Description:

my first attempt, works fine for me on both Gutsy and Hardy. just unzip it and copy the .so somewhere and point startup-manager at it...sorry but i only included 800x600 and 1024x768. I'm just learning, gimme a break...the artwork is with the permission of, and props to the genius of, Sven Geier.

Really cool,

I like it, plus bonus points since it is my wife's favourite...

Just a comment, I'm not sure about progress bar, it looks a bit graysh...but maybe it is just me being pedantic...

I was thinking about creating my own splash theme, I tried to google for a nice how-to or a guide but I could not find anything, is there anything you recommend??

Thanks again

keep up the good work

The text color is specified in the C file. They correspond to the color pallete index of the image. Hope that helps some.

It does work with
sudo usplash -c -x 800 -y 600

although when sending usplash_write messages to it, it looks pretty ugly. The colors from the eft-theme.c example as well as text box placement need adjusted.

Isn't there a way to edit my comments after posting? :(

i am in TOTAL agreement over the text colors. I am looking into how to adjust the colors to my own specifications. but all i have found so far is to adjust the colormap of the image itself. and that seems to mess up the whole image. any help in this area would be appreciated.

Provide the source code along with it, might help.

I copied the .so to /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-kubuntu.so

and then did
sudo usplash -c

and all I get is a blank screen. Did you make sure the image was 256 colors/8 bit? The image you have posted looks pretty intense.

i had the same issue during testing. in order to get it to work i had to specify the resolution in grub as octal value. i.e., for 1024x768...rather than vga=791, vga=0x0318. hope that helps..but like i say i am just learning
