Post LinuxForum

Wheeew… it was two great days. I meet Morten from debianguiden.dk which I had been looking forward.

Peter Toft introduced me to Jacob Nordfalk who have written a few Java books. He was interested in helping out with FriFinans and he clarified a few things for me and commented on the code.

Overall today was just a relaxing day with my girlfriend whom I have neglected the last couple of days.

Late again... I'll never learn

I had a friend over today and we talked about a welcome splash for a danish OpenOffice.org CD-rom (for Windows). I have made a sketch of my thoughts and my friend will try realize it in Flash (hopefully this week so we can have it ready for LinuxForum 2004).

Instead of starting the OpenOffice.org installer (which can take forever on slow machines and it is not always the action people want) we want a little splash screen to popup when Autorun is activated. Basicly you have 2 options:

  1. Install danish OpenOffice.org (emphasized)
  2. Browse CD for extra material

The splash should contain a link to the danish homepage and som graphics from OpenOffice marketing

Debian DVD cover making progress...

Well I better go to bed now… just had to see 24 Hours with Jack Bauer :) But before I give my computer a rest I’ll post my latest work on my Debian DVD cover. PNG format for preview. SVG format

I’m beginning to learn how this SVG shit works… sadly the tools for Linux are limited (as far as I know). Half the time I have to use a text editor to edit the SVG image. Both because some things aren’t supported and because the the output from the tools are far from optimized.

Long lost ehhhhh.... fun?

I have been looking for this little fun movie for a long time now. Wanted to show my girlfriend it :) The terrible reality of true life… “Alien Song

It can be downloaded at Navone

SVG bitching -> Weblog time

After hours of bitching over bad free SVG tools for Linux (talking about Sodipodi and Inkscape), I decided that it was time to find myself a weblog. And here it is freshly installed on my Debian server.

I think I will get back to my SVG production trying to make a DVD cover for Debian Sarge. The things I think is bad about Sodipodi and Inkscape is the lack of support for filters. Filters makes it possible to add good looking shadows, glows and stuff like that and Sodipodi and Inkscape dosn’t even display them.

To display filters I use batik (squiggle) which works okay.

Yesterday I also found a few good links for thoose who want to use to learn SVG:
