FWIW the next three desktop spins (in order of popularity) are: mate-compiz, xfce, and cinnamon.

KDE

There are a number of places Fedora branding is (and will be) used.

Login & lock screen

This is separately tracked for new branding in #711.

This branding is in the plasma-workspace source package.

Desktop splash

This is something we want to have refreshed with the Fedora release artwork, which for Fedora 34 is tracked in #688. More info about this is in fedora-kde/SIG#31.

This branding is in the plasma-workspace source package.

"About System" page in System Settings

This is what it looks like today:

This branding is in the kinfocenter source package.

Application Menu panel

This is what the desktop looks like today, with the application menu button on the bottom left (note that the dark color scheme for panels will become the default with the upcoming Plasma 5.21 update):

This branding is in the plasma-workspace source package.

I believe there's also a use of the logo in the new user initial welcome flow in GNOME in Fedora Workstation?

I believe that all of these live in the fedora-logos package. (Tag @spot)

The package is at https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/fedora-logos, with the "upstream" tarball at https://pagure.io/fedora-logos

Maybe the easiest approach is to go through the list of files there and replace them (or, perhaps, obsolete, in the case of the Fedora Atomic branding for Anaconda), and then validate whether everything noted here has changed.

Some notes on how Fedora branding is currently set for GNOME:

Initial setup → language selection

  • Package name: gnome-initial-setup
  • Seems to set the image name to be fedora-logo-icon

Note that initial setup has two paths:

  1. If run after Anaconda, shows a welcome screen with no distro branding
  2. If not run after Anaconda (say in an OEM situation), shows the language selection screen with the distro logo

Tour welcome video

  • Package name: gnome-tour
  • GNOME 3.38 path: fedora-initial-intro.webm is being added to the package here.
  • GNOME 40 path: the graphic on the first page is swapped out with a branded one - see this commit

I think that the branded assets are coming direct from @jimmac and probably aren't publicly hosted.

Login screen

  • Package name: gdm/gnome-shell
  • Path: image is configured using the org.gnome.login-screen logo gsettings key, which is currently set to /usr/share/pixmaps/fedora-gdm-logo.png (provided by fedora-logos)

Background logo

  • Package name: gnome-shell-extension-logo (package, upstream)
  • Logo path: /usr/share/fedora-logos/fedora_lightbackground.svg (set here)

Settings → About

  • Package: gnome-control-center
  • Current logo: patched in here (uses fedora-logo-vertical)

Tour welcome video

  • Package name: gnome-tour
  • Path: fedora-initial-intro.webm is being added to the package here. Unclear where it's coming from (jimmac or kalev could tell us).

Note that the intro video will likely be retired in GNOME 40/F34, since the onboarding is being adjusted to match the updated shell design. The current plan is to use a welcome graphic in the shell instead.

Was there a discussion somewhere about this? That would be unfortunate since it was something that a lot of people commented on as being a really nice touch.

I used the LXDE desktop environment ... I haven't seen him mentioned here.

This is my proposed SVG icon for the Cockpit favicon.

Feel free to change if you think it doesn't fit. It's just an idea.

If necessary, a ticket can be created.

Fedora_logo_Cockpit_favicon.svg

gnome-tour has a new branded graphic on the first page (instead of the video). I've added details about this to my previous comment above.

I realized today that there is one other image that we need to change:

20210227_145312.jpg

This is used for UEFI boot on some systems, notably Macs.

Do you know what file that is? /usr/share/pixmaps/bootloader/fedora.icns, perhaps?

It is. It's part of fedora-logos.

All of the images in fedora-logos are going to be replaced (in some cases with the existing file moved to (name)_classic. It's useful to note their uses here (because some a pretty obscure!), but also if you find any that aren't in fedora-logos, please file a bug.
