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.

 acroread                      ?? needs a spec type name for fallback

                                  should not go to apps.

 x                             OK utilities-x **

 * 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.

   The icon used for the desktop's font preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's multimedia preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's screen saving preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's theme preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's file management application.

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:

   We already have this from the previous "kmail" icon.

   Instead of "knode".

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

   We already have this from the previous "korganizer" icon.

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

   Go Phonon go.

   We do have proxy settings in KDE 3, this might make sense.

   I really don't get why those are "system" items, those are
   quite obviously desktop items, right? Well, whatever.
   We already have the latter one from the previous "kwin" icon.

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

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