Where to find slack14.0.2012 Mayan Calender Logo?


I'd like to make a new desktop theme for my dwm desktop and xdm login screen based on the new Mayan calendar themed slackware 14.0.2012 logo

Please, does anyone know where I can find a nice high-res version of the new 14.0.2012 Mayan calender slackware logo suitable for a desktop wallpaper? 1024x768 or better would be nice. An svg would be ever better as it would allow me to fine tune the sizes.

engaget seem to have a small sized .jpg of it at http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget....e-linux-14.jpg, or I could crop the small one out of the lilo bmp files myself, but that wouldn't be ideal for the quality.


The only ones I can find on the system with 'locate' are on the lilo bmp files.


update:

Actually, because of the 'distressed' look, cutting the image from the lilo screen doesn't make that bad a result, but It'd still be nice to work from a better source.

I created the lilo bitmap from an example picture of the t-shirt (somewhat larger than you find in the Store). I do not have the original bitmap either.
The wrinkles in the t-shirt are still somewhat visible as the blue-ish stains in the lilo bitmap... perhaps that is what you call tthe "distressed" look?

Thanks Eric. I didn't realise you'd pulled it directly from the t-shirt images.

I did noticed the blue stuff when I was playing around with the colour balance. Wondered what was causing that.

By 'distressed' I meant the 'aged' look on the lettering and iconographs itself, which tend to mask any resizing artefacts.
Not to worry, I'm sure I can make something workable out of what I have.

Update:

I've attached one that I've cleaned up and made into a 1024x768 wallpaper (looks good centred on a 1920x1080 widescreen too).
I cropped it from the lilo bmp files, used gimp to remove the t-shirt fold shadows, resized and centred the image on a 1024x768 canvas.
and also adjusted the colours a little to remove some of the garishness from the gold.

If anyone wants the cleaned-up crop in gimp..xcf format drop me a PM and we'll sort something out.

Wait a sec, theres a mayan themed lilo splash? Do we have to do a full 14.0 reinstall to get that? My 13.37->current->14.0 boxen don't seem to have it..

No, it's only available in T-Shirts, but some people are creative enough to make a wallpaper from it

Here is the file I created, and which I re-used to create that second bitmap: ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/s...k14.0.2012.bmp
It is installed as part of the lilo package. You do have it on your computer already, as "/usr/doc/lilo-23.2/sample/slack14.0.2012.bmp".

Another unexpected treasure. Just replaced it in my lilo.conf and rebooted. Looks great!

Thanks for the hint.

(Eric: as soon as I've upgraded my "Microlinux Enterprise Desktop" and my "Microlinux Enterprise Server" from 13.37 to 14.0, I'll switch from read-only to fully available on SlackDocs.org. I really want to base all my installs for new clients on 14.0 rather than 13.37. ETA about ten days to a couple of weeks.)

Had a play this afternoon and made myself a rotating animated gif from it.

Couldn't get it much smaller without either making it too jerky or too small to see.
