Ubuntu logo is from standard ubuntu usplash.

The progressbar is animated.


Supported resolutions:

800x600 (big only), 1024x768, 1280x1024 (big only)
1280x800, 1440x900, 1680x1050

Other resolutions might be supported if demanded.

Blue version: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Blue+Ubuntu+Usplash?content=77360

Green version: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Green+Hardy+Usplash?content=78760

Orange version: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Orange+Hardy+Usplash?content=78761

Installation

The following tool is probably the most user-friendly method.

$ sudo apt-get install startupmanager

Be sure to set the resolution to 1024x768.

Add the blue_ubuntu/hardy_usplash.so file under Manage usplash themes

Widescreen

Startupmanager doesn't support those resolutions so you have to do something else.

Start by adding the .so file as previous described. Don't mind the resolution.

$sudo apt-get install hwinfo
$sudo hwinfo --framebuffer

Look for your optimal resolution 24bit.
Remember the mode number of that resolution. (On my system 1440x900 24 bit is mode 0x365)

$sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Look for your kernel, a line like this

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-12-generic xxx ro splash vga=0x365

Change the vga parameter to your framebuffer mode.

$sudo gedit /etc/usplash.conf

Change to your resolution

Hope you enjoy it.

thanks its very nice but I think it would be better if the background of the progress bar would be in a nice color accept white. Anyway could you make an usplash of with my dragon wallpaper? Or explain step by step how to make it? I still don't know how to make it. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for making a different resolution for me :)

It works. It was a little off to the left, but I may just need to adjust my monitor.
