Subject description: for a Chuckle Pup (?) background
 

Hello all.

As the title says.

This is a call for a background for a "never-seen-before" Puppy.

The concept is this:

Our poor Puppy has been suffering for the last 15 years from all sorts of
transformations, woofing-CE, trimming, fattening, remastering of all sorts.
He or she (do we really know?) has been forced to live in the company of
strangers: Ubuntus, T2s, Debians, even Archs and what-have-you for
awhile.

And now Core's and Slitaz's? Wheeee! Laughing

Following up on sort-of-a-request by a fellow member, I am working on a
minimal Puppy, but not a to-the-bone Puppy. The default WM will be
snapwm (yan-han-han; see attached). There will be almost no music
player, almost no editor, etc.,just enough to give you doggone Puppyists
(from the point of view of our poor abused Puppy) a lot of trouble
rebuilding a Puppy to your liking. Enough said.

When I was a kid, I had a dog who had a skinny -- and strong -- tail. When
she was happy she would wag her tail, of course, and anything in the way
would be swept away or broken. E.g. mom's coffee, dad's Ginger Ale, my
lemonade...

Her dad was a rather big-sized bulldog, and her mom was a mix of a
sausage dog (dachund) and a greyhound (short legs and long nose...).
"Noirette", the result, was a regular-sized dog, who could outrun a car at
30 mph without panting, kill a rat by snapping its neck, howl without end at
crows landing in the yard in the Spring, ferociously dig out the neighbor's
lilac tree, and when her day was done, devour the meal in her bowl, roll
up and sleep like a baby on her favorite cushion.

Was it predestination Wink , she was dressed a bit like Tux: all black, except
for a white ascot, and white "shoes and gloves".

So the concept of the background would be to convey some kind of
revenge:"look what you made me do, you doggone Puppyists", not to the
point of biting and rabies, however, but with a malicious chuckle and a
wink in her eye.

Not sure about the title: Chuckle Puppy? Revenge Puppy? Surely this group
has language buffs who can suggest a concept between "laughing at you"
and "getting back at you"?

So I declare this picture contest now officially open: the likes of futwerk
and nilsonmorales, anyone with graphic talent: welcome!

Please post your masterpieces below. Laughing

The winner will get no cash prize, I'm afraid. (Exception would be if I win
the Lotto!) Only "eternal" recognition and credit. Plus the exposure, the
Oooh's and the Aaaah's on this thread!!!

Hi Sailor,

Not quite! Her ears were higher on her head and falling in "V" fashion. Her
white ascot was larger, too.

Her mom was a mix of daschund and greyhound, not her. She had a regular
head and jaw. Standing on all fours, she was as high as my knee. She had
somewhat of the rib cage and of the cheeks of her dad. (A bit like our
Canadian Prime Minister Diefenbaker! [ in the 1960's])

She looked neat and clever, not stupid like the mutt in your photo! Laughing

Bye.

Don't forget: you would need that for leaving the country, no? Wink Laughing

Hi Darry.

You're not doing too bad yourself in that department with your "bare" racy-5.5 & Co.! Smile

It is possible to make an operating system with no default wallpaper
to save space. I proved this concept. All that is required is mtpaint
and software that will make /usr/share/backgrounds/default.jpg
the background when X is launched.

I am still using this script in fatdogarm.

@don570: Thanks, I'll have a look at your script.

Later in the day:
I did try it, but I can't say I'm crazy about it. Obviously I don't master the
parameters, but the mtpaint "formula" is awfully fussy about the format of
fonts. It won't accept the beautiful AkizaSans font, for example, which
seems pretty standard to me. Also, can we have non-neon colors?

Maybe someone with good command of the parms can produce something
nice with it? As for me, I'll pass. (But thanks for mentioning it.)

BFN.
