Arch Linux Carbon Wallpaper

Hi everyone,

just wanted to share this wallpaper I made with GIMP, following a tutorial I found on abduzeedo.com (or http://abduzeedo.com/rawz-light-effects-photoshop, to be more specific), a blog for graphics design. The tutorial was originally intended for Photoshop and with me being not at all experienced with GIMP (or Photoshop, for that matter), the result turned out to be a lot more simplistic than it was meant to be at first. But then again, I guess that suits an Arch Linux Wallpaper better anyway.
The Arch Linux logo is taken from http://www.archlinux.org/art/.
I opened a new thread for this as I couldn't seem to find a thread dedicated to wallpapers.
Anyway, enjoy!

wow thats beatiful man!
what if you adapt it as a background for slim or other login manager and add it to aur? or if you want (and you allow me) I can do it. of course, I would give you full credits on the AUR. so what you say?


"open source is about choice"
No.
Open source is about opening the source code complying with this conditions, period. The ability to choose among several packages is just a nice side effect.

Sure, go ahead and do whatever you want with it! I'd even add it as a theme myself, I don't know how to add stuff to the AUR though and right now I'm a little too busy to get involved in that. A GDM theme would be awesome as well (mainly because that's what I use) but I think I'll give that a shot myself later. I've always (always as in "for about a year") wanted to do a theme for GDM anyway - the wallpaper would have to be changed a little for that though (put the logo off-centre).
If you need to apply changes to the image, tell me and I'll upload it in GIMP's editable format!
