    Unhappy KDE 4.6.3 and Oxygen

    Hi,

    today I installed KDE 4.6.3. (OpenSuse 11.4). With this version a modified oxygen icon set was installed. Some icons, e.g. folders, are looking very ugly. They are looking a little bit like Tango icons. This mixture of original oxygen icons and the "tango-oxgygen" ones looks very inconsistent.
    You can repair this by installing the KDE 4.6.0 oxygen icon set (oxygen-icon-theme, oxygen-icon-theme-scalable) coming with OpenSuse 11.4.. Yast is showing some problems regarding KDE 4.6.3. you can ignore them.

    Michael

    I totally agree. New icon set is not only awful but also doesn't fit into KDE4 environment, whatsoever. I don't understand why this change has been made as minor KDE updates should just fix some issues, not add stuff people might not want (as they obviously don't want, just search other forums). Again, the new icon set indeed looks like some GNOME Tango-like theme.

    That's what I call a nice Oxygen stuff (too bad they can't be downloaded, can they?)

    I am sure many users would welcome if some RPM maintainer used this or the original icon set and uploaded it to SUSE repository.

    I have not found them yet for download. One might need to contact the team, who knows. For now, I got the original pack:

    Here (~ 23 MB) and big pack (KDE 4.6) here (288 MB). Additionally, Crystal theme looks very neat too. There we go. Still... don't understand how can somebody think that the latest KDE Oxygen Icons do fit into KDE. Dude!

    Speaking of icons, I've been trying to put the new flat icons for Chromium/Chrome in my panel but KDE won't save them. Even though it shows the flat icon in the menu, when I add it to the panel I get the old style icon.

    Has anyone else had any success with the new icons? (11.4 with KDE 4.6.3)

    Could you show me a screenshot of these new icons?
    Because i have also KDE 4.6.3 installed and my folder icons looks just like
    they did in 2009. (i had a screenshot of dolphin so i could compare)

    If there was a change, i didn't notice anything.
    I've got KDE 4.6.3 from the release repo for 11.4

    May sound surprising but I've noticed that Google Chrome icon's look depends on used KDE icon style. When I used Win7 theme Chrome icon was flat, and after the theme was changed back to default Chrome was 3D again. Maybe there is something about cache or whatever. I like older icon better, anyway. But there is always a solution: change it manually via a right click, uhm?

    That's my point. No matter what I do I can't get the flat icons to appear in the panel.

    My guess is that it's kept by tmp. Just don't try to clean tmp by hand (causes problems). Do it like that:

    Yast2 -> /etc/sysconfig -> Cron -> Clear tmp dirs at boot -> Yes

    If you want to keep tmp afterwards, change it again to No after boot. This should do the trick.

    BTW, I've installed the package from above (+200 MB) and now openSUSE looks like it used to. Works great.

    @Maaskant: If there was a change, i didn't notice anything.

    Look at this:
