Bonne année / Happy New Year 2008

[Français]

Ainsi s'achève l'année 2007. Le Libre Graphic Meeting 2007 à Montréal a été le point tournant où j'ai pris la décision de commencer le cours sur les arts graphiques. Les icônes d'Echo n'ont pas été prêt pour Fedora 8 et le développement pour Fedora 9. Le portable XO a été un succès avec son lancement sous le programme G1G1 (Donnez un, recevez un) terminée le 31 décembre 2007.

Pour 2008, le but est de compléter le developpement des icônes Echo pour Fedora 9, fournir en détail le tutoriel pour la création des icones isométriques, participer à certains projets de Fedora tout en ayant des classes des arts graphiques. Une fois de plus, Bonne Année.

2007 is over. Montreal Libre Graphic Meeting 2007 was the turning point where I decided to take Graphic Design class for a year and half. Echo icons were not ready for Fedora 8 and pushed to Fedora 9 instead. XO laptop was a success with its G1G1 (give on get one) program which ended on 2007 December 31.

For 2008, the goal is to complete Echo icons development for Fedora 9, writing a tutorial for creating an isometric icons Echo uses, be more active on some Fedora projects while being in Graphic Design. One more time, Happy New Year.

Running Fedora 25 Design Suite on ASUS X550ZE laptop

This blog is written on Fedora 25 Design Suite running on ASUS X550ZE.The upgrade from Design Suite 24 to 25 using Gnome Software went smooth with very little impact to the entire system.


Inheriting the features from Fedora 25 Workstation, Design Suite now gained further support of hybrid hardware notably laptops (see above feature). Following the release cycle, supplemental wallpapers from Fedora 23 are replaced by their 25th version to mark the end of life of the 23rd release next month.

Design received new applications like Gnome Books useful for e-books and Calendar to easily manage the schedule.

  To enable full support of hotkeys and optimal power management due to the boot scheme bug in Linux kernel, 4.9.0rc4 or above (currently residing in Rawhide nodebug repository at the time of writing) is required and will soon reach availability via update. The case applied to some hybrid laptops (ASUS X550ZE in this example).

Looking for Design Suite 26 with further improvement of Gnome …

Scribus in copr scribus-unstable repository now supports spellcheck

Starting from 1.5.3-0.19 snapshot, Scribus now has spell check enabled, one of requested features for free and open source desktop publishing software. Additionally, this version includes appstream by default allowing visibility in both Gnome Software and Apper.
The ability to read Microsoft Visio, Pagemaker and even Adobe InDesign files is a welcome addition to see the migration. More changelog available

Users looking to try this snapshot can access COPR repository and install it alongside the stable version.

On a side note, Scribus Generator is an excellent utility for mail-merge alternative.

Blender and video sequence editor on Fedora

Due to the legal matter related to FFMpeg, the video editor on Blender for Fedora will fail to run any video format. Tracking this bug report, it seems possible to build FFMPEG without the patented codecs thus possibly allow Blender video editor to properly run.

For the time being, alternative is already available on Fedora repository like Pitivi bundled in Fedora Design Suite. The downside is the occasional crash while editing, the upside is the use of extensible Gstreamer on several plugins compared to FFMPEG although the latter is popular.
