This is my first post to the list! I've been working with Jorn Lomax
part of the Google Summer of Code project the Fedora audio spin. I
believe Jorn introduced himself here .
Hi and welcome!
We've come a long way now and have decided on using KDE as the
system for the Fedora Jam audio spin.
Good choice! As a KDE SIG member and author of KDM/KSplash themes I
can help you with implementation issues - take a look on kde-settings,
We are probably going to use a darker KDE theme by default (such as
Oxygen or Caledonia) and are desperately in need of some KDE splash
wallpaper ideas that will fit with this.
What we do now is that we just set default wallpaper for every KDM/
KSplash release. There was time when I was playing with it but it's
really time consuming. Especially with all theming support - it was
hard to achieve nice results.
But there's new possibility of interactive QML based KSplash I'd like
Whilst we don't have any firm suggestions in mind it would be
we could somehow create a theme which can somehow encompass more than
few of the many aspects surrounding music and audio production -
classical, modern, electronic, live, recording etc. Some have
and elegant collage of instruments and/or recording gear, but we are
really very open for all kinds of ideas . It may not even need to
relate to audio at all but just look really cool and modern! I think
this is a really creative opportunity here if any is interested!.
We have created a placeholder package (fedora-jam-backgrounds)
which contains a simple audio waveform on a black background, which
be replaced .
Once a spin is approved via the Spins wrangler what is the submission
process so far as the design team is concerned?
Just follow the Fedora schedules to deliver packages in time for Fedora
thanks for your help!
