 +Libre Graphics Suite is a custom Fedora-based Linux LiveCD with graphics and design tools.
 +The code repository is hosted at [[https://​​libregraphicsmag/​distro | Gitorious]].
 +===Current version===
 +The current version v0.1 is currently being tailored together.
 +The idea is to have a basic, clean LiveCD targeted especially towards:
 +  * Graphic design students
 +  * Graphic designers who might be interested in an alternative to their proprietary tools
 +  * Anyone interested in designing for print and web
 +It should show how powerful and diverse FLOSS can be, even for designers who are mostly used to proprietary software.
 +  * **Desktop:​** \\ Xfce (lightweight,​ fast, intuitive for new users)
 +  * **Distribution:​** \\ Fedora (very strict on licensing issues, kickstart files for customizing)
 +  * **Software** \\ Set of typical FLOSS design software, some candy added. Also Firefox, Thunderbird and some really needed basic applications will be included.
 +  * **Size:** \\ Target is 700MB, but can (and will) be exceeded as optical storage is merely superseded by flash storage
 +  * **Design resources:​** \\ Lots of fonts, OpenClipart package, pre-configured browser bookmarks and some documentation stuff. All optional.
 +  * **Artwork:​** \\ Custom wallpaper, theme and icon set. Low priority: Custom theme for GRUB and Plymouth (Bootloader and graphical boot process).
 +  * 
 +===Sources and tools used===

 +  * Custom kickstart file (see below)
 +  * [[http://​​lgs/​logo-black.svg | Logo]] (sort of)
 +====Custom kickstart file====
 +The repository contains a single kickstart file to create a custom Fedora spin.
 +See the file [[https://​​libregraphicsmag/​distro/​blobs/​master/​libre-graphics-spin.ks | here]].
