[Wishlist] Include an icon for OggConvert

Bug #117849 reported by iKs
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released

Bug Description

OggConvert has currently no icon, neither in the menu nr when running.

We need a nice icon to distinguish the software and to make it look sexier.
If someone wants to make something..

This is something I've been wanting for a while, but unfortunately I've got absolutely no artistic talent myself.

Ideally I'd want something really cool and Tango-ish. I really like the icon for SoundConverter[1], but I'd like something that conveys the fact that OggConvert works with video as well as just audio.

So to all the budding artists out there, please see what you can come up with!

The SoundConverter icon indeed looks great :)
Something Tango-ish would be great (Tango rox :D), I'll see if any of my friends wantd to do something (I have no artistic talent myself neither ^^)

I think this is an important thing to have before Gutsy gets out, so I've taken the time, read 15 mins, to post a simple one.
Hope you take this one as a temporary until the time you get a real one.
It's from the Tango project with Share Alike license (See metadata for full info), based on the "Save" icon.

No conveyance of it supporting both audio and video though... if you can add emblems for both video and audio behind the Ogg word then I think it would look better... make it look like audio and video TO ogg.

Thank you very much. I like it! :)

My only reservation though is the use of the word "Ogg" in the icon. When OggConvert gets translation support (which will happen Real Soon Now, honest), it may be translated into languages where "Ogg" becomes something completely different. I believe the Gnome/Tango recommendations are to avoid using letters/words in icons for precisely this reason.

Nevertheless, I *do* like it, and it's certainly better than having no icon at all! So I'll include it in the next release tarball, and leave it to the discretion of packagers as to whether or not they want to include it.

Okay, I've decided to include this icon as the "official" one. Nevertheless if someone wants to have a go at one which doesn't use any latin letters (as I'm still not sure this is a good idea), I'd be happy to have a look at it.
