Description Elad Alfassa 2009-12-24 14:23:39 UTC
Plymouth boot splash background should match the gdm background, this way the boot process would appear smoother, because most of the screen area would not change. 

I suggest that every time the user changes the GDM background the initrd will be rebuilt (because Plymouth cannot access the gdm background). To do that, a change is required to the charge theme, and to  gnome-appearance-properties.

In case that we do not want to rebuild the initrd every time (or don't want to make changes to gnome-appearance-properties), we can just change the background of charge theme to gdm's default background (instead of the blue background we use now).

Thank you for the time you spent, thinking about how to make Fedora better. You might send this wish to the fedora-devel mailinglist:
https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-devel-list

I will close this as NOTABUG.

I've tried to send it to fedora-devel mailinglist, but i got an automatic replay message says i'm not allowed to post in this list. 
:-(
I'm not going to try again.

I've spend an hour writing my email for nothing.

Well, you have to signup to the Mailinglist to be able to send a mail to it.

i'm not sure changing the background will really work.

I mean, I'm not sure that charge would look good that way.

We do have a crossfade though between the two to ease the transition though.
