Getting Started:

  • If you're new to this and want more information, visit this link to better understand debian package installing.
  • Understand the working of Travis here

meilix-artwork comprises the sources for the two plymouth bootscreen theme packages for Meilix, one for logo, one for text based startup screen. These two packages should be installable/testable on any Debian or Ubuntu derivate system and could be configured as the default boot screen.

  • plymouth-theme-meilix-logo_1.0-1_all.deb
  • plymouth-theme-meilix-text_1.0-1_all.deb

The naming meilix-artwork follows the convention on Debian family distributions, see xubuntu-artwork etc.

Previously Plymouth theme package debuilding used to be done within the meilix build process (https://github.com/fossasia/meilix) but now we moved it to this independent repository to simplify testing. We use Travis CI (https://travis-ci.org/fossasia/meilix-artwork) for debuilding the two debian packages. At present these files are found in the deb branch (https://github.com/fossasia/meilix-artwork/tree/deb) of this repository

  • Step 4: Two deb packages will be built in the cloned folder namely:
