K Icon Set

K Icon Set

Hello all, I am happy to announce another release, 1.15. The major difference is that I have collated all the icons into one set. It was getting a bit hard to manage as multiple ones and the size increase is minimal. All the icons are in there, plus some new; by request some new mail actions (I think they need a bit more work but they're better), a new desktop icon that fits better with the theme and possibly a few others I've forgotten about. So, enjoy!


A MASSIVE thank you to Lars Gardmo for offering to host these icons. The first link is with Filecrunch though, I would urge you to try this first to save Mr Gardmo's bandwidth :)

This is the most comprehensive icon set for KDE. Not only does it take the best icon art and combine it into an attractive set, it also uses a fine balance of photo realism and simplicity to achieve a clear interface. The icon 'actions' folder contains nearly 300 icons designed with standardisation in mind and they are all created to take advantage of the higher screen modes in use today. All actions can now go up to 128x128! I would like to say a BIG thank you to all the artists who's original art work make this set possible. This is work in progress and I would ask for feedback from any users who would like to input to the project. Oh, and if you like it, remember to vote good :)

99% of this set is GPL now and what's not is most likely creative commons. PLEASE abide by the licence rules, if you use icons from this set please research and credit the appropriate people. I have been given permission to release other peoples art work under the GPL so respect the licence.

Enjoy ")

*You will need cookies enabled to download the sets.

Just download the archive, uncompress and copy to /usr/share/icons then choose OS-K icons from the KDE control center.

If you would like to change the 'kmenu' icon go into the 'actions' and 'apps' folder and remove '_YOURDISTRO' from the name, there are a couple of icons you need to do this too.

Have fun.


All the 'app', 'devices' and 'actions' icons are under the GPL. 'filesystems' and 'mimetypes' are yet to be sorted/confirmed. Please respect licensing rules when using these icons.
