In the next days i will start produce screencasts only on a xubuntu-pc .
Well someone now Heathenx Screencasters. I like it very much. He use the tool key status monitor.
This is a very useful tool to show watchers what you doing with your mouse and which keys/shortcuts you use.
A new Version is on Google.code: http://code.google.com/p/key-mon/
But don`t like the mouse buttons, so i create a new custom set using Inkscape. It is now more like an real and modern hardware i think. If you want to use this graphics, please fell free to download it directly here an put it into the png-folder:
This is a screenshot with custom buttons on my machine (yes, i like this darklooks theme 🙂 ):
The only problem is the german keyboard layout. Tobias Jakobs (from the GIMPforum.de) and i try to solve this but with some changes in the key-status file, but we cant get a good solution cause we are not programmers.
He added commandline option for delays.
My silly solution is, to rename some keys or save other png-graphics into the folder but it don`t work fully.
And we have the letters: Ö / Ü / Ä (the png`s are ready for it now)
This software is written in Phyton.
If someone (programmer) can help us, please contact me ! Thanks.

What are pull-shapes in Alchemy? Creative chaos ! 🙂
You can load some pdf-files into Alchemy an draw with them like an animated brush in GIMP.
I have made some new sets using Inkscape (green Links-> pdf files):
Here are the preview images:
Save it on you Computer. This sets are absolute free for use!!!
Build some shapes in Inkscape and save your document as pdf file. Create a new folder into the Alchemy-shapes folder and insert your new pdf-file into it.
Then start Alchemy and select the pull shapes and your new folder…have fun!
I just played with letters an combine them to a new shape in Inkscape.
Now you can download it as pdf-file as shape for Alchemy or as animated brushes in two versions for GIMP.
