I've been using the fingerprint usplash theme found here http://u-fingerprint.sourceforge.net/ on ubuntu hardy with no problems. After upgrading to intrepid however, the theme no longer works. I have completely removed it and reinstalled using the instructions in the readme. However, nothing displays on startup or shutdown, only the verbose, text-only boot info. The default ubuntu usplash theme works just fine, so it's not a usplash problem, so it's specific to the theme, so has anyone gotten this successfully working? I'm using version 0.1 stable for amd64 on intrepid 64-bit. Thanks
I tried running usplash from terminal and it returns the following error
usplash: can't get console font: Invalid argument
usplash: No usable theme found for 1024x768
screen init failed
This is strange because part of the installation instructions for the fingerprint theme explicitly say to set the resolution to 1024x768. Also strange is that I get this error even when I have the default ubuntu splash screen selected, although that splash works when starting up and shutting down. Odd...
After doing some research, I realized that the command vga=791 in the menu.lst meant 1024x768 16-bit (I don't believe the instructions indicated the bit-depth, just the resolution, I had it set at 24-bit). However, after properly setting that, now my screen hangs at a black screen that says "Starting..." ...only it never does start
anybody know if this problem is with usplash, intrepid, or just the theme itself?
I'm going to try the latest alpha version to see if there's any change.
