This is an awesome splash screen

However, when I installed it on Ubuntu 9.04 it works but does verbose mode over the screen when it's just doing it normal.

Also, when I do switch to verbose mode there is no picture.

Any help?

this howto is only for silent mode. if you have got verbose image, you must patch your kernel (patch name: fbcondecor).


font name is Tempus Sans, you've got right Piotrek
