Usplash Themes
Description:

Chrome-new is the same theme of my chrome usplash theme with modification.
this usplash is an adaptation of the Wallpaper BlackChrome. Author: silence07 Licence :GPL
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/BlackChrome?content=58586

Y use the code of Hardy-Colors Usplash to add new resolution.
Thank to perfectska04 to licenced the theme Hardy-Colors Usplash to GPL licence.

I change the color of progressbar and size. the look style is better (I think).

Supported resolution:

640x480
800x480
800x600
1024x600
1024x768
1280x800
1280x1024
1440x900
1680x1050
1920x1200.

Work with intrepid and 386 architecture and x64 architecture.

Instalation: (copy/past to Hardy-Colors Usplash description)
This is the most user-friendly method:

sudo apt-get install startupmanager

Add any of the *-ubuntu.so files under manage usplash themes. Make sure you choose the right one for your pc;s architecture. If you don\'t use widescreen, select your optimal resolution in startupmanager and you\'re done. If you do use widescreen, read below:

Widescreen
Startup Manager doesn\'t support widescreen, so after you have selected the desired theme, do the following:

sudo apt-get install hwinfo
sudo hwinfo --framebuffer

Look for your optimal resolution in 24bits.
Write down the corresponding mode #.

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Look for the following line:
# defoptions=quiet splash

Change the vga parameter like this:
# defoptions=quiet splash vga=0x0369
(0x0369 is for 24-bit 1680x1050 in my laptop)

Save, and run the following command:
sudo update-grub

Edit the following file:
sudo gedit /etc/usplash.conf

Change to your resolution, save, and run the following command:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure usplash

I followed your instructions to the letter, but nothing happened. Well, actually at one point my Screen went Black on my Monitor and I had to reboot. But nothing is working the way it should be. I don't see any Splash Screen. And the Splash Screen Preferences shows no Splash Screens installed.

I am amazed that so many other people were able to figure out what you were talking about, and actually get it to work. Because it seems to me your instructions are extremely vague, and lacking a whole lot of details. Otherwise I would not be typing this now. At this point I am more worried that following your Instructions may have done more damage than good. In which case then I have to worry about trying to undo the Damage this may have caused.

Hi,

I have an "old" Dell XPS gen 2 laptop with Geforce 6800 ultra CG and a widescreen, but hwinfo doesn't return me widescreen resolutions : the highest it returns is 1600x1200, whereas my screen's best is 1920x1200...
any idea how can I get this resolution's mode # ?

Thank's anyway for this nice splash screen :)
