Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification. Also, the existing emblem icons need to be blown up to full icon size once emblems are done with automatic resizing and placement.

 emblem-link              -> emblem-symbolic-link
 emblem-mounted           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 emblems/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

 emblem-default
   The icon used as an emblem to specify the default selection
   of a printer for example.

 emblem-documents
   The icon used as an emblem for the directory where a user's
   documents are stored.

 emblem-downloads
   The icon used as an emblem for the directory where a user's
   downloads from the internet are stored.

 emblem-favorite
   The icon used as an emblem for files and directories that the
   user marks as favorites.

 emblem-important
   The icon used as an emblem for files and directories that are
   marked as important by the user.

 emblem-mail
   The icon used as an emblem to specify the directory where the
   user's electronic mail is stored.

 emblem-photos
   The icon used as an emblem to specify the directory where the
   user stores photographs.

   The icon used as an emblem for files and directories which can
   not be written to by the user.

 emblem-shared
   The icon used as an emblem for files and directories that are
   shared to other users.

 emblem-synchronized

   configured to be synchronized to another device.

   The icon used as an emblem for directories that contain system
   libraries, settings, and data.

 emblem-unreadable
   The icon used as an emblem for files and directories that are inaccessible.


To do for Oxygen *and* the spec

Icons that are neither in the spec nor in Oxygen's emblems/ (after renaming) but still should be added to both.

 emblem-audio
   The icon used as an emblem for media containing audio content, such as audio CD.

 emblem-video
   The icon used as an emblem for media containing video content such as SVCD and video DVD.


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.

 emblem-audio
   The icon used as an emblem for media containing audio content, such as audio CD.

Open questions

  • Can additional (unspecified) emblems be added to the emblems/ directory? What happens if any given theme doesn't provide a requested emblem?
