From Tango Desktop Project

Some icons that have been created in tango style, yet don't make sense to ship with the base theme.


Work in Progress

This document is a work in progress. The tables are not sorted in any way and you are welcome to add more icons to the list that didn't make it into the base set, yet are widely used on today's desktops.


The major structure of the set is divided into:

  • Actions


Icon name Description
document-save-as Save the document as a new document with different name
document-save-all Useful for MDI and TBI applications. Used for saving all open documents.


Icon name Description
lock An icon depicting a lock has been used in many contexts. Usually for 'secure' connections. We believe a shield is a better metaphor.
