You can safely ignore that 'not found' message. As for your background image, did you use an image of the same width and height (like 1920x1440) as the original? Did you check that it had the same permissions as the original? Did you name it background.png or try to use a different name?
And thanks very much for your response.
The file in question is 1200x750, I did change the permissions and made it executable,
like the original background.png. Used the same name "background.png".
switch-themes PCOBOX wouldn't register it at all. Replacing that with the original
"background.png" file had a little trouble registering also, when I tried to
restore the theme in initrd later, as per my previous message. The
initrd files are all shrunk in size at that point.
I can make the file 1920x1440, change permissions accordingly, and try
switch-themes PCOBOX again. After invoking remove-theme.
Is this what you recommend ?
One last hurdle 'till smooth sailing on this sounds like. I think I'm
registering what you're driving at. It's not possible I rewrite the
theme, you know, I don't have the Syntax. They don't teach
Linux up here in northern Illinois in the colleges. Wish they did kinda.
So, maybe I'll get a new novel splash screen for a novel purpose
