Arch ASCII logo

I've been running an Arch Linux server for a long time, and I got bored of the dull login one day so I made a logo to spice it up a bit.

AROBaOG.png

Yes that is Windows, and yes, that is what it has been optimized for. More specifically, this ASCII art looks best when viewed with Courier New. It's not a free font and you may have to modify a few characters to make it look good with your favorite font. There are two versions, one with a blank logo as shown above, and one with a filled logo which I'm not too terribly happy with. The filled one might look better on a white background.

Blank version

\e[H\e[2J
          \e[0;36m.
         \e[0;36m/ \
        \e[0;36m/   \      \e[1;37m               #     \e[1;36m| *
       \e[0;36m/^.   \     \e[1;37m a##e #%" a#"e 6##%  \e[1;36m| | |-^-. |   | \ /
      \e[0;36m/  .-.  \    \e[1;37m.oOo# #   #    #  #  \e[1;36m| | |   | |   |  X
     \e[0;36m/  (   ) _\   \e[1;37m%OoO# #   %#e" #  #  \e[1;36m| | |   | ^._.| / \ \e[0;37mTM
    \e[1;36m/ _.~   ~._^\
   \e[1;36m/.^         ^.\ \e[0;37mTM

Filled version

\e[H\e[2J
          \e[1;36m.
         \e[1;36m/#\
        \e[1;36m/###\      \e[1;37m               #     \e[1;36m| *
       \e[1;36m/p^###\     \e[1;37m a##e #%" a#"e 6##%  \e[1;36m| | |-^-. |   | \ /
      \e[1;36m/##P^q##\    \e[1;37m.oOo# #   #    #  #  \e[1;36m| | |   | |   |  X
     \e[1;36m/##(   )##\   \e[1;37m%OoO# #   %#e" #  #  \e[1;36m| | |   | ^._.| / \ \e[0;37mTM
    \e[1;36m/###P   q#,^\
   \e[1;36m/P^         ^q\ \e[0;37mTM

Replace the occurances of \e with the ASCII ESC character, using something like echo -e, to get it printed properly in the terminal with colors. The "\e[H\e[2J" code clears the screen.

License
This is an ASCII adoptation of the logo provided at https://www.archlinux.org/art/. I have no clue about how the copyright/trademark soup of this thing works, so from me you can use the ASCII art adoptation for any purpose provided you don't try to take credit for it. The trademark and copyright of the original logo may pose additional requirements.

Re: Arch ASCII logo

There are so many Arch ASCII logos scattered out there, so I think I could hijack your thread to try to glue all those versions (including yours, of course) together on a ArchWiki page. What do you think? We could even create an AUR package with all the ASCIIs. Then one could use it with a simple 'cat /usr/share/<....>/ascii1.txt'

Before I invest some time on it, does a place or a package like this already exist?

Programs with Arch Logos:: archey, alsi, screenfetch.

Re: Arch ASCII logo

@thiagowfx: I did search a bit for ASCII logos a year ago. I didn't find any I liked, wich is why I made my own. Most of the ones I found were from a thread started 6 years ago.

@ids1024: Hehe, I figured it wouldn't be popular around here. But I make up for it by having more uptime on my Arch Linux server than all my Windows computers combined.

Re: Arch ASCII logo

@Sivert3 Nice, I'll put them all together in this freshly created page:
