Description:

GetCrystal is a script that downloads the latest version of the Crystal
icons RPM from the Conectiva site, strips all unnessasary files and
repacks it as a tarball.

This script is totally legal! :)


Old versions 1.0 and 1.1 can be found here: http://www.maasonline.nl/GetCrystal/GetCrystal-1.0.tar.gz

i like the icons and i'd like to use them, but i'm not able to install icons!
i'm using mandrake linux 9, kde 3.0.3. everytime when i load the tar.gz-package and click on "install new design" (it should be translated correctly nothing happens! what's wrong here? please help me.
-------
Und das ganze nochmal auf deutsch, falls mir hier ein Deutscher helfen kann:
Immer wenn ich Icon-Packages reinlade und auf "neues Design installieren" klicke, passiert gar nix. Weder als User, noch als root.

I still cannot get crystal installed. I downloaded and tried 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2. I have tried to edit line 57 as mentioned earlier, but I run into the same problems.

Finally, we have to repack the icon files into a new tarball.
./GetCrystal: cd: crystal-icons-tmp/usr/lib/kde3/share/icons: No such file or directory

I'm running RH7.2 and /usr is the kdedir. So, my icons are under /usr/share/icons.

If anybody has any help, I would be most appreciative.

0. Login as root
1. Make sure you can use via wget a ftp server, i.e. you are behind a firewall.
2. Make sure alien is installed.
3. Edit the script on line 57 to
tar cvfz /crystal-icons.tar.gz ConectivaCrystal > /dev/null 2>&1
Now you can use /crystal-icons.tar.gz

i just noticed that the /16x16/filesystems/folder_open.png is in fact not 16x16 ... it's 18x18 ... when u use as much folders as i am in kmail (as much as i am means: scrollbar starts appearing to navigate to all those folders) sometimes some ugly stripes starts appearing. for those of you who also recognized that .. simply resize that one to 16x16 (woooow .. what a hint ;-) .. maybe everaldo wants to fix this in his release ..

You know, I've downloaded several editions of the Crystal Icon theme (now beta 2) and I can't get *any* one to put crystal icons across the menubars on kmail or konqueror (or any other app either). In otherwords, the icon buttons at the top of each of these are the old icons. Other icon themes still work.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm using a self compiled kde3.

have you tried to change the dimensions of the menubars' icons?? If i remember correctly the crystal icons theme has only 22x22 or even 16x16 icons, again i may be wrong...

Nothing to add except that it works, does exactly what it should. Took a little while on a modem connection though. Good work!

I had the same Problem, too. Try an other mirror, but not the mirror from netherland! With the Brasil mirror all run fine!

I had a similar problem. It turns out the processing doesn't like spaces in file or directories.
For example, it failed with a directory called "Download files", but when I changed the name to "Downloads" everything went fine.

Please try version 1.1, that should solve the problem ;)

Strange? Th escript is working well here... Perhaps you have a outdated wget version?

You can try to change the * into -45cl.i386.rpm, that should work.
