Le Tango PS3 theme

The nice people at have updated their copy of the Tango theme to link to this blog, and credit me properly (thanks Jason).

I'm not too fussed about being credited as it's mostly work by the Tango artists (special mention to Jakub and Ulisse for the Sony hardware related icons) appearing (took me 2 evenings to do, still), but rather the fact that people don't get the whole story going to a resource website like that one.

No updates, no copyright information, no links to sources.

FYI, the source code is:
  • Under the GPL for icons copied from gnome-icon-theme-extras and gnome-icon-theme, as well as the background derived from gnome-backgrounds
  • Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License for the icons copied from tango-icon-theme and tango-icon-theme-extras
  • Composite icons are under the most restrictive license of the icons used as sources
  • The left-over icons are under whichever license Sony released their sample theme (unused in the final theme)
Feel free to ask for more information about specific icons. I'll also make sure to include this information in future releases (ie. when I know how to replace the missing icons).

I will try it today! :)

Do u know how to download any theme directly from the ps3 using the ps3 browser?...

Hey I don't know if it will help to fill out the icons that you still need but I did a PS3 Tango icon a while back, maybe it would be useful for one of the preferences icons:

You can use it under whatever license is easiest for you.

AnTiLo0p, it's the only question in the help section of the website. You didn't even try to search, did you?

Máirín, funnily enough, I saw your icon in the icon themes, and looked forward to using it, but it didn't seem to match the metaphor for any of the categories... Did you have a particular icon in mind?

Isn't there some kind of network-thingy on the ps3 or something, you know, my neightbourhood?
Máirín's icon would have fitted great there.
