GNOME Symbolic Icons
====================
Purpose of this icon theme is to extend the base icon theme that follows the Tango style guidelines for specific purposes. This would include OSD messages, panel system/notification area, and possibly menu icons.
Purpose of this icon theme is to extend the base icon theme that follows the Tango style guidelines for specific purposes. This would include OSD messages, panel system/notification area, and one we have close to 100% name spec coverage, the menu icons. We will be more open to extending -symbolic to icons that are outside of the realm of the naming spec. More so than in the case of gnome-icon-theme.
Icons follow the naming specification, but have a -symbolic suffix, so only applications specifically looking up these symbolic icons will render them. If a -symbolic icon is missing, the app will fall back to the regular name.
Primitive build instructions
============================
Running the render.rb script will chop up the "source" SVG into individual icons.
Running the r.rb script will chop up the "source" SVG into individual icons.
Targets
=======
Here's places that should make use of this style (and look up icons as -symbolic).
* Panel systray (and gnome-shell equivalents)
* Nautilus' sidebar eject emblem for mounted drives
* OSD (volume levels, display, eject etc)
* All menu items
