  • Drawing Great Logos in Inkscape
    letters like o e R etc If drawing on white experiment with transparent to white gradients usually but there are other colors with which to experiment Sometimes when drawing in 2D 5 you don t have to be completely accurate Sometimes you can throw a gradient the wrong way on purpose and suddenly find it just works Outlines around letters usually distracts and brings down the visual quality and reality Experiment by drawing a smaller version of a letter putting it on the same letter but shifted upwards and then throw a spherical transparent to white or vice versa gradient on it You might be shocked to find how aweseome this looks Experiment by drawing the inverse of a letter like a cutout shifting it upwards over the letter and putting a white to transparent or transparent to white gradient on it Put it on the letter and shift it some direction up down left right diagonal to see what kinds of effects it can do To give the letters a jello glass paperweight kind of look this is actually quite easy Draw a swath This is the inverse of a circle and only the upper righthand version of the corner of that cutout It sort of looks like a stretched boomerang Now put a white to transparent gradient on it Then drag it over the top of each logo item so that it touches the top and right sides of each item Sometimes if a letter is a different color if you ve dressed it up enough you can break logic here and not put the glass paperweight look on it I know this doesn t make sense but sometimes adding an inconsistent look to one already dressed up letter is just the ticket you need And it stays with that cool fun tone Letters are one thing but you ll want some image to go with it That s actually quite easy too If you import a bitmap of some image from the Internet such as images google com and keyword search you can draw an outline around an object in the bitmap very carefully and make a silhouette shape of it Remove the bitmap below it Then apply a gradient on what you see Now you can have fun with it You can either leave it as is or do fun things with it like draw a grid of lines across it with various white to transparent gradients on it in order to give it the effect of being pixelized Or you can draw only one set of lines across it on an X or just a Y axis Or you can make it more photo realistic by drawing lines with gradients on them of course across the object such as the veins on a leaf Consider adding shapes beside this new icon you have drawn to go with the letters And apply gradients on the shapes If you still want to draw something interesting such as

  • Experiencing Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 (step by step with screenshots)
    system type though if you create empty partitions of those types in a previous step and don t choose to reformat them here 6 Summary Step six requires you to do nothing but read the summary of settings you have chosen in previous five steps and choose whether to accept these settings and go with the install or go back and make modifications And then it goes on with the install Installation is definitely not the fastest around and I believe this one took more time than the previous versions of Ubuntu but this is probably something we can let through considering the big improvements to the installation interface and the user friendliness of the whole process One thing that was apparently sacrificed for that goal is the bootloader setup which is missing in this installer The installation will simply install GRUB with the default set of Ubuntu boot options I have an Arch GNU Linux on my other partitions and it didn t even detect that In this regard it is actually a step back from previous releases where other GNU Linux distributions as well as operating systems such as Windows were properly detected and added to the bootloader Now there is not even an option to add them yourself short of editing the GRUB configuration manually after installation Once installation is complete you are presented with a dialog that allows you to reboot or choose to continue using the livecd This nicely adds up to the double purpose of this CD All things considered this is definitely one of the most user friendly installations in the GNU Linux world so far even though it sacrifices a few options to provide that experience from the missing bootloader configuration as described above to the lack of ability to custom select packages for installation It however clearly shows that Ubuntu is aimed at new desktop GNU Linux users coming from Windows or Mac OS X and expecting everything to be easy and smooth without asking too many questions and requiring too much to do Installing Ubuntu is thus probably easier than installing Windows XP at least if you choose not to customize the partition table There is no doubt anymore that when it comes to installing GNU Linux it not only measures up to Windows but beats it too UBUNTU RE LOADED As expected the first boot up of the new Ubuntu system went quite well While it is not as fast as with some GNU Linux distros most users to whom Ubuntu is targeted probably wont mind and it is definitely not slower than the Windows XP boot so former Windows users probably wont miss much in this regard The boot screen is nice looking and boot messages were made friendlier than the flying console text would be After the boot we are presented with the great looking GDM GNOME Desktop Manager screen asking to enter username and then password upon which the Ubuntu desktop starts loading with the golden looking splash Few moments later we see an Ubuntu desktop and can start playing with it APPLICATIONS One of the greatest strengths of Ubuntu was always its applications selection Instead of offering quantity it opts for offering a quality choice for every basic task a desktop user may want to do with his computer Menus are logically divided into accessories games graphics internet office and sound video Some of the notable applications included are GIMP image editor gThumb image viewer Ekiga Softphone VoIP IP Telephony and Videoconferencing application Totem movie player Rythmbox music player Serpentine audio CD creator SoundJuicer CD ripper and of course Evolution email client GAIM IM client latest Firefox web browser and the whole OpenOffice org suite Menus however don t reveal the whole offering but there is an Alacarte Menu Editor in accessories which allows you to easily add remove or move your menu items Menus and menu items that are available but aren t currently active are marked with a smaller font as shown on the screenshot below where bittorrent is also available but hidden All it takes to activate a menu item is to check a tick box next to it The file menu of the Alacarte Menu Editor allows you to add a new menu or a new menu entry All applications seem to be set up to work out of the box However the Ekiga Softphone does experience some problems as shown below Users that have expected this to work out of the box may find it a bit discomforting Configuring Ubuntu should be fairly easy as pretty much all possible configuration options have their own special dedicated programs One example of this is the separation of the screensaver settings and the power management settings in two independent configuration programs As someone who has used quite a few GNU Linux distributions so far I can t not to notice the lack of certain options for the apparent purpose of making it more easy to use Hence the screensaver preferences program actually misses the test button that would allow the user to test the screensaver in addition to having a preview of it in a small window How does this makes it easier to set up screensavers escapes me though but as you ll see later on this is not an unique example of the phenomenon known as dumbing down that Ubuntu apparently seems to employ INSTALLING NEW SOFTWARE Even if you don t find the included software set satisfactory and sooner or later most people would indeed want more you simply don t have anything to worry about Provided that you have an internet connection a whole world of Free Software is at your fingertips The Add Remove menu item of the applications menu opens the doors for you by launching a program that allows you to surf through a nice selection of available programs that you can install from Ubuntu internet repositories It is actually a front end to synaptic which

  • GNU/Linux vs. Mac: Why Apple will not dominate?
    if you want a Mac experience you will have to pay the full price of not only the operating system but the computer on which it will run as well at the same time You can t just get Mac OS X and run it on your existing machines The price that this often bears is too high for many to pay especially considering the alternatives Now consider GNU Linux It is the total opposite of Mac OS X in this regard While Mac OS X will run only on Apple machines GNU Linux runs pretty much on everything it touches While Mac OS X is necessarily expensive GNU Linux can very well be obtained for free While Mac OS X is a proprietary operating system completely controlled by one company GNU Linux is a free as in freedom and often price operating system developed and contributed to by a vast international networked community which actually includes a multitude of corporations Where Apple is essentially a fortress GNU Linux is an ocean It flows through everything and is available to anyone So when we consider this who has a better chance of winning over the desktop market if we assume that Windows is on the way out Is it more likely that the majority of people will pay the price for the Apple experience or just get GNU Linux for free Before answering that consider the accelerating evolution of quality of GNU Linux which may very well at some point exceed the quality of Mac OS X GNU Linux probably already has more brainpower behind its development than Apple and this number is increasing with its adoption How long will it take before Apple and for that matter any other proprietary software company just couldn t compete with the kind of innovation and evolution that this open community can provide for In fact there is a bit of irony in all this The reason because Mac OS X just works flawlessly on Macs is because Apple didn t have to worry about making their OS work on multiple kinds of computer configurations They produce a computer and the OS to run on it themselves I don t believe there is anything quite that mysterious about Mac OS X working so well It was simply an easier job to do when they focus on only one platform their own But what if GNU Linux achieves the same kind of flawless usability without relegating itself to one platform GNU Linux is very modular and flexible It had to be that way as an OS that was developed over the network essentially lived on the internet While Mac OS X fits perfectly to the Apple computers GNU Linux in a way fits perfectly to the network and network implies all kinds of computers and digital devices you can think of Imagine an operating system that seamlessly and intelligently morphs to adapt to any architecture any computer configuration and any digital device that is
