First I just want to say I love this distro. and thanks to all that have put it together.
I am putting this post up because, I have been in a few situations I didn't want to advertise that I was running BT when booting up my laptop.
Don't get me wrong I love BT, just sometimes don't want others to see I am running it.
I looked everywhere on how to change the bootsplash and couldn't find a one stop solution so this is how I did it. This was originally a response to another post but the title wasn't clear.
You will need kernel headers or source to do this.
copy source from above link (change hXXp to http) to a text file save it ie. splash.c then compile it
backup original bootsplash used by fix-splash and make a link to bootsplash dir in /etc/ I did this because most themes are preset for this dir
root@bt:~# cd /wherever you saved the file
root@bt:~# gcc -o splash splash.c
download theme of choice for bootsplash or make your own and save to /etc/bootsplash/themes/
root@bt:~# mv -i /opt/bootsplash/bootsplash /opt/bootsplash/bootsplashold
root@bt:~# ln -s /opt/bootsplash /etc/bootsplash
root@bt:~# mkdir /etc/bootsplash/themes
make your new bootsplash
a few times for me if the splash didn't change after reboot i just ran fix-splash again and all was well
root@bt:~# ./splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/themes/coolsplash/config/bootsplash-1024x768.cfg >> /etc/bootsplash/bootsplash
root@bt:~# reboot now
if you don't like your change or miss the old one rename the backup back to bootsplash and fix-splash again
