Sorry I tried it but I can't view the "verbose mode" in the area. How can I do this? I followed all the readme.

eheh NP ... thank you!

In a few days I'll try it also on debian unstable and stable (not testing I'm sorry) and I'll let you know if it runs correctly or not but i believe so as they have the same usplash version of Ubuntu feisty and gutsy.

btw, you wrote that you have tested it on dapper and edgy, but have you tested in feisty? What I have just noticed from the forum is that many ppl can't change the usplash theme.

I had problems installing it, until I decided to download the source and compile it.

So, as a warning to all AMD64 users, I'd like to point out that these binaries only work on i386.

For those of you that have problems:
1. Download the Source.
2. Extract it to your desktop.
3. Download startup manager http://www.getdeb.net/app.php?name=Startup+Manager

If libusplash-dev is not already installed type this into a terminal:
sudo apt-get install libusplash-dev

To compile,
copy this into a terminal:
cd ~/Desktop/comptus/;make clean; make

To install, just use Start-up manager go into the second tab, and click "manage usplash theme", and add the file "usplash-theme-elegante.so" to the theme list.
