Different icon theme

Postby symon1980 on Tue Apr 08, 2008 4:04 am

Just a quick suggestion, every kde distro seems to pretty much have the same icon theme... i noticed in kde mint the other day there is a different theme that looks much much better than the default. which is the nuvoX theme. :)
i know its easily changed, but would be cool if it was set to that icon theme by default to make the distro look different to all the other default kde distro's. :)

PLEASE! Any theme in the world but nuvoX - it "sucks harder than you'd have to do to eat meatballs thru a straw" (as we like say here in Sweden!) ;)
What's wrong with oxygene btw? :?:

I agree with Zwopper.
The distro's default theme must look professional and sober enough to please the most people.
Nuvox is too much playskool and flashy to my tastes.

I've never been much of a fan when it comes to to the nuvoX icons, but nuvoXT icons are a different class altogether. Every distro I have used it has always until now been my choice for icon set. Now I use NiksaVel-Mint icons which IMO should be the default icons for all the mint flavours.

I agree that NuvoxT is probably better than Nuvox. i just had a look at it for the first time.
Looks much better than Oxygen imo
just because it looks flashy doesn't mean that it isn't professional :)
its eye catching. the nicer the distro looks by default, the better.
Its still a top notch professional Distrubution of linux, best so far:)
