Hello my dear friends of the community
Our wallpaper submission deadline for openSUSE 12.2 is now over. We
asked a few of our artists to help us create a good selection of
wallpapers for the upcoming release. Our deadline was fixed very early
since the wallpaper is has become a key element in creating derivative
artwork, such as Twitter banners, Facebook profile pictures, DVD
sleeves and many other things. Hence our early date, we wanted to work
on our artwork early enough so that we can make more derivative
artwork faster and with improved quality.
We understand that there may be people in the community who have
worked on wallpapers for 12.2 and have not yet submitted them to the
wallpaper artwork page located here
If you know of anyone who is worked on a wallpaper and would like to
submit them, please let us know via email. You can reply to this email
to let us know as well. That way we can include everyone who wanted to
give this contest a try. If no there are no replies by Monday January
23, 2012, we will assume that such wallpapers cannot make it into the
Another change we made this time is that we will choose one default
wallpaper and then two other wallpapers as extras in case users would
not want to use the default wallpaper. For this I am trying to find
out what packages can carry the default wallpaper and what package can
carry the other 2 wallpapers chosen. Please, if you know, post it on
this email thread. I believe coolo might now, would you let us know
what is more recommendable in case we want to include more wallpapers?
As usual, you can review the wallpapers on the page mentioned above
and start voting just like it was done last time.
One more thing, thank you so much artists for your great and valuable
work. openSUSE should look pretty awesome after your contributions
made it to the release. Thank you again.
PS: My emails are imperfect. I may have omitted important information.
