Linuxhelp _ News _ Please Read - Assistance Needed!

Posted by: Joey Jul 26 2003, 03:12 PM

Hi all,

Let me thank you ahead of time for reading this.

For those of you who haven't heard, we are in the process of updating the content on Linux Help as well as the look and feel of the site. Needless to say it's a lot of work but we believe that the finished product will be a lot better than what you see before you today.

Anyhow, I'm hoping that there are a few people out there that would like to help out.

We are looking for the following:

- Reviews (Distributions, software, hardware etc)
- Screen Shots (Gnome, KDE, etc) - A minimum resolution of 800x600 please.
- Linux User Groups. Know of a LUG in your area that isn't on our list? - http://www.linuxhelp.ca/lugs/
- Sites to link to us (we are starting a link exchange sort of program)
- Linux Logos ( http://www.linuxhelp.ca/logos/ needs an update )

So if you're interested in helping out please send me an email - joey at linuxhelp.ca

Thanks again guys and gals.

134 views and only 1 reply. Come on people smile.gif

If you don't know how to take a screen shot please let me know and I'll gladly help you through it.

I'm also looking for someone with a CD burner (mine is dead so I can't test this). I want to put an explanation on the site on how to burn ISO images. If you can spare 10-15 minutes of your time please email me ( joey at linuxhelp.ca) or msg me on MSN - joeyolson@hotmail.com

Please and thank-you smile.gif

blackphiber ... that is a NICE looking screenshot. In fact, I might add KDE to some of my boxes ... but I really like wub.gif GNOME wub.gif better! It is a nice screen shot though.

Here is a Gnome screenshot from my dual p4 xeon box....

Nice shot.

What sort of background images did you use for the icons on the panel and the panel background?

Posted by: hughesjr Aug 9 2003, 08:08 AM

The icons came from the Gentoo website:

The background for the toolbar is just this image streched:
