Description:

A better uplink splash screen.
Alright, I've done a lot of work over the past few days and this is the final product.I also have some splashes with icons of major distros on them (Suse,Ubuntu,Debian) if anyone wants them I'll upload them in a few days.
The download link which says "Variation of Uplink Gnome Splash Screen v 1.0" is the one which says linux at the bottom instead of Uplink,Trust is a weakness.Any way sorry for my rant use it, enjoy it and mainly have fun. :-D

Comments welcome and thank you gnome-look.org for providing a great service.

All artistic inspiration goes to Introversion Software.
support them at http://www.introversion.co.uk.(no they are not paying me to advertise for them:-)

Enjoy!

Whenever I try to download, I just get a screenshot. Are your links OK? (These look great by the way!)

Yeah,the links are okay...you have to right click on the picture and click "save to disk" or "save image as".

Then follow the instructions of my first post to install...

You may not have splash screen activated in your menu.
1.Right click on the menu and click on "Edit Menus"
2.You'll probably need to minimise the "Applications" menu by clicking the arrow on the left of it.
3.Click on preferences scroll down until you see splash screen check the box next to it.
4.Thats it!

Follow the rest of my instructions from above

Glad to be of help

Just thought I would let people know how to install splash screens.

1. Using your package manager install gnome-splashscreen-manager. Now put the splashscreen image in to /home/yourusername/.gnome ( well you can put it anywhere really but I put it there so I don't accidentally delete the image) Then go to System > Preferences > Splash Screen. Click Install and then select your image file (Wherever you put it) then select the image and click activate. Now logout and log back in again to see your lovely new splashscreen.
