use Xubuntu splash in Ubuntu usplash?
I installed ubuntu 9.10, then installed xubuntu desktop. In xubuntu there is a cute splash screen with a mouse running [libxubuntu.so]. It runs between the login screen and the xubuntu desktop. I found the file in /usr/lib/xfce4/splash/engines/libxubuntu.so
[along with another file: libxubuntu.a]
In gnome desktop i used the program startupmanager to set libxubuntu.so as the usplash screen that runs between grub and the xsplash screen; however it did not work. [it showed a box with some colours and some shapes, a bit like a colour options screen on a monitor]
So, i wonder, does anyone know a) why it doesn't work and b) how i might get it to work
[because it is soo cute!]
i suspect that although the xubuntu splash, and usplash files are both .so files, they are infact different types of .so files? [since they run at different times, and the xubuntu splash has a .a file too?
Thanks thanks thanks to anybody who knows about these things
Re: use Xubuntu splash in Ubuntu usplash?
actually, I have tried a few more downloaded usplash screens and they all act the same. only the original ubuntu and xubuntu screens behave appropriately.
[usplash-theme-ubuntu and usplash-theme-xubuntu]
