I've put preliminary stuff at /mit/iannucci/usplash/. The Inkscape-compatible SVG file is named owl.svg. Build-dep is libusplash-dev. Installation is like:

make
sudo cp debathena-theme.so /usr/lib/usplash/
update-alternatives --install /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-artwork.so usplash-artwork.so /usr/lib/usplash/debathena-theme.so 55
update-initramfs -u

According to  http://pinstack.blogspot.com/2009/06/13-things-to-get-excited-for-in-ubuntu.html, it sounds like usplash is on its way out, to be replaced with  Plymouth.

And it's another package from freedesktop.org, developed by Red Hat! I'm sure this'll be fun.

Plymouth didn't actually get used for Ubuntu. It sounds like usplash is still used for a throbber for early boot, so we should probably go ahead and package the usplash theme; we'll also want to skin  xsplash, which is basically a setup for starting the login screen's X server somewhat earlier than the login screen itself. That part of this problem ties into the design of the login screen itself.

Replying to geofft:

Plymouth didn't actually get used for Ubuntu.

Where are you hearing that? It is currently the case in Lucid that ubuntu-standard depends plymouth and nothing important depends or recommends usplash.

  • Summary changed from We should make an Athena usplash theme to We should make an Athena plymouth theme

This is completely trivial now, assuming we want to do it. the default plmyouth theme is managed with alternatives. Go look at /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo for how the default theme works.

I'm looking into the details of how to make an Athena plymouth theme. If there are specific things that would be cool for it to have, let me know.

  • Status changed from committed to development

Built to -dev, not added to any metapackages yet.

  • Fixed in version changed from debathena-plymouth-config 1.0 to debathena-plymouth-config 1.1 debathena-workstation 1.10

Added to -workstation, and 1.1 pushed out that installs the alternative at a higher priority.

Do we want a text theme too?
