Description:

OS X has forever changed the way operating systems will be viewed. Artistically, OS X has raised the bar for OS design so high that the artistic appeal of a desktop manager is now a critical component of any commercial desktop. OS-L aims to match and exceed what can be found in OS X. In theory, there are enough icons in this set to almost recreate the entire look and feel of OS X (I couldn't make it that easy). However, many of the icons used to give OS X its' unique look and feel have been purposely replaced with alternatives from some of the best open source icon designers in the world (Reason - They're just better, but that's subjective of course). This icon set is a natural extention to Baghira (Thanks Thomas, what you've done with Mosfets code is unbelievable), but, understand that this icon set unbuilt has nearly 12 MB of icons, which means that in no way should you limit yourself to trying to recreate the look and feel of OS X. Customizing this build kit is a necessity, because you litterally have a choice between at least 3 icons for every application, device, folder, and mime type in the set. I thought of never releasing this compilation but I've downloaded the IcOsX-0.7.tar.gz numerous times and I felt that It was time that it evolved. Thanks Maitre for the original build kit script, without it I would have never constructed the Kde Icon Build Kit Template which makes releasing icon sets so simple. I hope everyone loves this build kit, because it is the ultimate compilation of the efforts of icon artist around the globe. Thanks everyone here at Kde-look, Xicons.com, Iconfactory.com, Aqua-soft.org, Aero-soft.org, Gnome-look.org, Wincustomize.org and everyone that I wish I could list individually. This is only 4/5 of the entire icon set, so look for version 1.5 comming soon.

Forgot to add the following:

To build the icon set run the included buildscript (./buildscript) Some icons may need to be renamed to have them show up natively in your distribution. All comments are welcomed, both good and bad.

Added about 2MB worth of additional icons in the apps, and devices folders. This will be the offical 1.0 release, but I still would like to add another 2MB worth of icons to the build kit.

I wish I could vote twice, because for some reason my rating keeps dropping.

Well, I just voted positive again (grins). Perhaps a jealous poster of same type material is voting against you? Doesn't matter - your stuff is above par.

I added a comment -- under the subject "Applejacks" -- when this item, OS-L, first appeared. It's now gone, with someone else's response to it. Were they deleted, or are there gremlins on the loose?

And now it looks like all the comments are gone. Looks like the work of gremlins to me.

Just try the dropbox on the uperright of the comments to read older ones.

Though I must admit it's annoying that the interval is quite short

Click on my name and you can download it. I created it and posted it under the wallpaper section a while back. I think I named it Dark Angel, but if you click on my name you will be taken to a listing of everything that I've posted on kde-look and you will find it.

OS X is bueatiful to me, however, I wouldn't classify it as the reigning champion of eye candy. I think Linux has OS X beat in that department for the simple fact that Linux can morph to match any OS. I can make my Linux desktop look like XP, OSX, or any other OS you can think of. Or better yet, I can combine various styles to create a desktop that has a look that no one ever imagined. OS-L isn't meant to copy OS X. I compiled this icon kit to give Linux users a chance to provide their own interpretation of the photorealistic look and feel. If you look at some of the other Icon set that I have posted (Exqusite, H3O-D3A) you'll discover that I like to dable with Icon set's that push the boundaries in terms of their design. OS-L provides each Linux user a chance to say; if I was going to design a desktop with photo realistic icons, what would it look like.

"Artistically, OS X has raised the bar for OS design..."

That's certainly arguable, but must that mean that the only response is to ape it? There must be other ways of making beautiful user interfaces, right?

There's also the "de gustibus" factor: not everyone thinks OS X is the most beautiful. I think the latest Gnome looks really nice, and it does that not by imitating something else.

Well, here's what I would suggest. Rip all the Gnome 2.8 Icons, put them in a build kit, and publish them for everyone to use with their KDE desktops. I'll never claim that one set of icons is "better" than another, however, some icon designers change the way users view their desktop because of their artistic prowis. Whether you like photorealistic icons or not, who can deny that their the most prominent and unique feature of OS X from an artistic point of view. That influence alone has caused every desktop maker to push additional funds to the art departments. And, while you'll scream you don't like the look of OS X until your dying day, I don't believe it for a minute. :-)

osx is not everyones favorite and i must say, the osx look begins to suck after some time. it is too much eye candy for a everyday work desktop imho. the gnome 2.8 design is slightly better, because it is reduced to the "important" things.

yes, the icons do look great. but icons and windeco do not make a desktop environment "great". they are only small parts in a bigger puzzle.

btw. when will the hig finally be applied to kde? i am waiting and waiting...

Set the Active, and Inactive titlebar effects to brused on the Brushed Tab. Set the Title shadow intensity to 0 and set the 3D Intensity to 20. I think that worked for me.
