Note
(to be made shorter) Please remember, that long lists are a problem for translators. With single level bulleted lists, place each bullet in a section of its own, i.e. make a blank line between bullets. With two levels of bullets the subitems must be kept in the same section as their top level bullet; if you have to use subbullets, please keep the sublists short! With enumerations involved, you must keep everything in one unit. Please try to avoid enumerations, and if you find that you must use them try to keep them short.

Icons

You type You get
Click on {{Icon|plasma}} to open the desktop Tool Box.
Click on Icon-plasma.png to open the desktop Tool Box.

The best way to refer to icons in the GUI is to display the icon in the text. The argument (in the example above plasma) is the same as the icon name that icon themes use.

If the icon does not exist, it has to be uploaded to the wiki:

  • The icons can often be found locally in the directory usr/share/icons/oxygen/
  • Find the icon image file, preferably in 16x16 px
  • Copy the image file to your home directory and add Icon- in front of the filename. The rest of the filename should remain the same, so for example plasma.png would be Icon-plasma.png
  • Upload the icon to UserBase. See Update an Image for more information about how to upload images
