Hello saquib


You can make grub splash screen from any image by yourself. Here it is a procedure.

Customizing the splash image in GRUB

The splash image is the image shown in the background when GRUB (the GRand Unified Bootloader) is displaying the list of operating systems you can boot. Typically, this is the corporate logo of your Linux distribution. But its very simple to customize it to an image of your choice. All you need is the GIMP and gzip. My GIMP version is 1.2. Even older versions may do the job.

Here's how:(You need to have root access)
1)Start the GIMP.
2)Click on File->New or type Ctrl+N
3)In the new image dialog, change Width to 640 pixels and Height to 480 pixels. (The image should be of size 640x480 pixels.) Now click OK.
4)Create the image which you would like to be the splash image. It's quite fun to experiment with the various tools of the GIMP!
5)After you have finished creating the image, hit Alt+i or right click on the image and click on Image->Mode->Indexed...
6)In the Indexed Color Conversion dialog that appears, click on the radio button "Generate optimal Palette" and in "# of colors" enter 14. Click OK.(The image should be of only 14 colors)
7)Now right-click on the image and click on File->Save As...Save the file as splash.xpm in a directory of your choice.
8)Now open a terminal window and navigate to the directory where you have saved splash.xpm
9)Now key in gzip splash.xpm
10)You will find that a file named splash.xpm.gz is created in the directory where splash.xpm used to exist.
11)Copy this splash.xpm.gz to the /boot/grub directory. You may want to back up the pre-existing splash.xpm.gz file in the /boot/grub directory first.

That's it! When you reboot, you will find your image in the background, with the menu of operating systems etc. in the foreground.

Of course, this is not the only way to change the image, but it is a very simple one.

Here is what i found to do this :

Code: Select all

$ convert -depth 14 -resize 640x480 1.jpg linuxpakistan.xpm && gzip
linuxpakistan.xpm


Tell GRUB where to find it, reboot, and there it hopefully is. Edit your
grub.conf or menu.lst:

Code: Select all

#Display a splashscreen
 splashimage (hd0,0)/mygrub/linuxpakistan.xpm.gz
Thanks,
Regards

yes!
now i got your point...
amazing suggestion....surprisingly great!
i will surely complete with lots of more wallpapers, with grubl's xpm.gz files so newbie can easily replace it with splash.xpm.gz file. i haven't much idea with that but i will gave it a try first on ma pc then post....so may take a little bit longer...but you can get its psd if you wants to make...


Only One Person is passing suggestions even when the post is viewed 64 times!!! :cry: yaar actually developers also need some compliments...but only true compliments ... kindly atleast suggest what should i do know or in which way we can start publicity of Linux Pakistan.
i am going to create animated linux pakistan Banner so it could be linked n clipped on any website pointing towards domain....surely many websites can take it as a donation if it got created cool....so if ne one of you have any ideas or imagination regarding this then please dont hesitate and draw it on mspaint etc and mail me....i m waiting....
coz one man cant be the best as team....
hope so you will....
Thanks,
Regards
