Plymouth - Changing start up Theme

Postby boxrick » 2012/07/18 16:51:43

I am attempting to get a different theme on load of CentOS 6. I attempted the below but it always sticks to the standard theme.

plymouth-set-default-theme --list
sudo plymouth-set-default-theme THEME --rebuild-initrd

In a nutshell any particular reasons this won't work and how can I resolve it ?

Thanks

No further feedback on this issue?

I tried changing the default theme without much luck - appears to be /usr/share/Plymouth/themes/text

There are some handy steps on

But there are slight differences between Ubuntu and CentOS, but even taking into account the placement of the files it doesn't seem to do a whole lot.

Plymouth - Changing start up Theme

I ran into this issue a while back and reached out to the plymouth mailing list in February and just recently got a response but I have not had time to try their suggestion. I pretty much abandoned trying to change the theme in March.

Hope this might help you out, maybe you can try the plymouth mailing list also.

I did try that since I did come across it, but essentially it is just listing the boot directory....

Seems odd how such a simple thing is made so difficult =(

From the looks of things it always defaults to the "text" plymouth. I suspect this is either something to do with the way it is configured or the drivers. If I replace "text" with something else and rebuild it always seems to fail.

My aim of this is to:

Have a custom splash screen - ie A box with some branding on it
& prevent the text output being seen.

Could someone possibly give a hand getting the Plymouth "text" theme modified to have some custom branding on? The issue with simply replacing it is in the module .so component which I do not know how to create, rebuilding guides are all on Ubuntu which is obviously no good in this case.

You have to add a vga parameter to the grub.conf.
