Specification compliance of icon names

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

 * 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.)

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