K Button -> Configure Panel -> Preferences

A dialog box will pop up and in te left column, "Panel" should be selected. On the "Positon" tab, look for the "length" configuration group at the bottom. Note that you need a recent version of KDE for this (don't know how recent, but I'm guessing 3.0+)

Good luck.

This theme is impressive because it is so original. That brings me to my only gripe which is the arrow buttons look out of place beside that awesome home button. I guess it is the round button look. Maybe if the arrows were more noia-ish without the round background.

I wouldn't worry about making the icons follow user interface guidlines because that is so subjective. An image that means web-browser to me doesn't necessary mean the same to everyone else.

Does anyone know how to install the icons? I downloaded it and got noia\16x16\actions, apps etc and same for 22x22, 32x32 etc. When I go into control center and click the open folder am I opening each sub folder or the main root folder? Seems like there should be a specific file that I should be opening not opening a path. I've tried typing the path into the edit box and selecting install theme/add but the text box just clears. What am I doing wrong??? The folders contain loads of .png files and I can see the icons in Konqueror.

If you wish to use these icons as Iconset for KDE, open the icon themes dialog, search for the 'noiaXXX.tar.gz' file (XXX means the version) then click Install et voila.
You don't need to untar the file to use the iconset.
Untar if you only wish to use the icons individually.

This is what I have in the text box:

I press install theme and then apply and nothing happens? Am I still doing something really stupid?

Here is some critique. Only my personal feelings, and I must say this iconset is among the top, thats why I commented so thoroughly :)

apps :

- hwinfo (too much difference from most sets, not obvious meaning)

- kcmdrkonqui (not very obvious what the icon symbolizes)

- kedit (looks like a gfx program, not an editor, probably because it looks like a brush, not a pencil)

- kmail (does not look like a mail app, more like a newspaper ?! the @ is not obvious enough, took me many views to understand)

- konqueror (looks too "generic" not specific, maybe add some "land" on the globe?! something like the locale icon would do well :)

- kpackage (looks like a rubiks cube game, not a package.. the package feeling is not obvious enough. Maybe more similar to package ?)

- package_settings (what is the meaning of this icon? aha, a lever of some kind.. see below)

devices :

- cdwriter (could this be better red ? red as for burning / flame colour ?)

filesystems :

- exec (looks like settings ? maybe a gear style icon would be better here ?)

mimetypes :

- deb (does not look like it belongs with the others)

- message (same as the kmail icon really, not clear enough it is a mail we are talking about)

- pdf (what is the meaning of this icon ?)

- recycled (not obvious meaning)

- rpm (again like deb, does not look like it belongs with the other icons)

- shellscript (what is the meaning of this ?)

- source (not clear meaning?)
(better with language icons on top, makes it very obvious..)

- source_pl (making the pearl a different colour would enhance the effect I think?)

- tar (same as with the kpackage icon, not clearly enough looking like a package)

- vcard (looks more like an expansion PCI card than a businesscard?)

General comments :

Settings control knobs do not look good when there is only one knob, two (like remote.png) looks much better

The different editor icons are maybe a little bit too different ?

Could the key look clearer if it was a brighter colour ?

requests :

please please can we have a kvim / vim icon and a phoenix icon ?


Thanks for creating this, I am not using it now, but could very well do at some point ! :)

I love it. Good job, well done.

For kde, I think we might need a new icon to substitute the animated K icon in konqueror. I would like to see some new icons like battery (for laptop), volume (kmix), clipper, korganizer, those have small icons in the panel. I also like the lock and logout buttons in the panel to be colored. If you can add new icons for staroffice, xine and phoenix, that will be great.

Thank you very much for your excellent work.

I noticed that you haven't included a "throbber" for konqueror. I was able to take some of the icons you have done and throw together my own "throbber" (for 32x32, I didn't do 22x22 because I don't use it, and I only have so much free time :)). It's available at:
http://home.cogeco.ca/~5thshadow/kde.png
You can probably do something better, but in the interim here's something for all those people who are looking for a decent throbber to go with your amazing icons :)

(Oh yeah: just put it in the noia/32x32/actions directory.)

Have you reason. This icon set are intended to have a clear design, and very simplified (to be viewed correctly at lower sizes)... but mi first intention isn't this...
I'm a OSX user, and i'm very habituated to high icon sizes. These icons are 'thinked' with high icon sizes in mind.
I discovered that lots of Linux users prefer smaller sizes (maybe for see more files using lists), and the K menu shows very little sized icons (sometimes defocused).
I will try to fix small sizes (sharpening them), or make smaller versions for those icons with a design too many 'charged' for small sizes.
Anyway, this icon size is created specially for higher sizes, and it uses lots of curves (that makes hard their identification on smaller sizes).
I accept if this icon set don't likes to some users (or a lot)... my last intention is to change the use of KDE desktop, only to change a bit.

Ok.
There's some Kapps missing.
Icons for applications will be released with a downloadable apart (phoenix, etc.).
But i like to make icons for all KDE applications
You commented me the KDevelop, and it will be created. Let me know if there's any other K app missing icon.
Thanks

You said: "Now it's time to say wich are the bad designed icons."

Well, most of them are good or excellent! The only ones I struggle a bit to figure out are KMail's reply, reply all and forward icons. What are the grey shapes in the background? Envelopes? The arrows on them are a little hard to see as well, the arrow design looks _very_ good in Konqueror, but at this size maybe a more simple design would be better?

Thanks for bringing Noia to KDE.

These are one of the BEST iCONS i have seen in a long while. however Using RH8 with KDE 3 i have run into something strange.
Whenever i go into Konquerer file manager the Blue folders look normal as they should but then when my mouse rollsover the Icons change to the 'open folder' icon from the iKONS theme included in KDE3. Can Someone Help Me???

Other than That These truly are Super Icons. Keep up the good work
