I'm new in linux and are not experienced. I hope this works for everybody.

Usplash description and HOWTO customize:

The combination of the original wallpaper, GDM Theme, Login Startup Splash and the Grub Usplash Splash Theme is excelent.

"Sleek and Sporty" wallpaper is by Dragonkahn:

"Sleek Dragon" GDM Theme is by Potemkin:

"Sleek Dragon splash" Login Startup Splash is by Kunsel:

You have to install the (Package usplash).

The easiest way to manage usplash themes is to use (Package sum) "Start-Up Manager"

To do it manually without (sum) the "Start-Up Manager":
Open the terminal were this file has benn extracted. And Type:
"sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/usplash/"

"sudo cp /usr/local/lib/usplash/"

"sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/lib/usplash/ /usr/local/lib/usplash/" 55"

"sudo update-alternatives --config"

"sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-$(uname -r)"

Is it perhaps possible to compile a .so file for AMD64 pc's? Both versions if it's no trouble, since i want to try out both themes. With these files I get an error saying no appropriate theme was found for 1024x768 etc. Installed it through SUM, worked for the fingerprint theme, the only one I found with an AMD64 .so file. Thanks in advance!

PS: I have all the other Sleek Dragon stuff installed, it rocks :)

Usplash is a software project in the Ubuntu community. Historically, scrolling text "verbose mode" has typically appeared on Linux computers during boot. Usplash replaces the scrolling-text screens with a graphical splash screen. Wikipedia
