Description:

This replaces the "cylon eye" animation in the ubuntu startup with a recolored version of the xubuntu "firefly swarm" animation. (you need ubuntu 9.10, or a distro using xsplash to use this theme)

Please note, this is not my original work, I just recolored the xubuntu animation.

For the original work:

Installation:
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/hswarm/ ) and keep a backup copy of the theme there so it will be quicker to fix after ubuntu has updated.




Changelog:

1.1 added white version

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I thought I was going to eventually have a seizure if I had to watch that cylon animation much longer. This is much more elegant, IMO.

Thanks for all the accolades, stay tuned for some more content in a couple weeks - I have a few cool ideas for new xsplash themes!

Yeah, it looks like the latest version of epidermis has a bug - hopefully they get that fixed soon!

Anyway, if you put the files in /usr/share/images/xsplash all you have to do now is restart your computer and enjoy the show!
