Usplash artwork missing on upgrades

Bug Description

Binary package hint: usplash

I have the ubuntu-usplash-theme package installed and new usplash theme doesn't displayed on my computer, whereas in knot3 release notes from Corey Burger, it is written that it is now available.

Is this a fresh install or an upgrade?

If it is an upgrade, I can confirm this.

An upgrade, like you and all early Edgy testers I presume, so if you confirm it... this is a bug !

I've notice a broken "" symlink in usr/lib/usplash, if it can help...

Matt Zimmerman (mdz) wrote :

I think this is because the usplash-artwork alternative symlink is broken:

mizar:[~/src/canonical/usplash] readlink -f /usr/lib/usplash/
mizar:[~/src/canonical/usplash] ls -l `!!`
ls -l `readlink -f /usr/lib/usplash/`
ls: /usr/lib/usplash/ No such file or directory

Hmm, looking at it, it seems that this setup is now obsolete and should have been removed. Probably what happened was that the alternative was removed before the new artwork was installed, so the alternative was switched to manual.

Mumble mumble alternatives mumble mumble error-prone...

I can confirm this, too, in my Edgy (upgraded from Dapper). Instead of the ubuntu artwork, I have a "screen test" usplash.

Shoot for my Usplash artwork.

(By the way... Is it normal to have a too much little Usplash? The screen test doesn't fill the screen fully.)

I can confirm this. I get the same usplash, and it doesn't fill my screen totally.
I also upgraded from Dapper - reinstalling usplash and the theme didn't help..

I have the same thing as the posted screenshot. But I don't think my progress bar is working either. I just upgraded from ubuntu.

usplash (0.4-31) edgy; urgency=low
