[minor] Color of cpp and executable files could be different

Breeze introduced a nice concept of icon coloring,
- e.g. .cpp files are green,
- .h files are red etc.

It would be nice though if executable files which currently have the same color as .cpp files would have a different color. That would make them discoverable easier.

In the attached screenshot the "kompare" file is executable whereas the surrounding cpp files are not.

Maybe red for "executable".

(Or magenta because .h files are already red)
(Or make .h files a color not as "important" as red)

Oh, pardon me. Color suggestion for .cpp. The color of the executable mimetype is green.

Color suggestion for .cpp: maybe orange like the .py files? Or mint green like .cs files but that would be again similar to the executable green.

See also viewtopic.php?f=285&t=130558.

Should I file a bug for this here https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Breeze to have the issue properly tracked?

I think a detail on it can be in different color... for example the "arrow" in the icon can be yellow. easy for an eye to catch :)

Hi aramgrigoryan

you can choose between the different colors from the mimetype folder. we have design guidelines what is good because then we don't have to discuss whout is good or not.

cheers
