OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Opensuse Under Grub2 With Splash Background And Console Background?

Mar 24, 2010

I originally have Ubuntu Lucid on my machine. I just installed opensuse 11.2 on another partition without bootloader installed. So I'm still using the Ubuntu Lucid default bootloader grub2. I can boot up opensuse correctly. the nagging thing is that there's no splash screen show up during the boot process, instead, lines of command are flashing, the console background is also missing and the font under console (tty1-6) is huge. what can I do to have these back to opensuse? the current entry in grub2 for opensuse

menuentry "openSUSE 11.2 (i586) (on /dev/sda2)" {
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,2)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 9ac05ede-e7c4-47f3-b55b-66d5844$
linux /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda2
initrd /boot/initrd-
which parameters should I add?

OpenSUSE Install :: No Bootsplash/console Background After Kernel Update

May 16, 2011

Recently I did a kernel update (compiling it manually with help of SuSE Automatic Kernel Compiler). Everything works fine and I am happy with my own settings, however there is one thing that I would to enable. On the stock kernel there is a openSUSE bootsplash on startup and a nice looking openSUSE background image in console mode. On my newly compiled kernel there is no such a eyecandies. My question is: How to enable them on my own compiled 2.6.38 kernel?

P.S In the attachment you can see what i mean with that background image in console mode, so you get my point. This is the image found on the internet, my system is openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit)

OpenSUSE :: At Shutdown Both Splash Background And Text Are Shown?

Jul 2, 2010

I'm running openSUSE 11.2 kde on msi wind u123. Everything runs fine except that whenever i try to shutdown or restart system i see both splash background and the rolling text. I think i should only see the splash with the progress bar until shutting down finishes. But for no apparent reasons i see both which is very annoying.

It might help that i changed the splash screen to a custom one. Here is the one i use and i followed every single instruction.

Ubuntu :: Boot Splash Screen With Purple Background

Feb 10, 2011

I switched back to my ubuntu installation few hours ago and I couldn't notice the strange boot screen! I remember that it used to be orange, there was the ubuntu logo and a nice loading bar. All is displayed now is a horrible purple background with just the text "Ubuntu" in the middle and a few dots just below it, showing the loading process.. I don't know how to restore the classic splash screen (I also found the original background in /usr/share/images/xsplash ).

General :: Change The GRUB2 Boot Loader Background Image?

May 1, 2011

i've started off using linux with ubuntu 10.10, and then i moved to linux mint 10 kde, and after finding out that it didn't support my hardware, in specifically my graphics card, i switched back to ubuntu 10.10, and from there i upgraded to 11.04. i hated the gui so i switched it from ubuntu to ubuntu (classic) environment. i also installed kubuntu-desktop too, and it looks a lot like mint 10 kde, i guess it uses kde 4.6, but... it's more stable for me. anyway, what i mean is that, originally ubuntu had a black background, linux mint 10 kde had a pretty cool custom mint background, ubuntu 11.04 has a purple background. i looked on videos, i found people using customized backgrounds, but they either don't explain how they got it *like for instance, someone said opensuse 11 or 13 has an icy penguin animated background, and someone else had one that you could scroll through.* or it's too complicated or outdated. is there a simple way to change your grub2 boot loader background image?

OpenSUSE Install :: Login Background Reset After Every Kernel Update

Nov 4, 2010

This is just a nit, but I have noticed that whenever the kernel is updated, the background picture that I have set up for the login screen seems to be reset to "default_blue". No other setting seems to be disturbed.

After each update, I have to go into Configure Desktop->Login manager and set my background picture again. Why is this happening? Is there a way to fix this?

I am running Suse 11.3, KDE v4.4.4.

OpenSUSE Install :: Green With White Veins In Background - Strip Of Black Running Horizontally

Dec 10, 2009

I can configure my software's appearance? Well, for the KDM theme, the Grub Bootsplash, i can download themes people so generously create. I however, desire the BOOTSPLASH. or whatever it is, of openSUSE 11.1. the green with white veins in the background, and a strip of black running horizontally across, with "openSUSE" written on it in white. i mean the one that masks the initial Text interface, the FIRST GUI you see after GRUB. The one that also shows when you power down. Is this a plausible endevour? I do have my 11.1 iso, in case it's stored as a theme in there.

Ubuntu :: Splash Logo On Background Without Resetting The Root

Jun 7, 2011

I'm setting the root window background to a gradient with the following command:


DISPLAY=:0 fbsetroot -gradient Elliptic -from blue -to black

What I would like to do next is to display a small logo in the center of the background without resetting the root window background color. Right now I tried the following two commands and they both reset the root window to a solid color... I would like to keep the gradient color.


vmsetbg -e logo.png # resets the root window
fbsetbg -c logo.png # also does the same thing

I cannot use just a single image because the same image has to look good on all screen sizes from netbooks to 52" TVs

OpenSUSE :: Can't Set Any Jpg/png As Desktop Background?

Feb 11, 2010

I've had this problem for a long time (since I first installed 11.2) but I hoped KDE SC 4.4 would fix it for me. Since it didn't, I decided to make a thread about it. I have a really weird problem ─ I can only set svg graphics as desktop backgrounds. I can't put any kind of png/jpg (haven't tried others) picture as a wallpaper. All I get is a black background. The weather backgrounds etc. work perfectly fine. I can create a svgz file in Inkscape and insert a png image in it but that's kind of a stupid workaround for a problem. Has anyone encountered a problem like this?

OpenSUSE :: Getting Black Background With KDE4?

Aug 31, 2010

I've been running KDE4 with Suse 11.2 for about a year or so now, with no problems. Yesterday, the background to my screen suddenly went black. Open windows were unaffected, but I could see my theme, the task manager, etc. I couldn't open any programs other than the ones already open (and ones that they launch).This problem was system-wide, in that it affects all accounts on my machine.I thought I'd solved the problem after discussion with someone by email, by forcing KDE to recreate itself. I did this by

mv ~/.kde4 ~/oldkde4

then relogging. This, in itself, seemed to make matters worse, so I went

mv ~/.kde4 ~/newkde4
mv ~/oldkde4 ~/.kde4

and relogged. To my surprise, everything worked thereafter for a few hours.

I think this was coincidence, because, after a few hours, the same thing happened and the "fix" didn't work anymore.I checked .xsession-error and it says

/etc/X11/xim: Checking whether an input method should be started.
sourcing /etc/sysconfig/language to get the value of INPUT_METHOD
INPUT_METHOD is not set or empty (no user selected input method).

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 Crashes Very Often When Change Desktop Background?

Aug 14, 2010

It has been about a month since I installed openSUSE 11.3 (64bit, Gnome), and overall it is better than 11.2, but I have had some stability issues that I did not have with 11.2.

1. openSUSE 11.3 crashes very often when I change desktop background. I haven't experiment with it but it happens with downloaded images.

2. Changing monitor environment makes openSUSE to freeze. Fresh boot with external monitors connected usually works, but plugging & unplugging monitors usually makes openSUSE freezing. (I have to force power down)

3. Suspend makes openSUSE freeze a lot. Usually one suspension works, if I re-suspend it, it usually freezes.

I was wondering if these are common with 11.3 or I'm the only one who is having this.
