Description:

Hello, Ive found a Windows 7 Bootscreen for Linux.

It looked nice, but its Linux, so there must be a Linux Bootscreen similar like this.

And so finally, Ubuntu Natty was on my Computer, with that, an idea started in my head...


Instead the Lights, use Narwhals, and this is what came out.

Ive created an .deb Package for Easy Use...

Ive just modified the Ubuntu Sunrise .deb package, just tried it, and installation works.

But well, there is a warning, you can ignore it, Its my First .deb Package Ive created :)


So What Ive used was the "Vizta" Script from Charlie Brey's Plymouth Tutorial,the Narwhal .svg's from the Ubuntu Site and the famous Natty narwhal Wallpaper...

The Screenshot is taken from my Youtube Video, sudo plymouth --show-splash won't work actually :D

Yes there is the Youtube Link

What may happen is, when you have 640x480 Resolution, is that the Logo is not fully shown...

Please give me comments if you like it or have suggestions :)

That's easy, just open up a terminal and paste this there inside

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

then choose the default theme, which is called ubuntu-logo . Type in the number and press ENTER:

After that, do this here

sudo update-initramfs -u -k all

And you should have the old one :)

Awesome work man!
I feel like installing natty just to have this plymouth. So bad my natty logs out unexpectedly many times. Tell me if you make a meerkat version ;)

Ah Now I understand, You don't need to install Natty Narwhal... The Theme works on every Ubuntu since 10.04 Lucid, so also on Meerkat :-)

I've tried this Theme in Lucid Lynx, its fine :)

I know but I feel uncomfortable if strange animals are swimming on my bootscreen for no reasons :)
I've just modified the theme so it can fit fot all ubuntu version after 10.04.
Not so cool as the narwhal one but useable.

just installed this and must say its one of the better plymouth boot screens I've seen. You should submit this to the dev team for 11.10!

Thanks, But I think its senseless, 11.10 will be oneiric ocelot, so why put out a Narwhal as Bootscreen? :D

But maybe We could do something with a Ocelot :)
