Installing and Managing Gnome Splashscreens

Gnome has n option to have it’s own splash screen. It comes on after you log on while Gnome is loading. I like this, as it gives me something to look at. Unfortunately, I never could find a way to change it than to manually go and do it. That is a real pain.

Now, however, I found a piece of software that lets you activate, preview, and change your Gnome splash screen. To get it, run ‘sudo apt-get install gnome-splashscreen-manager’. Now the utility will be located in System > Preferences > Splash Screens. The interface is simple, not confusing at all.

To see the new splash screen, you need to lo out, then log back in again. And there it is!

For getting new, interesting splash screens, try Gnome Art Splash Screens( I recommend Dull Gray Gnome) or Gnome-Look.

And that’s all!
