Description:

DEPRECATED
Sorry. This splash screen is based on usplash, which is deprecated. It won't work on Ubuntu 10.04 or newer.


This is another version of the usplash theme fingerprint, working with the resolution of 1024 * 768.

Why another Version?
All the others did not work on my machine, so I customized the code and the pictures a bit and now it works.

How to install?
Just install the .deb package, install via ppa or compile the source code yourself

This Package is available in my ppa:

https://launchpad.net/~phylu/+archive/usplash-theme-fingerprint

Silent or Verbose?
To use the blue text box (screenshot 2) for some booting messages just delete the "quiet" on the boot entry in you menu.lst.

I found a Bug! What now?
Please leave a comment, with a description of the bug. Also post the boot-entry of your menu.lst, which linux distribution you use, and what version. The version of the fingerprint theme is also important.

PPA has changed!

I have installed this from the deb package and configured many times with the startupmanager with different resolutions and not work yet. The usplash is absent at all, and not have idea what is wrong.

The resolution you have to use is 1024*768

try to deinstall the fingerprint. then reinstall the normal usplash of your system e.g. usplash-theme-ubuntu.
Then install usplash-theme-fingerprint.

I tried to install it from the repository without any luck. Then I tried to go back to my old ubuntu usplash and It is not working either. So reinstalled both usplash and usplash-ubuntu-theme yet it didn't work.

Any idea.

sudo apt-get source from phylu ppa and build your own deb packages with checkinstall or build with pbuilder package for 9.04 from 8.10 or 8.04 source.

love the theme
although for some reason the text box (whatever its called - activated by changing quiet in menu.lst) isnt located in the spot it is shown to be by the second screenshot. it is much larger and off the the right and down a bit. the text is also a different colour but i assume that can be changed in startup manager.

i like having the text because it is nice to see whats happening, also because im not so sure about having "now loading linux, the most advanced operating system" there.

sooo, how can i get it back where it is meant to be?

well it turned out i was running the other version by someone else.
your version doesnt seem to work at all. sudo usplash shows nothing for a few seconds then closes by itself.

any ideas?

ok i have got it working fine.
the only problem is that instead of saying 'Open Minds. Open Source. Open Future' like on your screenshots it says 'Press Alt + F1 for Verbose Mode'

what can i do to change this?

I just got this splash theme working, but I have a small issue. When I shutdown, it seems to inverse the colors of the image. its like I am on LSD.

It works just fine on startup, this issue is just on shutdown.

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit.

I am sorry, but i really have no idea, where i could look to solve this problem.

Have you tried to compile the theme yourself?

The problem is that the backround picture has an resolution of 1280*1024 ad it wasn't made by me. So this is the biggest resolution i can make one. But i think there will be one in the next version

this is the error message( i would show you but i cant find a place to upplaod it at on this reply)

Could not open 'usplash-theme-fingerprint_0.12_i386.deb

The package might be corrupted or you are not allowed to open the file. Check permissions of the file.

Which i did and I have full access to it.
I guess I'll chock it up to another usplash that I cant use, I dont know how to compile it and so far I cant get anyone to give me a how to or tutorial on how to do this.
