Because I wanted to produce the final versions of some of the TV channel logos I was developing before pushing the changes to @ocram. The script he uses to produce his original picons is not available so I wrote my own.
On Debian/Ubuntu based operating systems these can be installed by installing the packages
generatepicons home page is at http://solitudo.net/software/misc/generatepicons/
and it can be downloaded by cloning the public Git repository at
interface is available at http://scm.solitudo.net/gitweb/public/generatepicons.git.
Just install the dependencies, clone the Git repo and put
generatepicons.py anywhere you want (or run directly
from the cloned working directory).
for full command line help.
Typical use case to generate all the picons and symlinks for them would be
git clone git://github.com/ocram/picons.git cd picons /path/to/generatepicons.py for dir in ocram-picons/*; do sh picons.sh $dir; done
ocram-picons you would find
subdirectories that contain the ready stuff.
During the execution of the script you might see a lot of lines like this in the terminal:
gx=0.321210, gy=0.597870, bx=0.155890, by=0.066040 wx=0.345750, wy=0.358550, rx=0.648500, ry=0.330880 gx=0.321210, gy=0.597870, bx=0.155890, by=0.066040 wx=0.345760, wy=0.358580, rx=0.648450, ry=0.330860
This is caused by warning
printf’s in an older
versions of libpng.
It’s harmless though annoying. See
Also thanks to @tkurbad for his piconlinks.py. Some of the bulk code (args parsing, main function) was shamelessly stolen from his script. This is my first public Python script, after all :)
