Description:

My first try in usplashs.

Wallpaper:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ubluetu?content=77180

Ubuntu logo is from standard ubuntu usplash.

The progressbar is animated.


Supported resolutions:

800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024
1280x800, 1440x900, 1680x1050

Other resolutions might be supported if demanded.

Installation

The following tool is probably the most user-friendly method.

$ sudo apt-get install startupmanager

Be sure to set the resolution to 1024x768.

Add the blue_ubuntu/hardy_usplash.so file under Manage usplash themes

Widescreen

Startupmanager doesn't support those resolutions so you have to do something else.

Start by adding the .so file as previous described. Don't mind the resolution.

$sudo apt-get install hwinfo
$sudo hwinfo --framebuffer

Look for your optimal resolution 24bit.
Remember the mode number of that resolution. (On my system 1440x900 24 bit is mode 0x365)

$sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Look for your kernel, a line like this

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-12-generic xxx ro splash vga=0x365

Change the vga parameter to your framebuffer mode.

$sudo gedit /etc/usplash.conf

Change to your resolution

Hope you enjoy it.

usplash only supports 4:3 resolutions as far as I know.

640x480
800x600
1024x768
1280x1024

As I suppose 1280x800 is your optimal/max resolution 1024x768 would be the best choice for you.

I myself have a 1440x900 resolution as the optimal

Hmmm...

Just proved myself wrong.
Turns out the 1440x900 resolution indeed is supported by my system. Running a 1440x900 version of the splash now.

I've added a 1440x900 and a 1280x800 version.
