Description:

Hiermit kann man per Rechtsklick eine oder mehrere Video-Dateien in AVI oder MP3 umwandeln.
Man kann auch beliebig viele MP3-Dateien normalisieren,also die Lautstärke angleichen.
Nun das beste zum Schluß ,man kann aus jedem beliebigen Bild per Rechtsklick eine message Datei für den Bootmanager erstellen und auch gleich installieren . Es ist auch möglich sich die Position der Betriebssystem-Auswahlliste auszusuchen(Siehe Screenshot). Das Service-Menü ist in einem Deb-Paket gepackt um die installation zu vereinfachen.
Auf meiner Homepage habe ich alles ausführlich erklärt.
Geht einfach auf http://www.pc-informatix.de/ und klickt links auf Tipps und Tricks und schaut euch Tipp 1 an.

There are 4 service-menues All service-menues should work on 64bit and 32 bit by installing the deb package except the boot-screen feature. To make it work you have to remove grub and install the correct grub-gfxboot version grub-gfxboot_0.97-40_i386.deb or grub-gfxboot_0.97-40_amd64.deb, you can find these packages and all sources on my homepage www.pc-informatix.de . Then you have to add this line to menu.lst

gfxmenu /boot/grub/message

after that and a

sudo grub-install /dev/sda

it should work.

I tested it on kubuntu 9.04 32 and 64 bit.
I hope that this will help. :-)

It would be nice to have the source available on kde-look as well. I clicked on the second link where I assumed I could find the source code but I'm not so hot at German, like I don't speak it or read it.

Its great that you have put together these service menus. I've been waiting to see service menus start to show up for Dolphin/konqueror. So after I extract it I'll be sure to try them out.

BTW are all these service menus also in German?

The sources are also on the Homepage, but nevertheless I added a link to the sources here. All but gfxboot service-menue should also be in english.
I don't know how to make dialogs with kdialog which depends on the language of the user. Maybe I could add a dialog at the beginning to choose a language, and then I will create different dialogs for each language. Is there a simpler way to do this???

Hi, I have programmed an other Version where you can choose your resolution it will also work for 1280x800 which is normaly not supported. You can choose if you want to stretch or to crop the Image. You can also see a preview of the boot-screen and you can define the exact position of the Text.

To make it work you have to install this first
sudo apt-get install gfxboot-theme-nld imagemagick
and then this deb package
http://pc-informatix.de/Artikel/Dateien/dan-servicemenu_0.0.6-1_amd64.deb

I hope that some people can test it. I testet it on my notebook with 1280x800 and an other computer with 1280x1024.

If this works everywhere without problems i will add the possibility to choose colors and transparancy of the Text.

The download link is broken. I have been looking for something that will work on my 1280x800 resolution for a gfxboot menu, I'd love to try this.

By writing in german you're not giving freedom, you're excluding people.

You are right, but I didn't complain about this. It was Kirilo who was not agree. I am fine with this situation. It was my first post on kde-look.org so didn't know that english is the preferred language here. I think that it is Ok to choose english and it makes sense. And I would be happy if this discussion about the used language could stop now. PLEASE :-)

I found out that higher resolutions can also be acheived by gfxboot, such as 1280x800. It works very well on my notebook.
Is it a good idea to use the resolution that is indicated in the file /etc/usplash.conf or will this causes problems on some computers???
Maybe if I have the time I will integrate these higher resolutions to this servic-menue.

As you probably know by now i am german, and in the description i wrote in german that you should read the instructions on my homepage. I suppose that you don't understand german so i will try to explain it in english. All service-menues should work on 64bit and 32 bit by installing the deb package except the boot-screen feature. To make it work you have to remove grub and install the correct grub-gfxboot version grub-gfxboot_0.97-40_i386.deb or grub-gfxboot_0.97-40_amd64.deb, you can find these packages on my homepage.

gfxmenu /boot/grub/message

after that and a

sudo grub-install /dev/sda

I hope that this will help you.
Sorry for my bad english, my french is better :-)

doch, kann ich noch (yes i do...)

thing's just that kde-* policies say to please talk english - whether broken or not. this holds for descriptions and comments and as long as we don't all learn mandarin the preferred way to not exclude most users - imagine people would start posting stuff in Indian or Hebrew, Greek, ... wahhhh ;-)

(kde-* was btw started by a german as well, including the "english please" policy)

Yes, but it's totally ridiculous - Linux users talk much about freedom, but they accept this kind of monopolistic language policy.
I hate to be forced to do something, including writing in English only.

sorry, but that argument is somewhere between dumb and ridiculous.

First:
you /are/ free to start/use a native forum/stuff base, no problem. Just here Frank asked to please speak english to access a wide user range and users agreed (or just left)

Next:
/every/ social group has requirements to enable it's functionality. one is a common language that allows members to interact. (there's a pretty famous -legendary- example on this, i think it was about some tower... ;-P

w/o that, sth. like a GNU/Linux desktop would just not exist. period.
the core oxygen icon team had a portuguese, an italian, and two native english speakers (one living in germany) -> the oxygen project would have initially stumbled and failed on the language matter)

english was (implicitly) chosen for historic reasons, because it's a pretty simple language and (in many regions of the world) understood at least as second language. (maybe it doesn't fit a schiller-like word composition, but this is not about -subjective- beauty, but just functionality)

The /only/ language that (if their internet users/population ratio grows to western standards) had a good reason to demand a higher position than english was (as mentioned) mandarin - i wish you much fun with your studies then...
(it's btw. a nice language, just totally strange and works pretty crap with keyboards...)

And before you bring it up:
esperanto was a nice and pretty fair try, but has so far failed - suck it, sorry :-(
Languages apparently just don't develop by artificial imposition, blame hollywood if you want, but it won't change things... ;-P

I can understand your arguments, they are totally OK for the time being (of course, I make extensive use of English, too), but please rethink your thoughts about Esperanto:
It and English are in a position very similar* to Linux and Windows: For reasons, which have nearly nothing in common with quality (but with power/leadership position) one is "weak" and the other is "strong". It is a mistake, to use the actual situation as an argument for the future, and there is no reason not to set up a linguistic convention ((when there will be political consent), which promotes Esperanto as common second language for general benefit.

*Of course, there is a huge difference, namely that no one must give up his/her native tongue for the second language Esperanto!

Esperanto has a hen/egg problem. as it has no (naturally) grown base, there's no notable content, thus nobody wants to learn it and therefore nobody will create (especially not exclusive) content using it...

The language itself has many advances (besides the fairness aspect) but the approach to spread it was (and therefore still is) broken (because it doesn't take human nature into account - logic and a nice dream has exactly no chance against laziness and national pride, just think of the language watching French...)

Linux is btw, not entirely "weak". It has become a major player on servers long time ago.
Regarding Desktops, i'd mostly blame Microsoft's pre-installation pacts & MS-Office.
Most users wouldn't even bother to update their virus signatures...(and of course would not have to...), so they'll certainly not install another OS.
Companies got tied to the Office documents (OOo Calc can still not handle most -weird- VBA scripts)
