  • tried to change the shape into something more modern (though I quite like the old-ish look)
  • changed the gradient as bruns said, can't say I see much difference
  • removed the middle curve

Changed the icon, with ndavis' help, so that it better fits its 64px place.

If on the other hand you really like the old mouse icon as well but just want it to work better for dark themes then another option might be to recolour the old icon to get better contrast out of it against the dark background.

Added a better border, it does look better like this.

Maybe this is just me but the overall width to height ratio makes it seem that the closest "real" mice are quite dated as well.

Awesome, that's much nicer.

I think it needs the outline.border to extend up to the top, or else the top of the icon starts to blend in with the default window color:

  • Fixed margins
  • added *some* perspective, I hope it looks better. I don't know if maybe I should add curvature
  • used inkscape to optimize it
  • I really have no idea on how to make it less boring

Regarding SVG optimization, the main point of it these days is to make the code easier to read, not to get the smallest size possible. Use the settings on this page for your SVG optimizer: https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Icon_Workflow_Tips

Running svgcleaner on this icon turns it from a 7.3 KiB monstrosity to 1.6 KiB beauty. However I don't know how to update this patch :(.
