The white area will be visible on your display, the 4 black rows at the bottom will not but have to be included.

For the next step you will need to install GD bindings for pearl. The Ubuntu package is called libgd-gd2-perl.

As soon as you have finished your drawing, use to img2lcd.pl converter located at /tools/image/ in the source repository to convert your picture.

The resulting file will be called “<yourimagename>.lcd”. Copy that file to your badges flash memory and rename it to “nick.lcd”.

Now you can let your r0ket display that image instead of your nickname.
