Ubuntu already have a sleek boot screen. Sometimes you might want to change it to something different. If you are an OS X or a Windows user, you have to put aside your feelings and accept what they give to you. But you are a Linux user… You can do anything you want! So, why can’t we change the boot screen into one of these…?
Today I’m going to show you how to install three simple Plymouth (boot) themes on Ubuntu. You can install most of the other plymouth themes out there in the same way. So, stick with us…
Next select the number of the /lib/plymouth/themes/paw/paw.plymouth theme. (Refer to the screenshot above. In my case its 4 according to the screenshot)
Finally, enter the following command to update the system :
sudo update-initramfs -u
Enjoyed? These are the two popular methods of plymouth theme installation. You can use these methods to install most of the boot themes out there. There were also GUI apps to do this job but they are outdated. But still, it won’t kill you if you use the Terminal! Common, its better than the GUI apps!
