Lunzdoes anyone know about animated wallpaper?07:41
troy_sLunz: What are you trying to do?07:41
troy_sLunz: You can write a python script that updates the gconf setting every now and then07:41
Lunzi want to use a wallpaper07:41
troy_sLunz: And you can have an animated wall.07:41
Lunzbut i want my wallpaper animate..07:41
troy_sOh man07:42
troy_sRead what I just typed.07:42
Lunzusing glmatrix as my wallpaper..is that possible?07:42
troy_sThat is a different thing07:42
troy_ssetting a screensaver as your root window will cause a few issues07:42
troy_sfor one, all of your desktop icons will not be there any more07:42
troy_sas you must tell nautilus to relinquish control of the root window07:42
troy_s(being the desktop)07:42
troy_sthen you simply tell the screensaver to display on the root window07:42
troy_sso in summary 1) set your gconf setting so that nautilus won't draw to the root window07:43
troy_s2) tell your glscreensaver to display on the root window (handle 0)07:43
troy_svery simple07:43
troy_sgoogle if you need more help07:43
Lunzwow..i dont understand what are you talking about...i am newbie lol07:43
Lunzhave you came across with xwinwrap07:44
troy_sLunz: Effectively 'nautilus' is your browser and file manager for the system -- it grabs hold of the root window so that you get automount icons and shortcuts on it.07:44
troy_sLunz: To display a screensaver in the root window (the desktop you are staring at) you will need to DISABLE nautilus from grabbing it -- that is a gconf setting.07:44
troy_sLunz: Then you tell your glscreensaver to write on it.07:45
troy_sLunz: http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Screensaver_in_Background07:45
Lunzdoes this work?07:46
troy_sLunz: Probably.  Experiment and learn something ;)07:48

nysosymfor the next ubuntu release, we need more default wallpapers, people love the idea, to have the choice of a poll with good wallpapers12:47
hellraiser_robsounds like a sensible idea to me12:48
hellraiser_robi guess once the wiki comes up people can start submitting them12:48
hellraiser_robi've no idea who makes the decision about how many get included per release12:49
nysosymbut i think there would be a problem with the space on a normal cd :-/12:49
lassegulyeah the CD is packed as I understand it.12:50
hellraiser_robyes there is that12:51
hellraiser_robbut i mean wallpapers are very simple to install yourself12:51
nysosymsure, but i think the most people use the wallpaper inside of the package12:53
=== andreasn [n=andreas@90-227-183-136-no128.tbcn.telia.com] has joined #ubuntu-artwork
nysosymthe best example is vista, many people love the collection of the wallpaper inside12:56
nysosymmaybe the best feature in windows vista :D12:56
nothlitmore default, lol, i don't know that any more will fit12:56
nothlitubuntu keeps getting larger and larger12:56
nothlitlassegul: what did you ping me about before12:57
lassegulnothlit: hi. do you know if there have been any discussions about moving to dvd at some point?12:57
lassegulnothlit: hmm..12:57
lassegulnothlit: thats a very long time ago, isnt it?12:57
nothlitthere is a dvd already12:58
nothlitbut isos are more accessible to burn or use on legacy systems12:58
nothlitcd isos*12:58
nothlitlassegul: yes it was two days ago12:59
lassegulnothlit: i dont remember anymore...12:59
nysosymhmm but ubuntu is one of the last distros who didn't use dvd isos as default12:59
nysosymi think cd isos should be the option, not the default one12:59
nysosymsooner or later is it impossible to avoid the dvd iso image01:01
nysosymwhen i look at me, i didn't buy cd-rs anymore, only dvd-rw01:02
nothlityou're still a tech geek01:03
hellraiser_robhopefully there will be no need to do anything but a seamless upgrade soon ;)01:03
nysosym(i know i'm not the middle of the earth*01:03
hellraiser_robi wonder what the chances of getting an area on the official site01:05
hellraiser_robfor additional official wallpapers + usplash options etc etc01:05
nysosymi think there should be one "big" default wallpaper, for official screenshots etc.01:07
lassegulhellraiser_rob: if you see the mailing list archives for this month, you will find discussions about art.ubuntu.com01:09
hellraiser_roblassegul: what was the outcome, greenlighted/01:10
nothlithellraiser_rob: http://ubuntu-art.org/01:12
nothlitfor less official, the wiki will hold less random works01:13
nothlitand i'm guessing most of it will go into the community package01:13
nothlitor someone will finally use the artwork builder01:13
nothlitand submit it themselves01:13
hellraiser_robnothlit: thanks for the link01:14
lassegulnothlit: great work with the wiki. its nearly finished now, until we have more to put up.01:15
lassegulnothlit: but still if you are clicking next to browse all the incoming alternate you will get to platypus and from there press next and go to /Incoming. You know how to solve that?01:17
nothlitmake a copy of platypus in hardy/alternate instead of a redirect01:19
nothlitlassegul: we have a whole page to work on, contribution guidelines01:20
nothlitand we can start on the faq as well lol01:20
nothlittheres always things to do01:20
lassegullol ok.01:21
