Title: wallpapers, logos, etc.
Post by: dentonlt on December 20, 2009, 11:48:26 PM
I've only seen 2 threads on wallpapers & the logo:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=2841.0 - logo svg, by Kagashe
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=275.0 - logo svg + wallpaper, by Kagashe

And a few on the boot splash:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=3916.0 - dropping boot output
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=2638.0 - installing/trying out Splashy

I haven't seen any wallpaper collection (fan art!) but maybe this thread would be a good place for it. I've added my own here (2.6, 2.7 wallpapers, 1024x600; attached PNG/SVGs).

I'm interested to see what others have come up with.

Robert posted THIS (http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=3606.0) not long ago.

Hmm ... Some okay stuff. I don't see a place to sign up to post, though!

One more from me (300kb PNG): http://www.dentonlt.com/sites/default/files/node_images/tc_2.7b.png

Another for 2.8. Green [terminal] text on black makes for 7.8k background.  :P

1024x600 PNG; SVG file

for 2.10. Log in to see attached image files.
1024x600 PNG, or download the SVG and make your own.

I like the new stock background blue.
Reminds me of a Capcom superhero ...

The background blue has a special meaning for me.
Title: Re: wallpapers, logos, etc.
Post by: dentonlt on March 24, 2010, 08:47:25 PM
And that meaning is ... ? (I'm afraid I missed something)

I forgot to [re-]mention that I like the new/crisp logo.

Lets see if someone can guess.  ;D

Okay, that demands guessing. I expect to be way off.

You too love Mega Man?

Ah, the gimme!
I was way off, indeed.

cloud computing?

Post by: roberts on March 25, 2010, 08:52:18 PM
I code. It's in the code.
Title: Re: wallpapers, logos, etc.
Post by: 4-stroke on March 25, 2010, 10:04:21 PM
The code? C = Sea?
The sea?
Sea blue?
Title: Re: wallpapers, logos, etc.
Post by: dentonlt on March 25, 2010, 10:19:38 PM
Along the "sea" thing, C is for Core.
I'm doubtful, though.

Dodger Blue was a fine theory, if you ask me. Too bad it doesn't match the facts!

I write code. Many of you read my code. My mark is there.
Consider the subject. The answer will emerge.

I reckon the new blue is a great background color when you're using a transparent terminal. Good for nano/vim/other text editors ... but I don't know what editor you use, nor terminal, so ... I don't think that's what it is.

I'm sifting code and wondering what the hell I'm looking for :P Gotta keep guessing!

Interesting quizz.
Background color; jls' guess is reasonable...

I was off thinking bluecore firmware.
Title: Re: wallpapers, logos, etc.
Post by: roberts on March 26, 2010, 06:53:42 AM
jls, you are correct!
Now, do you like your color?
Title: Re: wallpapers, logos, etc.
Post by: 4-stroke on March 26, 2010, 08:44:21 AM
Oh, I get it now....  ::) ;D

The PNG is a bit weird (half transparent in the green area, and a few pixels of fully transparent at the top and left edges)? Though neither rsvg-view nor Opera show the SVG correctly either.

(This is why we all love SVG. Inter-app compatibility shines!)

That said, I do like the picture :)
Title: Re: wallpapers, logos, etc.
Post by: dentonlt on June 21, 2012, 11:52:24 PM
curaga: arrghh!! Thanks for that. I've put it into use on mine, but I had a solid/dark background. Sorry I didn't catch that. Fixed/replaced. Re the SVG, I made it on Inkscape. Now I now why SVG isn't so popular!

solorin: thanks for mentioning that thread. I really like the cal in the corner. Gives me ideas ...
