VL wallpapers
« on: September 06, 2006, 02:18:44 am »
Nice way to spread the news about vector is vie wallpapers. Some guy is flooding kde-look and xfce look with pclinuxos,zenwalk and etc wallpapers.That kinda annoys me, because I dont oftenly see VL wallpapers there.
=============
if you want to make a wallpaper yourself, you can easily do so with teh gimp and with these materials:
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/development/artwork
and fonts

Check out the VL6 theming thread here:

I think maybe we could make it all fit together with one nice approach I saw today:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=35341

This tells me one thing: What if we made it all Liquid. That rocks! The letters are awesome! The Linux Power letters I mean...

Really like that... could we have something with Vector on your blue wallpaper like that Blurrymind? Would be great!
Just a thought, but if we could make the font of the menus also like this fluid lettertype, it would help the consistency a lot, don't you think?

It's better to die 10 times, than never to have loved at all.

That VASM shot looks good... I wonder if that's the one hanumizzle was working on

Confirmed. It is the vision of how Vasm could look like by one of the writers at www.madpenguin.org.  AFAIK Hanu is busy writing perl scripts. Not making a fancy GUI. That is not important right now either.

Here's the page it was first seen:

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

I really love this wallpaper. I say, make it the default wp. It deserves to be. V's logo looks alot better without the planet.  :P

I don't know about you all, But IMO, this should be the default wallpaper for Dynamite... or SOHO, or at least one of the releases...

I gotta hand it to blurrymind... He's good

take a look
