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:
http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/15741

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!

 Uninstalling

Hi, how can I uninstall this? It doesn't work because of the resolution on my laptop. I'm on Feisty by the way.

Thanks.

This package is for Intrepid Ibex!
It shouldn't even install in Feisty by the way.
But if you managed to install it somehow, type this in the command line to uninstall it:

$ sudo aptitude purge usplash-smooth

 Add different colors?

Very cool dude. You should make a few that have a different color scheme. I would love to have this in a black and red theme.

Usplash-smooth will primarily focus on the default themes, but it isn't too hard to create your own personalized ubuntu usplash theme!
Version 0.5 due to release really soon now comes complete with documentation teaching you how to create a theme, so that you can put your skills into creating one that only you will have in the whole world!!
Unless you decide to upload it here, to gnome-look.org, of course!!!

I have installed your usplash and I am so awesome with this, is it better to used the background screen as brown-human color that ubuntu used instead of black color ? How do you think mate ?

Thank you

Hahaha, I used to hate that brown usplash!
Well, usplash-smooth will primarily focus on the current official themes, but you can always create you old-style retro brown usplash if you want! It's really easy and version 0.5 will come with a nice documentation making things even easier! Just watch out!
