This is a simple script that will take icons from the Tango project and create an icon strip out of it. The idea is to be able to easily create an basic icon set for a new resolution. I've used this to create a 24x24 icon set for Android which already looks way better than the stock 12x12 one even without further adjustments. For good quality manual work is required since downscaling the svg icons and reducing the alpha channel to 1 bit leaves artifacts.

To use it put the script in the icons/ folder of Rockbox svn, extract the Tango iconset to some location while keeping its folder structure intact. Then run it with the path to the Tango icons and requested icon size as arguments.

I wasn't able to match all icons used in the current Tango icons to the ones of the Tango distribution. I welcome suggestions or corrections in the icon mappings.

Requires Perl, ImageMagick and Inkscape.
This task depends upon
