gnomecc color scheme – my favourite.

my favourite gtkrc-2 file.

Snapshot of how it looks.


Periodically download and use as wallpaper from Flickr in Fedora using Webilder.

Ever wanted to have wallpaper downloaded from Flickr directly using the tags and then apply them as wallpaper, then the way to go is download Webilder here. Just do the regular stuff to install the same.

tar xvfz <filename>

cd <to the directory created>



sudo make install

And then right click on the gnome panel and add the widget. Configure the tags to download and the duration to change the wallpaper and enjoy.

F12 Wallpaper Sprinting

I’ve been working with Jon McCann, Charlie Brej, Nicu Buculei, Jeremy Perry, María Leandro, and Ian Weller’s help and critique the past few days on trying to come up with a slicker version of the F12 background for the final. 1 newly color-managed Thinkpad, 4 Gimp brushes, several CC-BY and CC-BY-SA textures from Flickr, 2 dozen SLR photos of shower water, and 62 mockups later… this is what we have so far. Please let me know what you think. We are working to get it packaged by this coming Tuesday so we can make it, and be awesome while we’re at it. If you have any suggestions or modifications you’d like to propose please reply here or on design-team at lists dot fedoraproject dot org.


The GIMP XCF source is available: 62.xcf.gz.
