtk-recordMyDesktop, ubuntu-tweak, screenlets and synapse. - May 31 2009

I absolutely love this theme!
Just one issue: when a checkbox appears in a selected area, the tick becomes too light and is hardly visible. See for examples: xfce4-autostart-editor, Ubuntu's update-manager or the Third Party Software tab in Synaptic's Software Sources. - Apr 04 2008

Here's a screenshot of what I mean: http://zeus.ugent.be/~strangequark/panelmanager.png.
On the left is MurrinaNeo-Gilouche, on the right is Clearlooks. As you can see, there's no way of telling where my panel's been fixed. - Jun 16 2007
It seems I've finally found a theme I'm sticking with. Good job! :)
I absolutely adore the inactive window effect! Maybe you could do something similar with the active windows? (A gradual move to blue?) Not sure how it would work out...

There's two issues I've noticed though (I'm using Xfce -- Xubuntu Feisty -- if it makes any difference):
  • I can't resize from the bottom of windows. My mousepointer doesn't change into the double arrow. This seems to be an issue of the Emerald theme.

  • There's no way of distinguishing between unpressed and pressed buttons. For example, in Xfce, when you right click on a panel, choose "Customise panel" and check "Fixed Position". There'll be 12 buttons to choose where you want to stick the panel, but there's no way of telling which of them has been selected. I hope that makes sense. :/ I guess I could send you a screenshot if needed.

  • Anyway, keep up the good work! - Jun 10 2007
