Description:

The bulidset GPL script is the backbone of the graphitekde icon packages. It is a GPL'd script that reduced time needed for iconset creation, testing, distribution, and downloading. For example, the original graphite iconset was approximately 20 MB. By using this script, the size of download is reduced to approximately 6 MB and the time to create and port new iconsets is drastically reduced.

README
Run the buildset script
Select your custom kmenu icon (xeyes is good)
Wait for the icons to convert
Wait for the tar.gz or tar.bz2 to build
Install using kcontrol

Why the script?
6.5 MB versus about 20 MB.
And the script can be used by icon artists! Just
create your 128x128 icons then use the script to
create the additional icons!

Added Info
-------------------------------
The SuSE icon added to the package (apps/suse.png) is under BSD license by tkdesign-studio.com provided on kde-look.org.
Additional icons provided by other icon packages with written / or distribution consent.
The GPL'd buildset script is included in the package, as well as the separate download.

Changelog:
3.1
Added gentoo kmenu / buildset support.
Improved the toolbar icons.
3.00 Slight fixes between 2 and 3, mainly little icons like
kmail inbox/outbox/sent_mail.
buildset script now supports different sizes in a variable (SIZES).
Added some SuSE type value-add stuff. Like icons for SuSEwatcher and
SuSEplugger. I'm not a SuSE user, so I don't even know what they're
for.

2.x Internal Templates for all sets
Fixed the script to support BSD too I hope.
Added more icons and synced sets up together.

1.01 Fixes
The script implicitly support whatever distribution you're using.
Before I inserted absolute paths for the utilities, but now I am
using a better method. :)
I also commented the buildset script as well as created an added
index.moreSizes.desktop file for kcontrol. You can look at the
buildset script and see spots where you can add more sizes, I used
56x56 as an example. Since SVGs are not going to happen, I can
at least provide this. Just keep in mind whatever sizes you
specify, the index.desktop file will have to reflect that. :)

1.00 Initial release
Rade8 packages are now using build scripts to limit the amount of
obnoxious bandwidth these packages use. Added icons including
(not limited to) kmixdocked, kmix_muted, new konqueror icons,
changed save icon, apps/icons...

Good idea on scripting the often tedious task of making icons. This script will make life easier for designers, I think.

I get the following error when the buildset script starts running:

convert: NoDecodeDelegateForThisImageFormat `Macos_Classic.png'.

etc, etc, for every icon that convert tries to resize.

I've tried recompiling different versions of imagemagick, but no change.

Any ideas what might be causing this and/or how to fix?

Thanks!

I get this. :(

"You get your choice of kmenu icons. Select from:

xeyes, redhat, mandrake, suse, openbsd, or nvidia and enter it now
suse
Using suse.png as your kmenu icon.
Invalid selection (suse), exiting..."

The side icons (ie. summary, mail, contacts, etc ) for Kontact aren't getting changed when I apply the rade8-3.0 icon theme.

It's really annoying because I think the default kontact icons suck, and they _totaly_ clash with the sharp graphite look.

I'm using KDE3.3 (Kontact 1.0), any ideas?

Thanks!

I noticed that too as I also use kontact. The worst part of it is? For some reason when I tried overwriting kontact with new icons, it didn't take. I just checked something else though, and it seems I might be able to fix it... I'll be updating the sets soon, hopefully this change will merge back into the default template for each set. Thanks for the info.
