Changing Ubuntu Bootsplash

sudo apt-get install startupmanager

Be sure to set the resolution to 1024×768.

Add the ***.so file under Manage usplash themes (Downloaded from GNOME Look)


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 1440×900 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.
