    [SOLVED] Questions about Usplash and Startup Manager on 1280x800 monitor

    Hello all,

    I have installed Startup Manager with a bunch of .so files to customize my usplash.

    My laptop screen is 1280x800, which isn't listed in the options of SUM. Therefore, whenever I change the usplash (even the default Ubuntu one), my screen is all extended or worse, the splash is not centered.

    So my questions are:

    1. Is there a way to set a 1280x800 resolution? I tried setting usplash.conf, but it didn't change anything

    2. Do I need to edit Grub? If so, what is the VGA code for this 1280x800 resolution?

    3. Is there anything else I could do?

    apparently 1280x800 is not a vesa mode (seriously... I was curious about this,too, but it's just not there!), so you'll have to settle for either vga=792 or vga=795, which will give you 1024x768, or 1280x1024, respectively.

    If you want to get your hands dirty you could try uvesafb. It will require a kernel rebuild and an initrd but it should be able to set a resolution of 1280x800.
