X-Splash For Edubuntu 10.04

After talking with Stéphane Graber at UDS Dallas about new artwork for Edubuntu 10.04, I've created a very simple X-splash throbber mockup.

There's a lot of other artwork related tasks to work on for 10.04 as Edubuntu will have the following needs for the next release:

Main artwork
  • Wallpaper (at least one, should be 1920x1440 as the Ubuntu one)
  • Gnome/GTK theme (might be the same as Ubuntu)
  • Icon theme (might be the same as Ubuntu or our current one)
  • GDM theme (or at least background, depending on how we can customize it nowadays)
  • Splash (xsplash + usplash/plymouth depending on what's used for Ubuntu)
  • LDM background (for LTSP, same requirements as last time) (we'll need an Ubuntu and an Edubuntu background here)
Additional artwork
  • Theme for KDE (wallpaper, kdm theme, ...)
Stéphane Graber will create a complete wiki page listing the needs for each of these items (size, resolution, restrictions, ...) and will then announce it on both ubuntu-artwork and the edubuntu mailing-lists. As you can see from the list, there' s a lot of things to work on, and Edubuntu is looking for all the help they can get.
