This is a Usplash created to match my Clearlooks/Murrine/Nodoka/Compact-Colors themes. I borrowed some inspiration from the fedora splash, and added clearlooks progressbars.
It's my first Usplash theme. Please report any problems!
As usual, there are brave (blue), human (orange), wise (green), wine (red) and dark color variations!
It's a modification of the default usplash in Ubuntu Hardy. It supports the following resolutions:
640x480 800x480 800x600 1024x600 1024x768 1280x800 1280x1024 1440x900 1680x1050 1920x1200.
Note: Screenshot previews are just pasted together in gimp.
I've included packages for i386, x64 and the sources for those that have other architectures and need to compile it.
I've only tested it in Ubuntu Hardy, but I imagine it should work with other distros.
This is the most user-friendly method:
sudo apt-get install startupmanager
Add any of the *-ubuntu.so files under manage usplash themes. Make sure you choose the right one for your pc;s architecture. If you don't use widescreen, select your optimal resolution in startupmanager and you're done. If you do use widescreen, read below:
Startup Manager doesn't support widescreen, so after you have selected the desired theme, do the following:
sudo apt-get install hwinfo
sudo hwinfo --framebuffer
Look for your optimal resolution in 24bits.
Write down the corresponding mode #.
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
Look for the following line:
# defoptions=quiet splash
Change the vga parameter like this:
# defoptions=quiet splash vga=0x0369
(0x0369 is for 24-bit 1680x1050 in my laptop)
Save, and run the following command:
Edit the following file:
sudo gedit /etc/usplash.conf
Change to your resolution, save, and run the following command:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure usplash

**If you have a widescreen display, and hwinfo does not output widescreen resolutions, this means your video card does not support widescreen framebuffers at boot. If so, try using a newer video card.
If you must vote down, or if there is something you dislike about the theme, let me know so I can work harder on improving it!
