Ubuntu Usplash Smooth

Ubuntu Usplash Smooth

Description:

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

Now the progress bar is time-based!

What does it means?
Well...

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.

Enjoy!

Now you can also get these packages via Ubuntu PPA:
https://launchpad.net/~usplash-smooth/+archive

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

Changelog:

Version 0.4:

This is the version you all have been waiting for!
Changelog:

• 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!

TO-DO:

• 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.

Enjoy!

 Disk check?

What happens when, during bootup, Ubuntu decides it wants to check your drive for errors? This significantly increases bootime.

Let's suppose that your boot takes 30 seconds.

If Ubuntu decides to check for errors, the progress bar will fill up in 30 seconds and stay filled until Gnome starts.

But in the next boot without file checking, the progress bar will take mitutes to fill up (because of the previous slow boot) and when Gnome starts, the progress bar will still be very little.

In the third boot, everything is back to normal.

The time-based progress bar is just aesthetics. It does not change your boot process in any way.

But that was a good point. In a future version I might detect the filesystem check and ignore the time of that specific boot!

Thank you!

 Disk check

 
 by zethriller on: Nov 18 2008

I have Ubuntu 8.10 32 bits, I just wonder why during boot-up, the usplash suddenly disappear, and somthing shows up in the console like this:
"xxxx
fsck n.n.nn 10/11/2008"

with xxxx a "random" number (1073, ...)

I don't know what it is...

I remember Dapper's usplash, there was some text under the usplash logo (from the console), this was great, but since Edgy, it is no more there. Is there any way to reactivate it.

And one last thing about usplashs in general: are those built for Hardy still compatible with Intrepid ? - thanks

I really don't know about your problem, but I know about the other things!

To reactivate the text in usplash, just remove the "quiet" from your kernel entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst ... but this has the side effect of displaying a LOT of text before usplash kicks in.

And yes! The hardy usplashes I have used up to now are compatible with Intrepid!

This looks so awesome! The biggest problem I see is the little problem with fsck when it messes up the timing. Other than that it's amazing. Gave it a +1 on brainstorm.

About the filesystem check... it's a priority for version 0.4!

 Waiting for 0.4 version

Great idea dude, keep up the good job!
Besides, as we all know the system will make up a file check before starting up the system, the Usplash should handle it; that's why I'm going to wait for the 0.4 to be out and then I'll go get it right away!
By the way, aren't you thinking about to work on GNOME's splash screen as well...?

thanks!

Thank you for the support!
The next version will be out soon!

About the Gnome Splash...
I don't know.

I am good at coding, not drawing!
Let's see what comes out of this first!

Great, I still meant to have the ubuntu logo blue, since I don't really like the orange default theme and I have made my theme blue. So blue would be great.

You have made your own theme blue?
That's great news!

Why don't you adapt it to use usplash-smooth?
The instructions are in the directory /usr/share/usplash-smooth

It would be great if there were more themes using these functions!
Version 0.5 will be dedicated to theme creators as yourself, but you can jump ahead
and create a usplash-smooth version of your own theme right now!
And maybe even post it here, in gnome-look.org!!
