HELP Needed:

Currently I'm working on a completly rewrite of kbootsplash. This will take quite some time.

But I hope kbootsplash will be much better than.

Every Distribution has now it's own class! So I need developers who are willing to help me support their Distribution.

openSuSE is developed by myself but there are so many other distributions out there.

If someone wants to support me, then please contact me!

Hi,

I use Debian and have been waiting for EXACTLY this kind of programme. However, since the last entry is from 2006 I wonder whether it has died? :(

Hi,

I did not had any time for development. But now I'm developing a complete new GUI for KDE4. This GUI will be available as soon as possible and is based on a separate library. If you want a new distribution supported, just the library is to be changed. Maybe its available in summer 2008.

I'm currently rewriting kbootsplash, so that it will be possible to run with other distributions.

Every distri need its own class, so you have to write a class for every distribution.

The GUI is idepentend from the distrisupport.

But I'm unable to write this classes for all distributions.

So If you want to help me, I can send you an UML of the classes, how the should look like and what they have to provide.

It is impossible for me to work alone on this.

I've since discovered why my grub boot screen was missing... kcmbootsplash, althought not installing properly, still made it to the control centre.
Problem is, make uninstall isn't removing the application, and there is no documentation giving direction on how to do so. No search proves fruitful. Nothing in yast, nothing in konqueror and nothing on the website.
Can the author please provide detail instructions on how to remove this from SuSE 10 pls.

Are you sure to have the KDE Development packages installed?

Build with SuSE e.g.

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3

perhaps you have to handle it in such a way

you wrote you haven't try -prefix

but I told you to use

--prefix

you have forgotten one -

it should work fine.

But if you want, tell me your Distribution.

If it is SuSE 10 I can build a rpm package for you.

I've downloaded and run configure successfully but it won't show up in Themes. I've updated themes.
Am I supposed to do something after the configure completes?

My system is running at 1600 x 1200 yet kbootsplash has detected it as 1280 x 1024. And yes I have all the required files for 1600 x 1200 in /etc/bootsplash/themes/SuSE/images. Any ideas as to why the program is not detecting the correct resolution.

I'm sorry, the kbootsplash does not know any resolution higher than 1280x1024.

I have added the support for a lot more resolutions. They will be available in the next version (prehaps in a complete rewrtie with 0.5)

I'm working on it, but have not much time by now.

I'm sorry

With your last version the subdirectory of themes are correctely copied but the parameter THEME is not updated in the /etc/sysconfig/bootsplash file to the theme selected ????? ( SUSE 9.3 )

Circunvention use Yast to correct THEME value

Suggestion :
It's possible to include an option to remove a theme directory..

For information

Hi There
I clicked on downloads but the file is not available...

Could you check if the download section is OK? (Or is it an error of sf.net)

And another request in resolution you can add 1280x800 or better add a blank field so that user can type it and create it for different resolutions...

Regards
-K

The resolutions are depending on the bootsplash theme. Pleseae tell me where to find themes with that resolutions.

If I have such themes to test them I can add more resolutions.

It is impossible to let the user add their own resolution, because they can type resolutions that not exists. And If the use a theme, which does not support the resolution, this theme will not work. Therefore the user will ask me why kbootsplash don't work correctly.

in Slackware 10.1 with KDE 3.4 kbootsplash crashes as soon as it is launched.

Could you please support KDE 3.4, cause it is the latest release! 3.1 is too old.

Report

KDE 3.4 is supported by kbootsplash.

I have tested slackware 10.1 yesterday to find out what your crash problem might be.

And the conclusion of the test is, kbootsplash compiles well with KDE 3.4 and runs well too.

Please specifiy the problem more in detail, because on my system it works well and there is no crash anyway.
