Ice-WM Themes by slarti 16 comments

but this windec, even if pretty, is not usable (for me): i can also live with the buttons looking the same, but i need feedback on whether i am acting on the button or not -- am I the only one here that has this complaint? it should not be difficult to fix (hint, hint ...)

Steel Icons

Icon Sub-Sets by Doches 48 comments

sorry but i don't agree, bright colour go completely against the idea behind the theme. A stell icon-set has to be grey, with a nice grey, steel background - if you don't like the idea, just pick one of the scores of high-colour iconsets we have here ...

Steel Icons

Icon Sub-Sets by Doches 48 comments

THANKS!

I was going to ask for a "steel" theme (i was going to call it "metallica") here for ages, but never had the courage, in this sea of blue glass and water ;-)

Your icons are really WAY beyond what i had imagined, really something different!
keep up the good job!

I do remember your earlier post being voted out, without even bothering to explain why, but not let this discourage you, your theme and iconset is really top quality, are you also designing a widget theme?

Office icons (preview)

Icon Sub-Sets by osrogon 26 comments

wery well done! It's nice to have a classic, "flat" set of icons, amonng all these 3D icons.

And I love the toolbar buttons! a
bit like the ones in the "new" crystal, but better.

keep up the good work!

fred

BTW

i don't think that just because Crystal is all the rage now, the other icons sets are "dead". An iconset doesn't have to evolve perpetually. Ikons is older than Crystal and was pretty finished when everaldo came along ...

Crystal GT

Full Icon Themes by everaldo 385 comments

these are great! I love the "softer" look of the icons!
Just some remarks:

1.the desktop icon is actually not ugly, but the "desk" looks too much like glass, thus breaing the metaphor of the icon

2. the arrows icons in the toolbar are geat! much better than the classic crystal ones! for those who find them too colourful, you can leave the option of having the grey icons.

3. the terminal and control center icons in kicker are too much like XP, sorry. IMHO the classic icons were better.

4. the new CD icon is great! all device icons should be likw that: slightly turned and with a shadow

i could go on, but i stop here.

Thanks everaldo!

Marbles 0.1.4 (Solid)

Icon Sub-Sets by Markus 21 comments

but i must confess I am a fan of these icons, and i also think i prefer the solid version.
Yes, some icons become too small in the "drop", but remember that the author did not design the original icons. Some other icons, on the other hand, come out great in their "marble" form! Icon designers should also consider people who do not use 64x64 for their icons ... Crystal for instance,, imho, looks pretty bad in anything smaller than 64x64 ... - May 20 2002

KDE-13 / KDE IceWM window blinds

Ice-WM Themes by neuronality 2 comments

for some reason window decorations are of lower quality, on average, than other parts of the desktop. Even mosfet's new one for liquid isn't too exciting, but this one is great! Sober but not too minimalistic, ad I love the "quiet", but visible colours!

Great job! I am looking forward for your theme!

Aren' we running the risk of over-complicating icons? smaller icons should be litlle more than a (conceptually) a led turned on.

What KDE could look like

KDE Plasma Screenshots by chirilas 16 comments

an xp theme on k-l.org!! One wonders whether it is legal at all! It is (of course), and it's also a good thing (tm), for the following reasons:

1. we need to know what the competition is up to. There are very talented people designing themes for windows, and we want to copy (yes, copy, let's call things with their name) the best things they do. And i, for one, having stopped using windoze in 95, would have never found such a theme.

2. It is not only perfectly OK to copy the interfaces of other OSes, we HAVE to do it! If someone wants an XP, OSX, Nextstep, Amiga etc. etc. look on their KDE, they have the right to have it and we must offer them. Open source is about choice, no?

As for this particularly theme, I like it a lot! I think it makes an excellent light gray, bright. theme!
Here on k-l.org, there is screenshot ("doug's desktop", I think) that is based on the same idea, and is actually better, IMHO.
The author promised to do a theme out of it, but it never cameout, sadly .. (hint)

Some new icons sets have icons that are really too cluttered. Icons should be readable, but some look like shots of a movie. THe seagulls here,in this case, are unnecessary and confusing. - May 03 2002
Black and White color scheme

KDE 3 Color Schemes by norman 9 comments

last comment confirms me in my opinion about the superficiliaty of many people here on k-l.org. Let me point out that:

1. Even if the implementation is flawed, the idea behind this theme is original (no blue! THANKS!) and originality should be encouraged.

2. Visually impaired people NEED a black and white high contrast (no grays) interface

distro should provide disk space for this icon theme -- it's beautiful, orginal, fully consistent and functional, no other icons set has ALL this features. KDE needs this icon theme (and so do I!)

Desktop Icons 0.5.0

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 64 comments

all due respect, and with many thanks for your fine wp's (one is my default one now), you don't get it. If people would come up with complete, ready, functional icon sets there would no need for a web site like this, an ftp site would do.
If there is a "send comment" section here it is because we all here have very precise (sometimes!) and divergent (often!) ideas on what is a nice, cool, functional GUI. Here we can voice these opinions, and artists can take them into account. Feedback makes all the difference.
So it does make sense to post here a "prototype" of a single icon, as all the comments show.
This is no place for people that think that designing eye-candy is a race, "me made 20 icons!" and such. This is a collborative effort to get a better looking KDE.

peace out!

Fred

Rainbow Drops

Icon Sub-Sets by Markus 15 comments

your icons are good! the x-chat one is VERY good!
But what i like about your icons (i don't know whether that was intentional) is the fact that all the icon have the same shape. With the new trend towards 3D, colourful, icons, is much more difficult to get consistency between the different icons. To "frame" the icons in a cristal looking button could be a solution to get consistency and let the artists be creative at the same time. - Apr 26 2002
kolorful Style and Color Scheme

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by menak 14 comments

first, thanks for the install script! very easy and convenient!
as for your theme, the colour scheme is quite OK (it's the one i am using now) bu the style is way too bright, completely unusable by me. I do like the idea and the choice of colours, though! Tune down the brightness a little and it will be ok.
