Ardis Basic Icon Theme by KotusWorks Ardis Basic Icon Theme by KotusWorks
Download link is below

This is official release of Ardis Basic Icon Theme, version 1.0.

Ardis is icon theme made to be simple and beautiful by design. All icons are created with accent on nice colors, long shadows and nice looking round shaped with white outline. Perfect choice for everyone who loves simplicity.


###############

Ardis Basic Icon Theme is based on open source Ardis Icon Theme

If you like this icon theme, and you have few bucks to spare, please consider buying one of two premium versions of Ardis Icon Theme:

Ardis Plus Icon Theme

Ardis Mega Icon Theme 

From version 1.0 of icon pack, Ardis splitted in 4 separate icon packs (1 open source icon theme [only for development] , 1 free icon theme, and 2 premium (paying) icon themes), and this was done because I didn't wish to make premium-only icon pack, and lock it only for those who can afford herself to buy it. This much better option for everyone who wish to have this icon pack, but they can't afford it.

###############

Installing instruction:

For KDE users:

extract content of the archive to ~/.kde4/share/icons/ or in ~/.kde/share/icons/ (depends on your distribution setup)

For everybody else:

extract content of the archive to ~/.icons/



Now you have a choice to customize icon pack, open Ardis Basic Icon Theme directory after installing the theme, and click on ArdisBuilder file, and follow instructions, after you've done with customization, select apply and exit Ardis Builder. After performing your customizations you need to re-apply Ardis Basic Icon Theme for changes to be shown.

If you like this project, and if you wish to help me maintain and expand this icon pack, please consider buying this icon pack, or if you wish, you can donate some funds using pay-pal to kotus.works@gmail.com (every $1 counts)

Love this theme. I've tried a pile of others and your work is by far the best.

I'm using XFCE and find that the icon for google-chrome-stable is different (standard google icon) when it is in the "task list" and when it appears in the upper left hand corner of the browser window, than when it is in a launcher (ardis icon). I much prefer the ardis icon. Is there a way to make the google-chrome-stable use the ardis icon consistently throughout XFCE?

I am using the latest ardis-icon-theme-master from github.

sadly, almighty google decided to make this as a "feature" few releases back (I think when they released their browser with aura framework in version 35), so whatever icon theme you use this will be the case with google chrome/chromium... I think a) this is their bug or b) this is a bug in modern days DE-s (I have the same issue on KDE)

I'm not sure if you've fixed this yet, but in the version linked in the description, the function 'make_if_needed' is broken (at least on xubuntu 14.10) in 'make_loader.sh' (line 3). Instead of creating the missing dirs, it just sits there reading from stdin (the keyboard in this case).
You can fix it by replacing line 4 with:
if [ ! -d $1 ] ; then ; mkdir $1 ; fi

No while-do-done is needed.

Awesome icon pack, btw. It looks great!

Also, gtk-update-icon-cache keeps generating invalid icon caches for your theme... Any ideas?
Reply
:icondavidcb:
davidcb Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
After doing some research on the gtk-update-icon-cache problem, I've found 3 possible causes:

a) spaces in icon names (largely unavoidable, I'd wager) [ github.com/moka-project/moka-i… ]
b) gtk tries to cache empty directories (not the case here) [ forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-… ]
c) icons are in folders which aren't named WIDTHxHEIGHT (also not the case here) [ forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-… ]

It seems the only way to work around problem a) (which is probably the case here) is to distribute a pre-built cache which doesn't contain the poorly named files, as stated by snwh.
This command will list the icons that'd need to be excluded for the cache to generate:
cd ~/.icons/Ardis\ Basic\ Icon\ Theme/ && ls -R | grep " "

Oh, I haven't been aware of this issue, thanks for reporting and for researching, I'll see what I can do regarding this problem (maybe you've solved it)

I assume this icon-cache is for xfce?
Reply
:icondavidcb:
davidcb Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Sorry for the late reply.

Yeah, it's for xfce.

After going through and temporarily moving the icons with non-standard names (i.e. spaces in the name), I was able to generate the cache.
I'll look into writing a script that will handle this automatically, since it doesn't look like there's any real way to work around it, and doing it on your end for each release sounds like a pain.

can you be more specific about that? what icons you had to remove? maybe we could work together to fix this, I've set up git repository here: github.com/KotusWorks/Ardis-ic…

Nice theme! Could you please also provide the SVGs with the theme? And/or can you please provide all icons in all sizes and not actions and devices only in small sizes?

:iconkotusworks:
KotusWorks Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I stopped providing SVG-s because they add too much to overall file size of the theme, and the SVG-s are not really usable (at least on KDE), but anyway I'll upload SVG-s on GitHub soon...

Jaki143 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
Why shouldn't they work with KDE? I use Flamini as svg-only theme and it works great. I just cannot use Rekonq which displays some icons oversized - but rekonq IMHO is dead anyways... I prefer the svg-only way because you just don't have any ugly and blurry upscaled icons, all is crisp and clear, even if you would use a toolbar size of 128 (no, I don't ;) - but I use bigger action icons than most icon themes provide which are png-only).

Well, if there's no problem with svg-s, then I would distribute svg only icon theme, it's much easier for me to distribute svg only theme than work with png-s...

The problem is with kde-s poor svg handling (and maybe other de-s have this problem too), just look at this example here: oi61.tinypic.com/2yzh6v7.jpg
Top row is how svg-s should look, and bottom row is how kde draws them... If you wish to see by yourself here is git of Ardis github.com/KotusWorks/Ardis-ic…

but if this isn't unresolvable issue, this can be fixed with remaking svg-s that are affected with this "bug"

Great theme, man. I know you were requesting screenshoots using the icon theme on the G+ page, too lazy to post there, so I'll share one here: imgur.com/mLXeWca not great but anyways. Xubuntu 12.04 with DockBarX.
Two requests btw,  new mail/messaging icon like you see in the pic would be great cause it looks kinda out of place now, an icon for XBMC and another for sabnzbd (a newsgroup/usenet downloader, .nzb mime icon too but not necessary) would fantastic since all other themes basicaly ignore it (sabnzbd I mean)
Cheers one of my fav icon themes, keep it up.

I'll make new icon for mail/messaging for you *buntu users, but I can't find the proper name of this icon...
XBMC, sabnzbd and .nzb are now added to list of priorities, thanks for the request!

The icons look nice, but your distribution model is absolutely reprehensible.

So the only way to get it on here is to pay for it. I'm not going to pay for an icon theme without first trying it and making sure that everything important gets themed. So I go to the adf.ly link. I wait for a bit, and an ad pops up OVER THE DOWNLOAD button, one of those ads that pretends to be the download button for the thing you're trying to get so it can give you malware instead. Not only that, but after I click the ad away and try to download the theme, it gives me "Setup_ODM.exe". What the actual hell is this?! Trying to push more malware with its "download manager", to be certain. Did you even think about this when you uploaded it there, or are you so preoccupied with getting paid that you don't care if nobody can actually use it? If it weren't for the PPA, nobody'd be able to use this, but even then, people who aren't on Ubuntu are still screwed.

You severely need to rethink your distribution model. Until you do, it doesn't matter how nice the icons look, you will have my condemnation instead of my support.

800+ people downloaded currently icons without any problems, I don't know what exactly bothers you, just enable adblock and download... reason for adfly link is here just because icon making process is not easy, and takes a lot of time, and I wanted to earn some cash so I can fix my laptop (I'm unemployed, and I don't have any income)...
I do care for people to use my icons, and they are not here to make me rich, I don't sell theme, purchase option is here just for donation reason, you don't need to pay anything ever, period. 

I've come up with better distribution model, and it will come by the end of summer, when icons will released 1.0...
If you wish for, I'll send you a adfly-free link to download?

Actually, that won't be necessary. I only noticed the skip ad button after a third view of the link. I didn't notice it because of three things:

1: The part of the page that is used for ads is giant compared to the small bar that adf.ly gets up top.
2: The ad that it presented was pretending to be a download page. You know, THOSE ads. Those ads that I never expect to have to deal with when it comes to acquiring Linux software.
3: On top of it being a download page, there was a second popup window; I initially thought *that* was the ad.

I don't blame you for wanting to monetize your work, but I think you need to find a better way to do so, like a better ad site that isn't going to present intentionally deceptive ads like the one I encountered, "OpenDownloadManager".

I disabled adblock before downloading, i waited 5 seconds, then i clicked "Skip" button and after there was only one button for download at MediaFire... No pop-up adds, no malware, no .exe files to download. Sorry but are you retarded or what? :o (Eek) Also if you want to know "that everything important gets themed" you can just ask here in comments or send message to Kotus.

Did you get a different ad than "Open Download Manager"? I don't use adblock; I use hosts-based blocking, and I guess that site isn't in the version I have. If I'm retarded because I got tricked by intentionally deceptive ad design, I'm calling bullshit on that.

I'm not going to ask the icon creator about every individual application I have that I need to be themed, that's a pain in the butt for everyone involved. It's better to just get the theme and see.

There's a bunch of mime types missing in v.04 or they're not named correctly or links are missing. Some examples: mp3, m4v, avi. Looks like the multimedia mimes are missing somehow. I've set the theme to inherit Flamini: a good but not perfect match. Would be nice to have mime types added at some point! Awesome icon pack!

I haven't created any mimetype icons for 0.4 release, that's the reason why they are missing... In 0.5 release I'll add just a few of mimetypes icons, and in later releases they will be completed. Thanks for the comment!
