I'm looking for some simple shape icons, namely for drawing circles, rectangles, polygons and lines. 16x16. Anyone know where I can find them? I've found tons of icon sets, but these are always left out. My GIMP skills suck :(

I don't know where to find these, but if you end up needing to create them from scratch, I'd suggest a vector editor like Adobe Illustrator or maybe Inkscape rather than GIMP. –  Nathan Long Aug 17 '09 at 18:10

Nevermind. http://www.iconfinder.net/ helped me get what I need.

Try Inkscape which is directly available for Ubuntu and should feature all the icons you want.

There's freedesktop.org's icon naming specification and two well known icon sets that use it are Tango and Oxygen. They are very likely to have what you need. They also have clear licensing terms and legal paperwork, which cannot be said about most of iconfinder.net icons.

For Windows, try drawing them with paint.NET. I know you'd rather find some ready to use, but unlike GIMP (which is oriented towards manipulating existing photo images), paint.NET is actually easy to use for drawing simple shapes.

Reason I mentioned GIMP because I'm on Ubuntu and I'm too lazy to boot back into windows so I can use PS :p –  Mark Aug 17 '09 at 18:25

A very big legal set is downloadable as a torrent, more than 13.000 icons from 17 icon-sets.
