Looking for a new wallpaper

Hi,

If anyone has a suggestion for a new wallpaper for ArchBang please let me know.

Am thinking of going with one of our old branded versions....

Re: Looking for a new wallpaper

You could perhaps just use an arch-logo, with a gradient background, where users can easily change the gradient.
And then perhaps a download script, which fetches thumbnails from a wallpaper site, displays them with simple numerical file-names in a folder (which the script opens with $file-manager), and then the user can pick a number to download into ~/wallpapers ...
It's the Unix way ^^

Very good, something along those lines would be good. Maybe

"Arch + openbox = ^!"

Maybe something like this?

PS: the background is "labeled for reuse with modification".
PS 2: I'm not familiar with gimp, but thought this might give someone who knows how to use it some ideas.

Edit: This wallpaper is based on Hexagonal Grid Wallpaper v0.1 by Adoomer (adoomer.deviantart.com)

Re: Looking for a new wallpaper

Maybe you can use a different texture as the background for V!.
I found this image originally created by Darkwood67 on DeviantArt.
This is just a quick thought, that might just give you an idea... License for the original image is here: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

Re: Looking for a new wallpaper

Just a clarification, the licenses come with the original images I used for the background, and (I  think) I'm obligated to reproduce. I don't have have any experience with this big_smile .
As far as I'm concerned, everyone can use the two wallpapers I created without any obligation.
