A library for looking up icons on Linux and other FreeDesktop compliant systems. This library implements the FreeDesktop Icon Theme specification.

#Other Parts of this Project

  • geticons A cli utility to get icons on *nix system. Based on this library.
  • Freedesktop Entry Parser A library for parsing Freedesktop entires files, used by this library. .desktop files and theme index files use this format.

#Build and Testing

The tests for this library depend on the Faenza icon pack being installed. To test icon looks I need an icon library installed and Faenza is pretty small and available on a lot of distros.
