Usplash Theme - Fingerprint

Usplash Themes by Embrace 198 comments

I asked the awesome coders behind usplash, add one of them told me this:

"Your question #22579 on usplash-theme-ubuntu in ubuntu changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/usplash-theme-ubuntu/+question/22579

kuwanger proposed the following answer:
I've looked at the source myself. It happens that usplash can use up to
two backends for drawing. One is drawing to the framebuffer, if it
exists. But, one can also compile in SVGA support, in case there
doesn't exist a framebuffer. As it happens, Ubuntu doesn't
automatically support the framebuffer--quoting /etc/modprobe.d
/blacklist-frambuffer:

"
# Framebuffer drivers are generally buggy and poorly-supported, and cause
# suspend failures, kernel panics and general mayhem. For this reason we
# never load them automatically.
"

Well, as it happens, only the framebuffer backend actually supports the
usplash_pixmap->tranparent feature. So, if you really want to have
tranparency in your theme, you have three major options: one, manually
load your framebuffer driver and get it working properly; two, alter the
svga usplash backend yourself to add the transparency support; or three,
try out my hack to include transparency support in svga
(http://kuwanger.net/usplash-0.5.7-svga-mask.diff) patched against
usplash v0.5.7, making sure to build with "BACKEND=ga make" to make
sure svga support is included along with the default framebuffer
support.

If you go with using my hack, please be aware that it is very much a
hack and released as-is. Instead of doing the right thing, it merely
takes advantage of something called gl_putboxmask. As a result, if it
happens that the video depth used is 16bit, all blacks in a transparent-
supporting pixmap on the screen won't be really black, just really
close. And if the video depth used is 8bit, not only will your
transparency color be transparent, but so will color 0 in a transparent-
supporting pixmap. There may be some clipping issues also, though I
haven't really looked into it to be sure.

Anyways, I hope this answers your question."

None of them see very appetizing, but for this awesome usplash...I'll try later. If someone else will post a deb package, that would be awesome. - Feb 10 2008
