Create NetBSD wallpapers The NetBSD Project
Status: Closed Time to complete: 24 hrs Mentors: Martin Husemann, Julian Coleman, Julian Fagir Tags: graphics

Currently, there are nearly no NetBSD wallpapers. The combination of beastie, the flag and the old logo (daemons on old computers), plus the very smooth NetBSD colours (orange, grey, white) should be a resource for nice wallpapers.

If you're fine with drawing on a computer or graphical programs (like The Gimp or Photoshop), this might be a nice and very creative task for you.

This task can be done multiple times and will be recreated as soon as it is claimed.


The images must be created with a resolution of at least 1920x1200 (better 2880x1800) and you must deliver the source files (with layers) as well.

Julian Fagir on November 28 2012 01:12 UTC Another font

Could you please try the same wallpaper, but with a different font and activated antialiasing for the font?

Anton Mitkow on November 28 2012 11:23 UTC Font

can you please define "different font" (color , size , type or what) ?

Julian Fagir on November 28 2012 11:51 UTC Just different type


a different type would be sufficient. Maybe also change the top colour, as the light grey is difficult to read, but that's optional.

Regards, Julian

Will you recreate the task again or this is the last time? I am working on it... should I stop?


Julian Fagir on November 30 2012 00:48 UTC Rather not


sorry for the confusion. We didn't want to recreate this task that often, we already recreated it several times and just copied the text. The part for the recreation then stay. This task will not be recreated.

Regards, Julian
