The default rEFInd boot manager's logo causing the boot screen to have a white background, as rEFInd use the color of banner image's the top left corner pixel as its background color. I would like to have a black one, so I try to create a boot logo for it with a black background.
I would like to have a Slackware logo display
on the boot screen, look at the the logos from
Logos, Propaganda" page, I like this one
But it is a little small and scaling it up does not look nice, I tried to vectorized it
with Potrace but the result does not look
good. Searching around for the font use in the image, and found out it is computer modern
typewriter text. There is this project
Computer Modern Unicode fonts
that has the computer modern font converted from Khuth's famous TeX fonts. Now I need to use
a vector drawing program, I know inkscape could do it,
and proceed to install it and all its dependencies with the help
of sbopkg. The installation went well.
Here is the result:
The svg source could be downloaded here.
There is a SlackBuild script for rEFInd now. The logo's png and svg source are
included in the build script.
