Installation

Clone this repository.

sudo git clone https://github.com/krishnan793/PlymouthTheme-Cat.git /usr/share/plymouth/themes/PlymouthTheme-Cat

After installing you can test the theme through (as root, preferably on a tty):

# plymouthd
# plymouth --show-splash
# plymouth --quit

On most distros

(Tested on openSUSE Tumbleweed)

Set GRUB2 up

Check /etc/default/grub. It should include the following:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
  • If there are other parameters defined in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="..." you don't have to remove them unless they conflict with the ones above.
  • quiet and splash are required to start plymouth
  • Additionally you might have to enable KMS e.g. in case you're using integrated graphics by Intel by adding i915.modeset=1.

Reconfigure GRUB2, if you had to add something:

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Activate the theme

Check that the theme ended up in the right place:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme --list

Set the theme as default:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme PlymouthTheme-Cat -R

The -R option rebuilds the initrd automatically which is necessary.

On Ubuntu

Install the theme.

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/share/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth default.plymouth /usr/share/plymouth/themes/PlymouthTheme-Cat/PlymouthTheme-Cat.plymouth 100

Select the default theme.

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

Update the initramfs image.

sudo update-initramfs -u

Now reboot.

If you want to install this on < Ubuntu 16.04, change the path from /usr/share/plymouth to /lib/plymouth/ . You need to do this on the PlymouthTheme-Cat.plymouth file also.
