How to chose Plymouth theme?

Hi there,

I installed some additional Plymouth themes with YaST, but how the heck do I chose now which theme to enable?

In YaST bootloader config tool you can change the GRUB interface, but not Plymouth.

Where do you change the theme now?


Theme name is set in /etc/plymouth/plymouthd.conf. You need to rebuild initrd after that (command mkinitrd).

Or use “plymouth-set-default-theme”, with the ‘-R’ option to rebuild the initrd as well.

“plymouth-set-default-theme -l” will list all installed themes, and the ‘-r’ option will switch back to the default theme.

See also “man plymouth”.
