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.

Drawing hair with Inkscape

My very first online tutorial is an adaption from Chris Design Drawing Hairs article using both Path and Path Editor tools which requires Inkscape 0.47 or newer. Start-up Inkscape application which should open a new blank page and set the document into landscape.  Create a path Select the bezier tool or press either Shift+F6 or B on the keyboard. Draw a line to approximately 800px or more. You can also use rectangle tool ( R or F4 as shortcut key) as a thin line illustrated in grey. While the line is selected, convert into path from the menu Path -> Stroke to Path or press Ctrl+Alt+C on the keyboard. For the rectangle, Path -> Object to Path or Ctrl+Shift+C . The result will show grey diamonds on each corner. Create a pattern On the menu, Extensions -> Modify Paths -> Add Nodes . Set the Max Segments Length to 5px. On the menu Extension -> Modify Paths -> Jitter Nodes . Leave the default settings and apply effects.

HP, Linux and ACPI

 Majority of HP hardware running on Linux and even Microsoft reported an issue related to a non-standard compliant ACPI. Notable message below repeats at least three times on the boot: 4.876549] ACPI BIOS Error (bug): AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT, Field [D128] at bit offset/length 128/1024 exceeds size of target Buffer (160 bits) (20190215/dsopcode-198)  [ 4.876555] ACPI Error: Aborting method \HWMC due to previous error (AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT) (20190215/psparse-529)  [ 4.876562] ACPI Error: Aborting method \_SB.WMID.WMAA due to previous error (AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT) (20190215/psparse-529) The bug is a known for years from which Linux kernel team are unable to fix without the help of vendor i.e. HP. Here is a compilation of reports: BIOS error: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. ACPI BIOS ERROR (blue screen) on startup   ACPI bad works with Linux    The good news is some errors seems harmless. Unfortunately, such errors displayed the quirks approach used by

Getting ready for Vanlug

Busy weekend. I just took a break for making a presentation of Fedora Core 6 and Fedora Project for Vancouver Linux Users Group which will debut on November 20, 2006. A local computer store was kind enough to give me a laptop for the demonstration of Fedora Core 6 (Zod) live spin and Sugar interface from OLPC Project. Should you be interested to view that event and live near Vancouver, here is the address .
