Custom Usplash theme not working


I have changed my usplash theme, and it isn't working, not only did it not change, but I am in what I think is verbose mode. I see a bunch of processes scrolling upward, and it says "ok" on the far right. So I was wondering if there would be any cause of this. I used "Startup Manage" to change it. And I'm using Ubuntu 8.04. Any help is greatly appreciated.

What are the options set in your startup manager? I use it and themes work. Only background image for boot loader does not work completely.

My problem is the opposite of yours, my grub background works nice, but I don't know why my usplash won't. I have it set to "dell-theme", the only setting for the usplash is the theme, nothing else.

I haven't tried any others, but I saw someone with the same problem. I didn't care to check whether it had been solved or not because I hadn't tried to change mine yet.

Then why not just check with some other theme. You can confirm where exactly the problem lies.

yeah, I tried another theme, and right after changing it, and there was all the post configuration, or something like that, I I accidentally pressed the wrong button while doing a shortcut, and it recked my install, when I restarted, I had a kernel panic. So, now, I'm going to try it, but not press anything while it's working.

I am having this same problem and every custom Usplash theme I've tried does not work, but the default Ubuntu usplash does. when i have the other themes set, upon shutdown i get "acpid: exiting" then on startup, i just get a blinking cursor instead of a Usplash theme.

I also have those "reading files needed to boot" which is an error related to my swap i just dunno how to fix it. That I can deal with though. I just want a custom Usplash!!
