CUSTOMISING PLYMOUTH THEME


You can change your plymouth theme ( Ubuntu boot splash) as you wish. In this post I will tell you how to change your plymouth theme. Plymouth themes can be downloaded from the internet. You can download plymouth themes from gnome-look website. You have to extract the downloaded theme file.

Now open a terminal by pressing CTRL + ALT +T. Now type the following in the terminal:

       

gksunautilus



Now copy the extracted theme file to /lib/plymouth/themes

Copy the file “splash” to /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d (Optional, for better buffer).

Now type the following in the terminal:


       

sudo update-alternatives --install /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth default.plymouth /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-sunrise/ubuntu-sunrise.plymouth 200

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth



Choose the number associated with your theme.
