Yes I liked your design quite a lot!

THANK YOU! - Oct 06 2004
If your machine or laptop is capable of 1024x768 add a

vga=791 to your /etc/lilo.conf to enable the console bitmap.


append="devfs=mount resume=/dev/hdaX splash=silent"

As appropriate for your installation.

BTW: If you wish to speed up your boot, make sure that compact appears in /etc/lilo.conf as indicated.

This dovetails nicely with the GNU/LINUX Tux KDE splashscreen posted earlier, and utilizing the TUX.PNG image as a centered desktop decoration. - Oct 06 2004

Your parody of this was funny and made a point.

If you fail to see the point, then it's your loss.

Frankly I really like the look I get from Winblows users when they see my Laptop boot up with my Linux boot splash themes.

That look of "there's something I've never seen before" warrants tons more splash screens. - Aug 25 2004

No I didn't see anything that would indicate that the RPM was installing any splash screen.

However when I went to install the compiled RPM you posted on my laptop, the same thing happened.

Britany appeared where it wasn't before (nor had I downloaded or installed any such theme...).

The Baghira RPM was the only thing installed that would account for this.

Britany didn't appear prior to it's installation.

While I may be mistaken, I have yet to find the source of the Britany splash screen which was installed.

Thanks though. - Aug 23 2004
Fixed it!

Apparently the RPM installation copies the Theme.rc and associated .png files into ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes

When Baghira is turned on for any user this happens as well.

Anyway this overrides the default theme settings in the Kcontrol Splash applet.

I merely moved the files into ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/Britany and the problem stopped.

You may want to see about adjusting the RPM.

EXCELLENT never-the-less! - Aug 21 2004
BTW: Now even if I turn off this theme/style/decoration/login theme... I still get Britany no matter what.

Any ideas?

I also can't find the pixmap. - Aug 21 2004
Thanks for the reply.

I'm running Mandrake 10 with all of the updates and a lot of packages from Contrib.

I thought that maybe it was a problem with the fact that I recompiled the RPM myself so I took your RPM file over to my laptop which also runs Mandrake 10.

Sure enough, the same problem.

I can't get rid of Britany!

Where are the files kept for this, so at the least I can replace them.

Thanks! - Aug 21 2004
I'm running MDK 10.

After rebuilding your src.rpm and installing I cannot change the splash screen.

Another option which would be nice to add, would be the somewhat quiet sound of solenoid switches, every time the tube image changes.

The user could switch this on or off at will.

This would give it the distinctive "thunk" sound the old machines used to have when the digits changed. - May 14 2004
On another note, the wonderful RAM meter needs another tube.

It can't handle 4 or 5 digits.

Yeah, with the ability to assign one meter per interface.

Finally a temperature and fan monitor, and I'd be leaving this running on Linux Firewall machines all the time.

It makes for a great "retro" display with "all 'dem blinking tubes". - May 13 2004

Also adjusting the quotes does not work.

The other modules work perfectly though.

I already have the proper Symlinks in Mandrake 9.2.

Also I had already tried what the other poster suggested, namely...

f = os.popen("/bin/df-P | /bin/grep \"/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part6\"")

Neither work for me.

Middle button click for the seperate window view of maps doesn't work for me.

Instead it merely overlays the icons back over the map. - Mar 15 2004
The new version looks nice however the default fonts are WAAAY too large. I had to reduce them to Arial 8.

With older versions I had the webcam URL pointing to a 640x480 doppler radar image...(the same one now pulled up by default...)

Anyway this would appear in 640x480.

Under the new version I cannot mimic this behaviour.

The doppler pictures are simply too small to make heads or tails of, especially on higher dot density monitors. - Feb 29 2004
