I don't know much about using a bash script, but you can use php since it's already running this site. You can modify the code below to change the rotate intervals, but it would be on each page load. The images are small enough that it shouldn't matter....for now.

 

<?
$ris = "/img";
$picture = array();
$picture[0] = "$ris/1.jpg";
$picture[1] = "$ris/3.jpg";
$picture[2] = "$ris/4.jpg";
$picture[3] = "$ris/5.jpg";
$picture[4] = "$ris/6.jpg";
$picture[5] = "$ris/7.jpg";
$picture[6] = "$ris/8.jpg";
$picture[7] = "$ris/9.jpg";
$picture[8] = "$ris/10.jpg";
$count = count($picture) - 1;
$num = rand(0,$count);
echo ('<img src="'.$picture[$num].'" alt=" " width=" " height=" " border="0" />');
?>

 

Hope that helps.

you'll need to add that as a php file to the server, then create it to be run as a task from the admin control panel

I like those logos, especially with the use of the tux, but from a technical point of view, the dont look visually as good as they should, the outlined fonts look very rough, and the type setting and font choice could be improved, so on that note i'm going to power up photoshop and do some new versions.

Here are a few initial mockups based on the new IBP design.

 

Note that the background gradient is from the right-hand area of the IBP header; I can't get a copy of the lighter blue gradient background used for the logo in the original without any text on it!

A more traditional, yet modern (with crystal effect) Tux logo.

Also using a modified Tux G2 design http://tux.crystalxp.net/en.id.15113-lilitux-tux-atlas.html licensed under CC BY-NC-SA.

 

There are more G2-style Tuxes to a specific theme at Tux Factory. Perhaps a time-rotating set of suitable versions?

 

Anyway, here are my initial ideas on this.

Thanks! :)

 

I will aim to put together a few more soon, with some of the other better Tux variations so that there are enough to rotate with.

Here are a few more, including a Christmas one for the appropriate time.

Again, the CC licences apply to this stuff, all Tux images from the same source as before.

Anyweb, we really do need to have a notice in the footer to comply with the Creative Commons licensing of the G2 (fatter) style Tuxes. Something like:

 

"The G2-style Tux and the header images using them are licensed under Creative Commons BY-NC-SA. The G2-style Tux images are all from http://crystalxp.net/. Thanks to users kami23, lilitux, iva, overlord59, whidou, brightknight, emulienfou on the Crystal XP Tux Factory site."

 

That should cover the attribution requirement for http://crystalxp.net and the author of each individual image put on the site so far (including these two new ones).

thanks Yeok

 

i've added that one too, so now we have 9 new logos, please keep it up dudes !

 

i'd love to somehow have a tux sleeping or relaxing on the 'linux-noob' text, just like we had him sliding down it on the old logos...

Well, today's new design makes the old logo styles obsolete. If anyone wants to make any new ones, they are more than welcome.

 

The files need to be 358x64 pixels, and you should use the 'blank' template file below for the background to look seamless. You might also want to use the template image below that which already has the text on it.

 

Feel free to fire up your favourite graphics package and submit some new logos by replying to this post and attaching your files!
