Splash image ....


Hi ,

what i want to do is to change the initiation background image (you know when it goes through all the checks : periferials e.t.c ) It's not the boot screen itself but the one that follows when you invoke startx .

Where are these images located ?

it's probably bootsplash. it's not that easy to configure, as the hard drives are not avaiable when the checks are being done, but see bootsplash.org for details.

I think you might be talking about KDE/GNOME splash rather than bootsplash. In KDE, go to Control Centre->Appearance and Themes->Splash and change it there.
