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.

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.

Why don't you make one version of this for Ibex? Congratulations, your usplash should be standard or at least an option by default on Ubuntu versions.

Something has changed about usplash management in intrepid ibex. I have to recompile the splash screen to use it again.
I really like you colored splash screens,
Can you upload the source please ? I will be able to compile it and use it on ibex.

Can you provide the source of this package? I really like its colors and I'd like to make a debian usplash from it.

knorrsuppe,

You recently recompiled version .7 of your blue splash screen. It works perfectly on my system.

Version .4 is giving me the test feed that I saw in the old version .7.

Can you recompile this one as well? Thanks.

I think the link to the big version isn't working, maybe you can fix it. Also, I updated my wallpapers with a 1600x1200 version, I hope this can help you with supporting non-wide resolutions.
