Art wiki content requests

Recommended Posts

What would you like to see added to the art wiki? Any icon themes you use, but got from another source, wallpapers that fit a theme like a glove, Enlightenment themes not in our repo (if they exist)...

 

Please let us know here so we can get those added.

23_0z E17 theme! We have the GTK one, why don't add the E17?

original sources recompiled by me: http://e17-stuff.org/content/show.php/23+ounces+of+Glass+AKA+23_oz?content=147503

Or Zerg, Elive theme, MoonOS theme... and there are many themes to recompile that aren't in E17 repo! :)

Isn't it preferred that E themes have some sort of Bodhi branding on them before being added?

Lost, you have access to do so, if the themes/icons/etc are under the right license feel free to add.

 

As for themes, yes I think it would be nice if the "About" thingy was styled with the Bodhi logo and such (I don't know how much is theme based here), but I suppose we could always make a todo list and list the themes that have to be "logofied™", so that it's at least already available for everyone.

Branding a theme could be a "bottle-neck" for the adding of a E themes, so IMHO we could release it avaible with original sources and themers like me, Lost, Agust, Micah or whoever wants could try to add brands or improve the themes.

Is it an idea to add the Desktop of the year 2011 winning desktop there? With a description how to make it your own. A little "How to make your own desktop of the year" manual. Get the wallpaper, install E-theme, GTK-theme, icons, shelves, conky etc.

Also for DotW!!

I don't see why not, except that its up to the people that made the DotW/Y, so you're expecting a lot from them... I doubt they all feel like/have the time to write such a thing for every post they make.

I agree. But maybe for just one very special Desktop we can make an exception?? And ask very nice of course @Charles? Please?

Long time since, but I'll see if I can refresh my memories and come up with something.

 

Charles.

Great! You truly have a "Bodhi" heart! :D

It will make me happy and probably a lot of other Bodhi users too.

Thanks for the +one.

 

Well, I dived in the past and came up with something. I wrote it down in this textfile and hope you mods can wikify it.

 

Let me know if it's to long. I inserted a place for a link, the url is in the bottom part of the file.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Since no one offered, I'll create that wiki page in the morning and figure our a place for it. As for the possible and already made requests. Is anyone interested in taking this on? I am kinda swamped with webdev stuff and I'd like to appoint someone to handle this kind of thing.

 

So, if you're interested in maintaining the Art wiki and adding stuff there, reply and I'll make sure you've got access to do so... I think this might also involve creating debs for the packages server. I'll discuss this with our packagers and see whats what on that front. I'll let you all know when I know.

 

Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help out.

I feel a bit guilty that I didn't offer mey help since I brought this up. It is not so much much a question if I want to do this (YES) but more a question of have I the time to do this (NO). But I'm always willing to offer my help. But don't expect too much hours because I simply don't have them (and I'm using all of my timing skills). But maybe I can help on work that doesn't have any time restrictions?

I know what its like... I didn't have the time yet to make that wiki page... But I am looking for someone to add the new wiki content when requests come and deb those items. I think this is a very time consuming process as the items will have to be collected, debed, mailed over to someone who can upload to the server, wiki page made, link to deb inserted into the wiki page... etc. Like I said - time consuming.

 

If you wanna help out, Dick, feel free to create that wiki page on how Charles made the winning desktop... I'm not sure whether it should be on the wiki or the Art wiki, but I am leaning towards Art. The creating of this page is on my todo list, but I don't mind if you or anyone else created it. :)

I could try this. Finding .deb and making wiki with screenshots should not by hard.

Already saw some pretty good icon themes.

For rest, and by that I mean .deb making I will need some instructions.

 

Also there could by created temporal section in artwiki, which would have external links, then the one to which it must by mailed could see it, and then he would upload them to our storage, then packager would not by disturbed on demand, but he could check him self at some times. Of course he still should inform that he uploaded files and where.

We're not putting links to outside sites on the wiki.

 

Requests for content can be made on the forum, in this thread. If you're willing to take this on, you can keep updated here. We could add a link to this thread on the art wiki as well.

 

As for instructions on packaging, I'll make sure you'll get those.

I've always felt that there are just a few icon themes (I like to have a lot of choices), so I think this is a great idea so we can have even more power of configuration. Thank you aeonius.

 

If I find something worth mention I'll write it here.

I agree on the icons, we could use more. And please share any content you think we could use on the art wiki, always good to get more options.
