Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification.

 file-broken              -> rework into emblems/emblem-unreadable.
                             Currently only in use by apps/libs as
                             "image could not be loaded" substitute.
 folder                   OK
 folder-remote            Needed
 folder-yellow            -> Keep for now, but try to bring up some
                             substitute functionality, like tinting
                             folders by code, or putting the regular
                             folder on a colored background.
 folder-video             -> svn rm
                             (emulate with folder + emblem overlay)
 network-workgroup        OK
 network-local            -> see if we can remove this
                             by replacing it with network-workgroup
 network-server           Needed
 start-here               OK (KDE 3 name: apps/kmenu)
 trashcan-empty-alt       -> svn rm, or move to alternative/
 user-desktop             Needed
 user-home                OK (KDE 3 names: folder_home, folder_home2)
 user-trash               OK (KDE 3 name: trashcan_empty)

 * 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 places/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

   The icon used for normal directories on a remote filesystem.
   (Editor's note: Move from devices/drive-remote for now.)

   The icon used for individual host machines under the
   “Network Servers” place in the file manager.
   (Editor's note: a computer in a network.)

 start-here -- (dmiller: DONE, but left here for generic icon discussion)
   The icon used by the desktop's main menu for accessing places,
   applications, and other features. (Editor's note: apps/kmenu
   should be moved to start-here-kde so that GNOME desktops
   with Oxygen icons won't get the KDE icon in their panel.
   So could we have a more generic start-here icon for this?)

   The icon for the special “Desktop” directory of the user.

Stuff that needs to be done in the code

  • Replace root folder occurrences (folder-red) with drive-harddisk?
 (Discuss with kde-usability first.)
  • Use folder-remote in remote:/.
 (Also discuss with kde-usability.)
