This is my 1st modification to Ubuntu. I've only been using Ubuntu for the past month. Hope you all like it.
Use as a splash page. Instructions for New Users below
Install though gnome-splashscreen-manager
If that doesn't work try
Applications >> System Tools >> Configuration Editor
(if you don't have that right click Applications >> Edit Menu. Then go to System Tools and check Configuration Manager)
Under Config. Editor go to
apps >> gnome-sessions >> options
on the right side you should see splash_image. RIGHT CLICK >> Edit Key
and put in the location of the saved file.
