HELP Needed:

Currently I'm working on a completly rewrite of kbootsplash. This will take quite some time.

But I hope kbootsplash will be much better than.

Every Distribution has now it's own class! So I need developers who are willing to help me support their Distribution.

openSuSE is developed by myself but there are so many other distributions out there.

If someone wants to support me, then please contact me!


- fixed some mandriva specific bugs

- fixed some bugs
- changed to the new icon (by dig412 (sourceforge nick)

- developed a kcontrolcentermodule for testing
- the controlcentermodule has currently one big issue, fullscreenpreview in rootmode does not work !!!! (will be fixed in the next version)

(kbootsplash source)
(kcmkbootsplash 0.1)

 wouldn't it be neat

If the "Linux" boot screen and the "KDE" boot screen could be combined in an automatic login? I know this is far fetched, but it might be possible with a frame buffer.

I guess this is 3.1.x only, cuz a boottheme chooser is already included in 3.2?!?!? well, its nice for those using 3.1.x ;-)

 Mandrake -> out

ok... small summary...

THIS IS NOT FOR KDE! BUT FOR THE BOOTSPLASH IN LINUX! see bootsplash.org for more info.... newbies... duah...

Ok, I tested your app in my Mandrake, and it definetly does not work. I am sure mine does not work in SUSE. Apparently the distros take different approach for setting the bootsplash theme.

In Mandrake:
"/usr/share/bootsplash/scripts/switch-themes -l"
gives you the list of themes available. See my code for more info (ignore tabs and stuff). I used
"/usr/share/bootsplash/themes/$name/images/bootsplash-800x600.jpg "
for displaying something on the screen.

To change the theme, I did:
"/usr/share/bootsplash/scripts/switch-themes $name"

Hopefully you can fix your app to work in Mandrake as well. If you explain to me how does this thing work in SUSE, I will hack my own program to work on SUSE.

For detecting Mandrake, look for /etc/mandrake-release (or grep in redhat release for mandrake).

OK, I'am working on it to korrekt it.

Version 0.2 will support Mandrake too.

Changing the bootsplash under SuSE will be found in my sourcecode.

And yep it should definitly be included in the control panel!

You dont need a virus to destroy a system with windows, It already has one it itself.

just checked it - me has said stupid thing before (as user "jos") = ow, its not a kde bootsplash changer ;-)

but now - Mandrake has the change of bootsplash build-in in the mandrake control center... guess suse has something like that???

but I use debian now, and debian has no such tool (at least not that I am aware of)

so please? debian support???

thanks for the work!!!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
