    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    Hello. I have previously used Splashly but I have reformatted and am thinking about using UPower seeing as how it is the succesor to Splashy.

    I was looking on KDE-Look and found an awesome Splash screen but I don't think it was designed specifically for Splashly/UPower. here is then link to the splash screen. If someone could direct me what color settings and what x,y,z positions I should have to use this with UPower I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    Oh and I really appreciate all the hard work the devs have put into Splashy/UPower and I hope it will be included by default with Breezy.

    It worked perfectly.

    Btw, it does seem to slow up my bootup by about 5 seconds or so but nothing extreme.

    Along with the new grub splash I got elsewhere my Ubuntu no longer has the jarring text to graphics shift it used to.

    Thank you original poster.

    The work on splashy is much appreciated.

    I hope this makes it into the new version along with the Bootup Manager (for choosing services) and smeg (for editing the menu).
    are u using splashy or upower? I suggets you install upower!

    Newbie question on how to change upower theme

    I have a question about how to change the UPower theme:

    I followed the example in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UPower ,
    so now the symbolic link "theme" in /etc/upower/ leads to ubuntusplashy instead of default.

    However, I'm still getting the default penguin. What could be wrong?

    I have rebooted a few times since I made the change, but the ubuntusplashy image still wont show up.

    Are you sure that the theme now points to the ubuntusplash?
    Here you can see how it was before and how it should look after!

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    Yes, that's how it looks for me too:

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2005-07-30 15:52 theme -> ubuntusplashy
    drwxr-xr-x 2 troeng troeng 4096 2005-07-30 15:30 ubuntusplashy

    I did solve the problem temporarily by re-naming the files

    (sudo mv default default_old
    sudo cp -r ubuntusplashy default)

    which gives me the ubuntusplashy image, though I get the ordinary ubuntusplashy background instead of the ubuntusplashy shutdown background when i shut down.

    EDIT: Sorry, I did just check my config.xml file, which said
    <boot>/etc/upower/default/background.jpg</boot>
    <shutdown>/etc/upower/default/shutdown.jpg</shutdown>
    <errorimg>/etc/upower/default/error.jpg</errorimg>

    The problem is solved.
    Thanks for the help.

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    I tryed them both- splashy & upower. None of them worked. Both gives me the green percentage text on boot up, but no picture. After long hours of messing around I had enough and removed any splash loader packages. Now, I still have the green percentage text when booting my system, How's that possible?

    Aero-z

    You have to purge the upower and splashy packages use synaptic to do that looking in the Custom package section or do:
    sudo apt-get --purge remove upower splashy . And you will not see any green text.

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    OK, I totally removed UPower and then installed it again. I didn't change any settings just to be shore not to screw up things. And as I thought, it still didn't work. First I tried different vga values 792, 791, 790. Every time I get "You have passed undefined mode number", also I've tried vga=normal. After that I get Starting upower for bootup... and no picture only green percentage texts 10%, 20% etc.. I don't know what to do anymore, do you?

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    it seems that your framebuffer is not setted properly.
    First remove upower, do sudo apt-get --purge remove upower
    then edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst look for the kernel image that you are using and add "vga=791" at the end of kernel line.
    If you get the same error, do less /prov/fb and lspci and paste the results.
