    Wow. I'm sorry you feel that way.

    So let's see... would you prefer ZOMGAWESOME or DONOTWANT or LOLCATZ?

    No, in Karmic.

    It only lists the two, where the USB only works fine.

    [all variants] Re: Wacom tablets in Ubuntu guide/howto

    Only the Jaunty works here. The "new-generic" lists only my eraser and stylus. Jaunty version for USB works as expected. Intuos 3 USB 6x11.
  5. [ubuntu] Wacom / Dual Head Xinerma / Scaling Issue

    I'm sure I'm missing something simple here, but with dual head Xinerama mode activated, I can't get GIMP nor Inkscape to properly identify my xsetwacom settings.

  6. Re: Obama logo and your art.

    Bear in mind that the original (top left of the montage) and its successor (down and left in the montage) were designed as part of this set.

  7. Thread: Company Logo

    Re: Company Logo

    Depends on how serious you wish to be about your work. If you are serious, I would strongly recommend a solid book such as the Logo Design Workbook referenced near the end of this post.

  13. Thread: I'm amazed.

    Re: I'm amazed.

    Unfortunately, that information is stale.

    That applied to the 16 colour version of usplash. Since then, it has evolved somewhat since then. As of 6.10, usplash includes 256 colour 8 bit support....
  14. Re: Members of the community that provide alternate art work

    Generally, mixing and matching bits results in a sub optimal approach -- although Lizardking managed to do this quite successfully with OranSun.

    There are a few extra 'whole' themes in the...
  15. Thread: Rotorscope

    by Aphorism

    Re: Rotorscope

    The defacto compositor in Free Software is Blender currently.
    Rotoscoping is generally referred to when something cannot be keyed. If you require keying, GIMP GAP has a plugin, as does Blender.

    I would prefer to compile it from scratch.

    lprofi's trick worked right up to the point of running the app -- at which point the SUV theme is not found and it bombs.

    Same here. Any progress on this Gearshifter?
