Asphyxia bootsplash theme.

Background artwork by starweaver (http://starweaver.deviantart.com).


WARNING: this is a *fbsplash* theme, not a plymouth or usplash one!

for ubuntu users, apparently there is something called "uplash" that works the same way (not sure if it uses the same theme format tough, more info will be appreciated!)

* fbsplash howto (gentoo): http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/Fbsplash

* usplash howto (ubuntu): https://help.ubuntu.com/community/USplash

0.0.1 -- reworked version from the far past :D

DIY -- Do It Yourself version:
mkres.sh : SHELL scripts to create this theme for your resolution (i.e. ./mkres.sh 1920 1080). It will create a config file (i.e. 1920x1080.cfg) and an image file (i.e. images/verbose-1920x1080.jpg). It uses a ruby script to create the configuration file (so you need a ruby interpreter installed) and uses imagemagick's "convert" command to resize the base image for you.

0.0.2 -- fix
* now the cfg files actually look for images in /etc/splash/AsphyxiaBootSplash/images/* instead of /etc/splash/Asphyxia/images/*
* regenareted config files using the
script from the "DIY" version :)
* added 1600x1200 resolution.

DIY 0.0.2 -- fixed some typos
=> WARNING: if you experience problems like "Image size mismatch" scale the image to your resolution using GIMP.

it's quite difficult, because the background image is for 5:4 screens, while you have 16:9.

I will try to make one for 16:9 (i have a laptop with wide screen too :D ).

stay tuned!

definitely *not* a plymouth theme.

I googled around a little... actually (k)ubuntu "native" bootsplash was using X for the framebuffer (or am i completely wrong)?

Plymouth looks like something built directly on top of the framebuffer...

"splashutils" is what is used to manage those themes, and a kernel patch to actually use them early in the boot process...

I found a guide for debuan-based systems, i don't know if it is up-to-date:

It is a bootsplash theme, i.e. for the framebuffer.

That's what I did on gentoo, i don't know how it works on other distros ((k)ubuntu seems to have it "natively"):

1. have frambuffer support in your kernel (vesafb / uvesafb + userspace helper v86d). I used the guide http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Framebuffer, i had no chances with uvesafb, i went with vesafb (easier).

2. have framebuffer decoration support in your kernel (must use a gentoo kernel or patch your kernel http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/Fbsplash)

3. put the theme directory (AsphyxiaBootSplash) in /etc/splash/

4. generate an initrd containing the theme files using splash_geninitramfs from splashutils (see the Fbsplash link)

(4b. or copy the theme into an already existing initrd image, always with splash_geninitramfs)

If the framebuffer bootsplash "way" is different for your distribution, ask me, i will try to find out the easiest way for you, but i think/hope that the theme format is the same... no?

Just find out where those themes are stored in your system and add the directory there, find how to select the bootsplash theme and choose it.

For other resolution i will try to do my best in the shortest time... please be patient!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
