Sorry there's no screenshots - the images are only just above the 300KB limit :(

This is the green ("Wise") variant of Arc-Colors4GRUB, part of a matching set of wallpapers optimised for use in GRUB derived from the excellent Arc-Colors wallpapers by perfectska04.

They are meant to be used in conjunction with Shiki-Colors or at least Arc-Colors, to give the whole theme more consistency as your operating system loads up.

The idea is, from the moment you hit the GRUB menu, you're experiencing Shiki-colors already.

NB You will need the StartUp-Manager program to install this background. It should be in the repositories of your distribution. It's not entirely a one-trick pony because you can also use it to tidy up the GRUB menu, change security, menu countdowns etc. which may be quite useful to you. Also note that StartUp-Manager may only be restricted to Ubuntu.

I am working on a .xpm.gz edition which does not require StartUp-Manager.

Questions, comments, suggestions? Please put them in the comments box below. If it's related to the parent wallpapers or theme, please post your responses to their creator in the relevant comments sections. I am "downstream" from Arc-colors, as it were, and cannot really change something you don't like upstream!

Apologies in advance for any erratic updating - my free time varies wildly.

 very good funds GRUB

hello, must show an image but an unloading blind. My advice would be.
1 did not put the file *.cxf because it is not the master, and this in a single layer
2 offers for download the file in *.xpm.gz
3 as a sample image saved as *.jpg file *.xpm (users will know the quality of work)
greetings .........

I am slightly at a loss as to what you mean.

This is what I think you said:

Unloading blind... don't know what that is. Even Google doesn't know what that is... hmm...

1. Really sorry but I don't understand at all.

2. Instead of .tar.gz, the files should be in a .xpm.gz archive. Can't do unless you can point me to a nice, easy GUI tool that will zip up the image as .xpm.gz. Then I will happily do it :)

3. Make a .jpg out of the images to put up as a preview. Can do.

Using Startup manager and pointing it to the .xpms in the extracted folders seems to work fine. I didn't try and venture beyond this method because, well, it worked :P

 SORRY: I used Google traslator

hello, what I want to sey is:
1- Is not necesary ofer *.xcf (GIMP) file format, if you want you can put it in :http://www.gimpstuff.org/
2- the best is to put an image *.jpg just like GRUB starter manager will shaw you, for this only you have to convert the *.xpm file in *.jpg (save as). So users can knew the image will be before download it.
3- Unless I am mistaken, GRUB images must be of a size of 640x480, with a palette of 14 colors and be in *.xpm.gz. Format (href=http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/~mcgrof/grub-images/). From GIMP when you save the file, name and then put the *.xpm.gz, for example: archivo.xpm.gz

All this is only a suggestion, greetings....

I offered the .xcf in case anybody wanted to edit the original image files. If you open the xpm, edit it and save to another xpm, the quality might be lower than if you use the .xcf of the original file.

Normally that wouldn't matter, but at these low resolutions and low colour depths, every pixel counts. Especially when high-res displays are enlarging all the pixels in an already ugly manner.

Using Startup Manager, you only need to give it a .xpm and it can do the magic by itself. It doesn't need .xpm.gz files. In fact, I don't even know if it can use them. It's only if you circumvent startup manager, and you're doing it manually, that you must feed GRUB a .xpm.gz. If I can produce a version for the manual users (masochists?) I will. In the meantime I will stick a notice up saying "you need startup manager to use this".

It's a shame that the Usplash screens are out of date. Otherwise we'd be looking at a completely coherent alternative to the default distro skin.
