Forgive me if I am off base here, I just briefly scanned through this thread. But I think if Plymouth works best with this wallpaper, it should be changed.

Personally I like this wall paper better than the underwater one and I would love to see it used as the replacement. I think this one has a more professional and polished look to it. If I'm not mistaken both are from the same artist so hopefully there would be no hard feelings about it. But in the end it is art and personal opinions are subjective. If its not too much work I would probably change my personal boot splash to this artwork anyway. Although that does become a pain on multiple systems.


Plymouth works well with the underwater wallpaper as well. Since these are personal preferences, and easily changed, no further changes are contemplated.


Since Josk has created a whole theme based on this maybe he could include the plymouth screen for you. It would be nice, as mentioned in another thread if both themes were shipped by Warren, perhaps with a wiki entry on how to change them.

@Kent, Henry and Stevo: before you forget, could you put any tips you came up with in the Wiki entry when you have a chance?

You can include this link: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Softwar ... th/Scripts
It's a simple explanation of the scripting language used in the themes.

Sure, will see if there's anything I can add---I like adding "-R" to the command to set the theme, which automatically rebuilds the initrd file. and Ubuntu puts plymouth themes in /lib/plymouth instead of /usr/share/plymouth/themes, something to remember if adapting a theme off the web.

Here's a dropbox link to my first attempt at a plymouth-themes-mepis11 package

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18456966/plymou ... 10%2B1.zip

1) unzip and use gdebi-kde to install the .deb

2) in a konsole run:
Quote:
su -c '/usr/sbin/plymouth-set-default-theme MEPIS-11.0'
su -c 'update-initramfs -u -t'
I like it! I'm going to make that my new standard (at least until I see what WW does).

For those upgrading from the repos, you will need to install plymouth-themes-mepis11 (0.1mcr110+2),
and follow these instructions to implement the boot splash.

http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php?title=Plymouth

Since it is a new file, it will not be upgraded by marking all upgrades and applying.

Hello guys. I have a microproblemette. I am enjoying upgraded RC2 M11 and thought I would try out this exciting "plymouth" stuff. So I did as suggested........

Sadly I got this message:
    # /usr/sbin/plymouth-set-default-theme -R MEPIS-11.0
    update-initramfs: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.36-1-mepis-smp has been altered.
    update-initramfs: Cannot update. Override with -t option.

Sure enough, boot looks the same but I do get a nice progress/regress bar at end of day.

Before blundering about I thought I would ask the advice of the people who know.

 Re: [SOLVED] Urgent: testing needed
hi,

the command that i need to use is
Code:
update-initramfs -u -t
and it looks like that is what it's asking for.

good luck :thumbup:

if/when it works it may take a few minutes though.

For a specific kernel you need to use the -k option
For example the command update-intafms -u -t updated the smp kernel, but in my case I am running the pae kernel. The command I needed was

Code:
update-intrafms -u -t -k 2.6.36-1-mepis-pae
