where should I put my splash screen in xfce?

Post by Arik_Chen » Thu Sep 11, 2008 8:12

I am using xfce as my windows manager, I download a splash theme, and put it in /etc/share/themes.
however the Session and startup manager failed to detect it.
Is there other place existed for splash screen?

You actually need to open the settings and change the settings to use that splash instead. It won't autodetect and change splash themes for you.
You actually have to change the splash theme yourself. Unless XFCE has changed since the last time I used it.

In the splash screen manager, there is a list for you to choose which splash you want to use.
I think the manager should find the splash theme somewhere.

Is there a way to browse and find where the original theme is at? then you could follow that and put your new theme in there.

I'm not at my laptop right now, I'm at work. Sorry, I can't be of much help at this moment. You could try to edit the splash file manually.
nano ~/.config/xfce4-session/xfce4-splash.rc

I think that should help. I'm trying to do this from memory. Sorry.
