General :: Replace The Scrolling Text During Boot-up With A Splash Image?

Mar 10, 2011

I need some help in determining how to have a color splash image display in place of the Linux scrolling-text during the boot-up process on an embedded Linux device. The kernel used is a stripped-down version of Linux (kernel 2.6.29), which has been custom configured. I am using syslinux as the bootloader. I was told that Plymouth might be the way to go with this, but I'm not sure.

General :: Boot Splash Image In Ubuntu?

Mar 4, 2010

Changing GRUB image I am using ubuntu 8.04 I read [URL] got gnu-head.xpm.gz (it has 12 colors & 640x480 resolution) Added following line at beginning of menu.lst splashimage=(hd0,5)/boot/grub/gnu-head.xpm.gz
Remember no space after (hd0,5). I did that mistake once and got error Failed to read ((hd0,5)⏏/boot/grub/gnu-head.xpm.gz) Press any key to continue Coming back to point . Now run # update-grub

Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
Searching for default file ... found: /boot/grub/default
Testing for an existing GRUB menu.lst file ... found: /boot/grub/menu.lst


Isn't this interesting. If you want to change the image during bootup then see [URL]

Fedora :: Scrolling Text During Boot Process Instead Of 'loading Bar'?

Jun 4, 2009

This doesnt really bother me at all, Im more curious than anything but- When I first installed fedora 9, during startup there was a bootsplash during the boot process. When the kernal was updated, the bootsplash was replaced with scrolling text (I have done several kernal updates, it was after the first one the scrolling text happened). Is there a way of reverting back to the bootsplash or is it more trouble than what its worth?

Ubuntu :: Boot Splash Static With Green Lines Across Image

Mar 17, 2011

Upon boot up the usual little mouse splash boot is suppose to come up. Once I first installed it (10.10 via usb) the boot screen worked perfectly but after I updated via the update manager the boot splash became all static and green lines across the image. It still boots up to the login screen but it's just ugly looking at it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get Scrolling Text Over The Bootsplas

Apr 19, 2010

It takes about 25 seconds for my Grub to load, about 10-15 seconds of a black screen with flashing cursor before the first (Grub version 1.5 etc) message, then another ten seconds or so with the message "grub loading please wait" (from memory) before the menu appears. Is that normal for a system with three HDs and three different OS (SUSE 11.2 and 11,1, Ubuntu 10.04)? Maybe it is, but it would be nice to shave off a few seconds as Grub now takes longer than booting the OS... Also, when I set the resolution in YaST2 of the Bootloader to my maximum of 1920x1200 (24bit), I get scrolling text over the bootsplash which I didn't get when the resolution was set to the previous value of 1600x1200 (8bit).

Ubuntu :: Text Corruption When Scrolling - Natty 64-bit

Jul 8, 2011

Whenever I have an open OS-generated window (Software Center, Settings etc), the text will be corrupted if the window is scrolled. This can be restored by highlighting the text - and sometimes it will self-restore given time, but the corruption will reappear if the text is scrolled again.

The behaviour does not happen in program-generated windows, such as Firefox.

Programming :: Automatically Scrolling Text Box In PyGTK?

How to make it so that the ScrolledWindow automatically scrolls so that the caret in the TextView is always in visible?

Software :: Scrolling In Opera - Displaying The Chopped Image

Jan 7, 2011

since a few updates of Opera, I'm experiencing very choppy scrolling, which is hugely annoying. It looks as if the page were chopped up and only pieces of it were scrolling, with parts of the former content still displayed. Now this happens generally during normal usage, with nothing but the browser running. CPU usage is thus minimal. The effect can be circumvented for a few seconds if I force the browser to scroll a large part of the screen at once (using the cursor keys), which has the effect of displaying the chopped immage as a still for a second, after which scrolling is perfectly fine.

This looks as though it was an issue of the processor speed being deregulated; alas, /proc/cpuinfo states both cores to be at their minimum speed in either circumstances. I'm not switching to Firefox, Opera is the only non-free piece of software I've come to love.

Fedora :: Changing 14 Splash Image?

Oct 31, 2010

For those who wish to change the default login splash background in fedora 14, the offending graphics are to be found in /usr/share/backgrounds/laughlin/default.

Step 1 is to add your preferred ping image alongside the laughlin.png in whichever directory your monitor uses. I am apparently "normalish" so I put my background there. 1280x1024 RGB.

Step 2 - edit the "laughlin.xml" file in the "default" directory, replacing "laughlin.png" with the name of the file you added above.

To get the proper dimensions for an image, you can load laughlin.png into the GIMP and read Image/Properties. While there, you could erase the contents of the image and replace with your own, similar to rinsing out your mouth. Then spit.

If you use a graphic from outside fedora, don't forget to run restorecon on the file, or else SELinux won't allow gdm to display it.
