Arch Linux wallpaper pack #1

I've put together a pack of wallpapers with the new logo, using the excellent wallpaper designs from Venom339.  The pack sports 15 different designs (preview), all 1680x1050 widescreen.  We may add this to an official section eventually, but in the meantime you can grab it here:

These are all released under a Creative Commons license (Attribution-Noncommercial-ShareAlike).  If you like the colourful patterns, be sure to check out Venom's gallery because these are just the tip of the iceberg.

but what about 1920x1200 ?
once they are bigger then it is easier to make them small then oposite :-(

Re: Arch Linux wallpaper pack #1

Great job as always, thayer.

A question: are we gonna get also GDM - KDM artwork in the future ? Sometime ago I downloaded a simple gdm theme with the new logo but I can't find it anymore on your site.

Re: Arch Linux wallpaper pack #1

Thanks for the comments, everyone but the credit really goes to Venom339.  His wallpaper designs were top notch long before I added the Arch logo smile

My goal was just to get the ball rolling for the community. The original (logoless) versions of these wallpapers are at Venom's deviant site, and he's made them available in all sizes.  Feel free to grab your favourite patterns and have at it!

I still have some stuff that I haven't had a chance to get to...they might appear in the near future. Similar to what I said above though, the logo SVG's are available here, so everyone has the opportunity to make whatever they fancy.

Thanks again everyone and if you really like the wallpapers, be sure to leave a comment for Venom339.  I'm sure he'd appreciate it!

Edit: stupid typos!

Re: Arch Linux wallpaper pack #1

The wallpapers are now also online in an album,
so that you don't have to download the entire package or an other reason wink.

my.opera.com/filenox/albums
and chose Arch Linux.

The wallpapers are uploaded for 1280x1024.
If somebody wants them on a higher resolution; just ask.
