Description

Based up this PR: https://github.com/deluge-torrent/deluge/pull/156

  • Still not entirely happy with small icons e.g. download/seeding. Perhaps use a lighter contrast arrow instead.
  • Monochrome deluge icon for ubuntu themes (22px):
    • ubuntu-mono-dark
    • ubuntu-mono-light
  • Consider requirements for colour-blind users.
  • Small improvements could be made to the all icon.

Out of curiosity, what is the impetus to change the current icons anyways?

To me it's looking a bit dated. The icons have some design issues such as symmetry is off and not being centred and it's quite hard to modify existing svgs easily. I had been creating a new droplet shape on and off for a few years, to fix those issues. Then realised I could create a more modern look after reading about google material design.

There is a forum post with similar points: http://forum.deluge-torrent.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=49823
