An good little .cbr comic book archive reader for Ubuntu (or for any other Linux distro at that) is Comix, a lightweight and free image archive viewer by Pontus Ekberg, a computer science student from Sweden. It has all the normal stuff (as well as a ton more) that you would expect from a comic book reader, including: Fullscreen mode. Double page mode. Fit image to window width, height or both. Rotation and mirroring. Magnifying glass. Image enhancements. Both left-to-right and right-to-left reading modes. Bookmarks support. Archive comments support. Archive editor. Comic book library. Reads most common image formats. Reads ZIP and tar archives natively, and RAR archives through the unrar program. Runs on Linux, *BSD and virtually any other UNIX-like OS. It is easily added to your Ubuntu installation by a simple search and install on the term “comix” via your Ubuntu Software Center. Nifty. Related Link: http://comix.sourceforge.net/
I like Arial Black. There is something compelling about that big and chunky font that makes me always want to include it in my designs. However, it is a Microsoft Windows font and it comes thus as no surprise that it isn’t available by default on a new Ubuntu desktop installation. Never fear though, not all is lost… it turns out that installing some of the Microsoft Windows core fonts isn’t necessarily that difficult after all!
Craig Lotter is an established web developer and application programmer, with strong creative urges (which keep bursting out at the most inopportune moments) and a seemingly insatiable need to love all things animated. Living in the beautiful coastal town of Gordon's Bay in South Africa, he games, develops, takes in animated fare, trains under whichever martial arts dojo is closest at the time, and for the most part, simply enjoys life with his amazing wife and daughter.
Oh, and he draws ever now and then too.
This is a collection of things that he has managed to find the time to scribble down since 2007.
