Re: Debonaire icons

- Pull requests for changes are all right. You could also use "git push" terminal command to push commits directly into the git project.

- We have no specific idea how the welcome-screen icon should look like. Since it's not a strong priority right now, we can leave some time for an idea if it comes in itself.

- A really difficult decision smile Maybe the left one with overlapping Q tail. Both looks fine and makes a specific feeling, would you have some preference ?

- Symlinking wouldn't make much sense. You could pick some more frequently used icons for example "konqueror.svg" to create variants. The most required one is "software-store.svg" for now. The lowest priority have the TDE powersave icons. In any case, this task is not critical, not even highly important, it can be proceeded step by step, and occasionally from time to time.

Re: Debonaire icons

I started working on some of the size variants (software-store, konqueror, and tdenetworkmanager). I'll keep plugging away at the others and upload them as I go.

As for the menu icon, I made a hybrid of the two by cleaning up where the top left of the rectangle stuck out past the quarter circle. I think it makes a nice compromise. If you're good with it, I will upload the svg file to Github (or just replace the -m1 file).

Re: Debonaire icons

That's great. Please replace the -m1 file to keep the standard Q4OS distributor logos untouched. Size variants for this one would be appreciated.

Re: Debonaire icons

The 16x16 "distributor-logo-q4os-m1.svg" have different, a bit thicker, border then "distributor-logo-q4os1.svg". Please make the 16x16 border thinner, and unified across all icons. Size variants border need to be the same for any of icons to keep the look unified. The "16x16" should have tiny or no border at all. Smaller size icons should keep proportionally thinner border in comparison to larger sizes, the same way as "xorg.svg" example, discussed previously in this thread. All in all, the logos look great, thanks for that.

Re: Debonaire icons

See a specification of the icon border, that should be identical for all icons of one size, for ex. 24x24.  16x16 icons should have no border, or very tiny one.

Larger icons should have proportionally thicker border, see for example the "xorg.svg" 16x16 versus 48x48. Images below are resized and normalized for clarity.

So, thanks to your visual, I had my Homer Simpson "Doh!" moment. You say border where I would refer to that as whitespace, but now I'm clear on what it is you're looking for. You probably thought I was crazy with the changes I had made before! I'll go back and review/rework the various icons with the new understanding in mind.

Re: Debonaire icons

I've uploaded size variants for the app icons that didn't have them. I also added a couple new ones. The first is a disabled version of tdenetworkmanager because I noticed it was present in other icon themes. The second is an icon for TDE Components in the Control Panel.

I'll start resizing all 19 of the power manager icons so that those will be done as well unless you have any other immediate requests.

Re: Debonaire icons

Really impressed with this icon set - it's obviously a labour of love!

You probably know this anyway, but there is a bit of a disconnect in the 16x16 Places icons. As you can see from the screenshot, the relevant icons for Downloads, Pictures and Music are not the same style as the larger sizes of the same name.

Re: Debonaire icons

@Jaerrib
Great job smile

@bin
The places icons are derived from the original Paper icon set, a couple of small 16x16 icons intentionally differ for better pungency. Anyway, there are still some inconsistencies in the icon set, we would like to polish that as much as possible.
