Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

I don't know if it is just because it is new and nifty looking, but I think that looks better than your  previous arch gnome splash screens.  You ought to see if you can get Judd or someone to put your Gnome 2.4 splash screen in the graphics section of the website, btw, your old links to the previous splash screens are dead in this post: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=1332 .

Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

Looks nice. Would it be possible to make one splash screen for KDE (kdm). I would like to add it in AL-AMLUG Live CD.

Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

personally, I don't like it much, I beg your pardon, but hey, you asked for it ... smile

It is a good work for a beginner. If this is your first or third grafic, it's super. But, to be used as a 'business card' for arch, it has a kind of newbeeish finish, for my taste.

From desingers point of view, it is always a sin to use different fonts and font shemes (inverted, fat) in a grafic or document. If anyone could translate my words, 'Laufweite', 'Schriftschnitt', 'Kern' are the things you should have a look for. There seems to be no reason for that rock backround, more than that, it looks somehow old fashioned, doesn't it. When grafic apps learned to do backgrounds with tiles, this was used a lot. Let's say, 10 years earlier it would have been great. Nowadays, it is simply an error in taste to seriously use such a background, I am sorry ...
I think there is no need to shout out the desktop environments name and version number while starting it. Kde and gnome splash could look the same. The splash is for proud arch users, in first place. Which desktop env they run is secondary.

I would prefer it to be smooth and clear, smart and hip and a proof of tasty understatement.

Simply use archlinux' name and logo, maybe have the logo and / or name look somehow chrystalized. The font could have the look of smoky, grey glass. Or the gloss of black one. That would do for my taste. The background could be pale blue, with a white border line towards the buttom where the boot logos will appear...

Maybe I will try one for my own, now that I talked that big. I will have to learn gimp, first, or bring e-picture back on top of my desktop, in beos or windows ...

Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

I dont use bloatware like gnome and kde


Off to using Peanut and Slackware, no hard feelings but I need my CD to burn, PDA and scanner to connect and arch won't do it.

so what do u use? i would be interested to know. i'm primarily sticking to kde for "easy" and "already setup" reasons, and i havent actually had the time to go search out and try out "lightware", but... i really hope to be moving in the direction of "lightware" some time in the future.

Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

I'm not a graphics designer by any means but I think it looks pretty professional, I like it.

And a good "lightware" GUI to try is fluxbox, its pretty easy to get the hang of

Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

What about IceWM? Thats the one that I'm using.
Thing is that the config is to be done through config-files, fortunately there are progs that do this sort of stuff roll .
Oh, and it does'nt come with a file-manager :? , you have to get something like rox or xfe or something.

i think that's what a light wm is not supposed to do - that would be more of like an "environment".

Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

Oh, I see.
Anyway, with arch, getting a file-manager is'nt difficult at all: xfe is in '/incoming' at the moment, so no worries.  tongue

I like this splash screen. Any chance we could get a 2.6 or a versionless version of it?

Icons are from the currently set icon theme, if a program doesnt have an icon in the theme, it is then looked for in /usr/share/pixmaps/

As for the splash, it's okay
However I agree with PinkChick's criticisms.

Re: Gnome ArchLinux Splash Screen [UPDATED]

I think it's great. And really can't see why it has to be that professional as some of you are talking about. I think it fits well in with archlinux, don't ask my why, i just do.
