Revision as of 15:38, 11 July 2007 by Jpetso (talk | contribs) (Add the descriptions from the spec for the yet missing icons.)


Only partially ready for consumption. JRT already found out about which Oxygen icons already conform to the spec, but the ones that don't conform are not yet listed in here, and there's not yet a plan at the moment on how to proceed with those.

Specification compliance of icon names

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

 *  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 actions/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification

   The icon used for the action to create a new contact in an
   address book application.

   The icon used for the “OK” button that might appear in
   dialog windows.

   The icon for the find and replace action.

   The icon for the select all action.

   The icon for the center justification formatting action.

   The icon for the left justification formatting action.

   The icon for the right justification action.

   The icon for the record action of a media application.

Summary of the suggested changes and additions

The ones marked with * and should therefore go into the icon naming specification, presented here in a shorter list for a better overview. Including a suggested short description text like needed for inclusion in the spec.
