Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification.

Generic Application Names (in the spec):

 accessories-calculator             OK
 accessories-character-map          OK
 accessories-dictionary             OK
 help-browser                       OK
 kaddressbook                       -> office-addressbook **
 kcall                              -> internet-telephony
 kmail                              -> internet-mail **
 korganizer                         -> office-calendar **
 ksnapshot                          -> accessories-screen-shot **
 kuickshow                          -> graphics-viewer-image **
 kwallet                            OK
 kwrite                             -> accessories-text-editor
 multimedia-volume-control          OK
 okular                             -> graphics-viewer-document **
 preferences-desktop-accessibility  OK 
 preferences-desktop-font           OK
 preferences-desktop-keyboard       OK
 preferences-desktop-locale         OK
 preferences-desktop-multimedia     Needed
 preferences-desktop-screensaver    OK
 preferences-desktop-sound          OK **
 preferences-desktop-theme          Needed
 preferences-desktop-wallpaper      OK
 preferences-system-windows         OK **
 system-file-manager                OK
 system-software-update             OK
 utilities-system-monitor           OK
 utilities-terminal                 OK
 ark                                -> utilities-file-archiver **

Generic Application Names (not in the spec):

 preferences-desktop-cryptography   OK
 preferences-desktop-notifications  OK
 preferences-system-bluetooth       OK
 preferences-system-time            OK

Generic Tango icons in Oxygen:

 krfb        -> preferences-desktop-remote-desktop

Other application icons:

Most other application icons should go to their home modules instead of residing in kdelibs - this not only makes for a better overview but also reduces disk space in case not all modules are installed. And, of course, prevents icons being misused for wrong usages.

 x                             OK ** [see Discussion]

 * suggesting this for inclusion into the icon naming specification
 ** not in the spec, but let's keep it out of there anyways,
    it's not really suited to be a standard icon

To do for Oxygen

Icons that are in the spec, but not yet in Oxygen's apps/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

 preferences-desktop-multimedia
   The icon used for the desktop's multimedia preferences.

 preferences-desktop-theme
   The icon used for the desktop's theme preferences.

To do for Oxygen - not in the spec

Icons that are not specified and do not currently exist as well, but are needed for KDE applications (and not blatantly obvious). Yes, I am aware that some of those are bad (if not outright evil) names. That comes from preferences-desktop-peripherals being classified in the "desktop" preferences subgroup, which is very wrong imho. We need to fix this in the spec (see the suggestions of the categories page), but until then, I stay with specification conform names.

 preferences-desktop-display
   The icon for the "Display" KCM.

 preferences-desktop-effects
   The icon for the "Desktop Effects; KCM. (New in KDE 4.)

 preferences-desktop-gaming
   The icon for the "Joystick" KCM.

 preferences-desktop-launch-feedback
   You can guess. Really, it's easy.

 preferences-desktop-mouse
   The icon for the "Mouse" KCM.

 preferences-desktop-panel
   The icon for the "Panels" KCM.

 preferences-desktop-user
   The icon for the "About me" KCM in KDE 4's System Settings
   (which was named "Password & User Account in KDE 3).

 preferences-system-login
   The icon for the "Login Manager" KCM.

 preferences-system-power-management
   The icon for the "Power Control" KCM. (Although I'm not sure if
   this will still exist for KDE 4, at least in its current form.)

 preferences-system-network-share
   The icon for the "File Sharing" KCM.

 preferences-system-session
   The icon for the "Session Manager" KCM.
   (This icon also exists in the Tango set.)

 preferences-system-splash
   The icon for the "Splash Screen" KCM.

Optional icons

We don't absolutely need those because they are covered by fallbacks: if these icons don't exist, they've got a sensible fallback.

 preferences-desktop-display-randr
   The icon for the "Size & Orientation" KCM.

 preferences-desktop-keyboard-khotkeys
   The icon for the "KHotKeys" KCM.

 preferences-desktop-panel-taskbar
   The icon for the "Taskbar" KCM.

 preferences-desktop-user-smartcard
   The icon for the "Smartcards" KCM.
   (Was "identity" in KDE 3, and is really not necessary.)

 preferences-system-solid
   The icon for the "Solid" KCM. (New in KDE 4.)

 preferences-system-windows-effects
   The icon for the "Window Effects" KCM. (New in KDE 4.)

 preferences-system-windows-decoration
   The icon for the "Window Decorations" KCM.

 preferences-system-windows-specific
   The icon for the "Window-Specific Settings" KCM.

Icons in Tango, but not in the spec

We don't need to have those, but if we do they should be named this way:

 internet-group-chat
   For a possible generic instant messager icon.
   *Very* optional though, as we already have branded
   Kopete and Konversation icons.

 internet-mail
   We already have this from the previous "kmail" icon.

 internet-news-reader
   Instead of "knode".

 internet-web-browser
   For a possible generic browser icon. *Very* optional though,
   as we already have a branded Konqueror icon.

 office-calendar
   We already have this from the previous "korganizer" icon.

 preferences-desktop-assistive-technology
   Tango does this as preferences-desktop-accessibility
   plus an emblem-style gear icon at the lower right.
   Hardly necessary to have.

 preferences-desktop-sound
   Go Phonon go. (Done.)

 preferences-system-network-proxy
   We do have proxy settings in KDE 3, this might make sense.

 preferences-system-session
   The icon for the session management settings.

 preferences-system-windows
   Done.

 system-installer
   Adept, Yast, Pirut, Smart, or whatever else is out there.

 system-users
   Seems to fit KUser or Guidance's "User Management" module.
