How To: Correct usplash image size for Elyssa

Postby Steely on Fri Jun 20, 2008 11:47 am

Depending on the resolution and size of your monitor the usplash image with Elyssa may not fill the whole screen during boot. Usplash is the screen that shows the progress during the boot process. This has been tested and works for my lcd with a native resolution of 1280x1024.

Open Terminal and enter the following

gksu gedit /etc/usplash.conf

Change the xres setting to xres=800 and the yres setting to yres=640 and then save the file and close.

From the terminal enter the following

sudo update-initramfs -u

Restart the computer.

It may take a few attempts with different resolutions if it does not work right away.

Worked great here on Mint 6 Main Edition. Tested in several resolutions, from 800x600 to 1280x1024, everything went fine.

thank you, finally the usplash fits to the screen. 8)
