=== Installing the Design Suite ===
  
A several members of the Fedora Design Team participated last week at the Fedora Users and Developers Conference (FUDCon) in Zurich, where the team meet for a few tracks: in the first day [[User:duffy|Máirín Duffy]] delivered<ref>http://mairin.wordpress.com/2010/09/18/more-fudcon-day-1-fudcon-day-2/</ref> a presentation about creating digital art with GIMP and Inkscape in the main room in front of an interested audience "So I gave my Gimp & Inkscape tutorial session in the afternoon. For the hour that I had I went over by 30 minutes or so, but my very patient audience stuck around (thank you!)", in the second day Máirín organised a Design Team Workshop<ref>http://mairin.wordpress.com/2010/09/18/more-fudcon-day-1-fudcon-day-2/</ref> for the team members to meet and plan the activity and [[User:ppapadeas|Papadeas Pierros]] held<ref>http://pierros.papadeas.gr/?p=141</ref> a workshop about the 'Design Suite' spin "think we managed to reach a consensus on that: Design Suite should focus on the Graphic tools and provide also basic functionality for Audio and Video editing". The third day the team meet again in a BarCamp session about creating 'awesome art stuff'<ref>http://mairin.wordpress.com/2010/09/19/fudcon-day-3-awesome-art-stuff-barcamp-session/</ref>, also conducted by Máirín "We kind of left it open-ended, but since Milan from the Spacewalk team needed a hackergotchi and I had just taken some photos of him for it this morning, I offered a run through of making a hackergotchi in the Gimp as a demo we could do, and asked the audience if they had anything they’d be interested in."

Installing the Design Suite

Following an user question[1] "I've already got Fedora installed. How do I add the Suite to the existing platform", Máirín Duffy suggested[2] a long yum command "yum install agave blender entangle fontforge fontmatrix gimp gimp-*-plugin GREYCstoration-gimp mathmap inkscape mypaint nautilus-image-converter optipng rawtherapee scribus shotwell synfigstudio ufraw xournal jokosher pitivi gtk-recordmydesktop", Nicu Buculei asked[3] for a group/comp "Maybe we should look intro providing a: yum groupinstall design-suite", Gianluca Sforna offered his help[4] "I could help with the 'comps' part (e.g. actually creating the package group) if needed, then you may just add @design-tools in the kickstart file" while Ankur Sinha proposed[5] "Would it be overkill to just create a meta package that pulls in these packages as dependencies? 'yum install design-suite' will then install them all?"

A Design FAD in 2011?

Henrik Heigl advanced the idea[1] of a Design FAD (Fedora Activity Day) "for quite a while there is an idea in the head of some of the Design-Team members to get together for a FAD. As far as I know Design-team had not something like it IRL, so the idea came up to put something together near the next LGM [Libre Graphics Meeting] in Montreal. That would be the weekend May 7-8 or better 14-15 depending on how much we want to do this weekend."

Free Media Mailer

Ankur Sinha requested[1] an improved envelope design "Can someone please make a mailer that the free media program could use to send it's media in? We already have one[1], but it isn't very generic" and following an indication[2] from Máirín Duffy made[3] a proper ticket. Nicu Buculei suggested[4] better visibility for the request "How about turning this into a bounty item?", Marc Stewart showed[5] the work he did "Since I'd already started drawing up the basic framework, I've turned it into a template, including some useful resources on a separate layer" and Onyeibo Oku accepted[6] the ticket "I took interest in this task being a member of the Free-media as well. So, I accepted the ticket. Looks much similar to a design I did before ... which was of no consequence."
