If you are a Ubuntu fan and have some free time to spend then here is something worth doing this weekend. This is a guide written by a Ubuntu user Towheed Mohammed and was shared at UbuntuForums. I just came across this while surfing and thought of sharing it with you guys.
This ebook will guide you with step by step information at every stage. Here is what the author says about this book.
In my quest to fully customize the graphics in Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) starting fom the Grub menu and working my way up to the desktop I’ve found bits and pieces of informations scattered throughout the threads. Most of these were not geared towards people new to Karmic. Also, a lot of the customization were not thorough enough, I wanted to do a lot more than what was given. This is when I decided to test the waters of customizing Karmic. The learning curve was very steep because I am also a beginner to Karmic and Linux on the whole. I decided to put everything I’ve learnt into what I hope will be a very comprehensive guide on customizing the graphics screens of Karmic starting from the Grub menu.
This guide is written for beginners and so the more experienced users may fnd it a bit repetitive. Some may even say that there are programs available that allows you to do the customizations easily, but I’ve found that such programs just scratches the surface of what’s possible.
In my advise if you are a real geek and have got some spare time this weekend then do try your hands on this one. It will be real fun. Even I am planning to follow this guide and will post screenshots of my work once I am done.
