(FOR A KDE3 VERSION GO HERE:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Reflektions?content=85854)

This is a version of the KDE4 port of the "Reflektions"icons.

This icon theme is a compilation of a few icon themes and a few sparse icons
found on www.deviantart.com and www.kde-look.org, as well as a few that I made on my own. It is not complete yet
but hopefully (in time) it will be.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

The installation requires you run the included script. You MUST have the command "convert" available which is part of
imagemagick. You must also have the "tar" package installed. Make sure you have
both of the packages installed before you run the script.

1) Extract the downloaded file

2) cd Reflektions_KDE4/

3) click on click_to_install


NOTES:

***NOTE FOR SYSTRAY ICONS:***

The systray icons of KDE 4.5 series use by default the plasma-theme icons, which do not match the Reflektions set.
If you wish to have this theme's systray icons, follow the instructions that will pop out after the script has run.

*** FIREFOX ***

I have created a stylish script for firefox 4 (only) which will make it use your current KDE icon set. See here for more details:

http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Firefox4+with+KDE4+icon+set+?content=141275


HOW TO GET THE CONKY CONFIG FILE:

I have uploaded my conky config file -- rename it to .conkyrc and put it on your home folder. You will definitely have to make some changes to adjust the configuration to your monitor.

The weather forecast requires a bit of work to get it working. Instructions can be found here:

Good luck!

Hi,
I tried installing Reflektions on Kubuntu 12.10 with KDE 4.10. Everything seems fine except for the Dropbox panel icons.
I get:

mkdir: cannot create directory `Reflektions': File exists
cp: cannot stat `/home/angel/.dropbox-dist/icons/hicolor/16x16/status': No such file or directory
cp: target `/home/angel/.dropbox-dist/icons/hicolor/16x16/status/' is not a directory

Hello. Yeah, I just noticed the same problem in my desktop too, even though the dropbox icon in my panel is the one from the Reflektions theme.

I will post back when I figure out what is happening. Thanks for bringing this to my attention:)

Hey again,

I think it is not necessary anymore to install the dropbox icons. Did you try restarting dropbox, or logging out to see if the correct panel icon is used?

Report

r-angel

Thanks for the quick reply!
Yes, since installing I restarted my PC several times already so logging in and out isn't the issue.
Just to clarify again, the drop box icon in my Application Launcher is the Reflektions one, the problem is with the icon on the system tray.

Hey, I uploaded a new version. Can you download and run just the install_dropbox script please? Let me know how it goes.

Report

r-angel

No that didn't work either.
In the end I just searched my system for all dropbox files and found out that these icons are in

/var/lib/dropbox/.dropbox-dist/icons/hicolor/16x16/status/

on my system, so I replaced them with the Relfektions icons and now it works fine.

Thanks again!

Hmm, in my system, the directory '.dropbox-dist/...' is actually in my home folder. The script in fact does exactly what you did, goes to the dropbox directory in the home folder and replaces those icons with the reflektions ones.

Anyway, I am glad you sorted things out :)

...may I also ask for some icons in next update ;)?

Krusader, KMyMoney, Yast, hotot

And whats wrong with Konversation icon for example?! The konversation icon is there in .kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme/Reflektions/icons/konversation.svg but isn't used in the KMenu entry (what's wrong!? Are the png's missing in the genrated icon theme?). Same with dolphin icon.

I like reflektions, and using it with bespin is a great idea. I think a few icon additions such as kteatime in the system tray (one of my favorites) would be great. Also, integration of yawp plasmoid with the icon set would be nice. I also have the skype icon in the system tray and clementine icon not being the same (converts to original colourful version) when it is active.

Have a look at version 1.51, kteatime is there. Also, clementine in my computer appears correctly, i.e. the monochrome version.

Regarding yawp, it seems that the weather icons are hard-coded which means the only way to match the icons with the reflektions theme is to replace the original icons in the source code and build yawp from scratch.

Similarly for Skype, only in that case we do not even have the source code...

I just tried the update with kteatime, sweet. I do still have the problems with clementine, when I pin it to the icon tasks, it is monochrome. When I start, clementine icon becomes colourful original version. It is monochrome in the system tray though, I can confirm this. I am making a local installation of reflektions icon set, perhaps it is related to this but I really can't figure out what is wrong.

I have another problem with vlc, its icon is reflektions monochrome but when I start it, the icon changes to colorful original one both in the system tray and icon tasks manager. I guess it may be a problem similar to that of skype and yawp?

I also hope that you could add rsibreak icon and tomatoid plasmoid (another personal favorite) to the reflektions.

I forgot to mention a few more icons mainly from kdeedu packages, namely cantor, kalgebra, kig, parley kwordquiz etc. and perhaps lyx. Addition of these icons to Reflektions would be great.

And a few more additions like calligra office suite (words, kexi, krita etc.); skrooge, tellico, goldendict, qstardict would be very nice.

Regarding VLC, yes it has the same issue as yawp. I am not really sure what is happening with clementine, I will have to check it.

The icons you asked for, hopefully I will have them ready for the next release :)

Thank you, if you could add a few more icons for the qtdesigner, kid3, kmplot, marble; I guess the reflektions icon set would be reasonably complete.

When i installed the reflektions icon theme, it modified the default theme and replaced the systray icons. How can I get the original icons back?
