Where can this pangolin be downloaded from in SVG or ODG format?

Edit: I've found a larger PNG file, but still no vector image.

Obviously you were not alone asking the question: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-branding/+bug/890497

Btw, just googled for "ubuntu pangolin format:svg". Your question show up first but the answer is right after :-\"

Thanks! Also, thanks for the tip on converting using Inkscape using path trace.

You are welcome .....

Inkscape is great and I like using Xara Xtreme too ....

But this can crash a lot .... so I am at present taking screen shots of what I do using it ... then do the path trace .....

The traced svg can also be used in Blender the 3D modeling tool ..... then saved as 3ds and pulled into Wings3D too ......

__________________________________________________

Seems bizarre I know ..... but am not able to read svg files into Xara Xtreme

and

Same with the Xara files .... not sure how to read these into anything else ...... or if they can
be used in anything else without doing a screenshot and then a pathtrace

Its worth looking at though if you like doing graphics .....

Hope some of this information above comes in useful for someone else as its not always straightforward finding all the different import and export routes for svg's

But they are very useful ...... :D
