Poster-print-quality slackware penguin


Hi

I've been a Slackware user from the start and recently moved to using Mint on my workstations but I think I'll be a Slackware guy at heart forever.

I would like to have a glass wall sticker printed for my office, which has a glass wall, to look like this: http://www.slackware.com/~msimons/sl...enguinlogo.jpg

But it needs a transparrent background and it needs to be in a vector format (SVG or AI) so that the massive high resolution print looks good.

The planned result is a sticker 1.2 meters by 60 cm or so.

Does anyone know where I can find such a file? I don't even know who I could contact to ask.

Talking

"reconstructing" slackware's smoking tux should be easily done just by pasting bob's pipe onto a tux svg(1). a vectorized tux is quite easy to find, finding a vectorized bob is not as trivial as that...

you could google for a rather large portrait of bob (in order to start with a decent resolution). a strategy for creating a higher quality svg out of a jpeg would probably consist in cutting the pipe, enlarging it by a little, diffusing, enlarging it, diffusing, enlarging, etc. etc.

---
(1) the pipe should be slightly rotated

check here:

http://slackware-linux-graphics.blogspot.fi/

there are penguins

Edit: I guess, what you are looking for is in in these subfolders:

./Slackware.Linux.Graphics/Slackware.Linux.Classic.Tux
./Slackware.Linux.Graphics/Slackware.Linux.Crystallized.Tux

there are SVGs

I did remake some Slackware logos 2 years ago: http://ngc891.blogdns.net/?p=74
It's PNG but I provide the XCF source files too.

Oh man, I'm in love with this one, the one with the slackware belly Any chance you have the vector sources for the layers?

I can scale it in gimp to something large enough to print at this size, but I end up with ladders around the high contrast edges.

The graphic is so cool I'd probably use it as is anyway, but any chance you have the originals? I probably have enough skills to reassemble it myself.

I don't have the originals, I though the XCF files were enough. But it shouldn't be too difficult to find them.

I did add metadata to the files, but I just realized it doesn't show up with identify, gimp or geeqie. You can print them using:

Code:
$ strings slackware2.png |head -11|tail -5

The penguin is universally known in the linux world, should be very easy to find the format you like. I found the pipe on http://opencliparts.org/. Since 2011, there are new models of pipe you could try.

I did a SlackE17 logo too, that I used for the E17 slackware theme. You can fin it here:
http://ngc891.blogdns.net/pub/projec...7/slacke17.png or in the SlackE17 git source tree.

Smoke

Congratulations! Looks Good!

Quote:
Because this was printed on a white background (the printer either couldnít or didnít want to print on a transparent background) I had to chop off the smoke and the shadow underneath, it didnít look good over glass.
Some would argue that smoke should NOT be coming out of the pipe and your representation is the correct one. Bob's pipe wasn't lit.
