Ubuntu Usplash Smooth


GNOME Splash Screen

Ubuntu Usplash Smooth

Downloads:  16570
Submitted:  Nov 17 2008
Updated:  Nov 20 2008


This is the original Ubuntu Usplash for Intrepid Ibex with an exciting twist!

Now the progress bar is time-based!

What does it means?

The original Ubuntu Usplash progress bar didn't tell you much information.
It moves in small/huge increments, and sometimes stands still for a few seconds.

This Ubuntu Usplash Smooth does it different!

It remembers the time of your previous boot/shutdown, and will smoothly increase the bar according to this time. Since the boot/shutdown times change very little, you will get a very precise bar with a very smooth animation showing exactly how much time is left!

Check it for yourself!

Modesty aside(!), this is how the usplash progress bar should have been done from the beginning!

Easily packaged in a DEB file, you just have to install it, and boot your computer a couple times. The first boot/shutdown will be quite off the mark, of course, since the Usplash Ubuntu Smooth still don't know how much time it will take to complete. But from the second boot/shutdown onwards, you will simply fall in love!

If you hate it for any reason... just uninstall it, and your system will return to the original configuration.



Now you can also get these packages via Ubuntu PPA:

Please vote for this idea to be included in Jaunty in Ubuntu Brainstorm:



Version 0.4:

This is the version you all have been waiting for!

• Now the progressbar will freeze while ubuntu is performing a filesystem check.
And the status progress will be displayed in text below!

• Usplash-smooth now saves the correct boot time even if a filesystem check happens!
No more wrong boot times in the next boot.

• Fix the problem with the start of the animation during boot, that only appeared after the second block of the bar.
Now the animation is smooth since the beginning.

• Improved the package scripts, installation and description.

• Added the function time_elapsed() in libusplash-smooth, to give even more tools for theme creators to perform smooth animations.
Theme creators, version 0.5 will be dedicated for you.
Be prepared to create a smooth version of your theme!


• The usplash themes for kubuntu, xubuntu and edubuntu will be released in the next version.

• Support for freezing the progressbar during user input is still missing.
This will require a few modifications in usplash source code to be done properly.
I'll submit some patches upstream, and ship a patched usplash for Intrepid bundled in a future version.

Please, use it a lot!
And report bugs here, or in the forums!
Version 0.4 packages for Jaunty Alpha 1 will be created soon.

 Not working on 8.04

Looks awesome, but it's not working in my hardy machine. The screen goes blank with no usplash screen.

Do you have any idea about how to fix this?

I really loved this splash screen, but it stopped to work. Now with Ubuntu 9.10, they changed the default splash screen for a fugly thing. I wish I could use this one instead! its the rockiest thing ever and they should make it the official splash!

 usplash intrepid smooth

This is dead. Launchpad help or archive on this usplash dead. 10.04 uses plymouth, impossible to change over. I have emailed the creator...no reply. Too bad. Best ubuntu usplash was original 8.10. I could care less whether it was "smooth." ubuntu can really suck sometimes when they remove "favorites" from distro to distro. Even Gnome sucks for removing orange window border-Human Clearlooks.
