I am considering these icons for Puppy 2.15CE Office edition. Any comments?



I will upload a test package to the PSI repos for mirroring.

Cheers

Whoa, there Jason. I didn't create them. Mike Muschini aka Gryphen from the PCLinuxOS forum created them. Here is the license detail.



I have uploaded the package to our mirror, and MU will include them when he can, but if you want to grab them sooner they are at http://www.kde-look.org.

If they spark enough interest, I'll approach Mike to create some specifically for Puppy to include with 2.15CE - but only if enough people in the community want that.

Cheers.

erm.... is "WOW!!" a comment? How about "AMAZING!!" ??

These are VERY impressive.

I sometimes get the feeling that reviewers tend to disregard Puppy because it looks a bit 'old fashioned/retro' or 'unpolished' or (heaven forbid) 'unfinished'. Of course, some people like the standard look, but 'some' is not 'most'.

With the kind of desktop experience we (and mainly you, WhoDo) are putting together for 2.15CE, I think people are going to sit up and take notice!

(It makes me feel humble anyway)

We are not worthy... Laughing

Very Happy My advice is whatever the objections, go with this.
This is the Wow factor. Puppy thanks to so much great effort works fast. Now it can look the way it is . . .

Woof woof

Be careful about making them too big though. It can get crowded at lower resolutions.

Personally, I've always preferred colorful things to gray, but that's me, and leads me to do stuff like the old test-pattern splash screen Puppy used to have, which may have caused retinal damage to several people. Embarassed

They do look pretty slick though, and they help the wallpaper show through (which compensates for their lack of color).

Thumbs up from me Smile

The ones I really like do incorporate color. Check out the firefox icon with a frosted firefox wrapped around a blue globe. If everyone likes them, and the feedback is pretty positive so far, I'll ask Gryphen if he can do a few especially for Puppy.

The clear ones would allow a change in theme, including wallpaper, without needing to adapt desktop icons to match. That was my thinking on them originally.

Cheers

No problems, Mark. I just thought you might occasionally be scanning the ftp uploads at your leisure, but I'll PM next time, no problem.

Thanks for providing the link in this thread.

Cheers

I prefer them to all those modern Windows icon clones Smile

Yes, such a firefox-icon would look great I think.

No, I don't control /incoming at puppyfiles.org, only puppyisos.org.

It really gets time I finish the webinterface to upload on your own.

Maybe this weekend.

That's what I'm aiming for, Dave. Coming from you the reaction shows me that we're definitely on the right track for look-and-feel issues. Thanks, mate.

Um Ok , Woah...!

Serious Snafu here...!

Ok , I've downloaded all the these icon's from www.kdelook.org , Now try to stay with me here.., In that picture in the first post that WhoDo posted - The icons look great..! , I mean awesome.! , But when i downloaded and extracted them - And tried to use them to replace some of my current icons - they look absolutely Horrible..!

You can't see half of them and the one's you can see you can't make out fully...

Example - When i apply the "Firefox1.png" icon to my desktop it is:

(1) - Way too small to make out what it is and that it is a "Fox" wrapped around an earth globe..

(2) - the reason why the icons look the way they do is because all the color has been removed from them , Not because they've been "Glassed" or "Frosted"..

i applied a darker background on my desktop and the icons don't show up much at all at that point...

In that picture the icons look good , yea , But notice how larger they are..?

Did anyone else notice any of this..??? Sorry for sounding so negative...
