PostPosted: Fri 16 Jan 2009, 02:33    Post subject:  Exquisite icontheme  

This contains an icontheme for Puppys desktop (4.12) using the iconset switcher.

And the icontheme for Gtk in /usr/share/icons.
You can activate that in the rox-filer options, or better with the Gtk-Themechooser:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=218890#218890

Screenshot in newyearspup (lxde/compiz):
http://puppylinux.org/home/screenshots/newyearspup


In addition, I added the original old KDE theme in
/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/exquisite

This theme is so old, that I think it is no longer compatible with current theme engines, but you can grab nice pictures from it.

Almost all (except two or so) have a size of 128x128.
I did not check, if this is ok for JWM.
In LXDE it is fine.
Just pcmanfm crashes sometimes, but I don't know, if it is related to the theme. I used it the first time intensively to preview the icons.
So if you like, feel free to create a new pet optimized concerning size - reduce them to 48x48, remove the old KDE-theme.

Get it as SFS or PET here:
http://dotpups.de/puppy4/dotpups/Icons/
mirror:
http://puppyfiles.ca/dotpupsde/puppy4/dotpups/Icons/

The theme originally was announced here:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Exquisite?content=14788
As the original files there are lost, I created a mirror: http://dotpups.de/diverse-tgz/exquisite-icontheme/.

Took one night to rename/pack this all nicely together, some icons also had to be modified or to be taken from other themes.

I slightly updated the files.
Added icons in the /usr/share/icons/exquisite/128x128/categories, and the terminals no longer show "C:\" (*shudder*), but "#".

glad you have fixed it.
I was going to complain but thought I was being petty.

Hi MU,

Very nice..I'm using the .pet on a G_Pup usb install.

I couldn't load the sfs even after renaming it to 412..then with the sfs in /mnt/home (on the usb it's in with the other .sfs files) I had a boot failure (overlapping ro1...or something like that).

Eric

Eric,
hm, I cannot reproduce that with my frugal installation.
Maybe on one filesystem there is a symlink, and in the sfs it is a folder instead?
I'm too overtired at moment to check it, so good, that the pet works for you Smile

Will,
yeah, that was an important bug, I even thought of removing them again because of this critical issue Laughing

So I now found out, that it is based on a Theme made for Windows XP.

http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=1160&libid=2 (B3)
http://madbwana.deviantart.com/art/xp-MadB1-6927593 (B1)
Here are some icons included as .pngs:
http://rapidshare.com/files/144607761/XP-MadB.rar
Can be extracted with
unrar e XP-MadB.rar
Unrar can be installed with petget from the Puppy 3 repo.

How to get Window Icons:

(what a mess...)

look here:
http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?libid=2&p=14

Download a set, it has the suffix".ip".
Rename it to ".zip" and extract it.

I tested:
SEInterfaceyellow.ip
http://www.wincustomize.com/download.aspx?skinid=1598&libid=2

This extracted 2 files:
SE Interface (yellow).icl
SE Interface (yellow).iconpackage

Now you need "wine".
Download and install with wine:
ICL-Icon Extractor
http://www.freeware-download.com/downloaddetails/11349.html
http://www.freeware-download.com/get_downloadurl.php?ID=11349

Then run it, and use "file open" to open the extracted .icl file.
This may take a while.
Then choose "File - save as - zip file".
Now you can unzip this new file, and have the icons, like:
SE Interface (yellow) 100.ico
SE Interface (yellow) 101.ico
and so on.

Now install "scale2pics":
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=29184

Type these command in the folder with the .ico files:
mkdir out
ls *.ico | while read a;do scale2pic "$a" "out/$a.png" 128 128 100;done


100 stands for maximum quality.
Now the folder "out" contains all of the icons as .png files Smile

I started to work on an addon-theme for exquisite.
It uses the icons "Shiny Black" from the same author.
That theme is less complete, so it is just an addon, based on exquisite.

It is for people, who prefer a darker look.
I added so much already, that it might be worth a look for enthusiasts.
But some things miss, e.g. mounted drives from hotpup are not marked yet as mounted with a green ball.

And on the screenshot you can see, that symbolic links still use another theme. But this also should be an issue in exquisite.

To use it, first activate exquisite, then afterwards madbShinyblack.

Download + screenshot:
http://dotpups.de/diverse-tgz/madbShinyblack/

contains:
Puppy iconswitcher desktoptheme:
/usr/local/lib/X11/themes/madbShinyblack

Gnome/Gtk-Icontheme:
/usr/share/icons/madbshinyblack

the pixmaps from the windows icontheme:
/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/madbShinyblack

I made a sfs of the themes
Crashbit+Exquisite+madbShinyblack

2 screenshots display most, but not all icons there, too.

http://puppyisos.org/files/sfs/iconthemes/
user: puppy
password: linux

I added the missing mounted drives icons for madbShinyblack.
And for lxpanel a new menubutton and networkstatus display.

madbShinyblack inherits from exquisite, which inherits from Crashbit (mostly the mimetypes).
In the index.theme you can define such inheritence, so also "incomplete" themes look complete.
The one or other icon still will not match from crashbit, but the overall look is great.
If someone adds missing icons, please upload them.
It is basically just an issue of renaming them properly, you don't need to paint them.
