A background (or two) where there's just the swimming penguins, or just the cloudy sky. Three horizontal bands with three images in the background is a bit too "busy" for a desktop background, but that's just my opinion.

I love your avatar. Also, looks like you have the timer counting down by putting little white dots around the Debian spiral in the GRUB background, which looks very cool.

I haven't got the original pic of the penguins or the clouds on their own. I can possibly get it off the guy that made it but I can't promise anything soz.

I can't take credit for that countdown on the grub. That part was acritox's work I think.

I created a splashy theme using one of your wallpapers, Cathbard!

You can download it here, (slam: moved to our server for faster download) instructions on how to install in the README file.

Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and add:

deb http://splashy.alioth.debian.org/debian unstable main

Then run:

apt-get update
apt-get install splashy splashy-themes



/edit/
oh, didn't know you already had done a splashy theme Traurig just read it in post
http://kanotix.com/index.php?name=PNphp ... highlight=
that slam posted while i was typing my post here Mit den Augen rollen
(slam: his theme here looks better - forget mine.)

Is there something wrong with my install? look:

Code:
boliva@HPbox:~/mysh$ apt-cache policy grub-gfxboot
grub-gfxboot:
  Installed: 0.97-7
  Candidate: 0.97-7
  Version table:
 *** 0.97-7 0
        500 http://kanotix.com sid/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/statu


However:
Code:

Okay, I downloaded the gfxboot-theme-kanotix_0.2-2_all.deb file and installed it and its dependencies (gfxboot, gfxboot-theme-kanotix-2006-easter etc). Now how do I get it to replace the easter boot menu with this one? I tried the ln -fs message.hd /boot/message and the grub-install /dev/hda but the old boot menu still shows. Also, is there any way to get the "Kanotix Penguins 2006 - no fish " kdm theme to show the text in english (such as username and password)?

Thanks.

Edit:I changed the language to en in the kdmrc file.
Edit2:I figured out how to enable the gfxboot Verlegen .

You're quite right, I should have said gxfboot > 3 for the grub.

For the bootsplash, last time I checked acritox's bootsplash didn't work on kernel 2.6.17. I guess that will change if it hasn't already. I intend to have a play with splashy in the near future which should remove the necessity to patch the kernel like bootsplash does.
Sorry I took so long to answer you. I kept getting distracted.

Yeah, any slh kernel won't work with bootsplash. It sees that only Kano likes bootsplash in his kernels

Well splashy has hit debian/sid and me and slam have created one ready for you all. You will find it in the fourth post with all the other miscellaneous stuff.
Instructions on how to install it are in the readme file.

Thanks Cathbard for the splashy and the instructions included in it. I installed splashy a couple of days ago and did not know I had to do the unfreeze and freeze stuff to get it to work. Keep up the good work.

Thanks guys, well I'm still at it. There is now an iconset for the kmenu posted in the fourth post. To use it unzip the file and copy them into the icon folder you are using. This will be something like /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/size/apps if you are using the crystal set.
Each icon is labelled kmenu128.png, kmenu64.png, kmenu48.png etc. These must be renamed to kmenu.png and placed in the appropriate subfolder. (ie kmenu128.png becomes /usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/128/apps/kmenu.png)

Enjoy
