Description:

UPDATE 23-07-11: Official Release of the iconset.

UPDATE 06-07-11: Fixed bad resolution icons for akregator, clementine and so on.

UPDATE 01-07-11: Improved Amarok and Dolphin support (as you can see in middle screenshot).

This is my first try to port AwOken iconset on KDE environment.

I'll call it kAwOken, to let users to use distinctly AwOken iconset when they're on GNOME and kAwOken iconset when they use KDE.

Please go to the deviantArt page linked below to download a first version (the download link is in the description).

It will have all the features provided by AwOken iconset, i.e. a script that lets you to choose between:

* 100^3 colors

* 115 distributor logos (this number is growing according to the requests)

* 48 folder types

* 4 trash types

* 5 computer icons

* 5 home icons


In these screenshots I want to show a working example of kAwOken iconset.

Here's a quick description of the screenshots:

TOP SCREENSHOT:

* Wall: http://j3concepts.deviantart.com/art/xxi-211745169 (check his gallery, it's great!)

* Theme: Oxygen (default)

* Plasma Theme: Aero (default)

* Iconset: kAwOken colored with 99 30 00 colors

PS: Even if you can't see it, the blue version is already available. Just open a terminal and go in kAwOken folder in your user icon folder (either .kde/share/icons/kAwOken or .kde4/share/icons/kAwOken , depending on your distro), and then type:

./kawoken-icon-theme-customization

It will run a customization script from wich you can color icons with whatever color you want! For that blue type the code posted in the deviation [i.e. 99 30 00 - but you can choose a lot of more colors], and then select the new iconset created in such way!

MIDDLE SCREENSHOT:

* Wall: http://ibeliveicanfly.deviantart.com/art/L-arbre-de-pierre-193533820

* Theme: http://narf41.deviantart.com/art/Leichtsinn-QtCurve-and-Colors-215621775 (simply great!)

* Plasma Theme: http://narf41.deviantart.com/art/Leichtsinn-Plasma-Theme-215619666 (and this too! :) )

* Iconset: kAwOken colored with 65 65 00 colors

PS: Even if you can't see it, the blue version is already available. Just open a terminal and go in kAwOken folder in your user icon folder (either .kde/share/icons/kAwOken or .kde4/share/icons/kAwOken , depending on your distro), and then type:

./kawoken-icon-theme-customization

BOTTOM SCREENSHOT:

Hello, I've noticed that although the subject is very very complete, in central Muon Software (Kubuntu 11.10) are not rating icons. How can I add to this theme some icons for this?

Thank you. :) Great job.

This is the most amazing iconset ever made, congratulations.
Most appreciated missing icons would be:
archassistant
mupdf
chromium (somehow it always uses the default icon in the panel - using smooth tasks)
kfilebox
folder-books or something having to do with study/university/school
folder-torrents
folder-films (different from folder-movies)
folder-various
folder-info
folder-chat
folder-backup
folder-maps
folder-gps
folder-data
dolphin icon is a bit dull - maybe you could be original and use a real dolphin there!
krunner icon in the panel


Settings icon shouldn't have the gnome foot ;)

(I know they are a lot - just throwing out all the possible ideas there!)

Also I don't know why but some panel icons stick to the normal monochrome ones, such as battery, kmix and klipper icons.

Don't worry if they're a lot, I prefer to have a bigger view of all problems could happens! :)

ok for archassinstant, kfilebox, and mupdf
I know for settings icon but I prefer to fix it just before the first official release since it's more conmfortable for me to do this.
For folders, I'm sorry but I can help you with further icons: some of those folder themes are not mine. I used them with permission, but I've not drawed them, so for me it's impossible add something new to folder icons since it would be incomplete.
For what concerns krunner, chromium, battery, kmix, klipper and so on, the problem is only panel icon? but with panel icon you're talking about systray icon right? Because since KDE4 systray icons are not related to icon theme but to plasma theme, so I cannot modify them! :(
For dolphin, what do you mean with "dull"? Original dolphin icon is a drawer, so I did that icon to mimic it! :)

Archassistant, klipper, battery icons belong to the systray, so like you say they come from the plasma theme. Sorry I forgot that. But Chromium, Krunner, mupdf ,also Firefox, who live in the application bar (la barra delle applicazioni insomma, dai che ci capiamo!), in my system have their own icon, I don't know why. Kmess for example uses your icons, so do other KDE apps, they are fine. But some non-KDE apps behave wrong.
Probably it's just a problem of misconfiguration of my system, but happens on my gf's laptop too.

About dolphin, that drawer seems a little odd to me. Doesn't fit with other icons, but that's just my opinion!
IMHO it'd be nice if the dolphin icon was a real dolphin, but that's your icon theme, you do what you want!

Also you may want to build an AUR entry for your work, or ask the gnome AwOken package mantainer to mantain this too.

Can you signal me an iconset whose icons could change default firefox and chromium ones? So it should be simpler understanding the bug.. :)

For krunner the icon don't change maybe since I never done it :)

For a packaged version I think it's too early. Now I'm working on a beta version, but the iconset is not officially released yet! :(

Uhm, I had a try at some iconsets, but none seems to work. If I type in Krunner the app the icon shown is right, but in smooth tasks the icon used is the standard one. This happens also wth the normal application bar, so it's not a smooth tasks bug. Sorry for the late answer.

Ok maybe it's a krunner problem, so I think I cannot do something useful to solve this issue :(

Hi, sorry for the late answer, it seems that this bug s not related to the icon theme, I'll have to investigate further into this but I honestly have no idea of what it could be related to.

-folder view plasmoid has big icons, I was forced to lower the zoom in the view (default is max)..

here it is:


Initial settings. Current Release: 2.1

*************************************************************************
ERROR: Zenity not found. Please install zenity to use this script in the new 2.1 Version.
Anyway, I'll run the script in the old terminal fashion.
It seems that the set is not in a expected location (or there's a bug in the script). If you think there's a bug, please send me a mail or a message in whatever way you prefer.
I'll stop here.

Ok.

Firstly, download and install latest 0.2 version (so we're sure that the problem isn't fixed yet). Secondly, post the output of:

ls ~/.kde/share/icons

and

ls ~/.kde4/share/icons
