boot splash using plymouth

Postby AmiNimA » Mon Jul 09, 2012 8:17 pm

Hi :D
I'm using debian wheezy on my laptop now. I was able to use plymouth as a boot splash for wheezy. plymouth is used in many distributions such as ubuntu, mint, fedora...
you can simply install plymouth by apt-get, and then manage it. to check what themes you have:

/usr/sbin/plymouth-set-default-theme --list

to use one of these themes, for example:

sudo /usr/sbin/plymouth-set-default-theme glow

to run plymouth at startup, edit this file: /etc/default/grub and add "splash" to the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet" so it would be like this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

then:
sudo update-initramfs -u
sudo update-grub

I'm not running parsix, so I cannot confirm if it works in parsix. but I think it should work...
I'm trying to make a simple theme based on Glow2 (in gnome look) which a logo of Parsix circles during boot. maybe it could be used in the next test release... I said maybe! :D

I don't know why plymouth does not work in my parsix 3.7 :(
