Good job Tim. :) Lots of great ideas coming out around here :)

Thanks for making these, this is the fist time I can remember seeing grub splash screens posted in the forum. Thanks for creating these!


Thank you very much :D
If you know its simple - only a little work. I'm right now running Felicia and I use virtualbox and install another Felicia. :)
Then with the nice Gnome - Tool from my panel I took screen-pictures.
To install in ‘Elissay’ the most easy way is to make the directory GRUB in ETC
Code: Select all
sudo mkdir /etc/grub

then you copy all nice boot-screens you can get into this directory :D
Code: Select all
sudo copy /path/where/you/download/jernaulogo-tim.message /etc/grub/

in the file /boot/grub/menu.lst you change [in ‘Elyssa’ and ‘Felicia’ you will find]
the line to :::
gfxmenu=/grub/jernaulogo-tim.message
If you like another screen you only change the filename here :)

Backup always good idea :::
Code: Select all
sudo cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst-backup

to change :::
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst


I'm happy you like my stuff but the most work did jernau. He make so nice wallpapers.
Zwopper also [the transparent one and the stripes!] and there are a lot more. [I use gWallpapers to change my every 10 min. 8) ]

cordial saludos
Tim (and sorry for my english I'm a “Kraut” :mrgreen: ]
Be kind- edit your post topics to show they are solved and thank the people who helped. :)

Clem still hasn't said anything about the 're-imagining' or the new logo, which I'm taking to be a sign that he's not convinced. Well, I may be biased, but I continue to believe that the mint leaf logo has potential... and I don't want to give up on it just yet, so...

Logo v2:

In use:

What do people think?

it is an improvement on the typography. I think you are right to keep polishing - it's all excellent though :)

You and sputty01 (plus others) have left me no choice but to have an automatic desktop changer as choosing 1 desktop picture is now impossible.

I think, jernau, that your mint leaf is a perfect logo for this distro.

I have copied the wallpapers and logo.

@Jernau
For the moment we have no answer from Clem (or have i missing something?), how much he like or hate the new/other Logo, so i ask you, have you send him already a e-mail?? or a e-mail to Husse? if it his important Husse will send the message to the private mail from Clem.
Sorry for my BAD English!!

I emailed Clem about my Linux Mint 6 proposal in November, but unfortunately I haven't received a reply (presumably because he's been busy moving house / preparing Felicia).

I'm a little surprised that Clem hasn't at least dropped by this thread with a comment; especially because most of the new wallpapers are being created with a variation of the new logo (i.e. we could all be wasting effort if there's no plan to switch).

I'm a big fan of the Emerald theme Radial. :)

Aw, I'm sad to see this thread died out. I love the leaf logo. It really makes the "from freedom came elegance" make sense. I like the current logo (except for the shaded line), but I really think the leaf is classy. Even if nothing comes of it, great job.
