Joey I tend to agree with you.

I remember seeing a short film using the soundtrack of "How Great Thou Art" performed by many voices and a large orchestra - indeed I may have it on video somewhere so perhaps digitising would be good Smile

A Scandinavian folk-song melody, words written in Swedish by Carl Boberg as "O Store Gud" and translated into English by Stuart Hine - who should not have the authorship credit (but usually does).

While it is too easy to slide into pan-theism by looking at His handiwork, it is awesome (in the true meaning of the word). While there are many mind-blowing scenes of some of the Creator's creations, let us focus on the Creator, though Smile

Subject description: Where are we at and may I introduce myself
 

First, let me please introduce myself. My name is Christopher Rose. I am a student at Covenant Bible Seminary in Lakewood WA. I am quite curious as to what direction this project will go. I have tried out Christian Ubuntu and Ichthux, and had problems with both. I used PCLinuxOS for a period of time, but I have had problems with the repository sites. Hence, I decided to return to using puppy linux. I am presently using DigiPup. I think I'd like to this version once it is ready for beta test. Please let me know what I can do to help.

My e-mail is kf6snj at lycos.com

My point exactly. And besides, if someone wanted a cross or communion background, all they would have to do is do one search, pick the first result and download the graphic and they would probably be content with it.

Is there already a lot of people working on graphics for churchpup? I don't want to do anything if there's already an abundance of artwork. Is a website in the making? Do we need any more programs? How can I help?

Oh, I I think we need to include the NIV and NAS in whatever Bible program we use. I don't know what conclusion you came up with yet about it. I just noticed a few posts saying KJV is the only way to go. I disagree, but don't want to get into an argument because that's not the purpose of this forum. I just want to make sure any Christian can use this os and not be forced to use a version they don't like or are not familiar with.

Right. Here we go. Bare with me.

First off, thanks again for all the support and interest. I really like the kiosk idea, might suggest that at my church.

As to graphic makers, I'll be honest, graphics are coming in thick and fast and really since I have little-to-no programming experience it is this area that the project is currently lacking. Simplicity would be much appreciated here. Pet packages of everything needing to be added would be great and a few more ideas generally on programs would be much appreciated.

The main problems so far:
Presentation software, still no ideas
Music notation software, some ideas, not sure where to go
Parental controls, we haven't even discussed yet
Bible verse feature, still possibly fortune or next best thing?

Things we do know:
Kino video editor
Gnucash
Bible desktop (just as soon as I get it working, thanks for the pets PrairieDog)
Firefox, maybe use the themes in Christian Ubuntu?
Lots of beautiful wallpapers

Thanks again to everyone, just bare with me.

Why couldn't we just use openoffice for the powerpoint?

now by the bible verse feature, do you mean like a verse of the day? couldn't we just use something like the tip of the day that you see in just about every program? and then make it some sort of scheduled task to pop it up.

will gimp be on it?

I'll be on the lookout for music notation software, presentation, and parental controls/internet filtering. (I think I saw some on a bsd)
How about Audacity for a music editor.

Rosegarden will do music notation. The current version, however, is pretty big. Perhaps an older version of Rosegarden may do the trick, but it may look pretty ugly.

Audacity doesn't do music notation (You may know this already, but perhaps for someone who doesn't, this is good to know). It's a wave editor/recorder.

Ya, I knew audacity doesn't do notation. I may in the future, I bet. It's still growing.
hmm... I wonder if finale notepad will run under wine. It's got a fairly small binary, I think.
http://linux-sound.org/notation.html - list of music notation software. I'll take a further look at it soon.

Yep sorry I missed Audacity and Gimp on the list. Audacity is great for recording your sermon for podcasting purposes.

As to Impress in OOo that will have to be it unless there is anything better that anyone knows of.

I've created OHT slides for worship songs in both OOo and MS Office - and then projected them from the opposite product and never had a glitch.

It would be good to create templates for such, to be easily customised. I even have a large stock of such slides that I and others have created, which could be bundled if the template included a place to insert the CCLI licence number.

Talking of which, there is no need for that if the church has existing purchased acetate type overheads as the copyright has already been granted on them in the original purchase price.

We need remember that everything about licencing (whether we agree with it or not) has to be covered legally in a package for churches.

The document Penguin in the pew is a must to read for everyone involved here. Churches have to be seen as being honest and law-abiding.

Yes I use Audacity a lot, and consider it a fine and evolving application. I'm sure other things will be added, in due course, such as midi to wave conversion, for those who like to maintain CDs of accompaniment to practice instruments or voices against. I've been involved with running a small choir which another singer and I have taught reasonably successfully how to harmonise by ear without being able to read music.

I seriously doubt Audacity will ever do notation. It's purpose is as a wave editor, and not a notation editor or MIDI sequencer. Different types of programs completely.

Subject description: It would sure be nice to have one way or the other
 

Hi,

Just wanted to encourage you in your efforts.

While trying to make the time to learn linux, I just keep falling forward in learning more of what puppy has to offer.

I think if you went to your favorite internet sites for Christians and made sure whatever was needed to browse these sites and watch and listen was included... this sure would be a help to me that when I just went to ttb.org rather than some usually visited worldly site in my effort to replace bad habits with good, had this barrier to watch or listen for me anyway in that it said you needed realplayer or windows media player or.. damn.. i just wanted to listen.. so any listening helps would help this wretch of an old dawg. Lots of barriers to getting to the truth.. see if you can remove some of them and I am with you.

Mike

Though the cross is a bit cliche when it comes to Christian graphics, I have to say this looks like a really good background. I guess it's just done in a way that I don't see done too often, so that helps.
