AwOken by alecive AwOken by alecive
************************************************

WARNING: For the time being, I am sad to say that the project is discontinued. The iconset still works perfectly, but unfortunately I do not have enough time and work-life balance to focus on it any more. With enough third-party support, I can think of revitalizing it back, but for now I am not actively developing it any more. Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested in continuing its development!
For your information, my development efforts, even though little at this point, will all go into my new iconset, i.e. the phantasmagorically awesome FlatWoken icon theme . Download it here -> github.com/alecive/FlatWoken

************************************************

Please consider a small donation (1$ goes a long way) via PayPal to "alecive87@gmail.com"

************************************************

Before asking, if you have any problem, run at least once the customization script, and TAKE A LOOK AT THE README FILE!!!

************************************************

This iconset is only for GNOME/XFCE/LXDE. The kde version is available here -> alecive.deviantart.com/art/kAw…

************************************************

QUICK INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -> You can choose between:
  • PPA modality:

    1. Type in a terminal window:

      1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alecive/antigone
      2. sudo apt-get update
      3. sudo apt-get install awoken-icon-theme
      4. awoken-icon-theme-customization
    2. Follow Instructions
  • WARNING: with ppa subscription you can always get the newest version on your machine. But to see the improvements, you have to configure (or re-configure) at least once the iconset either for clear version, or dark version, or even a colored one.
  • 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
    3. Move the folders called AwOken, AwOkenDark, and AwOkenWhite in your .icons folder
    4. Type in a terminal window:

      1. cd .icons
      2. sudo cp -p AwOken/awoken-icon-theme-customization /usr/bin
      3. sudo cp -p AwOken/awoken-icon-theme-customization-clear /usr/bin
      4. sudo cp -p AwOkenDark/awoken-icon-theme-customization-dark /usr/bin
      5. sudo cp -p AwOkenWhite/awoken-icon-theme-customization-white /usr/bin
      6. awoken-icon-theme-customization
    5. Follow Instructions

RECOMMENDED PACKAGES

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

Thank you, now i have in my openbox menu half-colored-mess.
I guess is time to start looking for new grayscale icon set.

I really don't understand logic behind this update. Awoken is (was) the best grayscale icon set, without colors, ever made. It was your "trademark" - no colors. It was unique.
You could just make new, independent fork with colors, and leave old gray set be like it was.
But no, why doing things simple, when we could do it ass-backwards.
Now i have to change all my icon links in my openbox menu, just because you cant use different file names for new colored icons. And some old gray versions completely missing.

[link]

At least, give us a download link to the previous version without colors, so I can do downgrade.
Updates like this are fashion these days... completely throw away original desing concept. If i want colors i can use milion other icon sets.

I did't even read after the second line. Because I did understand that you didn't read anything about the changelog, the how-to pdf, or the journal post.

THE MONOCHROME VERSION IS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SCRIPT. I didn't remove any (crucial) functionality, but instead I increased them dramatically and I at the same time accomodated the desire of many. The desire of a minimal, stylish, colored iconset.

I'm (partially) flattered about your appreciation regarding the iconset. But your disdain for my efforts, for the thousands of hours that I wasted upon a completely-free project, make me feel very angry, make me feel that probably is better to throw everything away.

Do you think that I'm earning anything from this? Despite the near million of total downloads, I received a total amount of 200€ in donation throughout three years. For something like 3000 hours of work (and growing). Is this even fair?

The reason for which I'm doing this is because I believe in the project, I feel that I have something to share, I know that my work will improve the community. And, usually, users are happy to use a complete, uniform iconset that I give them completely for free and without any return. I'm not even a designer, I do robotics, this work doesn't even serve for my cv.
What do I get instead? Nothing but disdain and useless complains from you. And why? Because of your manifest ignorance about my work. How do you dare?
From now on, I strongly advise you, before posting something like this, to be informed, to be aware what you're talking about, to ask and not to claim, to be humble and not arrogant. Behind projects there are people, not robots. We have feelings, we have a life, and we are exactly like you.

Superb Icon set and a fantastic update!

One question, how can I change the trash icon? There doesn't seem to be an option in the customization script..

If I could fav this again I would!
Reply
:iconalecive:
alecive Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013   Interface Designer
Thanks!

Unfortunately, in order to simplify the script and let it more usable (Expecially for a new user) I removed the option to customize the trash (and a couple of other). The only way to change it is to use the no-color option, or to change it manually! Icons are still there, so it's only a matter of replacing a couple of them. :)

Hi, I'm glad to see one of my favourite themes updated :D :onfire:

Just a small note (regarding English usage, please bear with me). Instead of "Re-drawed", you should use Re-drew or "were re-drawn" (in cases where were appears before the word.

I hope that helps! (And is taken well :)

Hi sunnysagara, your post comes in handy! I'm just releasing a big update (this "big" is the reason for which it took a while), and you'll be pleasantly satisfied by it! :)
Btw, if you watched me, you would have discovered the latest development, since I did a couple of journal posts to explain my current work on AwOken :P

I had to reinstall this theme, because I switched to Linux Mint Debian.
The ppa method didn't work, but I did a manual installation and it looks pretty. I was pretty happy to see Netbeans in there too :D

I said it once and I say it again- I love this icon theme. For me is superior to Faenza.

Thanks, really apppreciated! Stay tuned with this theme, I will release a huge improvement in the next two weeks! With also a better ppa handling (right now, it doesn't work with latest ubuntu releases).

As a matter of fact, your icon theme fits my computer's style perfectly.

I have a question. I dont know if I can do it (due to time constraints), but in the case I can, can I make a Windows version of this pack?

Sure (as long as you'll release it with the same license that I used in AwOke [ie cc-by-sa])! I'll be also very happy to host it (or to signal it) if you want more visibility.

I just need to brush up my command line stuff a little, I think some of the root permissions are different in Ubuntu, since I spent so much time in Linux Mint (Debian)... whoa, but that was way too much info! (sorry)

anyways, again, great job! :)
