Believe it or not, you can make beautiful wallpaper…… FROM
6. Select Filters>Artistic>Cubism. Set the the cube size high; same with the saturation.
7. Marvel at your work. Save this point. If you like it as is, go to step nine. If you’d like to change it a bit, we’re not done…
*Scribbling is the key to getting this right.
*Some of the presets might not go well with the result of step 6. Ctrl-Z (yes, Ctrl even on a Mac) to undo step 8 and continue to step 9.
Edubuntu, the Ubuntu version aimed at educational institutions and students, is a great choice for a distro if you work at a school or are a student yourself. It features a whole set of educational applications which include making graphs (perfect for Algebra), studying angles and shapes (geometry), practicing vocabulary (in both English and Foreign Languages), notating music, and much more! It also comes with the standard Ubuntu software, such as OpenOffice.org, the same games, etc. Overall, it’s a nice little distro, and the standard wallpaper is nicer than the regular Ubuntu wallpaper.
The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a nifty little cross-platform tool. It’s as good as Photoshop, but free (in both senses). A nice little feature of GIMP are the filters. Using the filters, you can turn some simple scribbles into aesthetically-pleasing desktop wallpaper. The “clone” feature is also really nice to remove unwanted parts of a picture.
I recently did a little review on Gutsy Gibbon Tribe 1; there wasn’t much too it. Now, this isn’t really a review on Tribe 3, but more of a feature overview, including those not mentioned in the official list.
Now, I’m downloading Tribe 3. According to the Ubuntu website(NOTE: THIS LINK WILL GO OUT OF DATE IN OCTOBER), all the appearance options are in one window now, like in Windows. It’s pictured here.
