Changing Standard Plymouth

To change the standard Plymouth theme open a terminal and run the command:

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

You will see an output similar to (but not exactly like) this:

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
There are 3 choices for the alternative default.plymouth (providing /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth).

Selection Path Priority Status
0 /lib/plymouth/themes/kubuntu-logo/kubuntu-logo.plymouth 150 auto mode
1 /lib/plymouth/themes/bodhi-text/bodhi-text.plymouth 10 manual mode
* 2 /lib/plymouth/themes/bodhi-theme/bodhi-theme.plymouth 10 manual mode
3 /lib/plymouth/themes/kubuntu-logo/kubuntu-logo.plymouth 150 manual mode

Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:

Select the number of the theme you would like to change to and then press the enter key.

Then run the command:

sudo update-initramfs -u

Changing Text Plymouth

You can change the fallback/text plymouth splash by following the same process detailed above with the name text.plymouth instead of default.plymouth
