Comment 1 shaunmcdonald131 2007-07-21 00:57:25 UTC
Adding macport to cc. This will affect/improve the X11 version too. This is a follow up to a comment in issue 79304 artguy: Are you able to improve the icons for OpenOffice.org?
Comment 2 shaunmcdonald131 2007-07-21 00:58:43 UTC
I'm thinking that this should be re-assigned to marketing>art.
Comment 3 artguy10 2007-07-21 01:47:54 UTC
I think I would be able to improve the other icons, too. But after a couple days when I get the chance.
Comment 4 Olaf Felka 2007-07-21 07:50:56 UTC
@ kendy: please have a look.

ericb@artguy10 I have closed 79811, 79812 , Shaun closed 79813 ... Why all those issues ?
Comment 7 artguy10 2007-07-22 06:05:23 UTC
When I submitted the bug, it just didn't do anything, so I tried again... and again... and it still didn't work so I emailed OOo.

Created attachment 46966 [details] Smaller main icon; don't really know if this fixes the cause of the problem; icon still looks dirty on right-edge
Comment 9 artguy10 2007-07-24 18:44:08 UTC
I'm not sure if I made it a little _too_ small, but I replaced the icon on my Mac and can't find the original to make other changes. Could someone upload the original or take care of it themselves? (Also, downsizing it effects all sizes of the icns file, right? Are the smaller versions already the right size, or are they too big, too?) In the Resources folder of the OOo app, there are over 30 icons. Must they all be changed?
Comment 10 shaunmcdonald131 2007-07-24 19:57:51 UTC
Why not download another build of ooo to get the icons from there? Reassigning to artguy10, since he knows what he's doing. Please also update all the other app icons in the .app for when they are used in the future when` we introduce separate apps. The file names end -app.icns

Comment 12 artguy10 2007-07-24 21:03:25 UTC
Alright, I'll see what I can do. smsm1, thanks for the suggestion; now I remember I still have the .dmg file. :)

artguy10 : please have a look at : http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=43000 But maybe this is the old version you'll find attached, and better use the icons in the bundle.

Comment 18 artguy10 2007-07-24 22:36:01 UTC
Experimenting with just the main icon for now, here are my results, and please give me feedback. I downsized the icon (layer, not transparent background) using Gimp (bicubic) to 115px. The size is now nice for use in the dock. However, it is noticeably softer than the original. Furthermore, the smaller versions of the icon have also decreased greatly in size by this downsizing (yet I don't know their use anyhow). I'm thinking that using the actual SVGs would be better for getting a sharper image, but I would only be able to recreate the largest icon size with the tools I have (which may be fine for the Mac version?) Where are the SVG originals?
Comment 19 artguy10 2007-07-24 22:52:15 UTC
Note: Actually, if I can get a png icon with multiple sizes, I can turn that into an icns file. Is there a way to create multiple sizes of an image in the Gimp?
Comment 20 artguy10 2007-07-24 22:56:09 UTC
On third thought, perhaps (if other people think that is a good idea) I can attempt to create icons for OOo for Mac to fit in with the crystal icon theme common on Mac icons. Like, GIMP and Inkscape and Microsoft Office all have unique icons for the Mac version, perhaps this should hold true for OpenOffice.org?
Comment 21 artguy10 2007-07-25 01:21:34 UTC
I found the SVG files for all but the main app icon. Here is a proposal for a different icon stile for the Mac version, also. (Perhaps I could use the symbol instead of the letter, or other changes, or just stick with the standard, but here they are.)

Comment 24 artguy10 2007-07-25 01:33:08 UTC
On the topic of fixing the other icons, I can make the icns files for all the icons at the proper size without the dirty edge with the smaller versions as part of the icns file. The only thing is that I am unsure whether the smaller versions will have the proper size; I don't know how they are used.
Comment 29 artguy10 2007-07-25 01:52:54 UTC
Created attachment 47063 [details] main resized (though not from SVG file)
Comment 32 artguy10 2007-07-25 01:55:45 UTC
Alright, that's all the icons for Mac, resized. Please verify: That I got all of them That they are at a good size That it is okay regarding the sizes of the smaller versions contained in the icns file Okay, is that it? Will they be included in the next build for Mac? Is there something else I have to do, or can I mark the issue as fixed?
Comment 33 artguy10 2007-07-25 02:01:31 UTC
So the main app icns file will appear in the Applications folder, and that will open the OpenOffice.org Application sub-folder containing the different apps?
Comment 34 artguy10 2007-07-25 03:44:37 UTC
Actually, there might be a porblem. I got the SVGs from a banner for OpenOffice.org. I just noticed that these SVGs have a different seagull type; they are solid white with a black boarder instead of a 3D-like gradient with a shadow. Of course, I could take the SVGs I have to re-create the icons with the proper look, and I could recreate the oo2-main-app.icns also, but is there an SVG source for this already somewhere?

Comment 36 shaunmcdonald131 2007-07-25 09:52:57 UTC
artguy10: Have you signed a JCA?
Comment 37 artguy10 2007-07-25 18:16:36 UTC
No... I'm not sure what that is; I never came across it on this site. Is that some kind of Java architecture, or something about project planning?
Comment 38 artguy10 2007-07-25 18:28:28 UTC
Comment 39 shaunmcdonald131 2007-07-25 20:00:47 UTC
artguy10: The JCA is only used for the confirming of contributors to OpenOffice.org. Your name will appear at http://www.openoffice.org/copyright/copyrightapproved.html Other than for checking that you have signed the JCA, your details are not used based on the information provided on the form. This will allow you to submit code and make contributions to OpenOffice.org without a problem in the future.
Comment 40 artguy10 2007-07-26 00:24:36 UTC
Alright. So I just email the filled-out form to them, and I can contribute? I won't get phone calls and mail and stuff from them, will I?
Comment 41 shaunmcdonald131 2007-07-26 08:22:36 UTC
artguy10: that's correct
Comment 42 artguy10 2007-07-26 21:02:34 UTC
Alright, I filled-out and emailed the form. Now back to work. Where are the SVG source files for the existing icons? Should I simply modify existing icons? Should entirely new icons be made?
Comment 43 artguy10 2007-07-29 07:38:37 UTC
Can anyone confirm that the resized icons are acceptable? Could anyone give input about location of the SVG files of the current icons or whether logos modified in any way for the Mac version would be acceptable? Should I close the issue? What needs to be done for the icns files to be included in the next build for Mac?
Comment 44 artguy10 2007-08-05 19:31:01 UTC
I found some excellent icons for OpenOffice from Crystal Clear, which I think would fit in better with the Mac's Aqua/crystal theme. Perhaps we can get a written statement for these to be open source, or at least permission for use in the program?

Comment 46 artguy10 2007-08-15 18:18:05 UTC
Excuse me, but I have never before been assigned an issue, so I do not know how to update the actual program, or if that is left to someone else. I'm asking again: Are the resized icons that I put up OK? Is there a better SVG source for me to use? Should I modify the existing icons? Should I create a new icon set for the Mac version? Could the Crystal Clear icons (which are under a free license and you could probably get permission from the author also) be used, as they would best fit in with the Mac OS X theme? I need some feedback. Should I change the resolution of this issue to FIXED?
Comment 47 artguy10 2007-08-15 18:25:40 UTC
I'm uploading the OpenOffice.org icons from Crystal Clear, which I think are under the LGPL. I think they would be much more fitting for the Mac version of OpenOffice.org (even if I could resize the regular icons), and it is not unusual for a company to greatly modify their icons when it comes to Mac OS X...

Comment 57 shaunmcdonald131 2007-08-15 19:44:42 UTC
Don't mark it as fixed until it is commited to CVS, I can create the CWS to get it commited. I think that a JCA is required. To get a better response a mail to email@example.com would be best. Note many people are on holiday just now.
Comment 58 artguy10 2007-08-15 20:11:32 UTC
Okay, I emailed them. I'm sure you could get permission (in JCA format) from Everaldo Coelho (http://www.everaldo.com/contact/) to use these icons. I'll contact him about it... (I myself signed the JCA, so I could also make icons, btw.)
Comment 59 artguy10 2007-08-15 20:25:06 UTC
Actually, firstname.lastname@example.org is not a valid email address. How do I contact them? And I did email Everaldo. I hope we can use his icons.
