I'd like to take a stab at SVG since it seems to be the way things are moving. What software do I use to create these?

Inkscape (http://www.inkscape.org/)

It's availible in main, so you can just apt-get it.

another is sodipodi but I like inkscape a lot more (graphics n00b speaking)....I guess it just feels better? I don't know why, I just do.

Can sodipodi do drop shadows?


Yeah... and here's my first try at it.

1. did you create that....from nothing?
2. how long did that take you?

About 10 minutes.

Hmm...

travis@Eniac:~ $ sudo apt-get install inkskape
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package inkskape

Searching with synaptic comes up with nothing as well.

Perhaps you would like to make graphics/icons for Ubuntu? :-D

Yeah, that's actually the reason I am starting. I need to get a little more practice though. Any ideas for what icons are needed?

*blink*

How the flippidy flop did I spell that incorrectly repeatedly? *L*

I KNEW how to spell it, I just kept doing it wrong. Ah well, we're all idiots sometimes.
