[clug] KDE4’s Oxygen icons under GNOME

With the release of KDE 4x, the project has adopted the freedesktop.org
specification for naming icons. This means the icon names are the same
as under GNOME, which also uses the freedesktop.org spec.

I figured that if that’s the case, it shouldn’t be too hard to get the
icons working under GNOME :)

The end result should look something like this:

I wrote a bash script which does this. Grab it, and make it executable.

wget http://smartclan.com/files/oxy-gnome.sh ; chmod +x oxy-gnome.sh

You will need both the GNOME icon set and the Oxygen icon set somewhere
on your machine (the script will ask where they are). If you're using
Ubuntu Hardy, just run:

sudo apt-get install kde-icons-oxygen

Once you have these, run the script as your regular user and away you go!


It’s not perfect as not all icons match up and there are some missing,
but it's pretty sweet. This can be fixed over time by adding some
special cases, but I haven’t done it yet.
