I use "startup-manager" to change the usplash & bootloader themes.

I've installed startup-manager but it never wants to load :(

Anybody knows what's wrong?

I can't advise why current version won't launch. I downloaded & installed the .deb for version 0.9-9 & it works just fine.

Sorry, my mistake. I should have said version 1.9.9. Synaptic has vers 1.9.11. It has been a problem not starting for some users. You could try downloading one of the other versions from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... _id=246755 The newest, 1.9.12 may work for you.

merwiz79 gave me these instructions for changing the usplash in Felicia to the mint-black-usplash. Maybe you can adapt these instructions for what you want to use?

sudo apt remove --purge usplash-theme-mint
apt install usplash-theme-mint-black
sudo rm /etc/alternatives/usplash-artwork.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-mint-black.so /etc/alternatives/usplash-artwork.so
sudo rm /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-artwork.so
sudo ln -s /etc/alternatives/usplash-artwork.so /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-artwork.so
sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-2.6.24-22-generic

Here is how to resize the usplash. Steely provided the instructions for this.

gksu gedit /etc/usplash.conf
(In my case I changed the values to 1280x1024)
sudo update-initramfs -u

Hope this helps.

I've tried typing "startupmanager" in terminal and turns out i couldn't run the program because only root has the access to it :(
