LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013

April 17th, 2013 von buergermeister

Vergangene Woche war ich in Madrid zum LibreGraphicsMeeting. Der jährlichen Zusammenkunft vieler Grafikprojekte, wie GIMP, Krita, Darktable, Scribus, Inkscape und vieler anderer. Neben dem Vortragsprogramm, in dem ich mit zwei Beiträgen vertreten war, gibt es Zusammenkünfte der Entwickler und Workshops. Am ersten Tag hatte ich meinen Vortrag zur Fedora Design Suite und am dritten zu Open Source Movies. An vielen Meetings habe ich teilgenommen, so an den Gesprächen zwischen Tupi und Krita and denen geklärt wurde, wie beide Programme interagieren können. Dabei sind Fehler im Datenmodell von Tupi zu Tage gekommen, die in naher  Zukunft geändert werden. Damit wird Tupi dann schneller im Laden von Reihenbildern zum Beispiel. Auch Ideen zu OpenRaster als mögliches zusätzliches Datenformat haben stattgefunden, dass würde ermöglichen das Tupi Dateien von Krita und Mypaint übernehmen kann. Aber auch die Gespräche zwischen Krita, GIMP und Mypaint zu einem gemeinsamen Brush-Format habe ich verfolgt, auch hier tut sich so einiges. Auch bei Fonts, tut sich so einiges, wie ich am Rande mitbekommen habe, die Gespräche habe ich allerdings nicht mitverfolgt. Persönlich habe ich die Zeit genutzt um mit Tavmong Bah über Aufzählungen im SVG-Standard zu sprechen, dieses Feature wird in meinem Blog oft im Zusammenhang mit Inkscape gesucht und auch in meinen Vorträgen angefragt. Die schlechte Nachricht ist, dass dieses Feature auf jeden Fall von Fliesstext abhängig ist, dieses Feature wurde schon im Zusammenhang mit SVG 1.2 gecancelt. Da wäre die Möglichkeit Aufzählungen ähnlich zu integrieren, wie Textumbrüche aber diese werden beim speichern als konformes SVG ja zerstört. Auch im Inkscape IRC wird dieses Feature oft nachgefragt, die Problematik hier ist, das diese Wünsche ans W3C herangetragen werden müssen und nicht an Inkscape, so also wenn ihr es wollt schreibt an die Arbeitsgruppe. Die vertretenen Browser-”Hersteller” haben jedenfalls kein Interesse daran, die wollen SVG möglichst klein halten.

Es tut sich also eine ganze Menge in der Welt der freien Grafikprogramme und die 2013er Ausgabe des LGM hat wieder einige Sachen vorwärts geschoben. Bleibt am Schluss zu sagen, dass ich gespannt bin auf die 2014er Ausgabe des LGM egal ob sie in Montreal, Medellin, Buenes Aires oder hier in Deutschland in Leipzig statt findet. Auch in der Organisationsstruktur des LGM hat sich einiges getan, was zukünftige Meetings verbessern wird. Also alles in allem hat es sich gelohnt nach Madrid zu fahren.

Bleiben nur noch zwei Dinge zu sagen, erstens es fehlt noch Geld auf dem offiziellen LGM-Pledgie und auch auf dem für Gustav Gonzalez/Maria Leandro und zweitens wer Lust hat ein eventuelles LGM in Leipzig organisieren zu helfen, kann sich bei mir melden.

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 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/

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.

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$.

LibreGraphicsMeeting 2013

Januar 22nd, 2013 von buergermeister

Es ist ja noch etwas Zeit bis zum nächsten LibreGraphicsMeeting in Madrid, dem Treffen nahezu aller freien Grafikprojekte. Noch bis zum 15. Februar kann man Vorträge und Präsentationen einreichen. Da nicht alle Applikationen wie zum Beispiel GIMP oder Scribus über eigene Organisationen verfügen oder wie bei Krita KDE die Entwickler unterstützen kann, sind viele der Entwickler auf eine Reiseunterstützung vom LibreGraphicsMeeting angewiesen. Aus diesem Grunde sammelt das LGM wieder per pledgie um für diese Kosten aufkommen zu können.

Daneben sammele ich persönlich auch dieses Jahr wieder für jemanden persönlich, der sich auch nicht leisten kann die Reisekosten vorstrecken zu können und dann 12-18 Monate auf die Rückvergütung vom LGM zu warten. Dieses Mal gibt es sogar 3 Begünstigte obwohl ich zweifel habe, dass alle 3 noch zum LGM reisen können. Denn 2 brauchen für die Einreise Visa und die sind von Flugtickets und dem Nachweis einer Unterkunft abhängig. Mir persönlich ist Gustav Gonzalez als Entwickler von Tupi am wichtigsten, dass er die Möglichkeit erhält am LGM teilzunehmen. Für diesen fehlen auch nur noch rund 200$ für den Flug und etwa 150$ für Unterkunft.

Fall also der ein oder andere auf einige Euro verzichten kann, hier hat er eine einfache Möglichkeit zu freier Software beizutragen.

Indios erobern die Distributionen

Oktober 27th, 2012 von buergermeister

Der ein oder andere erinnert sich vielleicht an das Programm zum Erstellen von Animationen, welches ich vor einer Weile vorgestellt habe oder auch den Screencast dazu. Bisher war das Problem, das man zum ausprobieren Tupi selbst kompilieren musste, was selbst erfahrenen Leuten einiges an Kopfzerbrechen bereitet hat. Schon vor einer Weile hat Gustav begonnen Tupi umzuschreiben um den Distributionen das packen zu ermöglichen. Das war aus rechtlichen Gründen nicht so einfach bis dahin, da Tupi ffmpeg enthielt. Aber darüber hatte ich ja auch bereits geschrieben.
Die Mühen beginnen sich jetzt auszuzahlen, so ist Tupi jetzt für Ubuntu erhältlich. Allerdings in einer veralteten Version, 0.1r12 um genau zu sein.


Gustav arbeitet auch an einem Paket für Fedora, welches ich bereits installiert habe und welches in wenigen Tagen auch verfügbar sein wird. Damit steht einer einfachen Installation von Tupi nichts mehr im Wege.

Falls es da draussen Leute gibt, die Tupi gern für eine andere Distribution packen würden nur zu, darüber würde sich Gustav auf jeden Fall freuen.
Aber das ist nicht die einzige Hilfe über die sich Gustav freuen würde, der Autor von Tupi plant am nächsten LibreGraphicsMeeting in Madrid teilzunehmen. Er benötigt dazu allerdings Unterstützung, da er die Reisekosten nicht allein tragen kann. Aus diesem Grund gibt es für ihn und zwei andere ein Pledgie. Aber lassen wir da mal Gustav selbst ein paar Dinge dazu sagen.

Linux Color Management Hackfest

Mai 22nd, 2012 von buergermeister

One of the good things that happend on LGM, was that Richard Hughes and Kai-Uwe Behrmann found time to speak with each other and found a way how they can work together in the future. That brought a new spirit to OpenICC and made a lot of people happy. Since then there was a lot of work on metadata key and also on some discussions about color managed printing. But this is mostly theoretical work and both like to write also code. So time to move forward there also.

There was since a long time the idea to an Hackfest on color management stuff. On LGM we had all three together also the time to speak about this topic, and we all had the feeling that would move color management on the free desktop forward. So now we made some plans and the hackfest will be in November. As you can see Kai-Uwe and also Hughsie blogged already about it.

The hackfest will be from 16th-19th of November 2012 in Brno, RedHat offices. There is already a wiki page for the hackfest. Planned is to get some experts in color management together with authors of applications, also working color managemed printing, move some browsers forward on this topic and also work on color management in toolkits. Some people from QT showed already interest.

So if you are interested, contact me or Kai-Uwe or simple join the #openicc channel on freenode.

day +3 LGM/Linuxwochen

Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

Saturday the 5th of May was the last day of Libre Graphics Meeting and also of the Linuxwochen Vienna. It was the day of Beastie and Puffy invasion, because the european BSDday.eu was also in the venue. In the morning I had again a Inkscape workshop on the Linuxwochen, which was better visited as the one on the day before. So I had no time for the talks at the Libre Graphics Meeting. After a short lunch break a second workshop followed. It was a workshop about the whole workflow for preparing magazines/books and of course working with free software. Planned was to prepare a book with all the paper of LGM in that workshop, but I only got 3 of them. So on the end it was more a BoF-session about all the work which have to be done preparing a magazin or book. Thats already a lot, book sizes, book layout, font decission and all that.

After the workshop my voice was gone at least until I had a drink. But I needed not really my voice anymore that day. I joined Pete Ippels talk Transitional Work Flow For Artists Making The Libre Graphics Leap and and It Builds Character a talk from Nathan Willies introducing new free software tools for font development. After that the LGM ended and there was a short discussion where the next one should be. So next LGM will be in Madrid and there are some voices doing it in Asia. And thats problematic, there are to much people who like to protect what they have, an LGM in Europe or Montreal. But we will see…

The day ended for most of us in the same restaurant we went on tuesday evening, so that meant “Schnitzel” for the most of us. This time the crowed was bigger as in tuesday so we needed another table extra. But we stayed not to long as some of us, already started there travelling home directly from there or at the next morning.

Nicu managed already to upload most of his pictures and Mizmo did also made a bigger upload. For Taticas pictures I think we have to wait for a few days, she is in “zombie mode” after her arrival at home yesterday evening.

day +2 LGM/Linuxwochen

Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

Friday the 4th of May was the 3rd day of Libre Graphics Meeting and the 2nd of Linuxwochen Vienna. The day of the goat invasion or the day I had not really fun. Why, I missed all the talks I was really interested in. For example Johan Engelen with the development of Powerstroke in Inkscape. I missed them because I had at the same time an Inkscape workshop on Linuxwochen. The workshop wasnt so crowed as they normally are. Because it was friday in the morning, a lot of people have to work. But there was no other time slot left. So I couldnt enjoy all the interesting talks from the GIMP world.

At 3pm was a bigger slot with an panel: Doing Design In The World Of FLOSS which Mizmo, Allan Day and me was planned for, Peter Sikking joined us also. The problem sitting on the end means, very often the points are taken. After that I skipped one talk and watched later Nicus talk about Free Culture meets Free Software: Wiki Loves Monuments and after that a video presentation from Bassam Kurdali about the Tube movie project. I had an conversation with Bassam a week before LGM started about that, because there was the idea to do a free movie session on the Linuxwochen after party on friday. But before we went to that, there was another q/talk planned like the day before. This time about open hardware, Pete Ippel talked about the MilkyMist One, Richard Hughes about the ColorHug and normally Mickey Lauer was planned but he didnt make it, so Zoltan joined the round and talked about the Nanonote.

After the q/talk I played again the role of a tourist guide and we went to the MuseumsQuartier. That is one of the places I like most, there is a lot of art and its also a place for Geeks as there is the quartier 21 for digital art and life style. The Linuxwochen after party wasnt invaded from LGM people like Nicu wrote, it was actually planned this way. Normally the after party its just a bigger table with arround 20 people as the most speakers are on there way home after there talk. Thats a problem of a longer event, you will never get all together. I tried to show some free movies, but it was already to late for that. On the social event Elisa de Castro Guerra went to me and used one of the few chances to speak with me, it was actually funny, because she works also for Doudou Linux, where I did last year made a submission to the Logo Contest and we had time to talk a little bit about it. Later we went for a couple of hours to the Metalab, Viennas hackerspace, which isnt far from the MQ and then home.

day +1 LGM/LinuxWochen

Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

May the 3rd was the second day of Libre Graphics Meeting and the first one of Linuxwochen Vienna. So in the foyer of the UAS Technikum opened the exhibition area and also DrupalDay.at and the first talks of Linuxwochen helped to fill the area with people. Of course there was a Fedora booth at the exhibition and it was the biggest one. I brought the table cloth and one of the rollups to Vienna, and also what was left from FOSDEM on stickers. Mizmo brought also some stickers and flyers and also some DesignSuite DVD. Zoltan brought cheatcubes, DVD and an OLPC. So the booth was well prepared. The Fedora booth was also photographed from the Der Standard and published on his online platform. As you can see not only the both was photographed, also Taticas keynote was topic. She had later an interview with Der Standard and got there own article. The topic on migration to Linux is really from interest for the people in Vienna, as the migration in that city failed and they have to spent now again every year a lot of mon€y for licenses. On the end the topic was from so much interest, that the organizers decided to give a second slot to Tatica speaking about the situation arround Open Source in Latinamerica. Together we managed the spontaneously additional talk.

On the Libre Graphics Meeting side Mizmo and Emichan had their talk: An awesome FLOSS design collaboration workflow presenting SparkleShare, Magic Mockup, GlitterGallery and DesignHub. I didnt see a lot of talks on LGM on this day, but this one I didnt miss. The day on the event ended with an traditional q/talk from q/uintessenz. The topic on that panel discussion was “Open Content, Free Culture” the guests was Pete Ippel, Ricardo Lafuente and Ana Carvalho who work together on Libre Graphics Magazin and the guy who does always Free & Open Movie Nights, I think he is called gnokii ;) So an second additional talk at this day. We didnt went out for dinner this evening and I prepared a dinner in our appartment, “Zwiebelkuchen” and 2 nice bottle of wine.

day -1 LGM/Linuxwochen

Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

I should call this day the “cat herding day”, because it was the day of most of the arrivals. Was also a day where I had to learn some things, first of all check your phone that it is working and the second if you meet on a subway station, tell the people they should not get out and wait downstairs, otherwise its really hard to find the person you like to meet. But we managed the fetch all the people we expected. First arrivals was Nicu and Emily. Both arrived nearly at the same time but the problem they didnt know each other and in the case of Emily I didnt know the flight number she arrives with. But both managed to get to the appartment alone. The cool thing was, we had directly before our house a cafe with an “Schanigarten” so we could sitting outside drinking a “Melange” waiting for them. After they put there luggage into the appartment, we moved to the next meeting point. The next meeting point was also a cafe in the 7th district so nearly downtown, I had ordered a table there before for all of us and we had a nice brunch there.

Zoltan and Geri arrived also to late at there appartment, so I was sitting on a hot chair not missing the next meeting. But that was one of the points for the brunch, I also had can the group left there fetching Mizmo and Hughsie and come later back. But they managed it in time and they went with me fetching the others. But it took us really a lot of time to find them, so no sightseeing on the rest of the day. So we went all back to our appartments and went later to an restaurant. We was really a big crowd there because Behdad, Miska, Pete Ippel and later Christian Jeitler from the Linuxwochen team joined us also. So the fedorians get mixed with other LGMers. So we had a lot of nice conversations there and Tatica realized first time how big a “Wiener Schnitzel” should be ;) But we stayed not to long because most was tired from the travel and next day LGM would start in the morning. The sad part on this evening was that Kai-Uwe didnt join us, because he liked to prepare his slides for the talks on the next day. Hughsie was not happy about that, but we managed that both had time together later in the week.
