[IC][Official] GMK Ubuntu (Update : IC Form)
« on: Sun, 30 July 2017, 10:26:12 »
Hi, guys, this is my first thread and post in GH.

GMK Ubuntu is inspired from... well, Ubuntu. My first and favourite Linux distribution.
I've signed the License Agreement with the Ubuntu owner, Canonical Ltd., so this can be called official. :D

You can read about them here : https://www.ubuntu.com/about

Here is the render for Base Kit :


If you want to config whether your keyboard fit this set or not, you can check it via this KLE link :
http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/fcd6849da6ca4d00b2268f8922a479b1
Note that the logo aren't present because of the custom logo.

Color :
Orange : #E95420 (Pantone 1665)
Purple : #5E2750 (Pantone 511)
White : CP

IC Form :
https://goo.gl/forms/fsaJIadcCG4xB53Y2

Thank you
Lukmanul Hakim (kim-kim)

Looks awesome. Will probably be my first GMK set. Have you considered having the legends on the modifiers as text only?

Have you considered having alternative legends for the modifiers (i.e. 'sudo' 'mkdir' 'grep' 'apt-get' etc.)?

Wow, that's a good idea. I'll apply it later

WS1 is very a bright white. L9 would match your render better and also the Pantone colors.

Hmm, I see. But, according to the design pattern, the Ubuntu logo font must be white.
Maybe I'll make L9 on every white here except the Ubuntu logo.

I'm not a big fan anymore of super high contrast themes, sincerely I like a little bit more gmk monkey, which can be mixed with gmk 9009 for example.

More logos, for example the purple enterprise logo is nice.

But... what?  No. Ubuntu Mate is the only reasonable Ubuntu variant and it uses a green-and white colour scheme ...

Well, I think make the white (except the logo) become CP or L9 (but I see L9 seems too yellow).
The purple one is include already on this set.

Unfortunately I only get a permission to use the original Ubuntu logo :(

All modifier keys would look better in Light or Mid Aubergine colour.  I am not huge fan of orange.

Ran an IC for something pretty similar https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=88171.msg2380865#msg2380865, which eventually morphed into the set I have in my signature. Best of luck on your Ubuntu run!

Ah, I forgot to add them  :))

Thank you

All modifier keys would look better in Light or Mid Aubergine colour.  I am not huge fan of orange.

Should I make two of them, or make a poll for that?

Yeah, I saw that right after open this IC. Hope we can make a group buy!

Yeah, I've considered to use CP or L9 for the white

Well, maybe after this IC becomes GB, I'll make it for SA or DSA. I don't know about XDA.

Still awesome, few more suggestions:

  • 1u backspace, for people with HHKBs and split backspaces
  • The 1.5u R2 backspace has a gap between the Back and Space, be careful sending the render as is
  • You should add 3 blanks for people with ISO layouts to go near the ISO enter and beside the shortened shifts (in case people don't want to use legends).
  • The windowed keys as mentioned before by Puddsy.
  • Text-based 'up'/'down'/'right'/'left' would also be aces.

Looking good! For vendors, can I recommend Massdrop, Originative or Keyclack? Theyíre all proven in the community (some donít have a lot of love for Massdrop, but itís good for bringing in large numbers).

Yeah, Massdrop is my dream vendor, but I think Massdrop has tight Group Buy QA so it's hard to get them run this GB.
But, who knows? We'll see later :D

If you're looking for a vendor then I may be interested. I've maintained a love/hate relationship with many distros since high school, Ubuntu and its variations included, and I do dig the colorscheme. Plus I have a good working relationship with Christoph of GMK due to months of work involved with GMK Coniferous. I'm no Massdrop, but I can almost guarantee fewer delays :P

For Tux modifier, I will contact the maker for the permission first, then I can decided where I should put the Tux.

But now that I've seen this, I can't help longing for a Ubuntu MATE set with calming green-gray-white colors.
