lassegulkwwii: Thats good. I suggest you use a little less white in your colours. what you threw up on the wiki looks a little dull. im really looking forward to see what you do!01:07
troy_sDoes the 'go' in gobuntu short for 'go'odchrist?01:22
andreasnwhat's a Gobuntu?01:25
lassegulandreasn: Gobuntu is an official derivative of the Ubuntu operating system, aiming to provide a distribution consisting entirely of free software.01:25
andreasnah, that one. I think Richard mentioned it01:26
lassegultroy_s: why should it be short for goodchrist?01:28
troy_slassegul: Rather like someone smacking their head and screaming out 'good f-ing christ'01:28
troy_slassegul: Those could be the most naff set of logo attempts I have ever seen.01:29
kwwiihi troy_s01:36
kwwiitroy_s: why did you take down your wallpaper? It was one of the best ones on the page01:36
kwwiibtw, if anyone is interested here is the usplash I whipped up for gobuntu:01:37
lassegulwhich wp was that?01:38
kwwiigobuntu is the ubuntu for people who get picky about everything being completely free and OSS in their linux01:38
troy_skwwii: It just was too far off the beaten track as given by the samples.  And it needed to be pushed a little further along finished.01:49
troy_skwwii: Good christ -- does sab insist on the progress bars?01:50
kwwiitroy_s: erm, progress bars in the usplash you mean?01:50
troy_skwwii: Yes.01:50
kwwiitroy_s: I was looking for the SVG of your background to work on some ideas...any chance I could download it somewhere?01:51
troy_skwwii: The arch has quite a bit of flexibility, but no one has challenged it yet.01:51
troy_skwwii: We did a pretty impressive one for Flux, but it isn't out yet.01:51
kwwiitroy_s: no, we could use a spinner (or whatever you call it) too but someone would have to program it first01:51
kwwiitroy_s: cool, can't wait to see it01:52
troy_skwwii: Yeah.  The optics on gobuntu's design look like they are already out of the gate with a limp.  The recycling bin arrows just leave me going 'wtf'.  It seems as though the brainstorm phase was rather crippled.01:52
kwwiithe gobuntu usplash was a case of "the one they had looked really bad" and I was told not to work on that too much as it should be totaly community driven01:53
troy_skwwii: I don't know where sab sees 'recycle' (rather strong motif at this point) mixed with 'freedom'01:53
lassegultroy_s: whos in charge?01:53
troy_slassegul: Not the guy to ask about anything Canonical does.  Kwwii is.01:53
kwwiitroy_s: I do not think that he had much to do with that, really01:53
lassegultroy_s: ok01:53
troy_slassegul: As far as I can see, Ubuntu is doomed by the decision makers -- being two figures.01:53
lassegultroy_s: and those two are?01:54
kwwiimy personal opinion about gobuntu is that it was created so people would stop complaining about the restricted drivers in Ubuntu01:54
troy_skwwii: It is sad that sab is pushing towards brown fluid (which is again -- soooooo bloody dated) -- your textured / atomic rings were interesting I thought.01:54
troy_skwwii: That said, that elephant texture caught me off guard.01:54
kwwiitroy_s: actually, he has not responded on the brownfluid stuff - but I assume that it is closest to what he will like01:55
kwwiiyeah, the elephant tex looks pretty killer, just not sure about the link to africa01:55
troy_skwwii: Yeah... it's pretty simple -- figure out what was the mainstream acceptable Win95 wallpaper from about 10 years prior to the date of launch.01:55
kwwiiwe really want to stick to something more abstract01:55
troy_skwwii: The african thing is bong.  The texture itself has much to work out of.01:55
troy_skwwii: Although it is rather uniform in presentation there.  I would think you could do some sort of vignette work with it in layers or something... who knows.  It would need some brainstorming exploration.01:56
lassegulkwwii: is there a problem as to putting it as secondary wallpaper, like chocolate is for feisty and dawn was for edgy?01:56
kwwiilassegul: in the end, the full decision rests on sabdfl...I can kinda point people in the direction that I think he will like, little more than that01:56
troy_slassegul: chocolate was another abortion attempt by jmak to meet some sabdfl driving.01:56
kwwiilassegul: nope, no problems with that at all01:56
troy_s(of which I had the displeasure of participating in a portion of that mess.)01:57
kwwiionce again, I will tell everyone that we can include additional artwork from the community without any problems - if anyone would just step up and work on it01:57
lassegulhow does a detailed a crisp picture like the elephant thing look when its downscaled to 1024x768? and what is the default size WPs are shipped in?01:58
kwwiiit seems that people are only interested in working on the stuff that will be default01:58
troy_skwwii: I would be impressed if someone would at least work out of the damn samples presented (aside from that gag dapper wall lol)01:58
kwwiiif nothing else, in another week or so I will take the ones I think are best and put them in a community artwork package01:58
troy_skwwii: Those two wallpapers are at least a step towards communication.01:58
kwwiitroy_s: agreed01:59
troy_skwwii: I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt though -- until someone reads a fundamental bloody piece of literature of how colours are presented in the human mind, Ubuntu is doomed to hear the 'I can't stand brown' argument again and again.01:59
kwwiitroy_s: not to be mean, but I was wondering what people were thinking...we posted those older wallpapers and then people kept submitting blue stuff and things completely off-track02:00
troy_skwwii: Without a supporting cast of NON BROWN colours (obviously keeping brown as a base), the tone will lose its impact and be tuned out.02:00
troy_skwwii: Yep.  It is again, fine for a brainstorm.02:00
troy_skwwii: The problem is, again, no driving.02:00
kwwiitroy_s: yes, we definitely need to move on and expand our colors from brown on brown02:01
lassegultroy_s: how about making the goal a little clearer. because i cant really see what you mean by "working out of the damn samples". I used the colours, and i thought i would add a little gloss, and then i thought i liked darker colours, and so it kinda evolved. so it started from the samples02:01
troy_slassegul: The samples are pretty clear.02:01
lassegultroy_s: then everyone else is just stupid?02:01
troy_slassegul: In my brain I see largely two things -- a certain 'mystical / magical' impact from the sweeps.02:02
troy_slassegul: And perhaps a tinkering of 'awe' conjured up from those rather awe inspiring images of nebulae / starforms.02:02
kwwiilassegul: I think that of all the pics on the wiki yours are probably the closest, in color, to what we need02:02
kwwiibut for Gutsy we really need to look at the ideas of luminance and a bit of the design ideas from the older pics02:03
troy_slassegul: But in terms of _every_ sample on that wiki, not one vaguely hammers home any of those keystones.02:03
lassegultroy_s: Ok, thats a lot easier then02:03
troy_slassegul: Further, gloss is dead.  I will give kwwii full credit for abolishing most of the gloss in Ubuntu.02:04
kwwiigloss is sooo 200002:04
troy_slassegul: It reeks of 1950-1960 boraxification.02:04
troy_slassegul: During that era, the consumers were flooded with chroming / glossing of _everything_.  It quickly became tacky.02:04
lassegultroy_s: :)02:05
troy_slassegul: Which is where that fecking reflection floor / gloss is.02:05
troy_slassegul: Unfortunately, mainstream only has about two large design directions to see -- Windows and Apple.  Free Software has the potential to offer them sooooo many more alternatives.02:05
lassegultroy_s: i think you still can add some shine to things and still look good.02:05
kwwiitroy_s: as far as driving things go, as soon as I felt I had a good chance at starting that I was given enough work to overload and kill any real hope of managing things like that02:05
troy_slassegul: That said, simply abandoning gloss isn't an end unto itself.  It must be filled with another distinct and well evolved style.02:06
lassegultroy_s: fedora did the sharp edges and cool vector shapes thing02:06
troy_slassegul: Good luck on that.  I encourage you to have a peek at some of the more contemporary / avante garde design work out there.02:06
lassegultroy_s: we want magical lights?02:06
troy_slassegul: if anything you will see a migration to an almost art-deco / constructionist two dimensionality.02:07
lassegultroy_s: do you have an example? (never attended art school)02:07
troy_slassegul: Ask kwwii -- he pretty much offered up the two samples.  The idea would probably be to knock something off in identical stylings but different in execution.02:07
troy_slassegul: Erk.  Maybe.  (I really should bed.)  Give me a second.02:07
lassegultroy_s: thanks02:08

troy_sthats deco more or less02:08
troy_salthough the entire movement goes much further than artwork -- into furniture etc.02:09
lassegulomg thats horrble :)02:09
=== kwwii reboots, brb
troy_sthat's constructivism.02:09
lassegulah  thats nice02:09
troy_swell it is only nice because you are starting to see it again02:09
troy_sthat is how fickle art consumption is.02:10
lassegultroy_s: me and a buddy made this for our organisation once http://spiderrico.deviantart.com/art/Kraftsosialisme-4053183002:11
lasseguland this one: http://spiderrico.deviantart.com/art/Darth-Kader-2-4053239002:13
lassegulis this something like what you had in mind?02:13
troy_slassegul: I have no control of anything and therefore I have nothing 'in mind'.02:14
troy_sdarth-kader is very constructivist however.02:14
troy_slassegul: You are cueing on a style that has been repeated many many times.02:14
troy_slassegul: And it was entirely successful during its era.02:14
lassegultroy_s: what era is that? (the pictura is about 2 or 3 years old)02:15
troy_slassegul: Contemporary design is somewhere in a mix that I would estimate is 2 parts constructivism, 1 part art deco (which took MANY cues from constructivism), and 1.5 parts 60s psychedelia.02:15
lassegultroy_s: ok, I think maybe ill have to read up on this to understand it.02:16
troy_slassegul: If you are interested in art, I would encourage you to pick up some references and learn a little about art history.  The upside is that you will learn very quickly that art doesn't exist in a vacuum.  Major 'movements' are always a reaction / statement to something contemporary societally.02:16
troy_slassegul: Hell -- even what many call 'classic composition' is rooted in a movement that took place during the Renaissance.02:17
troy_slassegul: The point is that when someone says something is 'pretty' or 'beautiful' it is always much more deeply rooted in societal values and learned behavior.02:18
troy_slassegul: And those societal values / contexts are constantly changing.  Ok... must jet.  Good night.02:19
troy_sNight kwwii.02:19
troy_set al.02:19
kwwiinight troy_s02:20
lassegulnigt troy_s02:22
lassegulkwwii: but isnt design more equal to fashion than art,like what looks good is much more defined what the designers tend to design that year, than social change? Like the mac effect, when everybode wanted to make things look an ipod og a macbook?02:33
lassegulart in soviet 1920s was defined by the revolution, desiging every bit of text with a reflection underneath it was just a trend this year, not some social change..02:35
lassegulor am i making a nonexisting divide between art and design?02:36
kwwiilassegul: I think that there are some similarities but as you mention, there is a difference between art and design02:37
kwwiiand I do think that the general trends in design change over time according to art, so in order to stay ahead of things it is important to see what is current in the art world02:38
kwwiianother important aspect is to see the design of the devices that the design will be displayed on as that plays a role in things as well02:42
kwwiithe wallpaper alone does not stand on its own02:42

lassegulkwwii: thats true02:43
lassegulkwwii: and interesting...02:43
lassegulkwwii: dont know much about art, i think much of it is arrogant, and in fact so are many of the artists. But lets say: 2008 was the year of the green and dark macabre art. how would that affect the design world? remeber this is just a hyphotetical answer so just make a scenario..02:53
lassegulkwwii: because i dont remember neither blue, magic lights or gloss being very popular in arts the last 10 years, even though they were the big thing a couple of years ago.02:55
kwwiiI would say that perhaps the macabre part would show up a bit...the green part really depends on branding more than just art02:55
kwwiilassegul: good point02:55

lassegulwhat program is used to make the breezy and warty wallpapers? is it just vector or is it vector with bitmap editing later on?03:07
kwwiiit is bitmap stuff, done in either photoshop or gimp03:08
lassegulI forced myself to learn GIMP and Inkscape because i wanted to contribute, and youre telling me those might be made in photoshop? ;-)03:09
