I can pay for a extensive-downloaded file like this iconset, so i will appreciate any help (a server to store my files freely -or not-). Thanks for the support.

First, and most important:
I DON'T WISH TO RIVALIZE with Crystal icons! Crystal are the KDE 3.1 deffault icons and a great (and intensive) job.
Simply: Everaldo created their own prefered icons, and i created my own prefered icons. Of coure, in some aspects they are similar, and some of the icons can be used in booth sets. I respect a lot the Everaldo's job and i dislike the messages 'this is best than...'
My icons are different, and the diversity are good. Simply enjoy the icons, the Crystal, the OSX like, my icons or others ;)

Second, and maybe more important: thanks for your comments, they are very constructive!
-About the 'pale' or 'comic aspect' (surelly there's a lot of people with this tought): i make the icons with the style that i like. Don't worry, other 3 icon variations (more contrasted are on the way).
-Have you reason: the xmms icon are bad designed. This and others i see bad designed will be redesigned. Sorry for the Mozzilla icon, but i created this icon very different to others (i always seen the same Mozilla design).
DON'T HESITATE if there's to comunicate a bad designed icon!
-Thanks for the missing icons! Some of them (Netscape, Opera) are not released just for the reason you are commented: the download is very high!
-Maybe i will release the 128x128 sizes a part (or with a higher version). I don't like the big downloads, but this is due to the big of icons to make a complete set for KDE!

Carlitus,

I would like to welcome you to Linux. I have been watching you, and I love your talented and original work.
In this GNU (new) world, you can be the designer of new desktops, not just a mod, but the default look.
Crystal started as a Conectiva linux theme, but now it is growing with KDE.
Use Linux, use KDE, Gimp, KOffice, Open Office, they are wonderfull programs! Hopefully Karbon 14 will be an option in the future for SVG (hint, hint ;).
Take a little bit of time to understand Linux. You will love it.
And keep the good work! I hope to see it in millions of desktops!

Welcome!

I think that i need to feel comfortable to use another OS.
I not completelly 'switched' to Linux, but actually it is more friendly than past times. For this reason i tried to make a iconset for KDE.
I'm a designer and a hobbyist icon designer, and i'm glad when my icons are enjoyed.
About Linux, the wellcome comments, here and via e-mail are very friendly. Not only the kind 'nice icons'. I agree (maybe more than good comments) the constructive comments: 'these icons are missing' or 'configuration file are incomplete'... this helps me to make better jobs. On windows customization world there's a lot of friendly people, but i find more 'answers' on Linux (more answers on Linux just in one day than WIndows in one month).
I have no panic to Linux. If i not used intensively before is due to uncomplete installs. This aspect has changed ;)
The highest inconvenient (for me) to use principally Linux, is the low average on graphics manipulation programs. Yes, i not used a lot the Gimp, i know. Afortunatelly, there's a lot of good 'vector' programs (OpenOffice too!), and KDE is a great chance for me to create vectorial icons!

Thanks for your wellcome message!

Good work! In my opinion not very functional for everyday use but like the crystal set, I will definitely keep them on my hard drive for the benefit of visiting windows/mac fans and perhaps prospective girl friends ;).

do you also have Mandrake? its, because this Icon Set certainly does not replace the Mandrake special icons... but I wonder, that it seems to resize them...

i use Suse 8.0 (downloaded via ftp), but i will not release any special icons for a distro. There's a lot of them around, and i don't know any distro's special icons. For example, suse have lots of specially made icons (still and animated) for menus, YAST, control panels, etc.
I will try to change the configuration to keep the KDE standard icons, but nor for any Linux distribution.
In time, i will post the Noia sources. On this time, anyone can make their own Noia icons, of course.

I think, everything to say about this fantastic Icon Theme, is already said above. But because it's so nice: Hey, it's really wonderull!!
But there missing still some Icons, not? The "KDE-Trobber" in the right Corner of Konqi is just a Questionmark :-( Also some Icons in Kcontrolcenter are missing.
At the moment I like it much more than Crystal, but it causes just of useing Crystal Icons for such a long time. Maybe, in 2 or 3 Month after useing Noia, i'd prefer Crystal? Who knows ;-)

I'm new in Linux, and i'm very surprised when i downloaded and installed the Everaldo's Crystal icons.
This is a very professional icon set, and specially made for KDE desktop.

My icons aren't better than Crystal icons, and viceversa. Simple there's personal preferences, and i created the Noia icons based on my personal preferences.

Crystal icons are a start to create new icons for KDE, and very well designed too!

You can try this to convert all your 64x64 icons into 48x48 :-)

find -name '*.png' -exec convert -resize 48x48 {} {} \;


You need to have ImageMagick installed, which I believe you probably have.

These ARE really nice icons. Not my type, but they are very nice. Keep up the good work. What's with all icons these days being "shiny" though? I *love* Crystal, etc, don't get me wrong, but I wish more people would make flat icons too - like Gnome's. But, beggers can't be choosers, and since I don't have the skills to make them myself, I will gladly take whatever comes my way :)

Thanks for your comment!
Of course, any user have their own preferences.
I like the ximian svg icons too, and many others (the Crystal icons, for example).
The only kind of icons that i don't like are the 'squared' or '45 degres isometric'; on the past all icons are squared or isometric, due to the 1 bit alphamask (curved designs are always thooted on 1 bit alphamask graphics). Actually, the modern OSes allows the use of antialiasing and transparencies.
