I don't consider myself as a very experienced user, but the procedure is easy.
1. Download "plymouth
" and "plymouth
-themes-all" with Synaptic.
2. As root in a terminal, type plymoth-set-default-theme xxxx (where xxxx is the theme desired; I used solar).
3. Still as root in a terminal, type "update-initramfs -u -t"
