Hello Fedora Art people! You rock. I don't want to switch distros,
because you guys put out open Media that I can use to print my own CDs.
That said, with Fedora 10, I installed a Live CD, and wanted to print a
disc, but found a couple of issues.
I can print directly to my discs using my Epson Stylus Photo R320 and
printable CDs, if I get a high resolution rasterized graphic, I can crop
and print with GIMP/gutenprint and everything is gravy.
However, I like having the architecture printed on the disc, so I can
tell the difference between my 64-bit and 32-bit discs. I complained
once, but Mo Duffy politely told me how I can change the SVG text so
that I can put whatever I want. A simple search and replace was all I
needed to do. Again, awesome.
However, for Fedora 10, downloading the artwork source, I got scribus,
which I don't know much about using, but wasn't installed on the Live
Media. I installed it, but I was kind of lost. I managed to get an SVG
somehow, and then I was going to print it, but noticed the fonts were
Is there some font being used that I don't have? Considering this is
Fedora, surely, it is open and available, I'm guessing I just need to
install it. I don't know how to do that, or even what I'm looking for,
but all I really want is to print media art on my discs.
I appreciate any help, and encourage the project to include fonts used
in the media art with the Live CD. I don't know how big a font is, and I
know media space is limited, but I really found this disheartening.
Other than that, keep on rocking.
