Hi Paulo, all,

thanks for keeping this running!

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.. :-)

We discussed the shadow during the first few iterations and came to the conclusion not to use it.

I don't remember the reason exactly, but I think that some OS add their own shadow to the icons on the desktop? And we didn't want to waste precious pixel...

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?

What I read from Thorsten is in the mail you attached:

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. ;)

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

So if I understand it correctly, we need 24x24 px icons already including one empty pixel at every side.

This might be dependent on operating system and distribution, otherwise I don't know why Galaxy mentions 26x26, but perhaps Thorsten can enlighten us....

Best regards
