have checked there...

but couldn't find what i am lookin for ...

KDE's icons are in the directories under KDEPREIX/share/icons

The current theme selects the subdirectory, for example crystalsvg

Icons are usually in PNG format.

Which icon is sued for which purpose is decided by the name, that is the icon loader looks for an icon with a specific name, if it can't find it in the current theme, it will try to find it in the default theme, called "hicolor"

now how does icon loader look for an icon with specific name is what i want to know...

there must be some file which hold info about linking of these specified names of icons and what purpose it is used which is it ?

or the prog src which does this ...

also if U can tell how to get the resolution to 128x128 pixel in explorer it will help ...

i suppose by default it supports 64x64...

Is there any way to make icon themes apart from name the icons with specific name....
with this method
now i have to rename icons for each resolution..

also is there a prog like (axilas icon workshop) which convert macx file to png in linux...

any help would be appreciated..
