Hi Alex,

Hi everyone,

as discussed during the IRC I started working on the icon for the
remote control:

Could you post the log of the IRC chat on the wiki?
About the icon:
Are you using 3d graphics software to produce it? It's probably better to
use Inkscape, as then you have full control over the details and the
shadows and glows and you're able to adjust the icon for various
resolutions. Gnome's detailed icons are produced in Inkscape. [1]
Also, the viewing angle is different from the standard Android one. Take a
look at and the
way the messaging icon looks.

I'm wondering whether the 3D perspective adds any value which a simple drop-down shadow wouldn't provide. And if it does, why viewing from above ? --> suggesting overview, control, closeness, link to something below, etc... A perspective skewed sideways may be more appropriate, just to indicate (lateral) distance.

As for the blue colour in the signal waves; there doesn't seem to be any general consensus on colour-code for wireless networking; I often see icons with green, red or blue symbolising wifi radio. For icons dealing with wifi connections, often there's red/yellow/green for symbolising disconnected/connecting/connected. So, what's your take on this ? Maybe green would be more appropriate for LibreOffice ?
