Yes,
This is the best icons theme. I don't know if companies using KDE (Suse,...) can do something here?
Sparkling will boost KDE in no time!

I was just wondering, if anybody knows...
Where is Da-Flow? What happend to him? I think he is not developing Sparkling theme anymore, so here's another question: Could someone take over? I really Really love this iconset, but it needs some more icons.

use the download two messages up. once you
download exstract into a folder and move folder to /opt/kde3/share/icons after you put the folder in this directory go to look and feel and change theme, this has worked for all Icon themes in SuSE 9.1 Great theme Thanks

I used these icons on my old System and really like them..
As I had to reinstall my computer I wanted to get the icons back, but untill now it wasn't possible to download them. Is that just temporary or is there a other place to download? Thanks for answering §M§

been using this icon set for about 4mo nonstop. it's definitely the best i've ever used. one icon is missing though - the 'open location' one, used to open files in konqueror, add media in amarok, etc... when you update to 0.5, could you stick that one in? it should just involve copying and/or shrinking a normal folder icon, i think.

thanks flow!

I know that there is a link for "How to Install," but that's not working for me--KDE control center is asking for a "valid theme file" which doesn't exist in the archive. So how do I install these in KDE?

I've had this problem before -- don't extract the archive. Simply point the installer at the .tar.gz file and it will install.

I'm sorry if this isn't the problem you're having.

Hi maddysdaddy,
It should work the way you did it...
but quite a lot of people had the same problem like you.
It has to do with the theme file: some mistake in the code i've written maybe..

In the next update i'll rewrite the theme file and i hope this problem is fixed

Hope that helped, update comes soon

Actually, the problem lies with me, or rather how I tried to install the set--I extracted the archive first, and then used kcontrol to try to install the theme. It seems that kcontrol prefers to install themes from the unextracted archive. So, in the Icons panel in kcontrol, I selected the .tar.gz file, and viola! It worked. I now have a beautiful new set of Sparkling icons installed. Thanks!

They include two versions of a firebird icons that could be used for the firefox.

I would enjoy it greatly if they added several more icons.

I just want to thank everybody who posts comments, likes and uses this iconset.

To answer some peoples questions i got by mail and comments:

I haven't posted or updated anything to this website for a long time, sure it was months ago, and i don't know if i have the time and energy to fully finish this iconset.

But i have decided to work on the 0.5 update for sure, because Sparkling still has technical bugs: like shadows, installation and other small things

0.5 will come, but i dont know how long its going to take.

Thanks again for all the comments and compliments people made.

These icons are wonderful. The folder icons are the best. Don't try to improve the existing ones. the only sad thing is that they are still too few but they integrate well into other icon sets.
