  • Download the iconset:

    1. EDIT: for now, deviantArt doesn't let me upload the iconset due to its restrictions. So, from now on, the icon set will be available from this link (on my dropbox account) -> dl.dropbox.com/u/8029324/AwOke…
      MIRROR -> mega.co.nz/#!mEkXET4T!Y8htlSzg…

    2. Extract the archive, enter in the newly-created directory called AwOken-2.5, and extract these archives as well

While I believe that this icon set is the best there is for Linux I do believe it can be improved a bit. My main critique would be that I think the icons are a bit blurry when they are under 32px. This might be by design as it might offer better support when scaling the images, but I guess I am a little picky and prefer sharper icons. For this reason I have replaced the status icons with Faenza as they are a bit sharper and come off a bit cleaner. I would be glad to share a screen shot if requested.

Thanks

Hi, I'm using Trusty now and can't customize properly the icons. What I get is standard set of icons no matter what I choose during customization. Are you going to update the script? You could instead provide me with some information how to change icons manually, do I need to change them in .icons folder in my home or rather in /usr/share/icons? I'd appreciate an update though if you can do it because your icons are great and you did really great job putting everything together. Great work!

Hello. I'm using them on 14.04 and I had a problem because I was copying and pating the icon folder everywhen. Mmm no.
Make sure you have only one copy of each folder in ~/.icons (1 copy of AwOken, one of AwOenDark, etc) and the other files from the zipped archive.
Make sure you don't have the same AwOken folder at /usr/share/icons or any other places and then follor the readme instructions (copy the scripts, etc, and run the configuration script).

That worked for me.

Also, if the problem persists, make sure you have permision on the icon folder (happend once to me)

still having issues with the customization script and Xubuntu 14.04 Beta 1 and Zenity 3.8.0-1. I'm providing a link to a screen shot as to how the script looks.

I tried uninstalling Zenity and running the script from the terminal. I tried colorizing the set but it didn't colorize any hidden folders or the "Public" or "Templates" folders.

Can you give me the output from the terminal? What do you mean with "hidden" folders? Please remember that the only folder type that will be colorized is the token one (the other folders will be left as they are).

:iconpissnaround:
pissnaround Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2014  Professional General Artist
Yes, I was using Token. By hidden I meant any folders starting with a period. I.E. the ones that are invisible until you select "Show Hidden Files" from the file manager. such as .icons, .themes etc.

Installed these in Xubuntu 14.04 beta 1 which uses Zenity 3.8.0-1. Apparently the customization script doesn't like this version. I get a menu instead of a list which only has two options, "Take a look at the README PDF...." or Colorize The set". Any thoughts?

"ls ~/.icons"

and

"ls /usr/share/icons"?

Well, partly my fault. I was using a dark theme and didn't see everything that was going on. When the script runs after the splash screen it opens the window which used to have all the options to select in a list. Now the window is a scrolling list which can't be resized and I can only see two options at a time. I can scroll to the other options and the script still does seem to work. I changed the clear folders to token. not sure why I am getting a scrolling window however.

I just installed them by extracting them to ~/.icons. The three Awoken folders are listed there. It's the same way I have installed them in about 50-100 Linux guests in VirtualBox over the last couple years. I could uninstall them from ~/.icons and reinstall them into /usr/share/icons or use the PPA if you think at would help.

This is the best icon set i have used in linux .. i love the dark ones ...i have been using this icon-set without any problem in ubuntu and elementary os but recently i have switched to archlinux and the customization script doesn't seem to work..
however there are a couple of things that i noted
first of all u can't launch the customization script as normal user.
after the script runs only the programs that run as root seems to be customized
for example thunar as normal user doesn't show the customized icons but when i launch thunar as root everything seems to be customized
i even created a symlink of /usr/share/icons to my home folder
nothing seems to work ..
anyway thanks for this incredible iconset..Clap

why you can't run the customization script as a normal user? Theoretically, you shouldn't never use the script as root, otherwise it would work only for applications launched as root! Can you provide me more information?

As ~mintystark says, it seems unfortunate that the icons are blurry under 32 pixels size, because I really like the simply style of your Mono mode.
I hope it will be taken into account for the next version!

But thanks for your work!

Oh sorry if my comment hurts you, I didn't want. My mistake if I thought that was your fault, is rather only my feeling, because I was searching for icons looking like those of lubuntu-default (13.04)! But as you said, it's this "aura" that's make me think icons are blurry, and I don't want you avoid to add shadows!
Here I give you a screenshot, between the two different icon themes : hpics.li/383da8a

Thanks for your explanations!

And for the tag, you just have to add @ in front of the name ;) (Wink)

alecive Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2013   Interface Designer
Ok, let's make it clear.
Maybe this is a personal issue of mine, but my problem is that I honestly don't see the blurriness at all with the current version of the iconset. Previously, there was this problem because icons were available only at 128x128px size, so basically the system had to scale them and this added blurriness. But, since a year or so, I specifically added a 24x24 folder in order to avoid that! Now the system has to scale only sizes <24px.

In summary, I admit that there might be a specific case in which some smaller icons are blurred (e.g., the icons on the gnome-shell top panel, which are 16x16px), but I honestly don't think that at that size you're able to detect this.

The only thing that can be confused with blurriness is the fact that at a small size the shadows become very small, and they might seem blurriness because they add an "aura" around the shapes (kind of). The only solution that I might think of is to remove shadows on little icons, but I honestly would like to avoid that since that shadow is one of the characteristic design features of AwOken icon set!

If you want to make a reproducible example feel free to do that! Problem is that I should be at your desk with your laptop in order to fully understand this :(

PS: how did you "tag" mintystark? I didn't know about this feature!

I'm LOVING the colorized version of this iconset.  It's my favorite.  I only have one complaint...and it may just be me not knowing what's up...but can you look here: i.imgur.com/CrjhAC8.png and tell me why my Home, Desktop, Trash, and File System icons aren't colorized?
Reply
:iconalecive:
alecive Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013   Interface Designer
Because I had to resolve a trade-off in this regard. Basically, with the default gray version you have the "colored" version (100 or so icons with a lot of color + the usual monochrome one) and the "all-monochrome" version (all icons monochrome). When you colorize, you should have the same exact icon set with different color (ie red instead of gray), so you will still have the possibility to switch from the "colored" to the "non-colored" version.

Hence, if you want the all-red solution, simply run the script, choose to customize your custom iconset, and select the 'no-color' option when asked. You can also modify all of the usual things, like folders and so on! I suggest you to try the awoken ribes folders, they're perfect for your setup! :)
Reply
:iconlehthanis:
Lehthanis Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013
I actually think I prefer token over ribes.  ribes are too "shiny" I don't think I care for the white in them.  But your suggestions worked perfectly!  My iconset is rocking now except for the trash and filesystem icons.  They're still colored and not matching the red.

Thanks so much for the help!

Volevo dire che quando si usa gnome-shell le icone nella parte centrale, quando si clicca su "attivitā", sono 256 x 256. Per cui le 128 x 128 (che č la dimensione massima di questo tema) risultano appena appena sfocate.
