Bug Description

Binary package hint: human-icon-theme

The folder names shows uncentered under the folder icon, so the icon label shows too far at the right, looking rather ugly. Other icon sets does not have this issue (at least, not so evident).

I attach an screenshot to illustrate the problem, comparing Human icon theme with Tangerine and GNOME-Human themes.

Let's try to fix this, but replacing an icon as prominent as "folder" may be too large a task to be considered a paper cut.

I think this was a design decision in order to allow space for the overlays for filesystem types (for instance). Without including the space for the overlay the icon would not sit in a row with other similar icons and would appear to jump when the icon changes from one type to another. This is an issue of changing all the icons based on the folder not just the one icon.

Here's the svgs of the 6 folder types with the directory icon centered on the page, as it were. I've left the filetype labels positioned where they were and just shifted the folders over a bit.

I'll be the first to say that I don't know anything about building icon sets, so I'm not entirely sure what to do with these at this point. Perhaps they need also be exported to bitmaps for the smaller resolutions? With a bit of instruction/direction, I could probably get that done, too.

Also, are there other icons besides these 6 that are problematic? Open directories, or other such icons?

And where all, within the icon set, are these icons repeated (but not as links)?
