Usplash WIP theme preview

After a day of learning how to create a usplash theme this is a semi final screenshot:


The usplash template is based on usplash-smooth and the background is by evenflow. The usplash-smooth package from its PPA is required to be installed for this theme to work. The progress bar timing should be correct from the second reboot on.

The usplash theme supports the following resolutions (both 4:3 and 16:10 in one theme file):

  • 4:3
    • 640_480
    • 800_600
    • 1024_768
    • 1280_960
    • 1600_1200
  • 16:10 (widescreen)
    • 640_400
    • 1024_640
    • 1280_800
    • 1440_900
    • 1680_1050
    • 1920_1200

I have only compiled the theme for amd64 so far and only in one color. They will take me a while to upload too as per color/platform bz2’d is 4.6mb.

Once I fnish installing an x86 guest I will put up both the themes for testing and think about creating the rest of the colour schemes later.

BTW: usplash-smooth is nothing short of what usplash should have been to begin with if you havnt checked it out yet. Even if it does have some downfalls when a boot fails. Cant wait to see plymouth make it into Ubuntu either.
