Sunset Usplash (Colors) Usplash Themes

Hi and very sorry you can't get it to work. Although the example theme on which this one is based was clearly written for 1024x768, the point I made in my description was that, strangely enough, it works perfectly for me on a 1280x800 widescreen laptop with no adjustments necessary. As youve obviously now discovered its NOT working for you on a monitor it SHOULD be working on LOL.

BTW, until the last two days, ie since I saw your comment, I had never tested it on any other resolution but 1280x800 - that's why I included the source so anyone who wanted to try it with another res could compile their own. You will see that Ive now updated the theme to include more resolutions. But Im not confident this one will work for you either Im afraid.

The reason I say that is as follows. Since I saw your comment I've spent literally hours compiling and trying different configurations of this theme on two Samsung monitors - slightly different models but the same native res of 1280x1024. I can't get the theme to work on one of them at all. I can get it to work on the other one with boot splash res set to 800x600 in startup-manager (this is the only setting that will show the usplash) and usplash res of 800x600 in /etc/usplash.conf (this one is necessary to get the shutdown usplash to display properly). BUT the image looks pretty crap on the screen.

I'm starting to think this depends as much on the capabilities of the monitor as on the usplash settings. On this 1280x1024 monitor, ie the one where it works, if I set the boot splash res to anything above 800x600 in startup-manager, when I reboot I'm told the resolution isn't available and I'm given a list of resolutions which only goes up to 800x600. I think my monitor just doesn't have the capability to go any higher in boot mode.

I know thats not been much help. Try the new one and do try every available setting in startup-manager before giving up. Oh and make sure any time you change the settings in /etc/usplash.conf you run

sudo dpkg-reconfigure usplash

Good luck and please let me know how you get on. If no joy I'll try with different source code (I get exactly the same behaviour with the "original" smooth theme on which this one is based on all my machines).
