Send Some: File Manager Icon Set Love
last edited by
@elastic - so far as I know, this is just an exercise in lateral thinking... so I'm just offering an alternative solution. I hadn't particularly considered its merits...
0) I guess there would need to be a search box at the top...
- Holding down a blob (file) would offer the options to move/copy/delete etc (as with the right-click options of Ubuntu desktop)
I rather like the filemanager, but would like to see it move away from the old humanity icon set, and even the orange folder theme. I like the more modern style that sam hewitt https://snwh.org/suru has made, although for the purposes of ubuntu touch we could modify the color away from orange.
@mateo_salta the photo file & app file icon Because the color is too light or too bright, will not see the folder icon
Cool, I played with the intensity so it didn't wash out the icon
@mateo_salta Yes like this( '今'd
@mateo_salta The new light colours are better
Aaaand the time is up.
Thank you all indeed for joining this first experiment.
@3arn0wl I see your proposal as interesting but maybe in the information side. Maybe System-Settings > About > Storage
i could work there.
@mateo_salta I think the way to go with the icon set is feeding from upstream Suru project. You gave here a little twist with the colors. Conservative but effective

here is it! I took quite everything from suru-icon-theme. the video image could be not visible with SuruDark, but this was the color from video mimetype. in the music and models/templates I experimented a bit more with gradients making the back part of the folder more different from the near front part, a bit of contrast in addition...
@mymike also I'm not very sure about the right and bottom folds, not originally present in the folder icon, but took from mimrtypes
@mymike Very nice (you're late) I like the colors but not the folds. Good job (even you're late :D)
This is even later - well! you can't expect creatives to keep to deadlines!
A couple of ideas for a new desktop icon based on Suru:
And the suggestion that the app just be called "Files", rather than the more cumbersome "File Manager".
Also, I was wondering where the images came from on the documents themselves? And whether there were alternatives? The videos one is very orange...
@3arn0wl Ha ha ha... nicely played with deadelines
I like that icon.
About the name, actually in the desktop is called Files.
Also, I quite like the idea that Files itself is "coloured" white - white being the combination of the whole spectrum - but it's a difficult hue to work with! Maybe it could have a folded background with a spectrum of colours? But then again, that might be too much... A monochrome Icon seems the other extreme though - just dull.
(Apologies for my artwork not being up to snuff - I'm just trying to give an idea)
@3arn0wl There's a pattern and it's to use whitish icon on greyish background for core system app:
- System Settings (nearly)
- File Manager
and I kinda like it
Something like this:
Or perhaps this:
