Creating or modifying USplash /w Ubuntu (or any debian distribution)

Here is a really simple solution to creating a splash screen for use with usplash (default on ubuntu hardy 8.x) by modifying the default ubuntu splash screen or any other theme.

1. apt-get build-dep usplash-ubuntu-theme
2. apt-get source usplash-ubuntu-theme
3. open the splash screens from the usplash-theme-ubuntu-x.xx directory with a graphics editor such as gimp
4. convert to rgb
5. modify the splash screens as desired
6. convert back to indexed /w limit of 16 colors
7. apt-get source -b usplash-ubuntu-theme
8. dpkg -i usplash-ubuntu-theme-x.xx.deb
