10 years ago

1.1 Added a Slackware ball. Oldest linux distribution deserves a place in this wallpaper :D

1.2 Blue version is now available in 2 different widescreen resolutions. I have resized some parts and don't really know if it has lost some quality, my screen is 4:3 and I don't appreciate it very well, so comments will be welcome :D

1.3 Fixed reflection issue. Better quality and higher resolutions available.

Hi, I see you still don't fixed that transparency issue.

Well, you can put all these balls in a .zip file and upload it on mediafire.com (or any file hoster)

Then , I'll take care of it! ;)

I want have balls separatly, either as many png files, or an xcf file(your gimp source file).

I could send you many png files with the balls. The gimp source xcf has in the same layer all the balls together, so they can't be apart.

KDE
GNOME
XFCE

Those ain't distributions, those are Desktop Environments. KDE and GNOME are at least working on other operating systems than Linux too, like FreeBSD and OpenBSD. I'm not sure about XFCE but I think it is working too.

This is great wallpaper because it just reminds that we all are using same operating system (linux) but we have hundreds of "flavors" (distributions) where to choose what kind system we want to have when we use Linux :D

I see the reflect effect is applied individually instead of globally.

What it does?

Look on the "Floor".
We can see the balls who are supposed to be "behind" by a transparency effect.

Hi,
I've been already told about that. You're right, reflection should be applied globally. I didn't realized it when making the wallpaper and now it's hard to solve because I don't have all the source files needed, but I'll try to do it.

Thanks for your advice!!! :D

YOU MEAN YOU DON'T kEEPT THE .XCF FILE?

If there is one thing every graphist must know, it's to ALWAYS keep the source file. ALWAYS

well, I'm not a graphist, but of course I have the main xcf file. I just needed some pics I didn't save as .xcf filetype(yes, big mistake). Now I got them again and I'm working on the reflection issue, hope it will be solved soon. Higher resolution versions are incoming too.
