Description:

This is my first ever work posted here...
I just needed a green ubuntu splash that wasn't overly worked on, and since I could not find one anywhere else, I decided I'd do one myself. One thing led to another and now I am posting it here for everyone to share in.
I hope it helps someone else than just me...

-- I am undecided as to whether the distro-independent version should be in more varieties than just blue... Should I include some other colors too?

I know this is late, but for anyone else wondering, here's how to change the splash:
Open Gconf (I personally use Alt+F2 and type in gconf-editor)
Browse to apps->gnome-settings
In there, the splash image directory will be written on the right pane. Change it to point to the theme you wish.
Log out of gnome, log back in, and enjoy!

Thumb up ! Your splash is finally very clean, I'm using it with an "all black" themed desktop, and it absolutely contribute to the "rocking feel".

Thanks a lot !!

There's a little problem with the splash. The image file is not "big" enough to let the text appears clearly during boot. For instance during Nautilus launch, you can clearly see the icon but "Nautilus" text is cut in its middle height, only the half upper part of the text is readable...

Great job otherwise !

My idea was to make the text "disappear" all together, since I thought it was just futile. I guess I didn't live enough shadow on the bottom to hide it in. I don't know if I should leave the text there or make sure it will not be displayed at all. If only I could put it to vote...
Thanks for your input though.

Make the text disappear or show it all ?
Just take one side and go for it !
I think both ideas are good, and they're surely way better than "only a vertical-half is displayed".

If you chose to hide the text I think you should reduce the image height by a few millimeters at the top and the bottom so it won't appear on the splash even if the system still "genrates" it (will it ?).

yes. It will generate it. The idea is to put it on a transparent part of the background, we I do that, I notice the text all but goes away automagically :)

I don't use ubuntu, but just looking at the splash screen it looks great... especially for a first-timer. :-)

Thanks for the comment. I think I'm hooked! I was thinking of doing a distro-independant version, now I can't wait to finish it. :)
