Hi Matthias,Thanks for your reply.If you look at gnome-looks icons, there are lot of icon
themes based on a preferred geometry (like circular, rounded-square etc. I personally use
any themed icons-sets, those
icons only work with prebuilt icons (those provided by the upstream). If I use a software
that is not themed by the upstream, it looks out of place. I have added my screen-shot for
an example, with nedit not themed (see
)In android system,
it is very common that if icons are unthemed, then it will get a layer (masking) ...so all
icons have same shape.
