Nonnative apps may not use theme icons for the task manager or tray, some apps have nonstandard desktop files, and some others have built-in icons. Nothing can be done for such apps in the theme.

Have used this icon set for past few years as it sits nicely with most of the black / bluish themes I use. Will say your icon set is probably the best ive used / seen etc and always seems to play nicely on my desktop.
You seem to have covered most of the icons for most of the common software, which is sadly lacking in most other icon 'packs'
Your sir, remains supreme.
Keep up the good work and thanks for all the hard work developing these.
I'd like to kindly ask you to look at several apps. If you have some time to create icons for them I'd be exceedingly grateful.
These apps are:
deadbeef (foobar2000 clone),
double commander (total commander clone),
atom (text editor),
sublime text (another text editor),
xnviewmp (image viewer)
also, I'd like to mention retroarch game emulator and jetbrains IDEs (intellij idea, clion, pycharm, rider etc)
Live long and prosper! Cheers.

Did I say thank you already, and just regged to this site to say this!

I'd be grateful if you give me their names. However, please be patient: most of my free time is dedicated to Kvantum and LXQT.

I understand but nouveKDEGray is supposed to be a monochrome set (with some exceptions). It also has colored folder icons (yellow included), which you could use to distinguish special folders.
I'm glad you like the theme.
For an icon set, the "source" is usually the set itself. I made these icons by using various methods with Inkscape and Krita. Most of them are SVG-based but, most of the time, I didn't just exported PNG from SVG. The SVG files are a such mess that I prefer to focus on creating icons with high quality rather that doing the boring task of organizing their SVG origins.
That said, a simple Makefile and a debian folder could be created to package the whole set into a deb package, and a similar thing could be done for rpm too. That's rather a distro job though.
Yes, they're *mostly* SVG-based but (1) they aren't made just by exporting SVG to PNG, and (2) the SVG icons are a real mess and I have no time (or motivation) to make them tidy.
Also my reply to 9rief's comment may be relevant here.
However, thanks for your comment!
SVG could be optimized with automatic tools like github.com/RazrFalcon/SVGClean…, I would do that if I'd had SVGs. If you just don't want to share them - that's ok - just say
Regarding missing icons - I can prepare the list but it would be pretty huge, starting with retroarch, dosbox, obs, xnview, doublecmd, sublime...
nouveKDEGray isn't supposed to cover the whole Linux It's rather for Qt apps, although it covers many non-Qt apps that are OFTEN used in KDE and LXQT (like Firefox). Its counterpart, nouveGnomeGray, is mainly for GTK+ but, as I've distanced myself from GTK+, I have no plan to add icons to it. Anyway, neither is my priority now. I'll just try to keep them usable within reasonable limits.
