View Full Version : [ubuntu] Usplash

May 2nd, 2008, 03:15 AM
Heh, I forgot after doing a clean upgrade that chances are my usplash would get messed up again and now it has. I remembered how to get the resolution fixed but I can't get the colors working right! :( I have looked all over the internet for a solution for most of the day and I'm getting fed up with this. Does anyone know how to get my usplash to look right when booting? Thank you.

When you said the usplash color is not working right, what exactly do you mean? Is it read instead of brown? Grey? Unexpected color stripes? A photo snapshot might be easier, if it is difficult to explain.

Sorry this took a while, here's the pic:

If you look at the pic you'll notice the colors are off. Maybe it needs to have more colors ? Not sure how to do that though :/

You probably need to increase the colors from 8bit to 16bit. Startup-Manager is what I use to configure that stuff. It's in the repos.

I tried installing that but when I run startupmanager I get this:

grub-probe: error: /boot/grub/device.map:1: Bad device name
Grub2 detected
Usplash detected
Splashy not detected
File /boot/grub/grub.cfg does not exist.

So i need to change the color to 16 bit, anyone have a working solution? I know there's a way to do it manually without startup manager (which isn't working). Thanks.
