ABOUT
GNOME icon theme built from the Oxygen icon theme, with custom icons for those missing.

Been searching for a beautiful GNOME icon theme? This could be it!

Give your GNOME a breath of fresh Oxygen

VERSIONS
Full theme
This uses the full resolution SVGs to create smaller icons, like those at 16x16 - 24x24.

I think these look better, although they may be less recognisable at small resolutions.

See screenshot 1 for a taste.

Full theme - small
This uses the SVGs designed for lower resolutions for sizes 16x16 - 24x24, etc.

The icons will be less detailed with darker outlines and as a result are usually more distinguishable.

See screenshot 2 and note the icons in the side pane, to see what I mean.

Nautilus CD Burner super-combo expansion pack
Icons for the CD burning animation when burning an ISO through Nautilus (see screenshot 3).

Oxy-GNOME INSTRUCTIONS
Substitute "[version]" for the version you're using, i.e. oxy-gnome-080526.tar.bz2

1) Download the version you want.
2) Extract it to your home directory:
mkdir ~/.icons
tar -xvjpf oxy-gnome-[version].tar.bz2 -C ~/.icons/

3) System -> Preferences -> Appearance
4) Customise theme
5) Select 'oxy-gnome' under 'Icons'
6) Enjoy!

Nautilus CD Burner INSTRUCTIONS
1) Download the tarball.
2) As root, backup old icons
sudo cp -a /usr/share/nautilus-cd-burner /usr/share/nautilus-cd-burner/old
3) As root, extract it to the Nautilus share directory:
sudo tar -xvjpf oxy-gnome-[version]-nautilus-cd-burner.tar.bz2 -C /usr/share/nautilus-cd-burner/
3) Burn an ISO to disk using Nautilus (right click)
4) Enjoy!

SOURCE
SVGs are provided separately as they are big (except for nautilus-cd-burner).

If you want, download them and extract them into your ~/.icons/ directory (as above) - the theme will automatically use them if a required size is missing.

TODO
Fix other issues that come up - please contact me if you have any requests!

CAVEAT
I'm not a graphic designer (Inkscape? What's Inkscape?), but I did my best. Let me know if something is missing or if you design better icons

Finally, thank you to the Oxygen team and apologies for hacking up their lovely icons..

Great icons!

What is that window decor you are using? Looks like a Human blue theme.

Hi!
Could you remove the distro oxygen icon from the theme? It sucks a bit! Otherwise, great port!

Well, sorta.

I was having some lockup problems with Ubuntu 8.04 so I went back to 7.10. Installed the theme and all of my changes are there.

So, thank you for your time and help. It has been much appreciated.

Sorry for the delayed response, been busy at work.

Not sure why it wouldn't work on Hardy, it does for me. I haven't tested it with GNOME 2.20, but good to hear it works :)

First, thanks for all of your hard work and help. I have found that I can now import my png files I want to use and save them as svg's without issue. So, I added those to your theme.

But, I still have the same problem. Like I stated earlier, I don't have any blue folders in my version anywhere. But yet they show up. How can that be? Do you have any thoughts?

...and a question.

Whenever I go in and make changes to the set, my icons actually get SMALLER. Any thoughts as to why that might happen?

Also, how did you go from svg to png?

Thanks.

Peace be with you.

If you don't have the SVGs in the theme folder, then GNOME will have to use the closest PNG to the icon size required. For example, I did not include 48x48 icons for 'places' (the folder icons, etc) so those on the desktop will look small as GNOME has to downscale to 32x32 or similar.

This is not a problem if you have the SVGs as GNOME will just use these to generate the correct size.

I will fix this in the next release by including 48x48 size icons for 'places'.

As for the SVGs, there is an svg library which can convert to png, it's called librsvg2, or you can use inkscape.

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks for the reply. I thought as much so I created my own 'places' folder for all of the sizes, but it still only uses the smaller icons. It's strange. I changed most of the folders to be a manilla folder but they still show up as blue. I have no blue folders but network folders.

I'll try the lib file. What command do I use to convert the sources to png?

I use inkscape on the command line:

Quote:inkscape --file=[svg] --export-png=[png] --export-width=[px] --export-height=[px]

That should work :)

A great theme. Very thought out. You have managed to integrate a lot of good things that most seem to over look. I am in the process of using this as the foundation for a more Ubuntu-centric theme. Thank you for all of your hard work in porting this to Gnome.

An Icon Theme should have a valid .theme file among its files and aim to be complete for desktop use under Gnome or KDE Plasma.

If it contains only a single icon or a small set of icons, please use the Icon Sub-Sets or Single Icon/Logo categories instead.
