Closed: Fixed None Opened 3 years ago by jflory7.

= Phenomenon =

'''Discussed in [https://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting-1/2016-05-18/marketing.2016-05-18-20.55.html 2016-05-18 meeting].

In the [https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-24/f-24-marketing-tasks.html upcoming marketing tasks] for Fedora 24, it lists taking screenshots for the next release as an objective.

= Background Analysis =

This was completed for [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing/F23_Screenshots Fedora 23]. Important questions to ask:

  • What screenshots are needed?
  • Who needs the screenshots?
  • Where will they be used?

= Implementation Recommendation =

If needed, we can have someone run the F24 Beta to take screenshots. cprofitt volunteered to do this earlier if needed.

mailga, since you led this task for Fedora 23, could you explain the process and what needs to be done for F24 (e.g. do we only need screenshots of new things or all the DEs)?


Please take care to create the page starting from the link in the [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing#Release_deliverables main wikipage] that leads [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F24_screenshots_library here].

The process is very simply, I installed the release and the spin in several VM and took the screenshot.
I only paid attention to have screenshots in the same resolution.
Last time the desktop background changed a bit between the beta and the final in LXDE or XFCE spin (if I recall correctly), so it make sense wait until we are sure that the release will happen.

Added screenshots for Cinnamon, MATE, and LXDE. linuxmodder added shots for GNOME. KDE and XFCE to go.

Looks great to me so far! Nice work. Were KDE and Xfce still blocking on the lack of a F24 beta image?

Added KDE and XFCE screenshots. Ticket closed.
