nouveGnomeGray by tsujan nouveGnomeGray by tsujan
This is a light gray icon set for GNOME, to be used with dark GTK themes. I made it based on my other icon set, nouveGnome tsujan.deviantart.com/art/nouv… . Its icons are designed for use against sufficiently dark backgrounds.

nouveGnomeGray depends on the GNOME icon theme, which is provided by the package gnome-icon-theme in Debian-based systems.

Just a few app icons.

I have created a few extra icons you might want to include.  I noticed the battery icon only has 1, 3, and 4 level indicators, here is 2.

I took almost all symbolic (scalable) icons from the Gnome icon theme. The battery icons are among them. In fact, the folder 'nouveGnomeGray/scalable/' can be removed from the theme and also from the file "index.theme" but I preferred to leave it there (I don't remember why). Consider it as an outsider ;)

I see an icon that seems to represent a battery that is plugged in and charging on the preview image above but I don't find it under any of the folders, is it there somewhere?  The closest I found was */devices/battery.png

Hello tsujan,

Great theme!  Also nice to see it is actively maintained. :)

I have some suggestions on possible additions to the set of application icons.  Some of the applications below are not actually built into the software, however, many distributions package them with a desktop file anyways.  That said, it would be neat to see them added as well.

Possible Additions:
  - geegie: geeqie.sourceforge.net
  - links: links.twibright.com (nonstandard)
  - mumble: wiki.mumble.info/wiki/Main_Pag…
  - sandbox: wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:S…
  - tightvnc: www.tightvnc.com (nonstandard)
  - xfwm4 (wmtweaks): docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfwm4/wmtwe…
  - xonotic: xonotic.org (nonstandard)

Hello,
Ok. I'll add them when I have free time. But there's no guarantee that those apps get their icons from the theme.
Thanks for the links!

Hi tsujan,

I just noticed that the icon-theme.cache being generated is 202MB big...

Maybe in the future when you have time you can figure out a way so that the size can be reduced...

It's not so bad when only using a few iconsets, but when you start getting a collection of any size,
then these cache files start brining the sizes upwards in the gigabytes in size being consumed by
this,

Personally I don't get why these caches get so big in some iconsets...


Hmm
Reply
:icontsujan:
tsujan Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2015

The icon cache is not necessary and you can remove it but they say it reduces RAM usage (for which I have no proof). Its size depends on how many icons the set has. On my system (Debian), it isn't created automatically when I use the set as user.

DevyGrl Featured By Owner Edited Jan 19, 2015
It's my understanding that some applications look for and use the icon cache and that it is a good thing to have...

PCSX2 1.2.2 that I use requires the cache to load it's icons from...

I will add them provided that (1) they are really app icons (and not just logos) and (2) they aren't hard-coded (so that their corresponding apps use them). Thanks for the links!
Now I'm busy with Qt/KDE/E but I'll come back to nouveGnomeGray.

Some of these, if not most, the developers didn't create an icon...

But I'm hoping you'll create an original icon for them...

Keep up the great work and thanks! :)

Done! Sylpheed may still use its hard-coded icon. I chose the Firefox icon for IceCat as I'd done for IceWeasel because both are Firefox and aren't installed beside it.

Hi tsujan,

For the network icons, my understanding is if they follow "Freedesktop.org Compliant Names", then they'll work...

thank you again for your work! :)

:icontsujan:
tsujan Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014
The Gnome icon theme should follow that standard and I used exactly the same names.
However, I'll look into that later. Now I'm quite busy with Kvantum.

Well I'm saying logo, because some developers didn't create an icon, but there's a logo on the website as
an example, but some of these logos are being used in other iconsets as icons too...

And I'm assuming for the developers that didn't make a icon, but made a logo on their website, this would then be
the icon they'd use if they made one.

So I'm confused by usable icon, if you're going to create the icon from a logo look a developer uses?

As far as Network icons, Openbox doesn't use anything, because Openbox, doesn't have a network application.
So depending on the network app you choose, this is the one that is going to load the icons.

AwOken has wicd icons, these are all the names Wicd uses; (But alot of the names are symlinks so I'd recommend downloading AwOken to look at them)

dpaste.com/1AR7HTW

Since I'm using CMST now, I'll check and see what it uses...

Thanks again tsujan

Hi tsujan,

Oh sorry for not explaining better, I'm not unsatisfied, I'm very happy, thank you.

Yes bloat I can understand, I'm a longtime Slacker that only runs Openbox.

Yes I logged out and the icon cache was updated as well, but still Wifi icons don't load...

In Openbox I use either Wicd, or CMST. CMST is a QT5 gui for connman, you can find it here;
github.com/andrew-bibb/cmst

Also as a longtime Slacker I pretty much know what all the common icons look like for most applications in Linux, so
this is why I wanted to share with you these others, that either don't have icons, or the authors have icons for them, instead
of linking to other icons as you mentioned to create less bloat, but doing this, then they don't have much distinction, or originality.

Also if the developer(s) didn't create an icon or app.desktop file, you don't want to create an original icon for them?

The reason I mentioned SpaceFM is because the 'House' is used as the Home button in applicaitons, as I'm sure you know,
so this just makes SpaceFM look like a Home button icon, this is the reason I mentioned using the Developers icon.

Here's a link to the SpaceFM icon, I took from the package;
www77.zippyshare.com/i/5913415…

Conky does not have a app.desktop file, or icon, so this would be the first time for it, that is why I showed it's mascot logo at their site.
conky.sourceforge.net/aboutcon…

Feh has a app.desktop file, but the developer uses the name FEH as you see on their site in the upper left in red color, this is why I mentioned the favicon instead....
feh.finalrewind.org/

The icon you are using for Feh is typical for the Eye of Gnome, pdf viewers, and other searching apps, so I mentioned it, in case you wanted to give it something
more original and use that
favicon instead.

OpenVPN doesn't have a app.desktop file, but this is their logo;
swupdate.openvpn.net/community…

For Xfce the only reason I mentioned this is because the rat is their logo, so it's not techically correct, because

xfce4-notifyd has it's own icon.
apps.fedoraproject.org/package…

No, because even if I had time to do so, it would be completely futile. An icon set should consist of USABLE icons, not logos.

I might change the SpaceFM and xfce4-notifyd icons. And if you tell me the exact names of WIFI icons under Openbox, I'll add them too.

WOW this was fast...

The Network this looks good for Wired connections, and I see you have some WiFi icons, but they don't get loaded when I use the WiFi.

For OpenVPN, PCSX2, PCSXR, Snes9x and Xkill I will show you the logos for these below...

For Conky It would be nice if you could make the icon from the Conky logo;
conky.sourceforge.net/aboutcon…

Feh has it's own icon, it's the favicon;
feh.finalrewind.org/favicon.ic…

OpenVPN logo;
swupdate.openvpn.net/community…

PCSX2 logo;
screenshots.en.sftcdn.net/en/s…

PCSXR logo;
consoleemu.com/img/pcsx-reload…
Just make it a Playstation Controller is all you need...

Snes9x uses the super nintendo logo, this one below is HUGE, hehe;
img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…

SpaceFM has a really nice icon with the Box and House in it, you think this is to hard to make?
ignorantguru.github.io/spacefm…

Your xfce4-notifyd icons of the Rat looks really nice, but to be technically correct, the Rat is the logo of XFce.
xfce4-notifyd is a whistle and the rat together.
Here's the xfce4-notifyd logo;
apps.fedoraproject.org/package…

Xkill is typically just an X or Skull & Crossbones...

Thanks for the AWESOME work! :)

The namings of the network icons are all that of Gnome. Please give me the exact names of the WIFI status icons in the gtk-based DE you use! BTW, did you log out and in or updated the icon cache (if you use any) after updating the set?

I know about the logos. The problem is what the actual app or its desktop file uses. As just one example, in all distros I know of, Conky doesn't have any desktop file and there's nothing in its code about an icon.

You seem unsatisfied with SpaceFM and xfce4-notifyd icons. My policy has been not bloating the set with unnecessary icons but using symlinks as far as possible. In many cases, I even don't imitate the original icons but use some that convey the concepts clearly enough.

I updated the set. Are network icons OK for you now?

Some of the apps you mentioned (OpenVPN, PCSX2, PCSXR, Snes9x and Xkill) had no icons. Some others had icon paths in their desktop files and might still use their own icons although the nouveGnomeGray ones exist.

I rely on feedbacks like yours to make this set more complete. So, don't hesitate to tell me if some icons are still missing and please give me their exact names.

Hell tsujan,

This is a AWESOME iconset! Thank you very much for creating this, I truly love these icons!

I noticed the network icons aren't complete, there are only icons for when disconnected on eth0, nothing
for when idle or connected. Also I don't see any WiFi icons too? Will you be adding in any new network icons soon?

Also I have some requests;

redshift; jonls.dk/redshift/

Redshift consists of two icons, the icons names are;

'redshift-status on' = a red color
redshift-status-off = a grey color

I guess since the look of the icons for nouveGnomeGray is a gray color, maybe make one instead for the red color that represents on, 'redshift-status-on', maybe make the hue darker,
some kind of contast, so you can tell if it's on or off.

I truly hope you can PLEASE make these icons, especially the need for more network icons that are missing at the moment.

Thank you very much for your consideration, keep up the great work! I hope you will keep this iconset alive for a long time to come! :)

I really look forward to seeing these new icons...

You're very welcome. And thank you for giving me a list of missing icons! I'll SURELY add them as soon as I have free time. It may just take a while.
And yes! I'll keep and maintain this set. Why not? Here the situation is not like with GTK3, which always breaks themes.
As for the red color, I can accept a little of red and yellow with gray. They could catch the user's attention when needed.

FYI,

On Ubuntu 14.04 with Unity, if connecting a VPN on wired LAN, the the status bar icon does not show the secured connection.

My workaround was to put a nm-device-wired-secure.png icon in the folder <icons-location>/nouveGnomeGray/22x22/status/ folder.

There's an ongoing discussion about this: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sou…

Anyway, you may want to add such icon for wired vpn status in your distribution zip .


Keep up the good work :-)
