    First, press Alt+F2, then type xterm in the text box, then press Enter.
    Now do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libusplash-dev build-essential libbogl-dev
    then press Enter. Enter your password if prompted.
    Say Y, then let apt-get do it's work.
    Now use your favorite graphics program to make a PNG the size of your monitor, at least 256 colors (GIMP can do this, so does Kolourpaint).
    Then do this in the xterm:
    Code:
    pngtousplash yourimagefile.png > yourusplash.c
    gcc -I/usr/include/usplash -I/usr/include/bogl -o yourusplash.o -fPIC -c yourusplash.c
    gcc -shared -Wl,-soname,usplash-artwork.so yourusplash.so -o yourusplash.so
    sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/usplash/
    sudo cp yourusplash.so /usr/local/lib/usplash
    sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-artwork.so usplash-artwork.so /usr/local/lib/usplash/yourusplash.so 55
    # select your usplash here after typing this command then pressing enter:
    sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-$(uname -r)
    Long, I know...

    Try substituting "xterm" for "konsole" or "gnome-terminal".

    How do you come up with all these commands? For me most of them look like mummbojumbo
