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

To exploit full power of customization script, you have to install zenity (recommended, used to see the GUI) and imagemagick (mandatory, used to color icons). If you use Ubuntu, they're in repositories, so you have only to install them from Software Center.

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

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

Sweet, this is the best icon set out there...I REALLY love it.  When's this next release?

I really don't know. The work is usually huge, so it depends on how many bugs I have listed and how many icons I want to include. I'm planning an android porting, so the work will be focused on adding android-specific apps to the project. I cannot provide an ETA, though. :(

What version of awoken do you have? It should already come with vlc and libreoffice!!!!
And what distro are you on?

Can you share me a screnshot of the missing vlc/libre/xmbc/geary icons, as well as a better explaination of what do you mean with "some icons are larger than others"?

Great job! But for me are missing the 256x256 icons for Gnome-shell...the 128x128 icons are slightly blurred...or no?

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

Sei sicuro che gnome-shell usi icone a 256px di risoluzione? Mi pare un po' troppo!

alecive Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013   Interface Designer
Azzarola hai ragione. Eh non ci ho mai pensato (e nessuno me l'ha nemmeno mai detto!). Da ora in poi cercherò di vedere se riesco a farle a 256, ma il mio computer è una ciofeca e credo potrebbe morirci :(

I'm sure you get constantly spammed with this, but this is the best icon set I've ever seen in my life. It's consistent, good looking, constantly updated, has an excellent script to automate installing it. You just go way beyond what you need to and make this the most pleasant experience one can imagine. You're truly a genius. I can't think you enough for making this beautiful thing.

Is it possible that the ppa is packaging for raring precise quantal and so on, so being that your machine is not listed it cannot find the package?
