Crystal Clear
Icon Themes
Description:

Dear KDE Folks,

I have the pleasure to announce the new phase of Crystal Icon Theme that from now on will be called Crystal Clear. There are a lot of changes! Hundreds of new icons, support to the most known KDE games, and a lot of new things. The design style also was improved and updated to be more competitive with the market operational systems as well as the upcoming systems. I hope you like it!

As always I would like to thank some important people:

1- All the KDE users that always have supported my work and make my working nights really worth.
2- Linspire for the financial support of this project (you may not believe, but I have to eat so I keep living).
3- Nullmid, RELIO owner that kindly host online my projects.
4- God, for have gave me life and make all things possible.

Everaldo

What about the launch button on the Kmenue? I did not find it in the theme I downloaded.

Is it something extra? How to get it, the KDE menue launch button is lame.

When I first installed KDE I was looking for an iconset in my taste. Crystal came. Now I started to look for a new iconset, and I found this. You are a bloody genious.

Hi, when I set the panels to "small", I get very small icons compared to Crystal SVG. It is really annoying. It is because there's no "scalable" directory in your icon theme package. Will you include one please?
BTW, I like your icon theme very much :)

No, it's because of a bug of the theme config files. But I forgot how one could fix it.

I'm confused - what license are these icons distributed under?

This posting claims that they are distributed under the LGPL.

But when I visit everaldo.com to download the exact same collection of icons, and view the legal page there, it claims that all of the icons are protected; that only one copy can be downloaded; that they cannot be modified or redistributed.

No license information is included inside the tar.gz file, so I'm not certain which license statement to trust.

Thanks,

Yeah, what license?
I hope that the "copyright" clause applies only to the site design.
Until Everaldo answers, we are stuck in the nowhere.

But why KDE still uses Crystal SVG? Could it be the license? (since they couldn't remove the Linspire branding, which AFAIK still is there)

After some more web research, I think I know the answer to this question.

The icons are LGPL. Here is everaldo's statement on the matter: http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-artists&m=111947174930644&w=2

However, the KDE artists group apparently made a decision in the past that they only want to use icons in vector format. To an artist, the vector format is the "source code" that allows them to modify the icon, and they don't want to use icons in KDE unless they can redistribute these vector files for people to modify in the future.

If you read through the entire thread, you'll see that there was a lot of controversy over that decision even within the KDE artist community. Some people felt that PNG files were an acceptable choice. Others felt that PNG wasn't the "preferred format" for editing an icon, which conflicted with the LGPL requirements. Ultimately, they decided to stick with vector format icons.

I'm a non-artist, looking for icons to make my open source program look nicer. I wouldn't know how to work with vectors anyway, so for me, PNG is the preferred format for editing the icons. That being true, there should be no legal reason why the PNG files can't be modified and redistributed via LGPL. The KDE artists have a different "preferred format" for editing the file, but that't their preference, not mine.

So the bottom line is that everaldo is giving these icons away as LGPL. People are free to modify and redistribute them in PNG format under the LGPL license.

Thank you, everaldo, for all the work you've done. As an open source developer, I've also gotten critisized a few times by third parties who want me to use a different license. But don't let that get to you. The work you've done is not only beneficial to KDE, but is also a huge factor in helping encourage the broader adoption of Linux and open source technologies. We couldn't get there without you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I think it's weird that the windeco hasn't gotten it's own entry here at kde-look.org! Also, I had a hard time finding and downloading the windeco, and when I did, it didn't look ANYTHING like the screenshot :/

Help!
