Description:

t was april 2002 when I first started designing a little 48x48 icon and published it at kde-look.org.
It was an alternative “trashcan" for KDE 2. Since then I’ve continued designing icons and started many themes to increase my skills and improve design quality, these were: "Desktop icons", "Sky", "Lush" and finally "Nuvola".

It tooks me more than a year to reach version 1, the more professional, consistent and complete Nuvola theme ever released, it will turn your KDE in an eyecandy colourful desktop.

If you never tryed Nuvola what are you waiting? give it a try! For the others waiting this release since a long time… download Nuvola 1.0 now!

Have fun and enjoy your desktop!

Your icon set is awesome, but I recommend going back to your original house icon. The green flat one just isn't doing it for me. Thanks buddy. Keep up the good work!

I hate it when people ask this question, but... what font (and font size) are you using in that screenshot? I looks good.

Thanks for the awesome icons!! Great work!

First of all, let me say that your icons are the greatest. I like them very much.

But I've been getting errors in my .xsession-errors file. The error is:

kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon directory /home/eric/.kde/share/icons/nuvola/ group not valid.

Do you know what could be the cause of this?

No I don't know. It is a well know bug and I think it happens with user installed icon themes.

Ok,so i installed Nuvola as root and set all permissions as needed.Now i get
"kdecore (KIconLoader): WARNING: Icon directory /usr/share/icons/nuvola/ group not valid" in my xsession-errors.And load of icons are missing,i mean there are icons that must replace a default crystal but they don't... Very sad,man,i love Nuvola so much.

this is a known bug and still unsolved.
I think appens to all icon themes installed by user.

I've noticed that the KSystemTray stretches the icons from their actual 16x16 icon size to 24x24 causing them to appear poor quality..especially noticable is the Klipper and Kopete icons...they look fuzzy.

I looked up the KSystemTray API and it looks like it's trying to display them at 24x24 (http://developer.kde.org/documentation/library/3.3-api/kdeui/html/classKSystemTray.html)

Maybe you could release a 24x24 size as well?

Or maybe you know what's actually going on.

love the icons

I looked into the KSystemTray API a bit more...it seems the icon being loaded into the tray is indicated at application level. Thus being the reason why some systemtray icons appear to be crisp and others not i.e. Klipper, Kopete

From what I can tell this is more of a KDE bug then Nuvola problem ;)

From your website I downloaded the gnome package but it doesn't appear to be the most recent one? I love them in KDE but I use gnome off and on as well....

well, the gnome-themes-extra is a little outdated, I'll update it when I find the time. I was thinking if it was possible to do a png version for gnome using the latest icons of rc1

That would be great, I hate not using these Icons when in gnome, but want the latest version :(

I tried to install nuvola, you know, by clicking on the little
sign and everything, but it says
"The file is not a valid icon theme archive!"

I have konq's icons at 22x22, and the back and forward icons have become much smaller with this release, possibly 16x16? Is there a reason/fix for this?

Great icons by the way!

I've scaled down them intentionally.
This beacuse they were too big, they were touching the button frame in konqueror toolbar

What are your limitations on these icons under the lgpl?

I tried to get permission from the creator of Crystal SVG. He said no. I will give any credit that you require. I also would be willing to pay you a fairly resonable fee. Im new to these licences, its alot to take in.
