Hi all!

I have been away from these discussions, just reading and not participating, but here is one more contribution.

These are the Tango-inspired version of the Mimetype icons for toolbar usage. I'd like to know your opinion/criticism/suggestions.. :-)

About size, they are 24px + 2px (1px empty border) = 26px. I don't know if it's the only needed size... Can anyone talk more about it? And also, are more icons needed?

A great Sunday to you guys,

But, here comes the question to a new toto item - Thorsten: Kendy
mentioned yesterday that some icons might be missing. Is it right that
we lack toolbar icons for (e.g.) the File-New-Dropdown? If yes, what
size is required here?

Nope, we have those.
Phew. :-)

According to the Galaxy icon set page, it should be 26x26 - can you

Heh, no friggin' idea - but yeah, that page says: small size (16 x
16 pixel), large size (26 x 26 pixel), high contrast version of all
icons. ;)

More importantly, as prompted by Kendy, the Tango icon set has the
following style guide (excerpt from - that has
many more info for keeping a homogeneous design):
That's true, and I regularly work with the Tango Icons. The question is,
whether Tango will be "the choice" for us, since it still lacks a lot of
specialized icons (Galaxy works better here). And, if we are sure that
it works well on all platforms ... if yes, then we might go for that
style atm.

And, it can be guessed some the Tango icons (a fraction) will change
soon, since they are currently re-done with a new styling.

Large:       48×48
Medium:      32x32
Small:       22×22 pixels - blow up to 24×24 by adding a 1 pixel
              empty space on all sides
Extra Small: 16×16 pixels

(A RC1 preview download for Mac, with the new icons, is available
I can join the campaign "I miss a Mac" - so if anybody here (but you
Thorsten, you have to care about other things *g*) has a Mac, it would
be great to see a screenshot - just for fun.

Have a nice day!
