Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247952
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:51:31 EST
Description of problem:
Tango! is modern color palette and icon theme. Tango! is making icons look
professional (not child-like like our Echo).
Echo uses fancy colors which make our eyes hurt.
Tangofied palette and styling.
Echo is not Tango. There is no reason to mix up all the styles. If you like
Tango better, thats fine. Just use it.
How it will look?
Pidgin uses Tango as default and some other applications also.
I know, you'll not make other icons so they'll be mixing in system.
It will look fancy and stupid.
Did you ever thinked about it?
In my opinion the perspective in Echo and color pallette are too fancy.
Tango! style guidelines are well polished and accepted.
Please, just use Tango then.
[[ Please, just use Tango then. ]]
Do you can read ?
Fedora will use fancy pixmaps and Echo icons as defaults and will not inherit
any normal iconset, so even if we don't want, the style will be mixed.
You should repackage any application containing icons and replace pixmaps with
own to not mix the icons, but this is stupid.
You should use Tango! palette and styling, because Gnome will use it and most of
applications are migrating to Tango! without inheriting set by Gnome iconset.
Again: I'm not proposing mixing the styles, but "adopting" the Tango style, like
the Gnome iconset does.
Take it to fedora-art-list, please.
I can't. I have two reasons:
1) I've never used mailing lists and I don't know how they work.
2) I have no account on fedora-art.
I think you could do it and link here.
