Description:

If you find the "Back" button in Konqueror a bit small and hence trouble some to click then use this single icon theme. You can also add other buttons like "Stop", "Home", "Reload" easily.

A small tribute for ease of use in KDE :)

They should think about adding this type of feature somewhere in the Control Panel or something - it's more useful than it seems at first.

I never click back-arrow.. i use keyboard for that. I binded the key to "backspace", fast and easy to use.

Faster if you bind them like Opera: 'z' as back and 'x' as forward. With other keys bound O style as well, things are much quicker.

Right-click your toolbar, select Text Position and choose Text Aside Icons. Does the same thing, only it's not bold.

Just realized that what I suggested above would put text alongside every icon, while your intent was to emphasize the certain buttons, like the back button in this case. I correct myself. Yes, it looks like it could be useful.

How did you do that? As far as I know toolbar icon can't be stretched, and you can anly use default sizes like 16x16, 22x22 and 32x32 on toolbar buttons. I don't get it :( I am now on the public computer and I can't download your icon theme but can you answer to my question, please?

With respect,

The Secret to this 'Big Wide' button is the "Index.desktop" file. The Icons get displayed (mostly) to the actual image size as the 'index.desktop's Type=Scalable, Type=Fixed... makes the difference.

just keep the vertical size below 24 pixels and horizontal size less than 30 or 40 (please check the 22x22/actions/back.png icon's size.)

Your icon has 22 pixels vertical size and 53 pixels horizontal size.

I like this idea, and I think that many will find it handy. I won't use it myself because I'm running a different icon theme, but it's a great idea :-)

edit the 'index.desktop' file of this. and change 'inherit=hicolor' with the folder name of the theme you like.
