PostPosted: Fri 24 Mar 2017, 19:08    Post subject:  Need svg icons for Inkscape  

i really like the new puppy standard icon them but have trouble distinguishing between the tar.gz, sfs & pet icons. they are too dark and unreadable in rox when you have small icons view.

so i installed inkscape and had a go at recreating the old .png icons as svgs.
after 3 hours of hair pulling i came to the conclusion that i never ever want to be an svg artist! Very Happy

however i did produce some svgs that resemble the older png icons, but they don't display the correct size in rox.

if anyone can help it would be most appreciated

Artwork

I am no artist! ( @01micko ). Some of the icons could do with some (a lot?) of work. Feel free to send in your pull requests but no icons built from InkScape or other SVG editors please.


(emphasis mine)

I have nothing against other editors. In fact they are great but they do add bloat. Take for instance some icons I knocked up to address your concerns (see screencap):

Code:
# for i in *;do echo -n "$i "; stat -c %s $i;done
application-pet.svg 2060
application-x-squashfs-image.svg 1366
pet481.svg 17548
pet-template.svg 13974


I've attached a package with the icons which can be used (ootb hopefully) to rebuild the puppy standard theme. Just replace the ones in the source package and rebuild. (See the github page and download the source and follow instructions.) You'll notice the header gets changed for different sizes which would be a monumental amount of work to code to support inkscape created icons and those from other editors.

I'll get round to repackaging the theme soon as I have made many other icons to add and fixed some bugs.

BTW: nice looking icons @nilsonmorales Cool

EDIT:
Ok, I rebuilt the entire theme. Definitely an improvement distinguishing between a tarball and a pet/sfs. See attach tarball and remove fake .gz as forum wont accept .xz compressed mimetype.

Inkscape is no stranger to bloat by any means either.

If you would like to remove any unneccessary code and dramatically reduce the size of any svg, you can go to this website, submit your image, and save it without bloat.

https://jakearchibald.github.io/svgomg/

However, if you choose to embed bitmaps like jpg's or png's inside your svg, you should not expect any miracles.

There are two other tricks for reducing the size of an svg in Inkscape. One is to reduce the number of nodes, which is often possible. The second is to snap the nodes you have to the grid as much as you can, so that the vector coordinates do not have to be defined with decimal points.

thanks everyone for the replies!

nilsonmorales your svg version of the original .pet icon is amazing, much better than mine Smile
it was the gradient tool in inkscape that had me pulling my hair out, hence no gradients on my version.

but 01micko has now updated the puppy_icon_theme and fixed the issues i mentioned, so i'm happy with that now
