ICE icons

Full Icon Themes

Description:

A cool, simple and minimalist icon theme. This icon theme is based on the free and open source Lazer icons (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lazer?content=103143). The aim is to eventually match and replace all of the icons in the Gnome icon theme. Any help would be much appreciated.

This is my first attempt at an icon theme and has been steadily growing into a full blown set of icons. All of the icons are created using the fantastic Inkscape. Any feedback or comments are welcome. Enjoy!

*******************

ICE has had a BIG update with loads of new icons - see the changelog below and second screenshot on the left.

*******************
Have you seen the ICE metacity theme?
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ICE?content=87898
*********************

This theme works best when the Clearlooks OSX theme is also installed.

*********************

---------------------------------
To install, download the file to desktop. Right click on desktop and select 'Change desktop background' then click on the 'Theme' tab and drag the downloaded file into this window.

Note - To use other icon themes too, press 'Ctrl' and 'h' to show hidden folders and open the .icons folder. In here there should be a folder called 'ice'. Inside this folder there should be a file called index.theme (it might not work by just double clicking on it - try opening text editor first and opening the file from within the text editor program). In this file there is a line near the top that reads like this:
Inherits=ClearlooksOSX

Just add whichever themes you want it to use after ICE in there.

v3.1 (19/04/09) - Added some new app icons for language preferences, nautilus CD burner, network tools, reboot notifier, gparted and bluetooth. Added 2 new device icons - SD card and webcam. Lots of other icons were updated and touched up.

v3.0 (14/04/09) - A big update! Only using scalable artwork to make the theme more manageable. Loads of new icons and lots of redesigned icons. New icons include: media icons (play,pause,rewind etc), mail icons (new message, reply, forward etc), devices (mouse, joypad, ipod etc), text formatting (center, select-all, bold etc), new wifi and battery status icons. There is also a new Ubuntu logo that is more 'icy'.

v2.1 (28/08.08) - initial release with folders. New icons for gtk-edit, volume control icons, desktop icon, new search icon. New bookmark icon for the Places menu....and a new icy Ubuntu logo (sorry to any non-ubuntu users). This is a test release with lots more work needed to be done on the folder icons.

v2.0 (10/8/08) - edit-clear, gtk-edit icons added to actions, scalable icons tweaked to scale better, zoom-best icon now working, new dialog icons (error, information, question, warning, password), new session icons (logout, lockscreen, hibernate, switch-user, suspend, restart, shutdown)

Ah, yes that makes sense. Of course, choice is the main point of using linux and open-source. It would be nice if the way icon themes worked was more modular, so you could use one theme for the actions and another for the apps. This theme is much more focused on the gtk menu actions.

I see... but you think you are able to make Categorie, Apps, Device etc. -Icons in a Ice-look? It would be a lot of work and months of work if you are alone, but there would be a nice Icon-Theme for Linux. ... But you will know how far you wants to go ... :D

Yes, I see what you mean. I do keep getting new ideas. At the moment I'm working on folder icons, ubuntu logo, wireless, battery and volume icons.

I can see making a whole set taking a whole lot of time, but hopefully it will make a nice, complete theme. The fact that it is so simple and minimalist should mean that it doesn't look dated. There is also scope for making some derivatives in different colours ... how about a FIRE theme??


Any help from anybody would be greatly appreciated.

It would be nice to have a grey (white) version. Should fit better to my current theme.

I'd love this to be a full icon theme too. Certainly there is scope for different coloured versions also. I'm making icons as I think of them and as time allows, but any help that anybody can offer to make more icons would be most welcome.

cheers,

Rated good. Great set something different at least. Is it right that the trash bin is Tango style?

Thanks for the nice comments and rating. The trash bin icon isn't included in this set - only the delete option on menus and in windows should change. At the moment all other icons being used are from Human and Gnome, but you can easily change this - see the instructions at the top of the page, if they don't make sense, then let me know.

nice + clean, fine bit of work mate.
Also I think everyone should use a stone roses folder in their screenshots.

Cheers mate - yep there should be more Stone Roses in Linux, I feel they bring a certain cool to this theme! ;)

Is this a port from a Mac? I'd like a dock and widgets on my GNOME desktop! So, what OS is it?

Just to add to that.
The background I'm using can be found on Gnome Art:
http://art.gnome.org/backgrounds/abstract/2519

The Window manager is one of my own themes for Emerald:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Cloud+9?content=83590

I'm also using various icons for apps that can be seen in the dock, but most of them are from this OSX theme:

I'm using Ubuntu. The icons themselves are not a port of anything - completely original. My desktop (featured in the screenshots) is a bit of a mix of Ubuntu, Vista and Mac.

The dock is Cairo Dock:

The widgets are Screenlets - this can be installed using Synaptic.

Hope that helps,

it certainly looks nice enough to be a port, huh?

It just lacks some folder icons. Keep it going :) It is really awesome.

Thanks for the positive feedback HolyCheater. If you mean icons for folders, I am not planning on making these as my intention is for these icons to integrate with the gtk windows and menus (e.g. 'refresh' and 'create folder') not to replace icons that are seen on the desktop.
