Thanks a lot,

A really nice splash screen was the last missing item for my green themed KDE desktop. - Aug 17 2004

... although I still have this issue about the similarity between the "gohome" and "reload" icons.

Oh well, I'm approaching 50 and my eyesight is probably to blame ;)

Lush 0.1.0

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 58 comments

I think your new action icons are nice, except that the Lush home icon should perhaps stand out more - I think it's a bit difficult to telle the "reload" and "home" action icons apart with the current look.

Maybe it would also be a good idea to include missing action actions from the Sky set until more native Lush action icons are ready for the world? The reason is that I think the Lush icons blend nicely with the Sky set, but they sort of "crash" with Crystal svg which is most people's default fallback set.

Just some thoughts. - May 26 2003

... allthough I still have to copy the Desktop/Sky icon set into Lush for consistency.

Perhaps you could include those in Lush yourself until you get around to a more or less "complete" icon set?

Great work! - May 17 2003

Relax, Dave is probably working on a set of pretty, still clean, action icons so we don't have to add his sky action icons manually anymore :).

I think the orangeish Sky/Desktop "house" looks great with Lush - and most of the action icons from the Sky/Desktop sets too.

Nice... to bad it ain't blue!

You must be kidding. I always replace blue default folders with some other colour - in this respect Dave's Flush and Desktop icon sets are the exceptions so far.

I suppose it takes all kinds of people to make up a world :). - Mar 27 2003

After linking the the high colour default and sky icon sets to the "default.kde" folder (for consistency) my desktop looks great!

Please give us more :)

I agree with your point. These icons are very nice but like e.g. crystal and noia I think they are too "fuzzy" and not readable enough for everyday use - especially the toolbar icons.

So I'm back to the Sky icon set, although I grabbed the orange folder from this icon set as my "default" folder icon - looks quite nice with my colour scheme ;).

I guess this is the beauty of the KDE icon system. You can choose the best parts from everywhere.

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 245 comments

If you're trying to load the preview it's not installable and you will have to copy the icons manually into an existing icon set or choose the icons individually.

However, I believe Dave has threathened to upload the installable icon set "very soon", so maybe you should wait for that.

... as usual. I'm looking forward to the icon set.

And I hope you plan to keep your toolbar icons in the clean and simple "sky" tradition :). In my opinion a major problem with many icon sets is "over-designed" action icons which clutter up the tool bar completely.

Cheers

SKY icons 0.7.3

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 74 comments

I think this is the most usable icon theme for kde so far, pretty and functional at the same time.

Olav

P.S. I didn't like the new kmail icon very much (perhaps because of my colour scheme) and I lifted the wonderful yellow folders from your "Desktop Icons" as usual but that's just me :):).

Good work! In my opinion not very functional for everyday use but like the crystal set, I will definitely keep them on my hard drive for the benefit of visiting windows/mac fans and perhaps prospective girl friends ;).

Sky is my favourite icon theme although I preferred the "old" folder icons.

Good news for me :)

Amazing quality, and design speed for that matter.

Pretty and functional at the same time, i.e. not "overdesigned" as most icon themes.

I will not download another icon theme again (except for your updates of course).

SKY icons 0.7.3

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 74 comments

Hello Dave,

Congrats with you iconset, it keeps getting better every day and I use them exclusively on my home and work PC.

I downloaded the "microsoft extension for crystal", i.e. a Word, Excel and Powerpoint icon, and they look fine. In fact, one of the best things with your icons is that they do not really crash with other major icon themes (except Aquafusion of course ... shudder) - they go quite well together with most KDE standard icons and Crystal icons.

Still, I wonder if you would consider designing Word, PowerPoint and Excel icons with a 100 % sky look - if and when you feel like it of course.

Unfortunately, some of us still have to keep tons of documents in these formats around on the hard drive :).

Ciao

Olav

P.S. For Aquafusion fans: The above shudder is a very "personal taste reaction". The icons are real pieces of art and very good work - It's just that I personally find them too overwhelming for an icon theme :). - Oct 24 2002

SKY icons 0.7.3

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 74 comments

Well, I'm one of those guys who just take advantage of other people's efforts :)

I think your icon theme improves for every release, so for the time being I think I'll just copy your old folder icons into your new releases.

Don't get me wrong, your new folder icons are great. I just happened to fall deeply in love with the old ones :).

Ciao

SKY icons 0.7.3

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 74 comments

I really like your work - I think it's the best icon theme for KDE so far.

However, my very personal opinion is that your old folder icons are nicer than the new ones. Don't get me wrong - your new folders are great too, but I think they somehow lack the originality of the old folder icons.

As you provide the old folder icons in the tarball it's not a problem to revert to them manually. However, this involves some effort on the part of the user and quite a few people would not even be aware of the possibility. So could it perhaps be an idea to submit two tarballs for your next release - Dave's classic and Daves modern?

Just a thought, and keep up your good work.

The old icons are there (look in file systems > "old". I love those too and made them standard file system icons immediately.

Again, great work

Desktop Icons 0.5.0

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 64 comments

I think the home icon is excellent, In my opinion it should "stick out" just a little bit and this one still blends in nicely with the folder icons - also folders with other colours than yellow.

I do somewhat agree about the exec icon though, I get the feeling that it is too "heavy"?

Still, I don't think I will look for kde icons anywhere else for quite some time :)
