Ok it seems to matter is settled and they have gotten the icons they needed - big thanks to everyone who participated.

Has everyone linked their current email to the forum PM-system? It's not at all unrealistic that we will figure out a way to use all the brilliant suggestions we've gotten so far so it would be great being able to get a hold of you so we can credit the right people.

Also should we open up a "Lets do a Plasma Theme" thread? So systemtray icon designers and theme designers can slam out great themes together?

Also for all icon and visuals designers there is still this thread active!

All of these example icons [1] are 24x24. Do I need to change the ratio of my icons to fit them to 24x24?
Problem occurs with network mobile icons mostly because of padlock. They are simply to wide.
It's not big deal to make them 24x24 but they'll look different.

I think they should be 24x24, otherwise they will have different size in the applet.

I've just finished those icons, they are made in Gimp to speed up work. If there is a need I'll make them in vector. I also include xfc file in which all icons are separate and have appropriate names so you can easily make some mockups. And again I hope you like them.

They look nice, but unfortunately we need them in svgz file to be able use them/test them in plasma-nm. I guess we don't need them now, you can slowly working on them in your free time. We are going to release a new version with Fabian's icons. We can include them in the next version and modify them also for Plasma Next version, so we end up with same icon set for both Plasma versions (if possible).

So here they are. All of above icons converted to vector. I know, that they will not be include to official icon set, but I just want to fulfill my promise. And I'm sorry if someone was waiting for them so long, I had a lot of unexpected work last week.
I hope it will be useful for somebody even not related with this plasma project.

Awesome work.
Following the awesome icon thread, I would maybe consider https://www.iconfinder.com/icons/213041 ... n#size=128.

@jensreuterberg It's absolutely ok :)
@kdeuserk Will it look as good as above, but in 24x24 size?

@Leroux Great work!! Your icons could be definitely used in Plasma Next version of network applet, at least I think they fit very well there, but you guys should know more probably.

@Leroux I just tried your icons on Plasma Next version of plasma-nm and your icons look good there, but I've found you are missing network-wireless-80-* icons :)
