Sub_title: Paper Icon Theme
 

This theme is another very neat artistic idea that, to be honest with you, I'm surprised that someone hadn't thought of sooner.

It's from here so thanks to the creator Darknessssen; great idea!

I've done mod's like I usually do customizing for puppy.

Minimalist, hand drawn black and white "paper" icons.

Oh, using a black-white jwm theme from early in the jwm themes exchange forum thread. And the wallpaper is an original gimp done by one of my kids of one of our dogs.

Cool

Sub_title: Tango for Puppy
 

These are the classic Tango icons...usual mod's, etc. by myself. Tango, as usual, very simple, clean and straight-forward.

But what is significant is that these are the first svg icons that I've assembled. Puppy has it's own way of doing things so in order to modify stuff I had to teach myself inkscape. Lite wasn't getting it, so hunting down libraries, etc. finally got Inkscape full installed. Then, after much, "WHY AREN'T YOU EMBEDDING?!!" and, "UGH! WHY DIDN'T ANYONE EXPLAIN THAT I HAD TO TRACE THE BITMAP'S PATH?!!" and the like, I gradually began to figure out how to use Inkscape effectively.

...it was a similar process to learning gimp. Ahhh...good times. Laughing

So now I am actually looking forward to the next round of svg icons...they do end up looking very sharp, perhaps coming out cleaner than straight png icons...not ready to create them all myself, but I can mutate with the best of 'em now! Cool

Sub_title: area042 retro icons
 

These are from here.

I did the usual mod's, except this is a fully svg icon set, including the mounted and mount boot versions of various icons...thank goodness for Inkscape. Also, I put together a jwm theme that is on the jwm themes thread.

Oh, the start-button.png doesn't like svg, so it is a png icon.

I have full screenshots on the My Puppy Looks Better Than Yours here.

..thanks for the compliment!

Master Barry explains it best here. The deal is that the icon switcher script takes the svg files (assuming they are named correctly; I basically use a list of icon names that are in one of the themes from 4.2 and the advice from Barry's blog) and converts them to the correct png's, including sizes, whenever the script is run.

I've found that the svg icon themes can be easier to put together (since you don't have to have as many 'cause they are scalable) but they are harder to deal with (since I'm much better with gimp than inkscape, although I'm learning). So, there are definite plusses and minuses.

My two cents.. Cool

Yeah! Excellent! This is what Puppy deserves. I realized that "all the other linuxes have their icons," why not us?! Nice compilation, dejan555!

Sub_title: Truly icon set
 

Cool I hope that you all are enjoying my icon insanity...don't know why I'm on this roll, but...

Ok, this set is a compilation of sets, the bulk of which are from the Assorted Icons set from Deviant art. All icons are from deviant art. All are from sources with at least creative commons license release, so they are all good for re-use, but please don't sell 'em unless you track down the source of the icon.

This icon set has my usual mod's, so all have been resized and renamed at least. Only ones that could be modified have had things added to them like mount, etc.

The intention of this set is to have icons that are as true to life as possible, so I looked for some very sharp icons and I think it turned out well. Thanks to deviant art for having this kind of service available.

The wallpaper is from here and the jwm theme (yes, that's jwm) is the vista theme provided by WhoDo on the jwm themes exchange thread...

Your roll is great Steve! Keep it up! I really like having so many icon options. The icons have a bit of a way to catch up till they meet the variety of the icewm themes- and you're helping them Smile. You could become the WhoDo of icons Wink Thanks for posting so many!

I have been at iconarchive.com for about 2 hours now. There are thousands of cool icons that you can download, as a pack or individually. I've replaced almost every puppy icon!

yeah, they have a ton of stuff. I posted my desktop when I was through with it here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4001&start=735

I've since added FakeNES and ZSNES and have desktop icons for both.

Thinking I'm going to add Opera and remove Firefox 3, way too buggy with online videos, which is how I watch television.

I'm a bigger fan of having a set of icons, but I'll check that out for ideas; thanks again... Cool Oh, and Texan's unite!! Wink

odd question and i just want to know if it would work.

I have made a seperate folder of all of the stock puppy icons and then replaced each of them with an icon of my liking, while renaming them appropriatly to match the factory names. If I give this folder a name and place it in the themes folder with the rest, will it show up on the desktop icon switcher?

Unfortunately it only works if you follow the format of sizes, names, etc. Check the beginning of this thread and Barry posts the link to his blog that gives instructions on the correct sizing and naming and such...
