Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope Desktop Wallpaper

November 18, 2008

I was a little disappointed that Intrepid Ibex didn’t get its own desktop wallpaper until really late in the development cycle (2008-09-26).

I run so many Hardy, Intrepid, and Jaunty virtual machines at a time, that the background is usually the easiest way to tell them apart.

So I decided to create my own Jaunty Jackalope background image for this development cycle.

I used a picture I had taken last spring, when a momma rabbit had 4 baby rabbits in our front yard. Using Gimp, I cropped it, tweaked it to a more “human” color scheme, and rendered some little jackalope button horns. The original looks like this:

As such, these 3 little Jackalopes are “under development”, and nearly arranged in an Ubuntu “circle of friends” 😉

    Oh please, why can’t they choose another name ?
    Jackalopes are plain ridiculous :-/

    And the real ones are just… disgusting and heartbreaking (poor thing). 😦
