Description:

I was tired of half-good themes with some icon from the Mac OS and others from some Crystal theme. So I decided to create my own theme based on what I like.
The "Ultimate Gnome" it's an icon theme for the GNOME linux desktop environment. It is a distro independent theme tested on Gnome 2.24.1 completely drawn with Inkscape. Every icon is drawn in a vectorial format (SVG/XML), and it is exported into a raster format (PNG) for fastest rendering on the screen. The work is published under a GPL (v2), hoping this will help those developers who need a GPL license to include this theme in their software.

The problem with the sonar version is that the only icon you'll see for a file manager is the smallest (16*16 pixel) and I think in that size a user couldn't understand its a sonar.

I've added under the 0.3.7 download, a link to an image.
In the image are shown:
* The current file manager icon.
* Other five icons that could replace the current icon.

I prefer the one with the mangnifying glass and probably I'll add it to the v0.4, but I'm here to listen your opinion.
Tell me what you think :)

I've removed the link cause gnome-look consider it has a download.

So if you want to contribute and tell me which icon do you prefer you can see the screen shot here :

Thank you all guys for your support.
I thin kthat the actual file manager looks good maybe it's not a lot intuitive but I don't see any problem using it.
On the other side it seems that some of you don't like the actual filemanager. So I'll draw a new one (maybe more than one) I'll choose the best and put the other on extra icons.

I've a lot of things to do now. A lot of work and some exams, and I'll update the theme a bit slowly.

I've added "new-tab" icons on 0.3.7
Firefox 3 don't show them because it's using its own icons in the current version. Hoping they'll change.

I'm going to change the file manager into a folder icon with some magnifier or something similar over it.
But I want to know your opinion. The last version has been downloaded from about 4000 users, so what do YOU think about changing the file manager into a folder-like icon?

A folder with a magnifier glass sounds perfect - I think that would go great with the rest of the icon set.

I look forward to it.

i like the file-manager icon you use at the moment. No need to change in my oppinion. The current icon makes the theme unique ...

keep it as it is :)

It's a brilliant iconset!
I really like it.
But please also add icons for applications like firefox, thunderbird, pidgin, deluge, xchat, you know, the popular applications.

Running Ubuntu 7.10, and I like the improved look over the out-of-box set a great deal. All are great except for one ... yes, it is the nautilus file manager icon. Ouch. It looks like a matrix or something.

I love this icon theme! I have installed this icon theme also on my mum's notebook :D

But i miss an icon for my TV-Software VDR, maybe something like an dish antenna would be great.

Does your system provide an icon for that device. If you tell me the name of the icon or can post an url with the image I'll add it to the theme.

Oh I see :)

Well, I don't know if these are what you would call 'good' ideas, but a few that I thought of were:

A 'nautilus' seashell -- I have seen other icon themes take this approach, but you could still do it with an Ultimate Gnome twist ;)

A filing cabinet -- once again, other icon themes have used this to represent the file manager, but you could do it in a more suitable style.

Best icon theme ever :) The only one that I think could do with a revision is Nautilus. It's just my personal preference, but to me, it doesn't really resemble anything I'd associate with a 'file-browser.'

Keep up the good work :)

You are talking about the file manager icon. It is a group of drawers. :)
I've not found any good idea for that icon sorry. If you have some idea I will be glad to draw a better icon.

Thank you for the comment

I must agree with him actually. This is definitely the best icon theme there is. I love the thoroughness of the theme and that it doesn't just change the folder icons like most themes.
One idea might be to have a magnifying glass over a drawer or just a mangnifying glass over a folder ;)

The applications will come later because there is no limit at the apps-icon I can draw.

I can't test this so you have to help me if you can.

Under "scalable/devices" I've only one icon for the ram disks "gnome-dev-disc-dvdram.svg" it is a grey disk. My theme inherits from the base gnome theme so if you can't see any icon it means that also the default theme (about 1000 icons) doesn't support that device.
If you find know a theme that show an icon for your device tell me the name and I'll work to support it.

Thank for your comment.
