    How to get back the controversial artwork ?

    I don't want to start a debate on how appropriate or not the old controversial artwork was but.... how do I get it back ?

    It's in a package called I think Ubuntu Monthly Calendar or something like that, open up Synaptic and run a quick search for calendar, you'll find it, then just select it as your background after it finishes installing.

    There are some people on the background image that show some skin. Not nudes, but a naked chest, arms around shoulders, etc.

    It is a peace of art, but disregards the fact that in many parts of the world it is seen as (very) inappropriate to show semi-nudes in public.

    Obviously, for a linux distribution, it is unwise to include artwork that could offend people.
    If this is life, I think I'll live another day

    It's not really that it is "offensive" for most people but more that they would never dare install it in the workplace (and with all the lawsuit problems we are seeing these years, I tend to agree with them). However, I liked the picture which really had the right ubuntu feeling and would like to have it at home.

    Look for this package in synaptic : ubuntu-calendar - The Ubuntu Calendar features monthly updated artwork and themes
    Install it
    Computer -> System Configuration -> Login Screen Setup
    Click on the graphical greeter tab
    The "controversial" GDM should be in the list
    Select it and save.

    Same for the background

    The Ubuntu-calendar update for November is probably the most risque yet. Are they going to keep getting more controversial? Honestly, it doesn't bother me, I think it makes sense for the distro. Human togetherness and all that

    kamstrup: if you think the avatar is funny, you should check out Steve Oedekerk's movies. ThumbWars, Thumbtanic, Batthumb, Frankenthumb, the Blair Thumb, GodThumb... He's the guy responsible for the (sub-par, in my opinion) Ace Ventura movies. He made Kung-Pow a few years back, a very funny kung-fu movie parody, and one menu entry on the dvd was "The Panicked Thumb" and it took a shot from Thumb Wars (where my avatar came from) where this thumb just runs across the screen yelling "We've been hit!" Hilarious stuff.

    xsos: yes, they are very artistic. There's no prurient intentions at all with these pics, it's all about the art and the humanity in Ubuntu.
