Usplash's arch theme

Hi all,

After installing the new usplash package for arch, I got into the customization tutorial from the ubuntu wiki, and came with a little draft for an archlinux theme.

Here it is :

http://s149046517.onlinehome.fr/usplash-theme-arch.so

After installing it I had to regenerate my init image, as I had still the ubuntu theme appearing at first stage of boot.

I cannot make an actual screenshot, but here's the background used, you cannot see the text or the progress bar but you can get the overall look.
I tried to 'keep it simple' in the arch way   smile


It's not finished yet I have some thing to fix yet, and right after I think I'll post a PKGBUILD on Aur. So comments are welcome. wink

As far as I understood, usplash uses the color palette from the background image. For instance I edited it in the Gimp.
For using a specific color in the .c source I just took the Hex value from the background image palette.

James, I'm not sure how to mod the PKGBUILD to adapt it to my theme. Should I link to source directory or provide directly the .so file with the package like you've done with ubuntu one ?

Also how can we configure usplah to choose a specific then ?

Re: Usplash's arch theme

arkanoid would you test my theme? i need to see if it works on others pcs  roll  i'm happy with what i got and i've created a 1024x768 theme (other resolutions will follow).
I guess adding vga=791 to your kernel line will do the trick if you don't have it already.

The theme is here www.spookykid.net/extra/usplash-theme-arch.so.tar.gz
This is just a working-preview  wink

Re: Usplash's arch theme

I installed http://www.spookykid.net/extra/usplash- … .so.tar.gz
and rebooted. It worked. :-)
But the background is too light.
spookykid, could you make the background a bit darker?
