How do I change the plymouth theme in openSUSE 13.2 GNOME?

Hi. I just installed openSUSE in uefi mode I want to change the default plymouth theme. Can anyone tell me how can I do that? thanx

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme -R *themename*

See also “man plymouth-set-default-theme”.

Can these themes be from and do I have to put them in the /lib/plymouth/themes directory?

Of course they can be from anywhere you like, as long as they are intended for plymouth.
You cannot e.g. use some random GNOME (or whatever else) theme as boot splash.

And on openSUSE you don’t put them to /lib/plymouth/themes/, but to /usr/share/plymouth/themes/.

If in doubt, please post a link to some such theme and I will have a look whether it’s suited for plymouth.

Apparently Ubuntu uses /lib/plymouth/themes/, and “update-alternatives” for the default theme, so you shouldn’t use Ubuntu install scripts to install a theme.
As I said, just copy the folder with the theme to /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ and run “sudo plymouth-set-default-theme -R themename
