+1 to making the menus the same.

Re-add applications-internet symlink to preferences/32
Wed, Dec 12
I did notice that symlinks for applications-internet exist in apps/16 and apps/22, so maybe there needs to be a scalable version in the same category? There was no apps/48/applications-internet, but there was a preferences/32/applications-internet. I removed that because it seemed redundant and out of place. Are applications able to specify which Context an icon they want to use comes from?

In blind listening tests, a common practice is to play 2 files and ask which version the listener preferred. I think that approach could work for this if we only presented 2 options at a time. It would need to go through multiple rounds to get through all of the combinations though, so it would have to be a configuration wizard. Not really an easy mode in the sense that it isn't quick, but it could be useful for helping the user find what they like the most.
I made a more detailed version, but I'm not sure if it's going overboard.
Change applications-internet back into a duplicate of preferences-system-network

Does it have to be in the Plasma theme? I want to move all icons into breeze-icons eventually.
Here's a rough draft of something similar to the Logitech F 710, but with colors that are more similar to the original DualShock controller and white Xbox 360 controller:
In general, color icons are the same in Breeze and Breeze Dark while monochrome icons change their primary color. I think the light and dark versions of this icons should be the same.
Add drive-multidisk-symbolic and drive-multipartition-symbolic
Remove stray point from 64px drive-multipartition
Update dark theme
Change monochrome drive-multipartition style and add color version

Makes sense to me. Time moves clockwise on a clock.
Looks right. I might prefer a wider hat brim or a mask like @filipf suggested, but I'm not going to make that a requirement since it seems more like a matter of taste.
I noticed that the 24px version is now aligned to the grid, but the margins aren't right. The 16 and 22px versions are still not aligned to the grid.
I would like if it was more aligned with the grid:
I think we should be using a monochrome icon here. An equivalent monochrome icon would be favorite, but I don't think "favorite" is a good symbol for "alternatives". Maybe preferences-other/application-menu (same icon) would be good? It might be outside the scope of this patch anyway since this means the alternatives icon needs to be changed outside the edit mode as well.

Why are we using a color icon at such a small size? Wouldn't it make more sense to make a monochrome icon at that size?

Here's what I've got right now. I thought the A# and V# labels were redundant, so I removed them.

What if instead of using 'a' as a variable in the equation, we used 'k'?

The original design was more consistent with the usual style for text characters used in Breeze icons, but I think using actual LaTeX fonts in this context works just as well or better for LaTeX users.

I've checked it out and it looks good!
Looks like you've addressed all of my concerns, so I'll accept this. @ngraham ?
Is the home button in go.svgz meant to be partially transparent?

With colorschemes applied, these will be your colors:
I just ran into 2 other issues.
It appears that the background colors are hardcoded. If they are meant to be dark with the Breeze Light Plasma theme and light with Breeze Dark, then they should use the ColorScheme-Text class and the inner symbols should use the ColorScheme-Background class.
Could these icons be moved into the breeze-icons repo? That would make it simpler to edit and review these in the future.
I noticed you used green as the color for "Target". What is a "Target"? Is that the current selection? If so, the color should be Plasma Blue (#3daee9). Green should generally be used for positive things or successful operations while Plasma Blue is used for selections.

I think the locked track stuff should be orange. Red should generally be reserved for things that can be destructive or errors.
Also, here's the 16px muted icon with the "No" symbol moved out to the right by 1px and then 2px compared to the 16px full volume icon
Also, the semi-transparent sound waves on the audio icons in the Breeze Plasma theme use 25% opacity, not 50% opacity. I think 25% looks better anyway.
I'm not sure about this, but I think increasing the size of the red no symbol from 6px to 8px on the 22px mute icon might be a good idea. At 6px, it just seems to lack visual weight.
Could a distinction between "off" and "muted" be useful? If that is true, then we should keep the red horizontal dash for muted and use a red slash through the whole icon for off/disabled. In general, I think a red X should mean "error", but we're not consistent about that yet. I also think the sound waves should be reversed on the microphone icon since microphones don't normally make noise.

Why not abbreviate the number and round the abbreviated number instead? Instead of using "9,999+" for 11000, use "11K".

That blur looks nice, but I think the background should be more opaque like the Elisa header background.
If you want to try adding blur to the background, check out the code here: https://cgit.kde.org/elisa.git/tree/src/qml/HeaderBar.qml#n53
Actually, I do need you to do something, but the icons themselves are fine. I need to to rebase this patch onto master. I can walk you through it here or in a chat room if you need help.
