  • Hi everybody! Bare with me as I fix up this forum. The database crashed and I had to rebuild. Almost done. - Marc. Nov, 6th

Hello From Jim Lyle - a Linux user!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!  I have been playing off and on with TC7 for a few year.  Marc was gracious enough to let me get my subscription back after a couple of years (I suspect he knew I wound be buyng add on pacs ;0)

I have no artistic talent to speak of ,this software is like one big coloring book to me  When my anxiety starts getting the best of me, I just fire it up git 'r dun,  Some of them come out ok,most not.  hmmm what else;  I am  52 year old "GET OFF MY LAWN YOU DAMM KIDS' kind of guy . I work for a very large software company.  Speaking of which, that software is in pubic beta now, so the updates will be sparse for the next little bit.  

 

I'm a Unix (Linux) user ...and The Creator really only works with Mac and Windows

BUT I use a simulator called WINE for Linux to run The Creator.
As of right now the following works just fine;

[jim@fred ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release  
Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five)
[jim@fred ~]$ uname -r
4.11.3-202.fc25.x86_64
[jim@fred ~]$ wine --version
wine-2.10 (Staging)


If anyone has any linux questions, or anything at all ask away

 

Oh, and please, I do this for fun  and construction criticism is always welcome.  The only thing I ask is to explain the *how* you arrived at a certain suggestion,  It all you do is say do x, than y, I won't lean anything.  I do realized our time is valuable and respect any you can give me.

 

 

  All that being said, I do have one pro-tip.  Lets assume you just became a plat member at sadduck.com  Ifs vert easy to be overwhelmed  with content . If you are following the standard directory structure and want to place them all in /home/jim/Documents/Laughingbird Documents/Logo Elements *note* the structure will be a bit different, the important part is the zips going into "Logo Elements"

Real easy at this point to "$ unzip *.zip" and we will end up with big mess.  Mainly. all the content will be in Logo Elements stuff that used wok had gone on strike and basic structure means nohing to you, then carry on

 

If you would prefer a more organized existence, then follow along.  I use chome, don;t care what you preference i.  Hell, give Lynx a try. Now this is  both really important and really annoying...  You can only download a couple a time.  And there are lots of them.  For the purposes of this demo, I am going to oo wth 3.

So, off we go to to the fabled land,,,  http://sadduck.com/pmembers.php

We grab 3 file from there:

Now, here is the fun part,  We can do it with 3 or 50

Just  simple substituiton.  All you need is the file name and what you want the resulting directory to be name.  So for our purposes, the files are:

[jim@fred Logo Elements]$ ls -ltr
total 176352
-rw-rw-r--. 1 jim jim  17805945 Jun 22 07:27 'USA rwb 3D text jct.zip'
-rw-rw-r--. 1 jim jim   1616275 Jun 22 07:36 Dalek.zip
-rw-rw-r--. 1 jim jim  26543721 Jun 22 07:36 AlienBot.zip
-rw-rw-r--. 1 jim jim 134589139 Jun 22 07:36 4thJuly2016.zip
 

So, we take the first one....

[jim@fred Logo Elements]$ unzip 'USA rwb 3D text jct.zip' -d usa

and there you go:

[jim@fred Logo Elements]$ tree

Wow! Lots of information! Pretty awesome that you use Linux when everyone else talks PC or MAC. I poked around with it back in the day, but just found myself always going back to the PC. 

Thanks for sharing how to organize your graphics, and for the 'Shout Out' for Sad Duck! :D
