Looks really nice. But some of the colors do not fit my taste, e.g. the spreadsheet icon has way too much pink and purple. But other icons are fantastic. I definitely love the trashcan and mozilla icons

PINK!!

What was I thinking?

I'll make sure that I change that before I release version 0.05. Sorry for the poor taste in colors.

BTW, I'm glad you like the rest of the set.

This Icon-Theme is really Great (In Fact, I don't like these Crystal Stuff)

Recently I tried Gorilla (which also is not too bad) but this evening I will try your New Theme

I don't think that news theme works with the latest versions of Super Karamba. What you're looking at is simply my own modification of the news theme that came with Karamba (not Super Karamba) 0.17. If I get some free time, maybe I can try and port them to Super Karamba.

I just installed the new v 0.3 set. Vrey nice! I really like the fact that it now has the install file - much easier.

I like your icons. Please continue to add to the set.

It's very nice, but it does lose a lot of te slick style, for example the folder icons don't match the style. However, it is very nice on it's own.

While I started with some of the ideas from Slick I have started to diverge a little towards my own style. If you would really prefer the folders to be more Slick-like, maybe I can work on that after I get icons made for few more of the major apps;)

BTW
I'm glad you like it

Maybe when I have the time I'll write that tutorial. For now I'll send you the development .xcf file so you can modify it till you're content. I consider all of my work to be GPL'd so feel free to redistribute it within the terms of the GPL.

Much better. The new file unzips and untars correctly.

One question though: how do I install thew new icons? I tried Control Center -> Look & Feel -> icons & install new theme - no joy. It says the archive is not an icon theme. ??

Currently I have an insufficient quantity of icons (only 30) to justify a fully installable set. Whenever I reach 50 icons I will scale everything, seperate them into types, and write an installation file.

If you want to use them right now, you can right click on an icon-->select properties-->and change the icon by selecting the image in the top left of the box that appears. You'll have to switch to other icons and move to wherever you unpacked the new icons at.

I hope this helps.

Your Icon set is great, it will be very good to KDE to have it.

Well done! I see you went ahead with posting these icons without spending a week in a half fretting over what to name it. I should learn how to do that. ;)

Your style appeals to me as a modernised Slick. Your surfaces are less metallic looking and more like the type of material they'd normally be made of, which is good--mostly. Currently, surfaces that look as though they are supposed to be reflective (like the KDE gear and the KMail icon's @ sign) don't have Slick's spotlight-like lustre, which is one of the main things I liked about Slick.

Good work so far, though a lot more shininess would be welcome.

I've now added more lustre (as of version 0.04), to several of my icons. I hope you like it;)

IMHO it is very nice iconset. The Firebird icon is really wonderful. Keep going. It would be successful set.
