Breeze love LibreOffice

Jonathan Riddell ask on planet kde in November 2014 if we can make a Breeze icon set for LibreOffice. He also start a wiki page about the used icons. In the end of November Uri the main icon designer make 150 LO icons and after that the infrastructure in LO was prepared to have the posibility for another icon set (https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/13043/)

Now 4 Months later I proudly present the new LO Breeze icon set. We make more than 2.500 icons so that the Breeze LO icon set is mature. In future we can offer Oxygen and Breeze icons for LibreOffice. What do you say? I say whow. And I say thanks to the LibreOffice design team to offer us the opportunity to customize LO and for the warm welcome. Maybe breeze will be the backup for Sifr the LO monochrome icon set, because breeze is much more complete than Sifr. You be welcome to change this 😉


Now we have an easter egg challange for you. The last missing icons are sometimes not easy to find. So download the daily build (please wait until 26.03. I was to fast with the blog post) with the new breeze icons and search for missing icons. please comment on the blog post with an screenshot and a short description.

In addition to LO we also make Breeze icons for Kdenlive, Labplot, Yakuake and now I start with Digikam. If you want Breeze and Breeze-dark icons for your app, leave a post on the VDG Forum or an Issue on the Breeze Git repository.

We have also a realy nice resolution for icon temes, look and feel packages (megathemes) and app specific icons. YOU as the app developer can say which icon set you will support primary in your app. For example Oxygen. So you have to offer all app icons for oxygen. If the user want to use breeze-dark in the breeze-dark iconset from the system the app specific icons are included. So the user get an consistent look and feel on breeze and breeze-dark and the developers can offer what they like.

Of corse you can join us. Monochrome icons are sometimes difficult to find the right recognizion but easy to design. At google code in I had some realy realy good icon designers like Artem (no designer) or Buno. I will hope they join us again and you too. So leave a icon on https://github.com/NitruxSA/plasma-next-icons.

I ask my google code in student Artem why he support KDE:

My name is Artem, i’m 17 years old programmer from Amursk, a small town in the far east Russia. I’m study in public school and lead an ordinary life. I support KDE because… To be honest, i don’t know. It’s just fun. I do useful things and its great. Btw,i don’t even use Linux (i used to use it, and i wish i will switch my main os to kde based linux distro in the future, when dotnet will be officially crossplatform).

    I wonder if it is a great idea to give the „export to PDF“ icon the same colour that is only used for „close“ and „exit“, destructive actions, in the same menu. UX wise to me this seems a rather odd decision.

    Aside from that: it looks really nice

  2. Fri13 schreibt:

    Sorry but retouching the digiKam icon isn’t possible as it is part of its branding and functions in UI. It is as well combination of many applications that should work together.
    The icon got update a year or two ago.
