FrOSCon 2013 is coming

Mai 14th, 2013 von buergermeister

FrOSCon has called for talks and projects a while ago. Fedora has requested a booth already but there is still some time left (9 days) for submit talks and workshops. Last year we had also an DevRoom we shared with Mageia, openSUSE and Centos where we did a schedule with talks about RPM packaging. The question is now, do we want a DevRoom again and what we can do with it. Any suggestions are welcome.

Conclusion Linuxwochen Vienna

Mai 6th, 2013 von buergermeister

Linuxwochen 2013 in Vienna are over now, it was 3 days with a lot of talks. The program had 100 different talks and workshops and most of them was really filled up. As the Linuxwochen was this year in the new building of UAS Vienna, there was plenty of space for the exhibition, but not a lot of booths. Hopefully there will be more next year otherwise the exhibition is not interesting. Otherwise we had a lot of conversations and the 3D printer rocked again.
Personally I had 3 talks and 3 workshops, my talks was scheduled all for the first day. The talk about doing animations with Linux and Open Source was well visited and also the following talk about how to do slides with Inkscape. Interesting for me I doing this talk since over 3 years and its still new to the people, that it can be done. Last talk at that day was the introducion of the Fedora Design Suite and as it was the last talk on the day, there was not so lot of people as in my other talks.
On friday I had the first workshop at 2pm and it was good visited, there was 22 people and that is the optimal amount of people. For this workshop I had to switch to english as there was guests from aborad. If there is more interest in Brno, we can also do one of my Inkscape weekends there. The other two workshops I had on saturday beginning in the morning with the Blender one after a short lunch break the second Inkscape workshop followed. Also here they was filled up.
The system for the schedule the Linuxwochen use allows the visitors to vote for the talks and the speaker can see them, so I looked yesterday if I have comments on my talks and workshop and I already had for most of them good votes and comments. One comment said it’s already time that somebody starts to talk about how to do animations with Linux and Open Source. Actually I think about doing an workshop for that but the problem is, it’s for users and as Tupi isnt packaged for Fedora or openSUSE yet, it’s not possible. For Debian and Ubuntu there are packages but they are outdated. So we will see if in the future also workshops for animations can be done. So on the end Linuxwochen was a good event for me and I think I will be there 2014 again.

The Winners! – Fedora 19 Supplemental Wallpaper

April 20th, 2013 von buergermeister

A few hours ago the voting for the Supplemental Wallpapers for Fedora 19 ended. This time we had not so much submissions like for Fedora 18 but still enough to make it hard to vote. So it’s time to present the results. If you are interested in the totally results, you will find them here.

I am happy, that we also got this time submissions from people they are not amongst the Fedora contributors yet. But also the submissions from our contributors was damn good. So I looking forward for the Supplemental Wallpaper Contest for Fedora 20.

But for doing it, I need some help. During this contest a lot of problems became visible, the wiki isnt a good place to do it and also our voting application isnt written to handle so much candidates. It looks we need a new application for it, in case you are interested writing such one – join the design channel and speak to me.

LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013 day 3

April 15th, 2013 von buergermeister

Saturday was the last the of LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013 in Madrid, the day started for me with an talk who was done via internet – The GIMP Magazin. I attended also Tav’s talk about the future things in Inkscape as there is really movenment changing the internal render engine. I had spoken with Tav at the party on the evening before about some things. Next talk for me was Jimmac’s talk how he misused Blender for doing the the introduction videos for GNOME. His talk ended like always ;)

After the last talk the “closing session” followed and there are a lot of changes in organizing LibreGraphicsMeeting in the future, we discussed some things. What I found very interesting is that Ale Rimoldi played the protector of the poor people, he said we should recignize that some cant afford to buy the ticket before and get later reimbursed. Find that very interesting as I went last year to him asking if that can be done for Gustav Gonzalez he was strict against it. Everything else I had as point was said from other people. So there will be some good changes in the future. We had later an organizing meeting for people who interested to help organizing LGM and it ended with nice ideas. As possible places for next year are Montreal/Canada, Medellin/Colombia, Buenes Aires/Argentina and Leipzig/Germany as possible hosts for next LGM version. And there will be a competition, means who makes the best proposals and presents the best solutions will get it. That session took a long time, but I am sure the changes are a big step forward in the right direction.

After that we went to an short bring your own food party and it was very nice, because a lot of nice discussions went on there. As Chris Murphy attended the LGM and also Pippin from GIMP we had a lot of time to speak about where to do the next Color Management Hackfest and we think Norway would be an good option as we could use the color lab, with the tools we need for driving CM on Linux forward. After Norway we think its the best option to make the CM Hackfest combined with LGM as there are lot of color people around and also applications that could be interested and need help. So on the end it was a nice week, with nice people a lot of new informations and nice results. Thx to all sponors to help to make that meeting happen and also thx to Fedora for sponsoring me.

LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013 day 2

April 14th, 2013 von buergermeister

The post for this day took me a while to write because on the third day there was the party and thanks to GIMP we had a lot of free beer there. But before the party was we had another day with talks, workshops and hackfests/disciussions to make. I had my second talk about open source movies after my talk Nina Paley had her talk asking where a useful free animation tool is.

The rest of the day I worked together with Boudewijn Rempt and Gustav Gonzalez on ideas how Tupi and Krita can be work together. We found some bugs in the Tupi code, which will be fixed soon and that will make import more faster. We also worked together with Jon Nordby from Mypaint on ideas to have a common format for brushes so Krita, MyPaint, GIMP, Tupi and Synfig could work with the same brushes.

LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013 day 1

April 12th, 2013 von buergermeister

Today was the second day of LibreGraphicsMeeting in Madrid. I did not attend a lot of talks as I used the time, to speak with some people. Gustav Gonzalez and me had also the time to speak with Nina Paley an present Tupi to her. She likes the simplicity of the GUI but find it to embryonic in the features. Yesterday she tried to use Synfig and think the learning curve is to high for using it. But Inkscape at least she likes, she wishes it would support animations, so I told her from the plans Andy Fitz had once.

Rest of the day I attended the Krita workshop from Animtim, he showed Kritas newest thing called Krita Sketch, actually I like the simple GUI more then Krita as desktop version. But I met also other people, I had short time to talk with Robert Martinez, who works together with me on OCAL, mabye we put in in the lightning talks a short about the next version of OCAL showing how it will look like.

LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013 day 0

April 11th, 2013 von buergermeister

First day of LGM is done, it started late and it ended late. I attended the Synfig Animation workshop which get an break because of an fire alert. After the workshop the talks started but not as scheduled. I had the third talk and was half an hour to late, so I went through my talk very fast and skipped also the questions. But I think it was a good talk about the Fedora Design Suite. Personally I was interested in Tavmong Bahs talk about the future of SVG -SVG 2.0 But he prepared a lot of slides and most of them explained what SVG is and he runt out of time as the talks on LGM are only 20 minutes.

The rest of the day was a lot meeting old friends and new people, but a little bit stressful for me as I had to manage to close the supplemental wallpaper process and attend the EMEA Ambassadors meeting, but I managed that until my battery run off power. So its already late now and I am tired. But tomorrow will be a new day full of talk, in case you are interested they will be streamed: http://streaming.medialab-prado.es/

Video Chemnitzer Linux-Tage

April 5th, 2013 von buergermeister

Its some time since the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage are over, most of Fedora booth personal have already blogged about. I also made a post.

So the guys from “Gnu funzt” wanted an interview with Miro about Fedora and 3D printing and now its published and here it is.

The Fedora part starts at 05.30 and its in English, the rest of the video is in German.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2013

März 18th, 2013 von buergermeister

Last weekend 15th edition of Chemnitzer Linux-Tage happend. Of course I was there as it is an event in my home town and I had as always an workshop about Inkscape there and an talk, this year about Tupi the animation software. My workshop was with 25 people filled, not so much as in the last years but still a good result. My talks was also good visited, but I was not so happy, as my prepared files made me some trouble.

The booth was well visited, the 3D printer Miro brought was a highlight and a lot of people was interested. So it was definitely a good idea to present that feature of Fedora 19. The little Fedora chips we printed was popular.

Schroedingers Cat will be beautiful

März 15th, 2013 von buergermeister

A few weeks ago, we started the submission phase for the Supplemental Wallpapers for Fedora 19Schrödingers Cat“, normally there would be the half of the submission phase. So time to make a status report, but the good news is we can expand the deadline for submissions to 10th of April.

We’ve definitely got some awesome contributions and this are my personal favorites right now.

But that is just me, remember this time all Fedora contributors can vote. For participating with wallpapers simple submit them to the wiki (if you have problems with it, contact me gnokii@fpo). But watch for the regulations and licenses. One thing is definitely for sure, Fedora 19 will look awesome & beautiful. We’ll have an awesome default wallpaper, a reworked boot process, and a guaranteed nice set of supplemental wallpapers.

LibreGraphicsMeeting Madrid

März 14th, 2013 von buergermeister

As the schedule for talks and workshops of this years edition of LibreGraphicsMeeting is now published, its time to talk about. For those who dont know LibreGraphicsMeeting is the annual meeting of most of the graphic tools of the free software world. This year LGM will take place in Madrid from 10th to 13th of April and is combined with Interactivos?’13 of LibreGraphicsResearchUnit which will start on 13th and end on 27th of April.

Personally I will give a talk about Fedora Design Suite and a second one about Open Source Movies. In general there is a lot this year about animation software Synfig Studio workshop and also Tupi is there, interesting is also the talk of Nina Paley, because she is a well known animator. But I am not the only Fedorian who has a talk there, Maria “Tatica” Leandro has an Localization workshop as she works on the translation of Darktables User Manual since a few weeks. Only sad thing here is she had to borrow money to buy the flight ticket, as we had not enough on the pledgie, so we still need some support. Richard Hughes will tell the truth about display color calibration. Jakub Steiner will talk about localized animations with blender,python and mallard. So it will be definitly an interesting conference. Btw. the LibreGraphicsMeeting has also a pledgie collecting money for the conference.

LGM travel campaign update

Februar 21st, 2013 von buergermeister

It’s time to report about the LibreGraphicsMeeting travel campaign for Gustav, Onyeibo and Tatica. Thanks to some big donations we have 50% of the sum now. We bought the tickets for Gustav a few days ago (thanks to Jared Smith who helped us booking) and thanks to that his visa request is now processed. Hopefully he gets it in a few days. Ungrateful to get one is not cheap 46€/60$, you have also to pay a fee on the airport for leaving the country. He borrowed the money so that he can pay that yet. We collected enough to give him that back and pay also his accommodation.

We booked also the apartment a few days ago, unfortunately we had not enough money on the pledgie for paying the deposit, so I prepaid it as we needed an proof of an accommodation also for the visa request. So now if Gustav gets a visa he will be definitive at LibreGraphicsMeeting this year.

But there are also sad news, as we did not collect enough for sending Onyeibo Oku also to Madrid, he needed also a visa what meant a flight ticket and booked accommodation for getting it.

So now the pledgie isn’t finished yet as there is still some money to collect for Tatica hopefully some more Fedora friends will help her, I am sure they will get something in return if they wish.

Call For Supplemental Wallpaper Submissions

Februar 20th, 2013 von buergermeister

The Design Team is still working on the default wallpaper and design for Fedora’s next version, called “Schrödingers Cat“. We had two public brainstorm sessions and a lot of nice ideas came out: if you want to participate, Mizmo collected the ideas in a Pinterest board.

But that is not the only way you can contribute to Fedora 19. In addition to the default wallpaper, each Fedora version has a package with so called ‘Supplemental Wallpapers,’ submitted by the community. From these submissions, the Design Team traditionally chooses the best (here you can find the for Fedora 18 chosen ones.) This time, not only the design team will vote for the best ones – all Fedora contributors can vote. But first, we need your submissions. So how do you do that?

First there are some rules. Here are the technical specifications:

  • Submitted wallpapers must use a format that can be read by software available in Fedora Package Collection. Preferred image formats include SVG and PNG.
  • Master files, which may be further edited, should be maintained in non-lossy formats. Preserving vector graphics, raster layers, and channels is important for such materials.
  • Originals for landscape formats must be a minimum of 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. The larger the better. Photographic submissions should be made at the highest resolution the camera is capable of.
  • Submitted wallpapers should be provided in a 16 x 9 aspect ratio when possible.
  • No watermarks, signatures, photographer/creator names, or messages may be included in any part of the work. However if the license allows, and the photo is compelling enough, we could remove watermarks.

Now here are the organizational rules:

  • Submissions must not contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright infringement. If your submissions include or derive from artwork created by other people, please make sure the license of the original work you incorporate is compatible with Fedora and that you are not violating any of the provisions of its license. Just because a work is licensed with a Creative Commons license does not mean it is free to use (make sure you provide attribution to artists that license their work with a CC Attribution clause.)
  • Submission should have the consent and approval of the author or creator
  • Submissions re thereby licensed to the public for reuse under CC-BY-SA unless specifically identified as being licensed by another approved liberal open source license. See a list of approved licenses for Fedora. Note that we can not accept NC or ND submissions.

The deadline until you can submit your artwork is the March 31 2013 at 23:59 UTC. You can submit your material directly to the wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F19_Artwork/Submissions/Supplemental_Wallpapers. For further questions, you can send me a mail gnokii@fedoraproject.org. We are looking forward to many great submissions…

LibreGraphicsMeeting Campaign

Februar 5th, 2013 von buergermeister

In october I started a campaign, collecting some money for some people so that they can go to the next LibreGraphicsMeeting in Madrid. So the deadline for two of the persons is very near, only 10 days. At 15th the have to apply for an visa and for that they need the flight tickets and an accomodation. So far we collected 721 US$ on pledgie, that are 660 US$ after the fees. It’s not enough to send one of the 3 persons. As I stated before Gustav Gonzalez goes first but for him we need arround 100 US$ so that we can book the flights. For him the LibreGraphicsMeeting becomes more important as before. Some might know Nina Paley and/or her famous “Sita Sings The Blues“, four days ago she wrote a blogpost willing to migrate to an open source tool in the future, if there would be one. As you can see in the comments, nobody considers Tupi as tool. A lot of the mentioned tools arrent open source, wtf. Nina himself will go to the next LibreGraphicsMeeting and submited a talk there as an plea for an easy to use open source 2D animation tool, what of an coincidence. The only thing what is between a meeting of award-winning animator Nina Paley and Gustav as the author of an easy to use 2D animation tool are 100 US$.

Blender Cube Landscape

Februar 4th, 2013 von buergermeister

I was asked to do a screencast how to do the abstract cube thing from the last post, I am sorry cant record that as it is to much for my machine running that big file in Blender and recording at the same time. It stops recording sound. Instead of this I did another screencast, what you can do with cubes in Blender.

  • F19 Design Brainstorm Meeting

    Februar 2nd, 2013 von buergermeister

    The Fedora Design Team met yesterday in his IRC channel for a first brainstorming for Fedoras next version Schrödingers Cat. We had two major ideas, how Schrödingers Cat could represented in the design. First one is Schrödingers Cat is a thing between alive and dead, which are the opposite. That can be represented in the design with contrast or something like that. The second idea is boxes as the cat was in a box.

    We collected some ideas arround the ideas and Mizmo putted them on a pinterest board. Some of them are really interesting and definitly worth to work on them.

    I started working during the session on a mockup for one of the ideas, it can be found on the pinterest board. I even worked during last night more on it and so it looks now.

    In case you are interested to work also on that idea, the source file can be found here. It’s mainly to find the right color combination, lighting and camera position. The modelling isnt to complicated its only the default cube with a lot of modifiers.
