FISL talk

So yesterday I had my very quick talk at FISL 7.0 about Oxygen. It was the last talk of the day on a remote room so as expected there wasn't too much people. Local KDE supporters told me it would be different if "KDE" name was in the talk title. It was my first talk ever so I'm pretty happy about how things went. The questions I hade were most about differences with Tango Project and SVG icons. I've announced that the Oxygen team is going to meet soon at Pinheiro's place to work one week only on the icons and that a few more meetings are planned for next months. Goal is to make the base icon theme ready in end of July or at least in August. So, seems that end of summer is the deadline we give ourselves to put icons somewhere on SVN and start the final rush to version 1.0 with the help of the KDE artist community.

Have you considered using and adapting some of the Ubuntu Dapper icons into the Oxygen theme?

The Ubuntu icons are exquisitely made and contains lots of detail, so all you'd have to do is adjust the colors (make them less orange). I think they'll fit in really well.

One thing I'm not sure is whether the Ubuntu icons are available in SVG format...

Sorry for leaving a second comment, but I think you should get in touch with Andrew Enyart: http://arenyart.googlepages.com .

He has created a professional-looking icon theme named LoGloss SVG. I think the icons are of high enough quality and might complement well the existing Oxygen icons.

vkadc6: I saw his artwork and seems very promising. I hope he will help us in a few month when we will put icons on SVN and start work with KDE artists community.
