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…

  • Beiträge Chemnitzer Linux-Tage

    Februar 12th, 2013 von buergermeister

    In knapp einem Monat ist es wieder soweit, die Chemnitzer Linux-Tage gehen über die Bühne. Logisch das man mich da antreffen wird und Beiträge gibts von mir natürlich auch. Wer Bedarf hat, kann am Samstag morgen um 10.00 Uhr mit mir Inkscapen, wir kreieren in einem Workshop eine Jeanstasche mit Filtern und Pfadeffekten. Daran denken, für die Workshops muss man sich registrieren. Wer sein Inkscape-Buch mitbringt kann natürlich ein Autogramm bekommen, ein paar Exemplare werde ich aber wohl auch einstecken haben.

    Für den Sonntag habe ich dann noch einen Vortrag – Tupi wie die Indios laufen lernen. Tupi ist ein Programm zum Erstellen von 2D-Animationen, ich hab mich am vergangenen Wochenende hingesetzt und 2 Animationen erstellt.

    Da das Ganze als Präsentation geplant ist, werde ich live zeigen, wie ich diese Animationen mit Tupi erstellt habe. Wer also wissen möchte, wie es geht sollte am Sonntag 15:30 in den Vortragsraum V1 schauen. Btw noch kann Tupi etwas Hilfe bei den Reisekosten fürs LibreGraphicsMeeting vertragen.

    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.
