View Full Version : Gegl???

Was just editing my panels on a new user when i did a strange combination of buttons + mouse key presses and this, er, thing popped up.

Why is there a cow with an extra arm in the panel properties? Have i found some sort of "Secret"? :confused:

Probably the worst mascot/logo of all the Free Software projects.

Here is a full-color version:

This is a LOGO!? Was the person who designed it on LSD or some other drug when they made it? :lolflag:

I don't think this is the worst logo of all the Free Software projects.

I think it's the Worst Logo, EVER! :)

It's not the actual logo, just a humorous mascot. The official logo of the GNU is:


GEGL, the mascot, stands for Genetically Engineered Goat, Large.

I never knew you could get gegl into your panel properties too. But if you press Alt-F2 and run 'gegls from outer space' you'll get a hidden Space Invaders-style game where you shoot those strange mutant cows ;)

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one to notice crap like that! I saw that and wondered if I had just completely lost my mind. Seems all you have to do is right-click on the edge of the 'invisible' tab. Problem is finding the right spot.
