Re: Screen recorders, capture, etc.

Interesting the differing approaches Never had much problem with screencaptures in linux, probably because over the years I have always used KDE. This in Kubuntu 16.04. KDE uses 'activities' as well as 'desktops' This my 'activity' setup for screencapture, only inside the box is recorded using ffmpe...

Re: anyone tried slimjet or maxthon browser?

Use slimjet all the time.

12.06.0 in this kubuntu machine and older 32 bit versions on a linux netbook and my 32 bit PCLOS desktop.

A little heavy on resources but very configurable.

Sometimes you need a crystal ball. In this case I think it is this:

What you use to burn to a CD depends on your OS and available burning application.

Re: Halftone Shading

I might be missing something here but surely the point of traditional half-toning, as in reproducing grayscale images for printing, is the dots are on a regular grid and the dot size introduces the toning effect. A checker board pattern of different size is not strictly half-toning. A very coarse at...

Re: Need help making drawings into single line art 4 whitebo

Tyler, tried what you suggested and it still comes out as multiple objects verse a single line. I found this out by selecting the 'edit paths nodes' and you could clearly see it is outlined verse a single line. It is because Inkscape does not do a centerline trace. You need to run a bitmap (prefera...

Re: seeking vector french curves for inkscape

A larger image will certainly help, did this before that last post. This is more an exercise in bitmap tweaking than anything else. (all in Gimp) The gif is a bit small so too many jaggies on the outline. First convert from indexed to RGB. Normally scaling these is a waste of time but in this case, ...

..The one you are posting doesn't look like all the squares are the same size. Also, they aren't lined up...
