NEWS: (02.23.05) Momo has offered to host both Gorilla & Korilla, so for the time being both will stay up on kde-look. If anyone out there would like to start a rework on these projects, just let me know... Thanx Momo!

This is the icon theme I always find myself coming back to. It is just brilliant. In fact I also love the look of the whole desktop and panel in the preview photos. Think I'll have to track down that cool font!

It's called KIndustrial... But I don't think the guy ever made a version for KDE 3.2 though? Damn shame too, because it's one of my favorite KWin Theme's...

Very cool, these icons (along with the wallpaper and window-dec in your screenshot) are a nice eye-catching alternative to acqua/liquid.

I love these icons, but two icons should be replaced. The icons for "New Tab" and "Close Tab" in Konqueror do not really make sense to me.

I downloaded the file and checked to see if it was corrupt and found it to be working fine? Maybe you should try downloading it again?

Here is a list of howto's for installing themes - http://www.kde-look.org/help/index.php

I hope this help!

surfdoc: I use Lindows 4 too, seems that lindows doesnt like the .desktop file.

Here is what u do. Untar the the file and copy the folder Kool.Gorilla too /usr/share/icons/
Now you can change the icon theme too Korilla in the config center.

The kside pictures for the menu can be copied to: /usr/share/apps/kicker/pics

The Splash pictures in:/usr/share/apps/ksplash/pics

The excelent Childs play font can be installed with the Font Installer located somewhere in the config center.(i think in Config center>System)

Note that most icons get changed but you need to set things like GAIM and Gimp icons manually. Good Luck :)


I really like this theme, looking very good. Maybe someone can complete it with bootsplash, mozilla theme etc? I wish i could, but im not this good with pictures :) Anyway, just a suggestion.

Your icons and fonts are great! Nice work and thanks for posting the fonts!

I'm new to instlling fonts so it took a bit to figure out how to do it. The instructions are found under "xfree86", and not KDE as I initially guessed. For the next newbie, you can find great font install instructions at: http://www.xfree86.org/current/fonts2.html#9

Very nice icons! Mind if I use two of them (queue.png and mail_generic.png) in a karamba widget that I'm working on? It's also GPLed.

Thanks!

why dont you change the folders colors? i still have some folders in that strange brownish color as in the original gorilla. i was thinkin your theme wants to get rid of that awful brown colors. the shapes of gorilla rock but the colors...
...i was hoping korilla would give same nice colors to the nice iconset. what happened?

Korilla and Gorilla, what makes them different? All the things that are orange or orangish brown in Gorilla such as the symlinks, stock icons, etc... are blue in Korilla. Thats the only real difference... I am always happy to hear peoples opinions on the subject though and I do feel that at some point the folders in Korilla will need a make over, it is just not a top priority at this point.

Maybe in the future I will change the default icon color to gray, dark blue, or bluish gray. What do you think? What color would you like to see the default folder icons changed too? Thanx!
