Description:

Smooth iconset for KDE -- Created using Adobe Illustrator 10. If anyone is interested in a window decoration/widget theme, and knows how to code it, let me know -- It's already being done for GTK/Metacity, and all it needs is someone to transfer the look to QT/KWin.

I like this icon theme very much, but I am missing a symbol for kontact - will there be an update?

Thanks anyway, until then I can get along with the KMail icon ...

These are the most original of the finished icon sets I've seen here. There are several excellent sets, but they seem to be either explicitly or implicitly based on something else.

Excellent stuff!

This is in my opinion the most professional looking icon set out there, and I'll be using it for years to come.

My hat's off to you; thank you, and keep up the great work.

I registered just so that I could post a '*thanks*' for these icons. They're absolutely awesome. I bow down to your low-key understated work..

I like the icons, they look very nice.
Is it possible to get a pair of USB-Stick icons?

The archive is no good.

It has a gz extension but it's only a normal tar file. The directories are all bad as well.

To fix, copy the archive to your directory of choice (/tmp here) and execute the following (some commands may be wrapped here):

$ mkdir temp
$ cd temp/
$ tar xvf ../amaranth-default-.7.tar.gz
$ cd Amaranth/
$ rm -fr 128x128\\/ 16x16\\/ 22x22* 32x32\\/ 48x48\\/ 64x64\\/
$ mv ../16x16/ ../22x22/ ../32x32/ ../48x48/ ../64x64/ .
$ cd ..
$ tar cvzf Amaranth.tar.gz Amaranth/

You can now install the icons (Amaranth.tar.gz) using the archive you have just made.

I noticed that this archive was broken some time ago but nobody said anything, so here is the fix ;-)

Ok, ok, I confess. I tar'd and gzip'd the archive on windows (ahh!), and have since learned my lesson. New release (0.8) should be good! Thanks for pointing that out, though.

:-P I figured as much. Maybe if you must use win for that you could use GNU tar for win32?

Good stuff! Thanks again.

Actually, I've got some basic action icons done (~25) -- but I've been trying to upload them for a week to themes.freshmeat.net, and everytime I try, it fails. I'm really getting annoyed at this. If anybody has a little bit of space (and bandwidth) on which they could host this set, please let me know. In the meantime, I'll keep trying freshmeat! Thanks!

I love these, but why did you make a Kazaa Icon? Linux has its own p2p clients that are in DIRE need of good icons.

ed2k_gui, giFT, Gnutella, QTella.. etc.

Good point. Actually, KaZaA (lite) runs rather well under wine -- but yes, it's not for Linux. Anyway, there's a Gnutella and a QTella icon in the new release -- Personally, I am rather fond of the Gnutella icon. Use it. now.

Absapositively love this theme... very very professional.

Its very unique.. so the problem is inheriting from crystal or osX dosn't work too well.

I think the apps have just the right amount of color... so the mime-types/file-systems might look better with slighly more tinge.

Also, all the general desktop icons, e.g. home, trash, devices etc. could have similar quantity of color. For example, kfm_home looks grey-scale while trash, device icons are more colorful.

I am no artist... so trust ur judgement, you are doing a great job. It could very well be on the way to be the best icon theme out-there :)

The app icons look completely different from the rest, they look out of place. If they look more like the others i would defitinitely use these!
