yeah, i've downloaded all the right size icons, 24x24 and 48x48 and have changed the names to reflect those of a stock puppy install. And they are all png files. I just don't want to load this thing in there and lose all my icons. I spent over a day getting them all. No flash drive or CD-R to save them to either.

Subject description: Smooth-color
 

Looking for a theme that is a little more vibrant but not too serious? Try this.

Smooth-color is a combination of packages including various things off of iconarchive, deviant art and the like. Scrap icons, a little gartoon, etc. as long as I could stay with the feel of the theme and licensing issues didn't conflict. This one is free for non-commercial use, otherwise look up the creator...

All on 4.2; usual mod's by myself, including the start-button...

Enjoy and post back if you like 'em... Cool

...well, save 'em some place secure, either the hard drive or something else. I completely understand working on 'em all day. But you are pretty safe with those 'cause here is what happens, basically: once the icons are saved in the right place (/usr/local/lib/X11/themes/) you can then click on change icon theme. Once you click on that it says, hey, you sure? you say yeah, then the script runs and essentially takes your icon theme and recreates it in the correct folder for the desktop (that's why the svg files can work 'cause the script converts 'em to png).

That's simplifying and any of the more learned dogs [dogs= a respectful term, in this case, regarding those that have been on the forum forever and know a great deal more than me..."dog" is meant to represent the grown up equivalent of a puppy, in this case Wink ] on the forum feel free to correct me. But my point is, your icons are still there when the process is finished.

But remember, I did tell you to save them first... Cool

Well, wonder no more. It works.

I copied the current theme from pixmaps folder to a new folder and slowly replaced them one by one. Once I had all of them changed, I gave the folder a name and put it in the themes folder with the other 3. I ran desktop icon switcher and there, even with a preview.

Subject description: Aluminum
 

Here is a new one folks..aluminum icon theme...straight from here...here

Similar to osx with aluminum style folders...

...I've almost got this process automated, folks.

Let's just say install imagemagick (search the forum) use mogrify to change icon sizes, use a rename script to rename and use composite to make the mntd and boot_mntd icons...I'm THIS close...Wink My goal is to have it to where I put the base icons in a file, run a script, then the icon set is created...I'll keep everyone posted...

OK, this is my first iconset attempt, I kinda exaggerated with this, made them too green and glowy, but someone might like it.

Download pet here:
green_glow.pet 155 KB

Screenshot (click to enlarge):


That's steve's jwm theme from jwm themes thread and wallpaper is I think from vladstudio but I'm not sure about that.

Nice, dejan! yeah, you took the next step before I could and just made your own Icon set...you're more courageous than me...i'm going to have to scratch that itch soon, though...

Nice start! nice color combo on the screenshot...
