This splash is very nice, and fits very well the theme I'm currently using (Elegance, which is mainly a black/blue one).

@radzi

I'm running feisty, but the procedure should be the same even with dapper or edgy.

Go to /usr/lib/openoffice/program
There is a file called intro.bmp, which links to openintro_ubuntu.bmp

You can make a backup of this with this command: sudo mv /usr/lib/openoffice/program/openintro_ubuntu.bmp /usr/lib/openoffice/program/openintro_ubuntu.bmp_backup

Then all you have to do is move the bmp you downloaded to that position, and rename it to openintro_ubuntu.bmp
In order to do this, go to the directory where the bmp is, and then: sudo mv filename.bmp /usr/lib/openoffice/program/openintro_ubuntu.bmp

Sorry for my english, but I'm italian!

how to replace the default splash...?

Report

The default splash "intro.bmp" is located here in Ubuntu 7.04.

/usr/lib/openoffice/program

You simply replace the intro.bmp . Oh, and you need root privileges to do it.

Download the bmp file to your desktop and then go to a terminal window and type the following:

# cd /usr/lib/openoffice/program
# sudo cp intro.bmp intro-backup.bmp
# sudo cp -f ~/Desktop/58642-intro.bmp intro.bmp

That's it. Hope this helps.

This is pretty sweet. The only thing I would suggest is to make the OpenOffice reflection either closer to the actual text, or non-existent. Other than that, it's an awesome splash! :D

I did it this way to keep the reflection on the same level as the globe. (So it doesn't look like they are reflecting on different planes.) because the other way looked odd to me. I'll post the source so everyone can make it the way they would like though. Thats the idea right? :)
