Specification compliance of icon names
Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification.
audio-headset OK * audio-input-line OK * audio-input-microphone OK battery OK camera-photo OK camera-web OK cpu ?? computer OK computer-laptop OK * drive-harddisk OK drive-remote OK * drive-removable-media OK drive-removable-media-usb OK ** drive-removable-media-usb-pendrive OK ** input-gaming OK input-keyboard OK input-mouse OK input-tablet OK media-floppy OK media-flash-memory-stick OK ** media-flash-sd-mmc OK ** media-flash-smart-media OK ** media-optical OK media-optical-audio OK * media-optical-recordable OK * modem OK multimedia-player OK multimedia-player-apple-ipod OK ** pda OK phone OK printer OK scanner OK video-display OK video-projector OK * video-television OK * * 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 devices/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.
audio-card The icon used for the audio rendering device. 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. network-wired The icon used for wired network connections. network-wireless The icon used for wireless network connections.
To do for Oxygen *and* the spec
Icons that are neither in the spec nor in Oxygen's devices/ (after renaming) but still should be added to both.
network The icon used for generic network connections. (Editor's note: We *could* use network-wired from places.)
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
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.
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. network The icon used for generic network connections. 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.
Summary of optional suggested additions
The ones marked with *, but less important, maybe a good idea, but they are not absolutely needed for inclusion.
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.
