** INSTALATION **


Simply install StartUp-Manager and select Heliocentric.so.

If You doesn't work, read next text:

- Install some build utilities
1.) sudo apt-get install cdbs debhelper dpkg-dev fakeroot devscripts autotools-dev
2.) sudo apt-get install libusplash-dev
- Install the build dependencies for the usplash stuff
3.) sudo apt-get build-dep usplash-theme-ubuntu

- Get the source code - I'd base it on the Heliocentric.
4.) Copy file Heliocentric.so to /usr/lib/usplash.
5.) sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/lib/usplash/usplash-artwork.so usplash-artwork.so /usr/lib/usplash/Heliocentric.so 10
6.) sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so && sudo update-initramfs -u

- If You choose another resolution, You must edit file:
7.) sudo gedit /etc/usplash.conf
# Usplash configuration file
xres= "your X-resolution"
yres= "your Y-resolution"

- Test it witch:
8.)sudo usplash -c


Good luck!

What operating system you have? Ubuntu 8.10, 9.04 etc.

At 9.04 I was the same as you usplash.

Sorry, forgot to mention the OS.

It's Ubuntu 9.10. Resolution set at 1680x1050.

Didn't try compiling it though, I will later on.

In 9.10, GDM and Usplash are being replaced by XSplash. While technically it still uses Usplash at first, and the splashes do indeed have a .so extension and are found in the same folder as before, none of those will work (at least none of my old ones do). So, any splashes that work for earlier versions like 9.04 will not work for 9.10. I have even seen bozos misleading the masses by stating their usplashes are for Jaunty/Karmic. Hopefully people will start adding Ubuntu versions to the titles of their uploaded splashes to make it clearer if it will work in 9.10.

Hahaha! Ooops! Seems this is in fact one of those that claim to be for 9.04 and 9.10, hahaha! Sorry, no offence meant to anyone, but SERIOUSLY, do your homework before making bold claims!

Whoa, I really made a big typo there. Didn't realize it until now.

It's not a matter of doing my homework, it's more a matter of paying attention to what I'm typing.
