    Customising Splash Screens


    I have a few questions regarding splash screens.

    I am running Redhat 8 with Gnome.

    Q1. I have created a new background graphic for my grub loader menu but when it runs it is a bit garbled. Anyone know what colour depth etc is needed for this file?

    Q2. What is the name/path of the background file for the login screen?

    Q3. What is the name/path of the graphic file used by gnome during load (after login).

    Any and all help much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Kris

    1: The GRUB texinfo specifies the required file format very exactly: a gzipped xpm which is 640x480 with a 14 color palette.
    2: The entire login screen is defined as a gdm theme. See /usr/share/gdm/themes for everything. It's also possible to select which theme to use in gdmsetup, under "Graphical Greeter".
    I don't know about the third one, though. Check the docs and google for gnome-session, and you'll probably find it somewhere.
