I don't know where the "shutting down" or "restarting system" messages come from,

It's the last Message part that displays the "shutdown" text. I've added it to the script.
It's a very beautiful theme. Can be worked on a little bit more, like using the official logo and text and try to get more symmetry between logo and progress bar. As it is now with progress bar appearing before logo, you get a few seconds of unbalance.
Good work.

How about posting the background image here to see what this looks like?


Basically, it's a darkened earth, the sun rises and the planet becomes lit, and then a "SimplyMEPIS" fades in. As well as the progress bar from the official theme added to the script.

Would be cool to have the Mepis pyramids rising up instead of the sun.

Replace the "sun_glow.png" file with the one of your choice and see what happens. For example, this one will give you a scary Super Moon! ZOMG! Or try Warren levitating in his yoga position...https://encrypted.google.com/imgres?img ... CC0Q9QEwBQ

Bump: made a deb package, it and the sources will be linked in the first post, and the original link removed.

Here's a simplified version with the MEPIS logo rising instead of the sun. Removed the logo next to the progress bar.

Did this for myself for the rising sun. Looks better against the dark background and has the old font. There are a lot of neat things you an do with this theme.

thanks big guy(s) :biggrin:,

better than i could have hoped for. i even switched it over from the solar with a custom logo.

using it without the 'planet_black.png' and with the 'full moon sun_glow.png' and a custom logo, something about sid/blah … ^_^ 32...

this forum rocks!

thanks for all the fish :) test machine :D most excellent.

PS my bootup here seems to be stuck on space-nuts theme, but it matches kdm and splash so...

dude! that's fun,

this one has the moon coming up, kind of right behind the pyramids (which were a gift from the art forum a few years back). it's Utopia's 'distro_name.png' (*very nice* imo) with the usual chops and crops. very easy to do, i used Stevo's deb and switched a couple of images around. it also works well with the planet_black.png left in, but i prefer it without.

Tweaking Plymouth themes gets just as addictive as tweaking Conky...There's another theme that looks just like Win 7's animated splash, too, that's good for fooling people.
