Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub

Apologies if I filed this against the wrong package, please reroute as necessary.

When booting from a Ubuntu Live CD, the rebranded Ubuntu graphic shows the smaller 'logo' with colors filling in the people forming the circle. However, whether you select to boot to the live environment or to simply install Ubuntu, the splash screen displayed by plymouth shows a higher resolution Ubuntu graphics, but the logo is not colored.

I don't really have a preference, but it seems pretty unprofessional if the first two logos a new user sees as inconsistent.

This is supplied by the cdimage code; I'd appreciate the design team supplying me with improved graphics files as necessary.

(There's bound to be some inconsistency in Lucid anyway due to unfortunate software limitations. I hope to be able to do better in future.)

Colin, I've asked the design team to design new boot menu screens that
don't show branding, as we are unlikely ever to have perfect control of
resolution, colour, proportion. So we should keep it to icons and text
until we hit KMS and can get it exactly right.
