Description

Hi,

Thanks to ubuntu's new ubuntu-one program, there are now specific "upload" and "download" icons. They are similar to the classic "up" and "down" icons that transmission uses now, but have a cloud that helps convey the idea better. They are located in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/emblems. I am attaching both icons and a quick mockup of transmission using them.

hi frandavid100,

nice to hear from you; it's been awhile :)

are these icons made available through some stock icon key in Ubuntu?

Hi Charles! Sorry for the late reply.

I am not sure what you mean with "stock icon key" actually. Could you please rephrase that?

comment:6 Changed 13 years ago by charles

what I'm asking is if there is any way inside of GTK+ to find these icons on the system, or if I'd have to bundle them along.

The current icons (the up and down arrows) are provided by the OS, so they play nicely with theming and don't increase the size of the tarball.

But if these new icons are only available on Ubuntu, or if there's not a way to get to them from (say) gtk_image_new_from_stock(), I'm not sure that they're an improvement.

Oh, thanks for explaining that. They are not included by default in GTK, although they are included by default in Ubuntu installs. You would have to bundle they if you want them to show in other distros, though.

I can propose them for inclusion as standard GTK icons (since they stand for a very usual function and quite a few apps could use them) and get back to you if that ever happens.

That sounds perfect. Marking as `wontfix' for now but I'd be happy to use stock GTK icons if/when they're accepted there.
