Whether or not a .png file will work for the splash screen will depend |
on the platform. It won't work on windows, but I think it does work on
gtk. I'm not sure about the mac (carbon or cocoa).
You can try it simply by specifying a png on the command line:
eclipse -showplash /path/to/splash.png
The other thing to consider is that the default splash screen search
looks for splash.bmp, so you would need to specify a full path using
-showsplash or osgi.splashLocation. Or perhaps try renaming the png to bmp.
