Edubuntu Live Welcome

Simple Greeter for Live Systems

During the last development cycle we launched Edubuntu WebLive, which uses a Drupal module to create remote users on an application server and connect the user via NX. We thought of popping up a web page when the user logs in, explaining what it is that they have logged in to and how to get around.

We then moved to make it a bit more simpler with a Webkit/PythonGTK interface that displays the slides on login. It loads a bit faster than a full browser and there are less buttons and things that could potentially get in the way.

We need some nice slides

The messages we want to convey, as seen in the screenshots above are quite simple, but as you can see in these screenshots they are quite crude and definitely early work. I seem to be running low on creative juices on this and have asked for feedback on the edubuntu-devel mailing list but haven’t gotten much response yet, so I thought I’d post this to Planet Ubuntu and try to get some wider feedback. If you have some ideas or would like to propose some slides (it doesn’t have to be anything like mine), feel free to do so. Natty’s artwork hasn’t been finalised yet, which also makes it a bit harder, but it would be nice to get it right at least in concept for now. Feel free to comment here or through the usual Edubuntu contact points, or submit a patch!
