Bootscreen changer

Postby userex on Thu Jan 18, 2007 8:56 am

It would be nice to have a GUI application that helps you change the boot splash screen easily.

You can try this...

http://blogs.ubuntu-nl.org/dennis/2006/ ... h-usplash/

or Start Up Manager

http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=295524

I have tried the latter but wasn't quite happy with it as it doesn't let me hide some kernels in the GRUB menu nor can I rename them. Changing Bootsplash worked sometimes and sometimes, it dint!! I felt its still an alpha.

May be you ca give the other one a try and give us your feedback

Thank you for your reply. I tried Usplash Switcher now and I managed to change the splash screen using it. I found a deb if you want to try it out: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=278301&page=2&highlight=usplash-switcher

I tryed this usplash changer and I tryed "update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so" and they didn't work. All I got by removing the theme bea was nothing there.

the latter I got this

There are 5 alternatives which provide `usplash-artwork.so'.

Selection Alternative
-----------------------------------------------
1 /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-bianca.so
*+ 2 /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-kubuntu.so
3 /usr/lib/usplash/edubuntu-splash.so
4 /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-ichthux.so
5 /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-ubuntu.so
Press enter to keep the default[*], or type selection number: 1
Using `/usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-bianca.so' to provide `usplash-artwork.so'.

is there a gedit command or something?

Userex, thanks for the link. Will try that.

I think a mintStartup(like SUM) will be a good idea. It can be a GUI to change the default GRUB options like timeout etc and may be install and switch splash screens!!

What say??

Usplash Switcher didnt work for me. It does show all the available bootscreens, but nothing happens when I select them.
