How to create XFCE icon package?


Xfce - Apr 15 2010
answered
Question:Hi,
how do I create an XFCE icon package?
How do I know what the name of the folders and icons should be?
How do I know what each name of the icon refers too?
I know I can copy existing packages and modify them, ubt sometimes they are incomplete, or its not clear what that icons does.

Please help me.





Answer:you can create an xfce icon set in the exact mode you would for gnome! some icon names differs a little (power manager icons and volume icons into the panel, for example), but the process to follow is the same.
To start study icon names you can take a look there: http://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-naming-spec/icon-naming-spec-latest.html#names and there: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/icon-naming-spec/to-be-named: once you end the icon design and naming process, you have to create a index.theme file (for this file you can see others icons sets themes: it's easy understandable).

Anyway, generally speaking, the icons follow the icon names specifications rules, which are well defined. To study difference between gnome and xfce, I recommend you to take a look at the ShiningReprise theme (you can find it on gnome-look, too, but I think that the xfce-look version is different from the other and is specific for xfce.. Look by yourself for more info).

List but not least, follow and read thes mailing list: http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/xdg and http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/tango-artists.

for icon theme specification guidelines, regarding tango, you can start from http://tango.freedesktop.org/Standard_Icon_Naming_Specification

as you can see, you have to do some pratic to become expert in icon themes: nothing hard, naturally, but you have to pay attention when you start it!


Hope this helps you, see ya!

i'm not sure how accurate is this answer so i'm posting this as a comment..

i don't think there is any program/wizard for creating icon themes..
so the only possibility is to do things manually
and probably taking default xfce theme (or xfce specific theme like iComity) as a template is the solution.. there you can see what is the naming convention for all icons.. you can search for LSB standard icon names but standards are not always used in all apps so imo default themes tend to be more accurate

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
