Here is New Sleek Usplash Proposal for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn.It is mainly composed of the ubuntu logo and the very nice forum coffee beans,which fill up during boot/shutdown.

Download new usplash image file from here

Unpack it using the following command

tar -xzvf usplash-theme-beans.tar.gz

Copy the file corresponding to your display aspect

sudo cp usplash-theme-beans_4_3.so /usr/lib/usplash

Edit the usplash symlink to point to the new file

sudo ln -sf /etc/alternatives/usplash-artwork.so /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-beans_4_3.so

Update your boot image

sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-$(uname -r)

If you want return to the normal usplash following steps

Edit the usplash symlink to point to the original file:

sudo ln -sf /etc/alternatives/usplash-artwork.so /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-theme-ubuntu.so

Update your boot image using the following command

sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-$(uname -r)

  1. Nice, but I’d like to keep the current one because this one doesn’t show all these things starting up.

    the screenshot looks nice, however, i’m unable to run it on ubuntu edgy amd64. Could you please make it compatible or perhaps post the source?

    i’ve been looking for new usplash themes and in the many i’ve found it has become obvious that this splash engine (usplash) doesn’t support animations like bootsplash does (mng files). all it’s capable of is drawing a progress bar. while the progress bar is better here than what i’ve experience in bootsplash, it will get a bit off once one has done something to optimize the system into booting faster than the normal. so the progressbar doesn’t get adjusted. at 70% (this point before i optimized) my ubuntu is already starting the X server. would be better if there was just an animated object making loops until the end of the boot phase is reached. this way it won’t look like something went wrong since there’s a big space left in the progress bar. :D
