    HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    This howto will allow you to get a bootup image with progress bar, like the livecd does.
    In this post i'm using my self-made theme. You can make your own or download another, it's up to you!

    Splashy for Ubuntu

    (1) Download latest splashy package from: http://alioth.debian.org/projects/splashy/

    (2) Install the splashy .deb:
    Code:
    $ sudo dpkg -i splashy_0.1.3.svn.2_i386.deb
    (3) Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to add vga=792 (1024x768 millions colors) or vga=791 (1024x768 thousands colors) to your default boot option.
    For example:
    Code:
    title		Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.10-5-k7 Default 
    root		(hd0,0)
    kernel		/vmlinuz root=/dev/hde6 ro quiet splash vga=792
    initrd		/initrd.img
    savedefault
    boot
    See codes table below:

    (4) Download my Ubuntu splashy theme from: http://infinito.f2o.org/downloads/ub...y_theme.tar.gz

    You can get more themes from: http://splashy.alioth.debian.org/themes/

    (5) Untar ubuntu theme:
    Code:
    $ tar xzf ubuntu_splashy_theme.tar.gz
    (6) Copy files to splashy dir:
    Code:
    $ sudo cp -a ubuntu/ /etc/splashy/themes
    (7) Edit splashy config file:
    Code:
    $ sudo mv /etc/splashy/config.xml /etc/splashy/config.xml.old
    $ sudo mv /etc/splashy/themes/ubuntu/config.xml /etc/splashy
    That's all! Next time you reboot your computer you'll see splashy in action!
