Description:

A dark clean theme easy for the eyes. A fork of magnusuther's Smokikon, released under a GPL. I remade a lot of the icons, corrected a few and added a lot. This is a work in progress, i will continue to update, adding mimetypes and apps. Please do comment, criticism is welcome. There are alternate start-here icons in places. If you want an app added do ask.
Is not a "only scalable" theme.

If you downloaded from deviantart, extract the file, then extract it again. You can copy that folder to /home/youruser/.icons or you can compress it as a .tar.gz and drag and drop into appearence.

I'm sorry for this trouble, but it has to do with deviantart. If you find trouble installing, i'll be glad to help.

Thanks for downloading and please, enjoy >=D

IMPORTANT:
I am thinking of getting rid of the grey boxes for the arrows in controls. I want to now what do you think about it.

-----------
I was offline for a while. This iconset is close to an STABLE release.

Hey just wanted to let you know that tons of links in your theme are dead. This happens with Nautilus linking. The links should be created with terminal, example "ln -sf firefox.png firefox-3.0.png" and so on. You wont be able to notice the broken links on your own system as the path is valid, but change user account or move the original icons location and you will see the problem.

Hi. Well thanks for the notice. I was not sure about releasing this update, since i am currently redoing all the symlinking. (By ln, not nautilus). For mere guide purposes, i merged gnome base iconset with Smokikons, to find out what symlinks and icons i was missing. So, i guess some of the pasted symlinks went to hell. Excuse this crappy release, please, and be patient, as i am currently working on it, as a full gnome icon theme.

Is this normal that next/prev/back/forward/ evolution/firefox icons are not working?

Well, evolution's "new mail", "next mail"... etc should not work because the don't exist. But the forward and back buttons as well as the stop buttons work in my install. Keep in mid i always install the exact same tarball i upload. Also, firefox is working flawlessly in my pc, with nearly every icon working. So, check out if something is wrong there, because the should work.

Also, i included most icons you requested, feel free to suggest more, but the obscure apps like gnomeradio ant tvtime, i could't find the right path so if they don't work just manually set them for now.

I will install myself this apps, and correct, if necessary. Also, i am going to include the evolution controls, for version 0.9, as well as block screen and shutdown.

well, i never tought this iconset could be liked for so many people, because it doesn't follow the conventional style. I'm glad so many of you downloaded it, the ones who liked it, and the ones who don't. Before voting bad, please, comment, tell me what you dislike. I don't care if it's just "I hate the icon theme fully". Well, celebrating this, i will Update this sunday. I have already remade over 13 icons, (including the volume icon v3 xD) and added mimetypes, and apps. I want to elevate this number up to 30ish. Thanks for your support! and please, do comment!

What's with the hate on this? It looks great, fills in a lot of holes from the original Smokikon.

haha... i blame some trouble i had last night with the links, they said "not found" tough the link was good. so, people instead of reporting it to me, voted down. Also, some people might aswell just hate it, and vote bad. Anyway, i'm glad you like it, last night when i got down 10% i looked at my desktop. And said... anyway, looks pretty decent for me. xD

Just go to your top panel,

System---->Preferences---->Appearance

then drag and drop the file in the window that pops up. Then choose "Apply this theme"

That should do it.
