Re: Can put this wallpaper in the .iso of crunchbang?

It's nice, whowne. I don't think there are any wallpaper photos in the .iso -- I think you have to add them manually (not hard to do). I don't want to speak for corenominal, but I think that's by design.

It wouldn’t be bad if Crunchbang had a couple of beautiful, distinctive looking wallpapers in the default install…

Re: Can put this wallpaper in the .iso of crunchbang?

It wouldn't be bad, whereisthetea, and I don't speak for CrunchBang or corenominal (or anyone other than me, for that matter), but I think that adding desktops to the mix would make the install significantly larger and cumbersome. One of the beauties of CrunchBang is that you can make Openbox look however you want. Add to that some very artistic folks in the community that contribute excellent wallpaper art, and it's pretty much the best of both worlds -- no bloat and great wallpapers that are available on the forum.

Re: Can put this wallpaper in the .iso of crunchbang?

I agree on the no bloat and diy system philosophy. What I rather had in mind was having a couple of wallpapers (and when I said “a couple” I actually meant that) for, how to express it, public relations. For them to appear on ’em distrowatches and distro-hopper’s blog screenshots.

...That's what I had in mind when I wrote the previous post...

And then I realized that a gray background is even more distinctive than the brown wallpapers of the Ubuntu of old days.

Truly, the wisdom of the Wise One is limitless and we perceive briefly but the reflected light of it in the muddy water of our desktop managers covered by the fallen leaves of our config files.

Linux Mint comes with a wallpaper just like this. Edit: I'm presenting that in a critical sense.

Re: Can put this wallpaper in the .iso of crunchbang?

So noted, dura. Linux Mint also comes with a desktop environment, not a window manager. Again, I think that having no desktop art and allow the user to choose from a wide variety of desktop photos, whether from our users in the forum or elsewhere, is a better way to go.

This is not to take anything away from whowne's excellent photo, or anyone else's work. In fact, my desktop photo is a photo of Mount Shasta that rstrcogburn posted in the Artwork section last month (or two months ago).

Re: Can put this wallpaper in the .iso of crunchbang?

Aren't there wallpapers in the ISO that get installed to /usr/share/backgrounds, which is in turn linked to ~/images/wallpaper in every user's home directory?

Re: Can put this wallpaper in the .iso of crunchbang?

I think it would be be kinda neat to take a selection of community derived wallpapers and make a package from them. Something like:

sudo aptitude install crunchbang-community-wallpapers

I would be more than willing to package it up. and make a .deb  I just need 5-15 original pieces of art that will be distributed creative commons.

^ That's a nice offer Nathan. I have my own, extensive to say the least, collection of wallpapers, but I'm sure some people would find this useful.
