Hi. I wanted to try using this splash screen on my asus eeepc, which has ubuntu-eee. The screen size is 640x480. as it was said in the readme i set the boot screen size to 1024x768. Did everything else as you said.. but when i tested it using terminal, i got some lines stating that it can't use the 1024x768, so the screen size will be reduced to 800x600
next line was that it will be reduced to 640x480. In the end when it opened it didn't work properly. Had the same problem when booting. Does it really work with the screen size 640x480, or do I have to blame my pc?

all you need is Start-Up-Manager.
http://ubuntusoftware.info/sum.html (you can find it in "Add/Remove Applications")
install it, open tab "Appearance"
then find the heading Usplash themes and choose your last theme and click close..
easy...

Once the development of your Usplash theme gets a bit less frantic, would you consider adapting some of the Usplash theme (particularly window borders) into, say, a Metacity / XFWM / other theme? It would look quite groovy indeed.

More currently, I'm not sure about the handprint. I think the lines and the windows and such coming off it look cool, but the hand... not so much. It's not exactly relevant to Linux or the distros. Could you offer a different Usplash with something other than the hand, say a distro logo or Tux or a central object (rendered in the sci-fi style blue and white), "being analysed" by the windows coming off it.

I think the changing part of the progress bar should be a little bolder / easier to see, would you agree?

Sometime in the future, you could even animate this. Pull that all off successfully, and I think it would be adopted by most distros as a default Usplash / window manager theme. People liked what they saw in Minority Report (well, maybe not the film, but the theme of the groovy computer system they used). If you can turn it into something more practical, they'll probably love it.

with this splash is there a way to customize what it says. example instead of thank you for choosing linux best os in the world (much agreed) is there a way to put in "log in and die" just an example.

I can't seem to figure out what is happening, so I was hoping someone can help me out. I installed the splashscreen, but there is a big solid black rectangle covering the loading linux on the left side of the finger print hand. How can I fix this? Anyone?

This doesn't have a loading bar when I use it. Instead I have a black rectangle box at the bottom of the screen.

hey dudes!!

Look... I followed every instruction without any errors, but when I write the last command, which is

sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so

It throws this message: There is only 1 program which provides usplash-artwork.so
(/usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-fingerprint.so). Nothing to configure.

AND I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ELSE!! And when I boot again, a black screen appears until the login screen.

Please help!! Thanx in advance ;)
