splash screens – fedora looking!

Posted: June 27, 2010 in fedora

In European Portuguese, the language spoken in Portugal and all Portuguese speaking countries except Brazil, ‘aborrecido’ stands for ‘bored’. This is the very basic line of a new concept I’m looking into…

Being bored… and trying to get a more ‘fedorish’ look into my usual stuff, I’ve decided to rework some of the artwork from bundled with Fedora Linux.

As usual the files are available on my space for download, including the source in .XCF.

I’m currently running Fedora x86_64 Goddard, so the install information for people on 64bit is pretty simple: just uncompress the folders into /usr/lib64/openoffice.org3/program. I am assuming that for 32 bit it should be into /usr/lib/openoffice.org3/program.

This is pretty much useless, but it’s just something more to share.

    the “” part is not very readable, written in blue over a blue background… try something to make it stand-out better, for example add a drop-shadow or a light hallo around the logo.

      ganham-se uma, perdem-se outras… devemos baixar os braços? ;)

      Agora vamos é preparar a festa lusa para amanha, na pior das hipoteses, será festa Ibérica ;)

    That’s an idea. I have to admit that my skills with The Gimp are pretty limited and in many ways I don’t have also the sensibility to this kinds of things. I’ll try to explore Gimp a bit more and understand some of it’s capabilities. There’s nothing much artistic actually.

    Thanks for your input, I’ll see if I can improve and fix those topics.
