Description:

A dark OpenOffice splash for people who like the default one but dislike the colours.


Ubuntu users: Copy file as root into /usr/lib/openoffice/program/ and restart OpenOffice.

--Optional: complementary progress bar colour (instead of default blue)--

Open /etc/openoffice/sofficerc as root and change the progress bar colour to:
ProgressBarColor=220,220,220


Sorry, can't help with installation on other distros - not a Linux expert.

Just to let everyone know where Mandriva stores these files:

Mandriva Free 2010.2 32bit / Mandriva One 2010.2
/usr/lib/ooo/program/
files:
openabout_mandriva.bmp
openintro_mandriva.bmp

Mandriva Free 2010.2 64bit
/usr/lib64/ooo/program/

Same file names. I was not able to get my progress bar to display on this, but I don't really care, this splash screen is only up for 2.5 seconds before OO loads. Hope this helps all Mandriva GNOME users!

Great Splash! Looks great!

Works perfect with Fedora as well!

Copy it over: /usr/lib/openoffice.org/program/intro.bmp

For changing loading bar color, make similar changes in: /usr/lib/openoffice.org/program/sofficerc:

ProgressBarColor=220,220,220
