now that's some nice looking chalk! it's kind of like that soft chalk kids use to draw on the ground. teacher's chalk is usually a little harder and so it gives more of a dusty effect. but I just love this look. this should be a good candidate for the next edubuntu-artwork package. keep it up!

Im slapping this sucker into one of my favorite GDM templates. really great work!

nice update. I really love this desktop for my school ubuntu-box.

for myself since I am using the default setting, which has the panels at the top and bottom cropping parts of the picture, I scaled the image down to 1156 pixels then scaled the canvas back to 1200, creating a 22px padding at the top and bottom.

a quick and dirty hack that may not look as good for everybody, but the effect looks better IMHO as the frame borders are about the same all the way around, since the panel doesnt cover so much of it.

another thing, im using a crt monitor and the new chalk effect looks almost "furry" like a felt material.

Thanks for your comments, I too wondered about how the frame would work on other people's desktops but I'm glad to hear with a little tweaking it looks ok :)

You are right about the chalk too, it's not quite there yet. I'll have a another play around and see what I get :)
