Unabashed Tango Theme by Lokheed Unabashed Tango Theme by Lokheed
The Unabashed Tango Theme.

Not nearly complete. Does not conform to the Freedesktop.org naming spec. Some residue of the "old GNOME" style. Still interested?

This is the unofficial, unadulterated, unabashed personal Tango theme of Lokheed as it was the moment he left Linux (Gentoo) for Apple Mac OS X. It is anything but complete, but there are many icons unique to this theme that are nowhere else to be found.

Accolades go to Jakub Steiner and the entire crew working on the Tango Desktop Project. Credits also go to certain individuals in the community that have also added to the Tango development over this past year.

This set is released under the CC license and is free to distribute and modify as long as you yourself, release it under the CC license containing the very same provisos mentioned previously.

Enjoy.

EDIT: Fixed an issue with the emblems, please replace this new version with previous one.

Looks really awesome :)
It'd be great if freedesktop opened some kind of gallery, where users could submit works and other do "groups" of icons to make a whole theme. Freedesktop, or any other entity.

I finalized some of the icons from here to be full Tango. They are available in all sizes (for Windows XP)

I think you would do better to contact Jakub (jimmac.deviantart.com) as he is the original author of the Tango set.

There has been a request/move towards having your icon set on ubuntu repository. Only two points remain

Your quote "Not nearly complete. Does not conform to the Freedesktop.org naming spec. Some residue of the 'old GNOME' style." I guess you won't be doing that & it would stay like that.
Further "It definetly needs some work-overs including some of the icons changed like the x-shockwave-flash mime-type icon changed to include the new logo, and Adobe as the owner of Flash on that icon. It also needs the docs conformed to secifications." <;pianoboy> and I think he's right if nothing else then about using Adobe's logo. See if u can do something about that. Hoping that you do improve it & lots of people from ubuntu can take pleasure out of your beautiful stock. I have also seen the other Icon Set which you have done & its also beautiful. If you can do something it would be nice :)

They work great on my machine since ages. I do actually the image you use in the preview seen above, the dark blue leaves on a light blue background. Could you publish that as a wallpaper? I'd love that.

Great icon set. I especially like the extra mimetypes, and the icons for OO (I've been looking for an alternative for the default OO icons for ages). However, I dunno if it's just me but it seems like some icons in the package are corrupt.

And it won't because GNOME 2.16 follows more or less better Freedesktop.orgs specs than previous releases of GNOME. :P

Your best bet is to get Tango from their SVN and compile and install that SVG set. Or get some other 'already packaged' version of Tango. Of course it will be missing bit of Lockheeds magic, but I can tell you that you won't be missing much.

Lokheed and his friend made an ernomous good job making new gimp icon set. It comes with newest gimp pre-release. Ten points for that. Thank you Lokheed! :)

Great work Lokheed, thanks to you I have Tango themes for almost everything on my desktop! It's by far the best I have ever seen Linux look.

I'd like to suggest a few things to make this set even more perfect:
-Add the line "Inherits=Tango" to the index.theme file, so any icons which might be missing can be pulled from Tango stock (assuming it's installed).
-Rename the theme to something like Tango-Unabashed, so users can keep regular Tango around as well (they'd never use it, of course... but it would courteous to leave the option ;-) )
-Delete the 24x24 Firefox and Thunderbird icons. They're just the stock icons (not Tango at all), and if you followed my first suggestion, they'll be replaced with actual Tango icons.

Thanks.

I understand you have no reason to continue working on this set, however it would be nice to read something "Sure dude, I'm going to polish it a bit though I won't use it myself." :)
Especially, I'm talking about the... tada, mimetypes. I know there are a lot of them but I guess you get it - in some dirs I have two types of icons, the good old gnome classic and the new class. That's kinda unpleasant.

The most common cases are:
.rb files (gnome-mime-application-x-ruby)
.php files (gnome-mime-application-x-php)
.swf files (gnome-mime-application-x-shockwave-flash)
.pl files (gnome-mime-application-x-perl)

So? :)

The thing is emblems work on a grid like system from the .icon files of the same name. If you open them in a text editor you will see the simple system that is used to place the emblems in whatever arrangement you like. Either most themers dont know this or are too lazy to care about it. I would say most dont know because the documentation in Linux is purely nonexistent...

Reminds me, go into the 48x48 folder and move all the files in "ico" to the mimetypes folder and delete the ico folder afterwards. This will add proper grid spacing for emblems for tons of mimetypes. Forgot to fix that before a release, but its been updated now in the zip.

Oh, finally. Next generation graphite icon theme ;)
Btw, what's the problem with the emblems in other icon themes? I like the way your themes place it - in the bottom left corner, more like over the icon itself. Majority of themes places it in the top right corner, more like _next_ to the icon ... and that's ugly.
Great icon set. I have to test it...

I love these, they are truely the sole meaning of the word amazing, if that makes any sence, I would love someday to fix some of the mime types up, other than that, I don't know what's so unfinished about it.

Thanks a lot for those comments. Yes, I too am a perfectionist (heh, does it show in my work?) and is the reason I theme at all. I, like you, can't stand "good enough" or anything that is anything but perfect.

This world would be so much better if people took that extra little bit of time to polish the rough spots. Again thank you for the really nice words :) It is users like yourself I cater my work to!

OMG, I love it. It made my day, lol... *continues drooling over the beautiful pixel perfect icons* <3333

It's sooo perfect and it finally makes Tango usable for me. I could never stand Tango before, it was way too incomplete and unpolished and it bugged me to death. Although this set may not be quite as insanely complete as gperfection, it's still infinitely better than any other Gnome icon set out there, and I can finally take a break from the graphite suite for awhile.

Thanks so much for this and for all your work. Your themes are nearly the only ones I can stand using anymore, especially the icon sets. I'm way too much of a perfectionist and you're the only one who makes things look complete and polished enough for me :P

I'll miss your work a lot, but I'm glad that you've found a system that works better for you. I wish you all the best. :D

Thanks.

One thing Gentoo taught me was the guts of the Linux operating system. It allows for a really deep knowledge of the behind the scenes workings. But after a while, who really cares. Now I am very happy to have something that simply just works well.

Though I have always been a tinkerer, so I think all that stuff is my nature anyway. I find myself peering into the seedy underbelly of Mac OS X. Give me some time and I am sure I will be hacking the hell out of this thing too.
