dark-swarm (XSplash)

This is a theme for ubuntu's xsplash boot-screen - it should be a welcome change for those who don't use a brown color scheme! (you need ubuntu 9.10, or a distro using xsplash to use this theme)

None of this art is my original work - the animation is from xubuntu, and the ubuntu logo from ubuntu's xsplash theme (actually I did make the black background...).

For the original work:

First extract the files in the .tar.gz file to your desktop, open the extracted folder, then hit alt=F2, enter gksu nautilus /usr/share/images/xsplash then hit run, enter your password when prompted, then drag the extracted files into the window that popped up (if you don't want to loose the default boot files make a subfolder and move them into it first), close the window and you are done!
If you prefer to use a GUI theme installer rather than getting your hands dirty in the file browser, check out Epidermis http://epidermis.tuxfamily.org/
Installation instruction credit goes to http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2009/11/change-xplash-karmic-xubuntu.html

As some of you have no doubt already discovered, when ubuntu updates xsplash, the original ubuntu theme will be restored. I recommend that you make a sub-folder in the xsplash folder (for example: /usr/share/images/xsplash/dark/ ) and keep a backup copy of the theme there so it will be quicker to fix after ubuntu has updated.


1.1 increased swarm glow/brightness to match ubuntu logo better

I found the copyright file from xubuntu-artwork. Here's the relevant bit to the xsplash theme:

I really like the Xsplashs that you have uploaded so far. I've just installed Dark Swarm, and it looks really great. Thanks once again.

I'll look into it - I just installed mint 8 on a netbook!

My guess is that mint's xsplash is configured for a different number of animation frames for the throbber, if that is the case is shouldn't be to hard to change - I'll post instructions.

ok, i found out, how to do it, but i do not recommend this to anyone. but for those of you, who know what they are doing:
edit /etc/gdm/Init/Default:
if [ -x '/usr/bin/xsplash' ];
/usr/bin/xsplash --gdm-session --daemon

add "-t /usr/share/images/xsplash/throbber_baz.png -f 50" after daemon, if the image you want to use is the one stated and the framecount is 50.

Do the same in the file /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default

i did a video for better understanding:
