cheeaun, Excellent updated icons @ http://iconpacks.mozdev.org/phoenix/


Love the new image icon - but what does "...though it might be useless" mean? Also really like the fact that you can download them all in a library. IMHO, these should be the default Phoenix icons! :mrgreen:

I needed to convert to .xpm, ( screenshots on http://themes.mozdev.org/phoenix are mostly done under Linux )

[OT] like <a href="http://cafelog.com/">b2</a> btw [/OT]

Oh, I finally figured out.
Turns out Phoenix is built without a $phoenixdir/chrome/icons directory. When I add this directory, with a default/ subdirectory that contains main-window.xpm and main-window16.xpm, Phoenix gets an icon in the taskbar (and on the titlebar for WM themes that display app icons).
I wonder why Phoenix builds without an icons directory?

[OT] heh :) [/OT]

probably because no icons are included with phoenix.

The avatar is my Phoenix desktop icon. I designed it yesterday, in the middle of a boring AI lecture. I liked it so i applied the usual pipeline (scan->gimp->autotrace->sodipodi->gimp).

I have a vectorial version if you want to tinker with. Just send me an email.

Not if they change to Firebird. :)

Anyway, I find cheeaun's icon the most stylish. Nice work there ;)

edit: Hmm, just noticed Rawsock's avatar. Look much better (read: "evil" :)) than the built-in one for sure.

I like Rawsock's too, but at 16x16 in my quick launch I imagine it'd be indistinguishable from the Moz icon... in orange / yellow it'd be killer though.

My fave is still Grayrest's though.

The orange/yellow version seems fine, but too "eye burning" for me. Maybe i'll make them darker . Any idea ?

These are so awesome!! I think they are both great, but if you think the one is blinding, try putting a black outline somewhere inside it to give some contrast.

Anyway, with these Icons I hope they change the name to Firebird :)

Someone earlier pointed to an icon I had made for phoenix. They gave you the preview file (which is downloadable), but if you are using unix/linux than you may want my to download my tarball since I have scaled it to various sizes. the following will give you access to either the tar file or the icon preview.

If you want, you can vote on whether or not you like it right on the site where I posted it.

Thanks

The icons posted in my website are 128x113 png's. Just a little GIMPing an you should get the right height.

Otherwise, download the .svg version and use a program like sodipodi or Corel Draw to render it.

Ow :( , looks that i gave birth to a dead icon. The new name won't be related to flaming birds.
