fresh breeze or a thunderstorm?


I made my first pull request on kde *happy* and my first work was update the breeze icon set. Now what was happen the last time at the breeze icon set?

Breeze icons for the following KDE/Plasma apps

  • Kdenlive
  • ktorrent
  • Kmouth

Breeze icons for GTK apps

  • firefox

Breeze icons for other apps

so hope the distributions will update there repositories and you will get an up to date fresh breeze. With the work of the last months we also fix some bucks like the rating icons in amarok and baloo.

gtkBut why should this be a thunderstorm?

Most of my night I make LibreOffice breeze icons and now Breeze is one of the completest icon set in LibreOffice, only Galaxy the root icon set is more complete but I don’t know where the „missing“ icons will be used so if you find some missing breeze icons in LibreOffice let me know.

In addition to this Breeze will be released with the new LibreOffice 5.0 in July and maybe it will be the standard icon set for LibreOffice on Mac OSX. It it the fallback for Sifr the first monochrome icon set in LibreOffice, so the change that you see breeze outside of KDE/Plasma will be really high.


Missing Apps

I know the next weeks/months a lot of applications will be ported to KF5. If you’d like to offer Breeze icons please ask on https://github.com/NitruxSA/plasma-next-icons we now have an good solution between standard icons and app specific icons and hope we can offer an Breeze and Breeze-Dark experience as you wish.

Contributors are always welcome. There is a lot of stuff to do, so feel free to make a pull request.


wallpaper contest results

Hi I made a wallpaper contest for Plasma 5.3 and everybody waiting for the winner. So here are the winners:

sudo apt-get install plasma-workspace-wallpapers

or use your package manager to install the winners.

Overall there are 102 wallpapers submitted. Most of them via opendesktop.org. So the winner is the user. You can use the new wallpapers via the Get new Wallpaper button and can use all submitted wallpapers.

Attached some of the submitted wallpapers (most of them are not in plasma 5.3 so you have to install the package to see the best of the best). I have to say thanks for all contributors and hope that you are happy with the results.

I would like to start another competition for one of the next releases but I’m not 100% happy how the competition works last time. I love Opendesktop because you have there everything you need for a competition but you have to login to vote and I don’t get that much votes. My target would be that the user can/will vote the winner.

have a nice summer and don’t forget to make some nice wallpaper pictures. The next release will come faster than you belief 😉

Sorry that I’m so late with this blog post I made it 2 mounts ago but, don’t ask me, technical problems, sorry.
