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.

29/11/2008 There are some problems with GNOME 2.24.1 that cannot be resolved. I'm waiting for gnome to fix them.

Yes your theme does not include icon like this. That device available some OSX themes. Icon and path name is /scalable/devices/gnome-dev-memory.png

If you add a icon for ramdisks, it will be better theme.

In the v0.3.1 there is an icon for your device, but I don't like it very much. I've spent a lot of time trying to draw an icon that fits well in the theme, but ididn't find it.
I'll try to change the icon for the next release.
I promise :)

Where you have voted.. There is somewhere a site where you can vote for a theme to be included in a distro? Is the site gnome-look ?
The only way to vote I've found is the quality vote on the top-right of the page..

Hi!

It's a very nice theme!
I saw the mime icons, and i found the psd icon. Is it from my theme? I'm very happy, when somebody uses my works. If you need more works, I uploaded my new theme:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Tango+mine?content=76316

New icons coming soon. (3ds, and others)

Sorry for my english :(

No it isn't from any of your uploaded theme. Sorry.
Thank you for posting a link to your work.. but.. ..are you serious??
I've spent half an hour downloading all your works (maybe you're happy fr this :D ), but I've not found any psd icon that looks like mine.

Why are you saying this?
Anyway if you can send me a link to this psd icon I'll check it.

Thanks

Nowtimes I hunting for new mime icons and ideas. Three mounth ago nobody had PSD icon. I downloaded an Adobe symbol in jpg format. In the Inkscape I made the feather symbol in svg format. I had an uploaded work on the gnome-look.org. It's contains Coreldraw, SWF and Adobe mime icons for the Tango theme. (Now it's joined into the Tango mime icons)
My Psd icon: image-x-psd.svg

>Why are you saying this?

Because, i found your image-x-psdimage-x-psd.png icon. Yuor feather likes my feather. I was very happy. I think: My work is good, because somebody uses it.

I made a test picture for you. Can you give your e-mail address?
My address is: madboy74@gmail.com

Happy easter!

It's a simple square icon with no feather.

Anyway my email is mtex@email.it

Yes, I was stoopid!

I downloaded lot of iconsets, but I can't remember the correct name. My icon is in the Elementary iconset...

Sorry!

Can you make the icons set available under GNU GPL?
We'd vote it for a default set for a distro then..

I'd vote for changing the colour scheme and using the theme as a default alternative for Ubuntu

The UltimateGnome in a distro.. this is my dream.. but the theme is almost unfinished and I want to complete it before.
And there is another problem the GPl license isn't much clear about artwork.. infact the theme is currently under a Creative Common.

Can you send me some link about GPl-art??
Thank you

by the way, it says 'The GNU GPL can be used for general data which is not software...'

This is just great. I use mostly Gnome but prefer a few KDE programs. Is there any chance you will be making an Ultimate KDE? Just hoping.... Nice work, though! Thanks for the contribution.

hello, very nice!
i searched around in this site for the metacity you used to make the screenshots... it is exactly what i'm searching: the windows look with your icons would be the definitive solution for my long days in front of the lcd panel..

could you please help me to locate that theme?

thanks a lot...

Really cool theme!
Only one thing did not please me:
The home Icon.
I just can't like the default little home.
So I made a new icon just overlapping two of yours, I uploaded it as Ultimate Gnome Home Icon...
Hope you like my idea.

As I've written to you I'll add an alternative icon for the home folder in the next release.. I'm a bit busy now, but it will be included in the v0.2.2
:)
Thank you all.

Well done. Thanks for the theme.

The theme has a nice consistently look, a bit of retro to it, its a good touch. I can see the originality of the icons, all except maybe the folder, and I like effort put into it.

Keep up the good work.
