really wish to customize my GDM for ubuntu 11.4 but failed to do so.....therefore i decided to use alt. such as SLiM.....I could install it properly in virtualbox but when i went to do it on my real ubuntu 11.4 ......the screen stops at plymouth theme or goes blank after loading plymouth theme......then i read further more blogs and made changes and now even if i configure SLim the GDM starts no matter what i do .........
PS : I am new to ubuntu and dont have any knowledge about scripting programming and stuff....
I've noticed there are various plymouth themes (the booting animation sequence) on synaptic but I can't figure out how to actually my plymouth theme. I was using Ubuntu studio theme and now I changed but I can't change the plymouth theme. Is there a plymouth manager or anything?
I am trying to change plymouth theme. but when I try to change it using plymouth-set-default-themeI am getting this/usr/lib64/plymouth/script.so does not existGoogle did not have much to say either. I am using F14 KDE spin.y plymouth version is .8.4-0.20100823.7
plymouth theme doesn't display in linux mint. i mean not even the default plymouth theme. instead of it a blue screen with white text is displayed which looks really ugly. even if i change the theme to some other, the same screen displays. any ideas on what could be the problem and possible remedies? note: when at last i give the update initramfs command it displays a warning the en_IN is not supported.
I cant get a bootsplash image at all during boot/shutdown. Anyways I tried some solutions and kinda realized I dont have /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash. Could that possibly be it? And if so, how do I fix this. 10.04 Nvidia graphics Is there another solution to plymouth? I tried splashy and usplash wont install. So anyone else know a way.
really hate the new default plymouth theme in Fedora since 11, as such I'd rather use either Solar or Spinfinity as the default plymouth themes, however F12 for some reason keeps ignoring me when I set the default theme.I downloaded all necessary packages for this and for some reason unknown to me when I boot the computer the default theme still appears, unless I switch to a VT (press F1) and then back to the plymouth boot (ESC) does it change to the theme I selected, be it Solar or Spinfinity. The symlink in /usr/share/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth is point to the right theme (i.e. /usr/share/plymouth/themes/spinfinity/spinfinity.plymouth), and yet it does not load at boot by default, do I have to remove the other "default" theme or what?
Upgrade to lucid (by running update-manager -d) succeeded with no major error. But when I reboot the computer, the boot splash screen is "Ubuntu Studio" and the login screen's background is a "Ubuntu-eee" png picture. A funny mess.I was able to get to the new boot splash screen by remove --purge ubuntu-studio, which I must have installed sometimes in the past, but I don't see anyway of getting the new theme for the login screen.I have this eeepc for about 2 years and never have to fresh-install Ubuntu except the first time. I much rather not have to fresh-install just to solve some aesthetic problems.I am pretty sure it's due to some package I installed in the past, but I don't see any Ubuntu-eee related package in Synaptic either.
I have a fresh install of 10.04 and i have changed my playmouth theme to spinfinity and now when i boot its plays the animation and then justh the ubuntu logo on the screen.....ice let it sit at this state for hours...when i push the power button on my computer the logo goes away and ubuntu proceeds to shut down.cant log into my desktop to change the theme back to the default....im on another partition at the moment....how do i change my theme back to the default?
Is it just me or are others too experiencing this problem.Just installed the Solar theme for plymouth.....It works well without affecting the boot time....The only thing that is imperfect about it is that the progressbar moves extremely slowly and only completes 1/3 rd before Ubuntu boot
I want to change the background image for a Plymouth theme on FC13. I'musing spinfinity and I'd like to just have a blank background or somesolid color rather than the Fedora logo. I've found the sprites in /usr/share/plymouth/themes/spinfinity.
I recently upgraded to 64-bit maverick (from 64-bit lucid) and I'm getting this ugly boot splash now - it's a purple screen with a very basic "ubuntu 10.10" written in terminal font and four dots underneath. I am running a dell xps m1530 with nvidia graphics card, and haven't had any trouble with the boot splash before. I have run the additional hardware drivers utility and it says I have the latest Nvidia driver already loaded apparently.I have looked around the forums and tried a few suggested solutions, like updating the initramfs with the framebuffer=y line but that didn't do anything. I also tried adding a new theme in plymouth and switched to that instead, but it still doesn't come up.
I updated my laptop from F12 to F14 via preupgrade. After doing so, the standard mouse theme was active. So I installed the one I like again and set it as mouse theme. For some reason it is now a mixture of the one I installed and the standard theme. If I open a place in nautilus the displayed symbol is the right one while waiting, if I open something in control center I get the standard icon. Same problem with drag and drop, I always get the hand from the standard theme. I also tried the former standard theme Bluecurve and it was the same problem.Can anyone tell me what goes wrong with the theme? What has changed in F14, that the older themes won't work?
i decided i wanted to change my boot screen and i installed plymouth themes and used solar and now that i dont like any of the Plymouth themes, i want the original purple boot screen back but i dont know how and it would be awesome if somebody could tell me P.S I'm a bit of a linux noob so sorry if i got anything muddled up lol
I can't change my GDM theme any more nor will I be able to in the next version of Ubuntu! I know why (the gnome developers took the feature out in the re-write of GDM). I have two questions. Why is GDM so bloated that they can't re-write all of the features? It also seems to take a lot of resources (more than the others). My second question. When, if ever, will I be able to customize my gdm theme again?
What happened to the gdm configuration screen where I could change the default gdm theme? This seems to have disappeared from ubuntu 10.04, and in my personal opinion, the white/purple default theme of the new gdm is terrible and I would like to change it. Where is the GUI for this in lucid, and why has it disappeared?
EDIT: System -> Administration -> Login Screen only allows me to change automatic logins and other features like that. The GUI I'm referring to isn't there.
I can get to System / Preference / Appearance / Theme in 10.04 but when I decide I want to use the Clearbooks theme and open it, there is no icon to click to install it. Exactly how does this work, step by step?
