Description:

I-cons are easy to read, clear-looking and (allmost) configurable set of superkaramba themes, together making desktop look nice (i hope).
Each widget has a number of config options. From these, i would mention "3/4 size widget", which makes widget switch icons and texts sizes, so widget became 96px height, instead of 128px. Also every widget has ability to get in "Nice mode", which causes informations more easy-to-read, eg. disk widget will show just percent of fullness or emptyness.


Theme gets icons from /usr/share/nuovext/... . Maybe you will have to change path.
(I can only say this path works on Debian with KDE 3.5. If you are missing nuovext icons on Debian, apt yourself kde-icons-nuovext (it is in testing).)

Hope you like it, feel free to express your opinions & feelings.

Used, free, and percent are not accurate.

Yeah, I'm poking this sucker with sticks. Take it as a compliment; if this wasn't such a cool theme, I wouldn't be bothering.

Okay, in i-cons-disk-home.py, when you go to 3/4 size, you reused the code from i-cons-disk, so it displays mount and unmount. I changed this, so now it displays the icons and options that the full-size widget does. It's easy once you're looking at the code, it's lines 170 - 192.

Next problem: I'm unable to use the config to update the partition label or iconset. When I try to update the partition label, I get this:

"Call to commandOutput failed

Attempting to change the iconset seems to fail silently. Please advise.

In the i-cons-disk-home theme, clicking on the home icon brings up an empty Konqueror session, because it's calling text4, which is "". I don't know if this was deliberate or not, but I changed line 110 to:
karamba.createClickArea(widget, 285, 0, 160, 33,("konqueror ~"))

to open the user's home folder.

Like it a lot, it's replaced Aero AIO on my desktop. A thought -

Automatic image resizing would be great. The icon set I'm using doesn't have some of the icons in 32x32, which is the path the theme looks in for the small icons, and it doesn't include 96x96 icons at all. Obviously, resizing the png files myself and creating the directory was a minor matter, but if I hadn't have gone code diving I wouldn't have known.

Thanks again, and keep up the great work!

And why "build.png" and "up.png" for mount and unmount? Why not "ok.png" and "cancel.png" or "up.png" and "down.png"?

NOooooo bonafide, please find the motivation! I deeply admire your effort and class you put in to your work, it is clear you have an eye for art and a vision (in my opinion) where the desktop should be heading. If the comments that deturred you were from liking it to the MAC, then ignore, - OSX is widely regarded as the most user friendly OS out there, your on the right track IMO, you beautifully combine your inspiration with what kde should be about.

Perhaps you could mail me some kind of prototype?

anyway, props on this theme Ricardo, I nearly made this myself since bonafide seemed to be taking ages, thanks u saved me alot of work!

I started working on something like that, but way more complex (http://www.kde-look.org/content/preview.php?preview=1&id=31863&file1=31863-1.jpg&file2=&file3=&name=Alternative+Desktop+Icons). I had planned on releasing it until some guy pissed me off. Now my motivation on finishing it is gone...

This is a superkaramba theme, so you can not load it with kicker.
Also, there is nothing "so special", it is just superkaramba theme. : )
