Introduction

The Design Suite is a Fedora Spin targeted towards professional designers, specifically the Fedora Design Team.

Goals

  • target 1: showcase of design team work -- wallpapers
  • target 2: typesetting -- fonts, inkscape, color profiles
  • target 3: general art/design work -- gimp, inkscape, color profiles, brushes
  • target 4: video editing -- including screencasting (pitivi and blender)
  • target 5: desktop publishing -- LibreOffice + templates, scribus, pdfshuffler
  • target 6: website -- with the growing trend toward HTML5, provide a web editor like Bluefish

Download

The latest image is available at nightly compose site in 32 bits (i686) and 64 bits (x86_64).

How to contribute

Current tasks

  • #Download the current version and test it (at this point, you may want to do so in a VM (virtual machine)). Send feedback to the design-team mailing list.
  • Help us fill in our list of #Packages - what would you like to see on a Design Studio Spin and why?

Upcoming milestones

To be determined

Design concepts

This section needs to be filled out.

What are the design concepts we've agreed on for this? Possible examples include:

  • select 'best of breed' apps vs "include as much as possible"
  • restrict to graphics vs also go for audio/video
  • include data vs not including data

Technical requirements

  • Based on: Fedora Desktop
  • Size: at least 2GB usb stick or DVD

Packages

To suggest a package we should include, add it to the #Under consideration table.

Questions

  • What do we do with brushes?
  • Will we get our own spin design?
  • Which gimp plugins do we include?
  • What about a comps group for the spin?
  • What makes it into a bookmarks package?
  • Will we get great inkscape tutorials packaged [1]?

List of included packages

No longer constrained by the size of livecd, more unique packages are included in the suite. One notable exception is cinepaint remaining as part of default package due to its support of HDR images for higher color fidelity which is missing in Gimp 2.8 (2.9.x does but it is not part of Fedora repository).

gthumb replaced by shotwell
koffice-krita pulls a lot of kde stuff in
pngcrush duplicates optipng

tracker-search-tool it's a live media
vino we don't really need a vnc server
vinagre same goes for a vnc client
openclipart this is way too big

nathive feature set too small. pinta is better suited
