OpenOffice.org1.1 toolbar icon themes

Various KDE 1.-4. Styles

Description:

This is a tcl script for generating OOo toolbar/menu icon themes, from kde (or other) icon sets.

Rather than focusing on individual themes for each icon set, I decided to provide a tool so that the users can create their own custom icon themes. That said, some common icon-themes from kde-look are enclosed (base = crystal).


Install
-------

Extract the downloaded file.
* To install the default theme in OOo 1.1.x, run:
"tclsh quickInstall.tcl"

* To install any custom themes,
Specify your OOo config directory in config.tcl and the theme directory, run:
"tclsh genbar.tcl"

(0.1) Initial release

(0.2) Second release (improved functionality)
* OOo config directory is now backed up before continuing.
* Icons are now stored in a different folder, that should fix the loading error issue.
* Image index for bitmaps starts from 0.
* Option to turn icon-masking off, since some themes don't look good with masking.
* Option to add navigation icons to the function toolbar (screen-shot 2).
* few additional icons (nuvola + noia) and slots.

(0.3) - Third release (more improvements + additions)
* Koen Muylkens has joined in (more icons!)
* Significant updates in the script (no more major changes in future, hopefully).
* Option to use your default-kde icons
(slect icon theme in kcontrol, run script and the icons will appear in OOo)
* Option to add a navigation toolbar
* There is a static *untested* windows config theme under "Extras".
* Number of base icons is > 80 (22x22)

(0.32)
* Crystal base icons for font/para properties
* slotlist.csv format changed to allow icons for macros
* Runs 30% faster than v-0.3 (defaults)
* Folder "Extras" contains gimp files for font icons

(v 0.4)
* Several new icons, total > 150 (22x22)
* Configuration is now set in a separate file (config.tcl)
* New quick-install mode for OOo 1.1.x. To install the base theme, run: "tclsh quickInstall.tcl"
(no need to update config.tcl)
* Script improvements
* Static windows theme had to be removed due to space constraints.

(v 0.5)
* imagelist.xml format changed, should reduce the overhead for OOo startup.
* Script runs almost twice as fast as version 0.4 (defaults).
* Additional icons for draw, and some others updated.
* Error on qtrc not available bug fixed, and other small improvements.
* Separate submission for generating static themes: (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=8529)

(v 0.52)
* quickInstall checks for multiple installed versions of OOo
* Option to scale icons to smaller size

this is the best post on KDE-LOOK since a very long time!!!!!!

I once tried to change some icons in OpenOffice. I had no succes.... :'(

but you managed to do it!

can you put it in contrib of mandrake (or suse,...) or so, or mail someone of mandrakesoft to ask that they put it in their next release....

btw: kde-icons in openoffice is also very good for people that are new to linux.

Thanks! :)

Sure, I'll be glad to submit it to mdk. But its in a very preliminary stage, maybe after v0.2 or 0.3?

In the meanwhile, people can go to:
http://www.openoffice.org/files/documents/25/60/commands_11beta.html

and send me your favorite slot number with a corresponding base icon, and I'll be sure to include it with the next release.

As a footnote, currently the base theme has a very small fraction of OOo icons (~50). So this release is just a preview of what is intended - alternate icons for most OOo slots. Enjoy!
