Icon herding gets easier with Tango Generator

When you want to customize the look and feel of your Linux desktop environment, you can find many resources for altering window managers and interface widgets, but working with icons has always been more of an issue. Now you can get help with icons from a new program called Tango Generator.

The major Linux desktop environments (such as GNOME, KDE, and Xfce) adhere to an icon theme specification from freedesktop.org. That is excellent from a standardization point of view, but the specification gave individuals who wanted to create their own themes no alternative but to create the directories full of PNG and SVG files manually, and write theme configuration files by hand.
