As you all know that Ubuntu has introduced the Xsplash [New set of Boot screens] from the version 9.10 the Karmic Koala.This Post explains how you can configure the boot screen(as the default one is the most ugly you can find 😦 ).

1.Get some cool xsplash themes from http://gnome-look.org

2. Now for namesake lets just backup the default xsplash[even though you will never look back for it] by the following method.

a. Open Terminal

$gksudo nautilus /usr/share/images/xsplash

now you can see some image files.Just select all of them and cut it and paste it somehwere SAFE 🙂

b.Now extract the theme file(as it will be available in .tar.gz format. Copy all the files found after extracting to /usr/share/images/xsplash.

Thats all…Now to check xsplah just open a terminal and give

$sudo xsplash

and you can enjoy your new xsplash screen without rebooting. 🙂 Enjoy 🙂
