* 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 *** exists in the Tango icon set, but not in the spec
Generic Tango icons in Oxygen:
krfb -> preferences-desktop-remote-desktop (also used in GNOME under that name)
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 ?? newer Reader versions are named differently (how again?), and use upper-case characters in the name of the executable. akonadi OK, as it an independent app that doesn't make use of kdelibs and thus can't provide the icon by itself (since 4.1) basket -> move to wherever basket lives digikam -> move to extragear/graphics/digikam fontforge OK java OK k3b -> move to extragear/multimedia/k3b kaffeine -> move to extragear/kaffeine kate -> move to kdesdk/kate kblogger -> move to wherever kblogger lives kbugbuster -> move to kdesdk/kbugbuster kchart -> move to koffice/kchart kcolorchooser -> move to kdegraphics/kcolorchooser kde OK (KDE 3 name: actions/about_kde) kexi -> move to koffice/kexi kjournal ?? does it still exist? if no, svn rm. if yes, move to wherever it lives. klipper -> move to kdebase/klipper kmplayer -> move to extragear/multimedia/kmplayer knotes -> move to kdepim/knotes (and to the notes plasmoid?) kolf -> move to kdegames/kolf konqueror OK kontact -> move to kdepim/kontact konversation -> move to extragear/network/konversation krita -> move to koffice/krita ksniffer -> move to playground/network/ksniffer kteatime -> move to kdetoys/kteatime ktip -> move to wherever ktip lives ktorrent -> move to extragear/network/ktorrent kuickshow -> move to wherever kuickshow lives kverbos -> move to wherever kverbos lives kwallet OK kword -> move to koffice/kword nepomuk OK oxygen OK okteta -> move to kdeutils/okteta (since 4.1) plasma OK plasmagik -> move to playground/base/plasma/plasmagik strigi OK wine OK xorg OK
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.
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-effect ** The icon for the "Desktop Effects" KCM. (New in KDE 4.) preferences-desktop-panel ** The icon for the "Panels" KCM. preferences-desktop-theme-style ** The icon for the "Style" KCM (widget style, in "Appearance"). preferences-system-network-discovery ** The icon for the "Service Discovery" (= DNSSD / Zeroconf / Bonjour / Rendezvous) KCM. preferences-system-network-proxy *** The icon for the "Proxy" KCM. (Also exists in the Tango set.) 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.
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-multiple The icon for the "Multiple Monitors" (aka Xinerama) KCM. preferences-desktop-display-randr The icon for the "Size & Orientation" KCM. preferences-desktop-keyboard-khotkeys The icon for the "KHotKeys" KCM. preferences-desktop-multiple The icon for the "Multiple Desktops" (a.k.a. virtual desktops) KCM. preferences-desktop-panel-taskbar The icon for the "Taskbar" KCM. preferences-desktop-user-account The icon for the "Password & User Account" 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-network-connection The icon for the "Connection Preferences" KCM. preferences-system-network-share-windows The icon for the "Windows Shares" KCM. preferences-system-network-share-windows-status The icon for the "Samba Status" KCM (in KInfoCenter). preferences-system-windows-effect 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.
Even more optional
Draw those only if you feel like wasting time for little outcome. I haven't got KDE 4 compiled at the moment, so I don't even know if those are visible at all.
preferences-system-windows-focus The icon for the KWin's "Focus" settings, which belong to the "Window Behaviour" KCM. preferences-system-windows-action The icon for the KWin's "Actions" settings, which belong to the "Window Behaviour" KCM. preferences-system-windows-movement The icon for the KWin's "Moving" settings, which belong to the "Window Behaviour" KCM. preferences-system-windows-advanced The icon for the KWin's "Advanced" settings, which belong to the "Window Behaviour" 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 Used in KDE 4 instead of "kmail". (Done.) 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. (Done.) office-calendar We already have this from the previous "korganizer" icon. (Done.) 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. (Done.) preferences-system-session The icon for the session management settings. preferences-system-windows KWin settings. (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. (Done.)
