Description:

This is my own variation of bobox2's excellent SuSE splash screen. The Green for Life splash screen is not only attractive, but it is simple and it is very easy to read text displayed on it. I've made myself some freetime and created this with the GIMP. Hope you enjoy it, and I think everybody should try helping out their favorite distributions, if not financially, creating something for them will always be welcomed!

Please give me feedback on how you would like this improved.

I guess the image was made with Photoshop, since saving the file in Gimp as a .jpeg (0.98 quality) did the trick. It has something to do with extra info Photoshop or another program is leaving behind in the file. Anyway, problem solved.

My instructions are probably wrong, I gave the same instructions that somebody who mad ea simmilar suse splash did. I thought they should work the same, I haven't installed this yet, I like the 8.1 Splash screen better.

Someone please help him out.

Hi,

I downloaded the image, followed all installation instrucions (renamed the file, edited the .cfg file, ran mk_initrd & lilo -v) but the image doesn't show up at boot. The following line appears in boot.msg:

Looking for splash picture....error 9 while decompressing picture.
Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 128x48

I even can't go back to the original picture, what am I doing wrong here ?

Thx,

LordChaos

Also do you run Photoshop 7 under WINE, Mac or Windows, also what led you to Photoshop 7 instead of other programs.

I run Photoshop under windows as this is a tool I use every day.

I just started to look at linux....

I found the icon here: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=1566

It is a GIMP file and is about 5 times bigger than in the screeenshot, it is much higher quality as well and includes all the alyers. To add something different in the crystal ball, you jsut have to swap a layer basically.

Also do you run Photoshop 7 under WINE, Mac or Windows, also what led you to Photoshop 7 instead of other programs.

I'm also glad you like my little changes :)
