As posted earlier, I have been working on a Bluecurve set of icons. Today, I have uploaded what’s currently there in the work-in-progress. View the current state of the set.

    I have to say…

    Those are looking great. I don’t care what everyone else thinks. (j/k)Your hard work is paying off…

    Thanks. It’s a lot of effort. I’m glad you like them.

    They’re great!

    Personally I think the BlueCurve desktop is the best looking Open Source desktop ever. Now that OO is going to themed into it it’s all that much better. Thanks for all you hard work – it’s looking really good.

    OOo needed some good looking icons and Garrett, you’re the man to do them. So far they look excellent. Is there an estimate as to when 1) you’ll have them finished and 2) they’ll enter the Fedora distribution?

    Awesome…but could we see a screenshot?

    They look great. I was going to do an RFE for Red Hat to use the Ximian OOo icons a while back but this is much much better. When its possible, could you post a screenshot of the work in progress? I’d like to see it.PS. < 3 leaf_veins.jpg. Its so…well…green.

    Pretty slick. But, what’s this thing with the save icon? 😉

    Re: Awesome…but could we see a screenshot?

    Thanks! I’ll post a screenshot when I have one. Dan is working on classifying and integrating them into OOo and we should have a screenshot soon. I think it’ll be screenshot worthy within a week or two, possibly.

    PS: That leaf was very green. (:

    Re: Finally…

    Thanks! I’m not sure when I’ll have them finished. I’m working hard to try to get them done as soon as I can, but there are a plethora of different icons (and variations on icons, such as both circular and elliptical types of every round drawing tool. The same goes for square versions of the rectangle one. Then you have filled and unfilled variations of each, too. Also, there are things like 3d pyrimads, spheres, half spheres, shells (half sphere, unfilled), a torus, and other bizzare things for an office suite. Really, who draws a 3d torus in an office suite? Oh, and for each icon, there are typically two sizes 24×24 and a 16×16 version too.)

    I think when I’m done with this current subset of icons I’m working on at the moment, I should be around a 1/3 of the way through. Dan is helping me prioritize the icons so that we have the most visible coverage first, so hopefully we’ll have a mostly complete theme in Fedora soon. The sooner the better, as I’d like this stuff tested and I would like to see if there is a need to make any slight alterations to some of the icons.

  9. me says:

    How many icons are there? I don’t think you’ve given a total number. It’s quite sad that you have to create all those variations. Couldn’t OOo create a "mini" icon that is placed above another icon to create the variations? (I know, it’s not what they did and now you have to deal, but is it theorectically possible?)In any case, we’re all looking forward to seeing these babies in action.

    I think…

    That it is time for a Garette Screenie anyway. I am curious what your desktop looks like today (running Fedora Core2?)…and even your Mac.

  11. A bunch of icons

    Garrett will still be busy for a while 😉
