LGM 2013 – Travel founding for Gustavo, Onyeibo and Tatica

Oktober 15th, 2012 von buergermeister

Some might remember a little campaign I started in February. Its time to do it again, bit why now? The answer is very simple LibreGraphicsMeeting will be next year a little bit nearly a month earlier. Additional to that some of the receiver of the campaign need a visa for going to Spain, where the next LibrGraphicsMeeting will be. They have to get the visa 6weeks before they enter the country so that would be end of February. And additional to that the have to show the tickets for the flights especially the back flight and the reservation of a hotel, pension or something similar. So we need the most of the money until that date or they can not go to the event.

This time there are three persons, I like to collecting for:

Gustavo Gonzalez, who is the author of Tupi – Open 2D Magic, a program for doing traditional 2D animations. If you take a look there are really not a lot of alternatives in this area in the FLOSS world, the only one would be SynfigStudio but that is to complicated. Tupi is easier to handle and to learn. In the last months Tupi made also a lot of progress, we tried to package it but it was totally wrong build dependencies like ffmpeg made it not possible to include it into Fedora. So Gustavo removed all that dependencies and structured it new, so that you can use it without ffmpeg and export the animations as ogv. But ffmpeg support is still available as plugin. There was also some other major improvements like a storyboard. I am sure when it is packaged (it’s really near I have a packaged version running) a lot of people will like Tupi, the Design Team cant wait for it.
Gustavo tried already this year to go to the LibreGraphicsMeeting in Vienna but it did not happen because he had no money for doing it. He like to present Tupi at that event and I am very sure that is useful for him and the development of Tupi. Gustav made a little video trying to explain, why he wants to go to the next LibreGraphicsMeeting. So lets help him.

Second person is Onyeibo Oku from Nigeria. Onyeibo is since a long time member of the Fedora Design team, but he is also active as Ambassador in Africa. Onyeibo sketches really good and he is good with Blender. For him is important to meet some other people from the design team and he wishes also to give a talk at LibreGraphicsMeeting.

Last candidate I might know, its Tatica again. She was, thanks to a lot of donations, at the last LibreGraphicsMeeting and learned a lot there and like to go again.

So what will it cost? There are the flights for Tatica around 1200€/1550 US$, for Gustav around 1000€/1290US$ and for Onyeibo around 800€/1030US$. For Tatica last time we calculated 70€/90US$ for hotel. But we didn’t need so much because Tatica slept in an apartment which became much cheaper. I did some research and want to rent an apartment for them again, that will cost another 900€/1160US$. So the whole makes 3870€/5030US$

Because Pledgie and Paypal get each 3% of the sum, the sum would be 4080€/5300US$. Additional to that Paypal gets a small sum for each transfer, but that is hard to calculate. I calculated 80€/100US$ for that.

So what will happen if we get not the whole sum? When we reach the sum for the flight for Gustav, he will get it first, after that Onyeibo and last Tatica as she was already at LibreGraphicsMeeting. But we need the sum for the flights in February otherwise we get no visa for Gustav and Onyeibo. But hopefully we get the sum but that’s up on you. The Pledgie campaign can be found here.

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 0 LGM/Linuxwochen

Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

The 2nd of May was the first day of the 7th edition of Libre Graphics Meeting, I by myself call it the “Color Freaks Day” because most of the topics at this day scheduled talks was about color management. But the day started for Tatica and me with a little shopping trip. As I said in the last blogpost, our appartment was at a really cool place and we had not only cafes outside, we had directly opposite an supermarket and 20 meters away the next one. So we managed to get things like coffee, fruit juices, coffee cream and milk. And there was even a bakery so there was fresh Croissants at the breakfast. After a cup of coffee we all went to the venue, which was a 20 minutes walk.

As I mentioned before, the first day of Libre Graphics Meeting started with a lot of talks arround color management topics. The first talk was Richard Hughes: ColorHug – The Open Hardware Colorimeter, followed by Kai-Uwe Behrmann: Evolving Concepts for Colour Management, Color Management in SVG2 from Chris Lilley from W3C, and then again Kai-Uwe Behrmann with Colour Management a la Greek and Richard Hughes: colord – Linux Color Management Framework, One Year On. Last in this round was myself: Taxi DB – Call A Cab To Bring The Colors. What we learned at this day, is that there is not really a good documentation for users about starting with color management, so many beginners have problems. Hopefully Kai-Uwe Behrmanns and mine talk at LinuxTag will helpful for that. When I understood Chris Lilley right then naming of colors in SVG2 will be possible so then transferring spot color names will be possible. For me it was the chance to introduce Hughsie to TaxiDB. He showed interest in using it but not in the way we thaught, but we managed to find a way over the week, using it for his needs and also for what I thaught TaxiDB should be, so a win-win. On the end Richard and Kai-Uwe managed to talk with each other and there is a new begin on OpenICC. The day ended for us with an picnic, Mizmo, Emichan, Tatica and me cooked and we went to the Danube channel, which was also not far away from our appartment. The crowed became again bigger as Allan Day, Garret LeSage, Jakub Steiner, Jiri Eischmann and some others joined us. Was really a nice get together.

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.

Tupi – 2D Animationsprogramm

März 20th, 2012 von buergermeister

Schon seit einer Weile beschäftige ich mich mit Animation, dass ist ja eigentlich mit SVG möglich. Bis jetzt fehlte mir da aber das richtige Werkzeug, aber jetzt scheine ich fündig geworden zu sein.
Wenn man klassische 2D Animationen mit Open Source machen möchte, dann war bisher Synfig Studio die Wahl. Problem hier, die Zeichenwerkzeuge machen es mir schwer und auch die GUI ist für meinen Geschmack unübersichtlich. Das nächste Problem wäre, dass Synfig Studio im Moment keine Animation von SVG mit SMIL oder ähnlichem vorsieht, dafür gibt es zwar Planungen aber wer weiss wann das verfügbar ist.
Nun bin ich vor einer Weile auf ein kleines aber vielversprechendes Projekt gestoßen, welches sich Tupi 2D Magic nennt. Tupi sieht den Export als SMIL schon mal vor und ebenfalls als Bildfolge oder Video. Die Zeichenwerkzeuge sind zwar immer noch nicht weltbewegend, dass tut der Sache allerdings keinen Abbruch, da man SVG importieren kann. Diese Vorgehensweise kommt mir natürlich sehr entgegen. Mit Hilfe des sogenannten Tweenings lassen sich auf diese Weise schnell Animationen erzeugen.
Wie schnell und einfach geht zeige ich in dem folgendem Screencast, der zeigt wie schnell eine drehende Animation zustande kommt.

Das mit Hilfe von Inkscape und Tupi auch wundervolle Animationen rasch produzierbar sind zeigt das folgende Beispiel.

Alle Schritte, die nötig sind um dieses Video zu produzieren inklusive der Audio- und Videobearbeitung findet man im Portal von Tupi, dort findet man auch die SVG-Datei um genau dieses Video nach zu produzieren.

Einen Haken hat das Ganze allerdings zur Zeit, funktionierende Pakete sind schwer zu finden. Nutzer von Ubuntu finden Pakete hier. Nutzer von Fedora und openSUSE hingegen, müssen Tupi selbst übersetzen. Das macht allerdings keinen Spaß, das kann ich prophezeien. Das liegt daran, dass der Entwickler ffmpeg eingebaut hat, und weder Fedora noch openSUSE erlauben das in ihren Buildsystemen. Es wird aber bereits daran gearbeitet, das entsprechend zu entfernen, da man dieses ohnehin nur benötigt, wenn man AVI oder ähnliches exportieren möchte. Und wenn man das braucht, so kann man später auch ffmpeg nachinstallieren. Einige Binärpakete, für allerdings veraltete Releases kann man hier finden. Wer sich dennoch ans übersetzen wagen möchte, der findet hier Hilfe für openSUSE und hier für Fedora.
Wie man sehen kann, brauchen derartige Softwareprojekte dringend Hilfe, beim packen und entwickeln, daher ist jede Hilfe willkommen. Tupi braucht auch noch weitere Hilfe. Der Hauptentwickler dieser Software würde gern zum Libre Graphics Meeting nach Wien reisen, um sich dort mit den Entwicklern anderer freier Grafiksoftware auszutauschen und Ideen für Tupi zu finden und es weiter zu entwickeln. Unter anderem würde er denjenigen in Wien treffen können, der Tupi für Fedora packen will. Dafür fehlt Gustav allerdings das Geld für den Flug, dieser kostet allein 1000$ und er muss um ein Visa zu bekommen, Hin- und Rückflugticket vorweisen, ebenso eine Reservierung für die Übernachtung. Im Moment sammelt er dafür Geld und bis jetzt sieht es sehr trübe aus, wer also Tupi ein wenig helfen möchte, damit die Entwicklung dieses Werkzeuges weitergeht, findet hier ein Pledgie.

status update on Tatica travels to LGM

Februar 27th, 2012 von buergermeister

A month ago I asked for help with collecting some money for support Tatica that she can go to LibreGraphicsMeeting in Vienna. Time for make an little status report. We have 38 donations until yet and raised 1,257.00$. Also time to say thx to many people like Bert Desmet, Christoph Wickert, Ankur Sinha, Jaroslav Reznik, Emily Dirsh and many many more. Even from the openSUSEcommunity and Libre Graphics Meeting folks came some money.

So whats the status now? As I said we raised 1257$ on Pledgie, but that means not we have so much, because Pledgie gets 3% and Paypal gets also 2,9% and 0.30$ for each donation. That means we raised 1171,44$ right now. Thats not enough for the flight tickets, I searched with Tatica for tickets and the cheapest we found was a flight from Iberia for 1072€ what means 1436,48 US$. But we already missed the point for booking this flight, now tickets are arround 1120€ what means arround 1500US$. At least we have to pay maybe some money to Paypal for exchange from $ to €. So we still need some money only for booking the flights. So plz help us to raise this money. The Pledgie campaign can be found here.

Vienna Calling

Januar 26th, 2012 von buergermeister

Im April und Mai ist es wieder soweit, Linux und Open Source tourt durch Österreich. Den Anfang machen die LinuxTage in Graz, welche bereits auf der Suche nach interessanten Beiträgen sind und am 28. April statt finden. Die Einreichungsfrist für Beiträge endet Mitte März. Am 3. Mai geht es dann weiter in Wien und zwar bis zum 5. Mai. Auch hier sind die Macher bereits auf der Suche nach Austellern und Beiträgen.

Die LinuxWochen in Wien haben für dieses Jahr folgende Schwerpunkte im Programm: Audio, Multimedia & Arts (Sound Design, Videoschnitt,…), Content Management, Webanwendungen, Webprogrammierung , Datenschutz, Verschlüsselung, Free Software (Gnu, GPG, Tor, …), Robotik und Steuerung (Arduino, Lego Mindstorm, …), GIS, GeoDaten, OpenData (Grass, OpenStreetMap, QGis, …) , IT Security, Programme für Home und Office PCs (Office, Browser, Email, …), Smartphones Hardware und Software (z.B. Android), Software Entwicklung von Anwendungen bis Embedded Devices, Grafik, Visualisierung, 3D (Gimp, Blender, Inkscape, …), Spieleentwicklung & Game Design & Level Editing, Systemadministration, Cloud & Cluster, Virtualisierung. Bis zum 1. April kann man hier Beiträge einreichen.
Besonders unter dem Punkt Grafik und 3D wird man wohl sehr viel in diesem Jahr finden, da das LibreGraphicsMeeting ebenfalls zu diesem Zeitraum unter dem Dach der LinuxWochen stattfinden wird. Hier treffen sich die Entwickler, wohl nahezu aller bekannten Open Source Programme aus dem Bereich Grafik, um sich auszutauschen. Wer selbst all die schönen Programm wie GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus, Blender, DigiKam, Hugin, Krita, MyPaint, Pitivi und viele andere benutzt und ein kleines Dankeschön dafür geben will, hat hier die Chance. Das LibreGraphicsMeeting hat wie im vergangenen Jahr wieder ein Pledgie, mit dem man das LGM unterstützen kann, das Geld dient zur Unterstützung der anreisenden Entwickler bei den Reisekosten. Leider ist im vergangenem Jahr nicht genügend zusammengekommen, also unterstützt die Entwickler der Programme ;)

Es wird sich also lohnen, an den LinuxWochen in Wien teilzunehmen. Ich selbst werde wohl ganz sicher, wie alle Jahre, wieder vor Ort sein und sicher auch mit Workshops zu Inkscape & Co. und Vorträgen vertreten sein.

Spenden fürs LGM 2011

April 5th, 2011 von buergermeister

Dieses Mal will ich nur euer Bestes, euer Geld :D Nein jetzt mal im Ernst, seit 2006 gibt es ein jährliches Treffen von Entwicklern und Anwendern freier Grafiksoftware, dass Libre Graphics Meeting. In diesem Jahr wird dieses Treffen wieder in Montreal/Canada stattfinden, dort treffen Entwickler von GIMP, Inkscape, sK1, Blender, Krita, Scribus, Hugin, Open Clipart Library und Open Font Library sowie weiterer freier Grafiksoftware aufeinander. Das Ganze natürlich nicht ohne Erfolg. So wurde dort unter anderem der UniConvertor gestartet, mit dem es heute möglich ist Corels CDR-Dateien zu konvertieren, auch startete man OpenRaster als Austauschformat für Rastergrafikprogramme.
Der Call for Papers ist noch bis zum 20. April offen, bis jetzt sehen aber die Einreichungen, jedenfalls für mich interessant aus. An einem fehlt es allerdings trotzdem, am lieben Geld. Es gibt für das LGM 2011 ein Pledgie und 12.000$ sollen zusammen kommen, bis jetzt sind es aber gerade einmal knapp 900. Also falls ihr zufällig eines der oben genannten Programme benutzt oder vielleicht Cliparts, Fonts aus den freien Bibliotheken, wie wäre es mit einer kleinen Spende?
