*or* against any proposal to use a consistent theme for screenshots.

Based on this decision there should be a wiki page describing how
screenshots are recommended to be taken.

Existing screenshots should only be replaced when time allows it (for
example when the respective chapter or book is worked over).

Do we need to add anything else?

Are these options to vote on sufficient to consider the different
opinions mentioned here?

I'd like to wait for another 24 hours for comments and start the voting

Best regards


I had left this as another thing to think about:

The only other thing that we really did not discuss was the use of 
"pointers/cursors". I personally like the "OpenZone white" 
pointer/cursor theme. It is available for Gnome and KDE[1][2], but it 
has a very nice defined white cursor arrow and white fill. This would 
give everyone a standard pointer/cursor theme that they could install.

Once we have completed the agreement on the components of the theme, 
I'll commit to looking into creating an installable theme for the Linux 
group so that we can easily install it through the Gnome/KDE tools.

I'm not sure about the theme for mouse pointers. I usually set Gimp to not include the mouse 
pointer when taking a screenshot. In this case you won't see it at all. But I guess, there's no 
harm in suggesting which theme to use for the mouse pointer as well. 

@Larry Gusaas, 
There are only a few people who have a Mac (I don't have one either). So if you feel, that our 
documentation is lacking Mac-specific content, how about joining the Documentation team and helping 
out? Just complaining doesn't help with the problem. ;)
