New splendid icons
« on: January 07, 2007, 12:10:12 pm »
Hello,
I've found on the web some splendid icon set, wchich is free and I'm pretty sure that the author woldn't mind to use thoose icons in the code::blocks.
Screenshot: http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/previews/index_abc.png
And next: http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/mini/

I think that they're really pretty, and implementing them, would increase general feeling.

Write what do you think.
regards, angelo.

Hi !!

Sure they're beautiful and look free !!
I wonder how difficult it could be to integrate them in C::B because user can choose icon size and this collection propose only one mini size.

I keep the link for other applications I will work on, I don't feel an icon designer.

So, I guess that we could write to the icon set author , and ask him, if he could make thoose icons in 32x32 size. If no, I've got another idea. C::B dev's could make c::b, that it would write icons from the specified folder, something like in the IzArc archiver, but not exactly (whole icon set no in the one image, but separately).

that's for Thomas and Yiannis to check , if those can be used or not. So don't get too excited, since their might be special conditions that needs to be fulfilled

might i recommend the tango-project (http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Icon_Gallery) for nice looking icons?

they are under the "Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license" and can be freely used.

since there are already icon-packs for GNOME, KDE and even WindowsXP (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/27940418/) Code::Blocks would nicely blend into the OS.

apart from all these things the icons are really nice ;-)


there is also a sub-project called "CodeTangoSet" (http://tango.freedesktop.org/CodeTangoSet) which tries to collect programming and IDE-centric icons. (actually this project is almost non-existant at this very moment, but i guess new icons created with the tango-style guidelines in mind would be more than welcomed)

For me, "tango" icons, are to much "tango", but it's taste point.
