I got the idea for this from the beautiful Sea GDM theme by Dav87 which uses the same wallpaper - thnx Davide!!!
Davide's GDM theme can be found here:
and the original wallpaper here:
The theme was compiled using the source code for the excellent usplash-smooth usplash theme by volanin which you can find here:
Many thanks to you volanin for your wonderful work :)
Please note that this theme was compiled on Intrepid Ibex and will not work on other versions.
If the theme doesn't work for you straight away, please make sure you try changing your resolution settings in startup-manager and /etc/usplash.conf. For example, I have the theme running on three Intrepid Ibex systems as follows:
Laptop (native 1280x800): startup-manager 640x480; usplash.conf 1280x800
Monitor 1 (native 1280x1024): startup-manager 1024x768; usplash.conf 1024x768
Monitor 2 (native 1280x1024): startup-manager 800x600; usplash.conf 800x600
Monitors 1 and 2 are almost identical Samsung models, but it appears that Monitor 2 doesn't allow resolutions of greater than 800x600 during boot (boot-up halts and I'm presented with a list of available resolutions, the largest of which is 800x600;32 bit).
I hope you enjoy this theme. All comments, criticizers and scoffers welcome :)

Fixes problem where the theme was not displayed on some systems. Thanks to flysand and Apprenti for drawing the problem to my attention and for their patience and assistance in getting it fixed. Thanks also go to Phylu for his assistance with the code ;)
Please note that you do not need this update if your theme is working properly, but it shouldn't do any harm if you choose to install it anyway.
Added an option to have the progress bar with minimalistic shading (for those of you who don't like the totally clean version). Just download "usplash-theme-sea-shd.so".
After people were having problems I've recompiled the theme with more resolutions included and it seems to work better. But make sure you try changing your res settings in startup-manager and /etc/usplash.conf if it doesn't work for you at first.
This version of the theme also has a new progress bar - slightly smaller and clean colors. Hope you like it.
Includes better (ie slightly more subtle - I'm no artist) work on the reflection. Sorry the first one was so wick!!!
