To install splashy, add this repo: https://launchpad.net/~tohms/+archiv..._filter=jaunty
I had issues with splashy not allowing a proper shutdown plus you have to add kernel command lines which isn't very forward compatible with newer kernels. This is why splashy was removed. I'm not sure why the error persists though... I'll have a look at it sometime (any help would be appreciated).
You can also use usplash which has a new linuxice splash for it:
There's also a special "Chevy" theme in the repo for usplash (usplash-theme-chevy). IMHO, it looks really good.Code:sudo apt-get install usplash; sudo apt-get remove usplash-theme-ubuntu sudo apt-get install usplash-theme-linuxice
