As some of you may know, I've been working on making Oxygen icons

Do you see any unrecognizable icons at http://www.javierllorente.com/tmp/
The green arrow for the parent directory is illogically pointing right
upwards. I'd suggest to mirror the image so it points left upwards
instead. (Or take the icon from the crystal set - which is, well, not
perfect, but at least quite clear.)
OK. I'll change it to see if it looks nice.
The icons for .ods and .odt don't seem to convey
any meaning at all.
Nothing I can recognize anyway (it's just a patch of gray).
I was thinking of using the same doc, ppt and xls icons for odf filetypes as
The icon for .pl might be some kind of animal, but
I'm guessing. It could
be anything else.
It's not very clear. It's a camel btw ;)
The icon for .torrent doesn't make me recognize
I agree 100%. It could be a bookmark for instance.
I have to find/create a replacement or leave it with the "blank" icon.
The rest is actually quite nice.
I want to make it easy to enable. Quoting from
the README file included
in the apache2-icons-oxygen package
Is there a better way to do it?
Yes, it'd be much simpler if you provide a config file that is ready to be
included in any virtual host. Just ship a config file containing the
Alias /icons/ /usr/share/apache2/oxygen-icons/
Options Indexes MultiViews
Allow from all
IndexOptions FancyIndexing VersionSort NameWidth=*
Then as a user you'd only need to put one line into any vhost config:
It's better also because no shipped config files need to be modified.
That's what I have. The thing is that, if you don't have virtual hosts or if
you want to use the icons Apache-wide, you would have no other choice than
modifying shipped config files (that's what I understand).
My idea is to
make Apache's directory listing more beautiful. It's
already part of the Apache Build Service project and if you like it, I
could submit it to Factory.
The latest rpm packages are available at
Build Service project:
I was also thinking about dropping apache2-icons-crystal unless someone
likes Crystal icons.
Comments and suggestions are welcome!
Thanks for your feedback,
