GNOME 3.0 is released!

Now GNOME 3.0 is released, and we can get or breath for a short while…

Thanks for everybody who have worked on 3.0 to make it such a great and successfull release! You are all SOOO awesome! Especially the danish translation team; Kenneth Nielsen, Ask H. Larsen, Joe Hansen, Anders Jenbo – whom I have worked with to make GNOME 3.0 even more awesome for the danish users.

I’m really happy to say…

GNOME 3.0 – 100% in danish!

Hi peeps!

I just wanna share some love with you… Today did something magic happen, because GNOME 3.0 is now 100% translated to danish, and ready for release on Tuesday!

Need a prove? Look here:

The danish translation team is awesome! You rock guys! :p

An echo in perspective…

Hello World Wide Web!

There has happened quite a lot since last time I posted here. I have dropped the Gnome Art team in favor of Fedora Design-team – and those people rocks the sh*t out of it! 😀

My main project in Fedora Design-team is to help with the “new” Echo Perspective icon-theme. I have done three icons so far – user-desktop, utilities-system-monitor & utilities-terminal – and more is in the works.

user-desktop icon
utilities-system-monitor icon
utilities-terminal icon

Take a look and tell me what you think 🙂 This would help me a lot.

The next thing I would like to tell about is that I have almost translated Fedora 12 to Danish! I still need two po-files, I think. The plan is that I have translated all of it when Fedora 12 have translation freeze.

The last thing is that I have started at my senior year two days ago. I’m really excited to get started and hope the year will go fast so I can be graduated! 😀

That’s all for now, see you!

Usability writings about Rhythmbox

Today I have used some time to observe and write a bit about some usabilty problems I have found in the music player Rhythmbox.
Everything I have written in my PDF is from my point of view – but I have tried to argument with links to the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.
I really hope that you can see what I mean and support me in this 🙂 If some of the developers see this blogpost I hope that you will take this into consideration – and eventually give me a comment about why you do as you do 🙂

New to art, blogs – but very productive…

Hello World!

This is my first blogentry on my new blog – I hope you will enjoy it.
The blog will be my showroom for my artwork, as well as a place where I share my thoughts about what’s happening in the GNOME, Fedora & Linux world.

First at all, I need to present myself
I’m an 18 year old boy from a little European countrycalled Denmark – it’s right above Germany. My name is Kris; “Hello!”.
In the Linux world, I contribute with the Danish Fedora translations – actually I’m the Danish maintainer – and besides that I try to do a little artwork for the GNOME-art team; “Hi people!” 😀

Enough talk about me, let’s talk about me
I have in the last week or so tried to make some artwork, which I want to show to you here.
First I have made an icon for GNOME-mud – it’s the first in a series of… Maybe three (don’t know how many I actually want to do yet) – a crown:

Tim Horton, a GSoC student this year!, also made a request for ideas to tiles for Light Off – and here is my try, not sure if it’s finished yet:
Tiles for Lights Off

The last thing I have worked on is more of a personal character – a new Metacity theme, right now it’s only a mockup, and I’m not sure if it’s even possible to make it into a real theme; but anyway, I want to give it a try:

But, give me a comment if you like some of my stuff, and tell me what you like, and what that can be made better!

Bye for now!
