LP.net Gnome Splash Screens

Postby jargon » Sun Oct 17, 2004 4:13 am


I've made some Gnome 2.8 Splash Screens picturing some of the beautiful mountains of Pakistan.

It is being hosted at www.gnome-look.org:

Additionally, you can grab the full set, which includes 'linuxpakistan.net' text on each of the splash screens, plus install instructions at:

Feedback would be welcomed.

because i don't have any high res photos of Pakistan,
plus it takes a lot of time to make one from scratch and i'm limited in my abilities.

I wish more people on this forum would take an active role.

Great!!! I am going to ask Khattak to snitch these and add them to the Framework [ additional resources we add to CD when we re-master :) ].

This is not fair Jargon, we give you idea, explain every thing and yet we do not get wall paper :) What hurts more our logo is missing from right hand corner top :).

I hope you do have originals which you used, I will ask Shujaat to get it from you and then try make a wallpaper. Tou need to ask some one more whom you can rely upon for aesthetics about the fonts you have used and the location of the text on image. IMHO some of the diehard mountaineer's may find it bit annoying.

You need to add more images so that it becomes known as Karakoram series that will make them timeless just like Karakoram [ one more reason to sneak in our logo but with out words :)].

Look at the avatar and now this :) all by someone saying "i'm limited in my abilities ".
