Article from Issue 237/2020

This month in Linux Voice.

Is the desktop really just a metaphor? You bet it is. The software running on your computer doesn't really look like anything, and that icon you click on inhabits the familiar form of a printer or a camera just to keep you from freaking out. All these metaphorical graphic aids have to come from somewhere, and if you work with Linux, they often come from Gimp. This month we present a Gimp workshop that takes you through the steps of creating a graphical skin for a media player application.

Also in this month's LinuxVoice, we introduce you to Waterfox, a clone of the Mozilla Firefox browser designed for privacy and support for legacy add-ons. We also show MystiQ, a handy tool for converting multimedia file formats.
