--- Concrete renaming suggestions Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification. *-mount -> svn rm, right now. See below (*) for the explanation. 3floppy-unmount -> media-floppy audio-headset OK ** audio-input-line OK ** audio-input-microphone OK camera-unmount -> camera-photo cdaudio-unmount -> media-optical-audio ** cdwriter-unmount -> media-optical-recordable ** cellular-phone-unmount -> phone cpu ?? drive-optical -> media-optical dvd-unmount -> svn rm, as media should be represented by their contents, not their disc format. hdd-external-unmount -> drive-removable-media hdd-unmount -> drive-harddisk hdd-usb-unmount -> drive-removable-media-usb *** ipod-unmount -> multimedia-player-ipod joystick -> input-gaming keyboard -> input-keyboard laptop -> computer-laptop ** memory-stick-unmount -> media-flash-memory-stick *** mouse -> input-mouse nfs-unmount -> drive-remote ** printer OK projector -> video-projector ** scanner OK screen -> video-display sd-mmc-unmount -> media-flash-sd-mmc *** smart-media-unmount -> media-flash-smart-media *** system -> computer tablet -> input-tablet usbpendrive-unmount -> media-flash-usb ** video-television OK ** webcam -> camera-web * The specification's way of doing "*-mounted" icons would be mount emblems, overlaying the standard ones. Kévin and Aaron claim to have a solution at hand right now, so let's kill all "*-mounted" icons instantly. ** 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 --- Icons that are in the spec, but not yet in Oxygen's devices/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification. audio-card The icon used for the audio rendering device. battery The icon used for the system battery device. (Let's just move actions/battery.svg to devices/.) camera-video The fallback icon for video cameras drive-optical The icon used for optical media drives such as CD and DVD. media-flash The fallback icon used for flash media, such as memory stick and SD. media-tape The icon used for generic physical tape media. modem The icon used for modem devices. multimedia-player The icon used for generic multimedia playing devices. network-wired The icon used for wired network connections. network-wireless The icon used for wireless network connections. pda This is the fallback icon for Personal Digial Assistant devices. Primary use of this icon is for PDA devices connected to the PC. Connection medium is not an important aspect of the icon. The metaphor for this fallback icon should be a generic PDA device icon. --- Icons that are neither in the spec nor in Oxygen's devices/ (after renaming) but still should be added to both. media-optical-video The icon used for physical optical media such as CD and DVD containing video content. --- Don't know what to do with... cpu The specification does not contain any low-level processing units, such as CPUs or RAM. I can't think of an appropriate "category" name for those. The only word that I found which comes close was "internal-*" (internal-cpu, internal-memory, ...) but I'm not sure if this consistent with the rest of the devices category in the spec and extensible enough. Input and better ideas appreciated. --- Summary of the suggested additions to the icon naming specification The ones marked with **, in a shorter list for a better overview. Including a suggested short description text like needed for inclusion in the spec. audio-headset The icon used for handsfree headset devices that combine a pair of headphones or earphones with a microphone. audio-input-line The icon used for audio line input devices. media-optical-audio The icon used for physical optical media such as CD and DVD containing audio content. media-optical-video The icon used for physical optical media such as CD and DVD containing video content. media-optical-recordable The icon used for recordable physical optical media, such as CD-R and DVD-R. media-flash-usb The icon used for physical USB flash drive media. computer-laptop The icon used for a portable computing device as a whole. drive-remote The icon used for remotely accessed drives, such as NFS or WebDAV mounts. video-projector The icon used for a projector that video gets displayed to. video-television The icon used for a television device, such as CRT or flat panel displays.
