Scrolling text reminds me that something is happening
I agree with this, I prefer an informative boot with error messages shown. If Plymouth had been enabled a few weeks ago I would have been pulling my hair out when ALSA decided to go tits up - the red text and kernel module error while booting gave me instant information and I worked on the fix right away without needing to do any leg work.
That being said it's no biggie removing it manually
I just removed plymouth and its themes with aptitude, however because only the latest kernel's initramfs was updated, I could still see the plymouth when booting the other kernel(s). I had to issue:
sudo update-initramfs -k all -u
to update all the initramfs and remove completely plymouth.
The above command must be issued as well, in case of changing a theme, if someone is using more than one kernel (i.e. default and liquorix for my case).
I guess it's not a big deal but it might prove useful to someone...
Hi there !
After a simple update (not a fresh install), I don't have the pulsing logo, only a grey progress bar.
Even after enabling script theme and update-initframe.
@DarthWound - if you are using the proprietary NVIDIA or ATI driver, try this:
BTW if you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail instead of a PM.
Corenominal, I love you! Previously, when I had Statler installed, I was so annoyed by the constant change of resolution during boot, that I just gave up! Now it's really, really smooth transition and I really want to thank you for you excellent work.
You might be a geek if:
Corenominal covers up the start up visual monitoring code and you miss it.
@anonymous: thanks, it's ok.
Sometimes the logo ain't aligned center but a bit on the right, but it doesn't matter ^^
I noticed this too... you can fix it by editing /usr/share/plymouth/themes/script/script.script and change line 20 from
logo.sprite.SetX (Window.GetX() + Window.GetWidth() / 2 - logo.image.GetWidth() / 2);
logo.sprite.SetX (Window.GetWidth() / 2 - logo.image.GetWidth() / 2);
And update initramfs...
I created another plymouth theme here:
