    Looks like I've been bitten by alpha software....
    From the Upower (fork of splashy) wiki :
    nb: in some cases Splashy will start to work after the second or third reboot, it's normal, don't worry.
    Maybe this is your case...

    You should also take at look at this: http://nanofreesoft.org/index.php/Splashy

    BTW. Splashy is now available through debian repositories so use 'apt-get install splashy' instead of these packages.

    We're using Ubuntu (i thought that was clear in a ubuntu forum), so people can't (shouldn't) apt-get debian packages.

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    I don't remember whether I added some extra repositories... After apt-get install it just started installing. Maybe the backports repository?

    Anyway, I'll have to wait until they fix the separate partition /usr/ thing :/

    Re: HOWTO: Bootup splash screen with splashy

    It did not work here. It keep telling me to check for a /etc/default/spalshy (!?) and /etc/splashy/.xml

    It just loaded text mode with a green text telling me "10%, 20%, etc".

    If I tried teh vga=792 thing I'd get an error.

    I have exactly the same problem. Is your /usr/ on a separate partition?
