    ... and the logo with the plymouth-theme-solar.

    1) Replacing the /lib/plymouth/ubuntu_logo.png picture with the Kubuntu logo.

    2) Updating the initramfs

    3) Testing



    --> Seems to work at here

    Dear All,

    I m using Kubuntu 12.04, Kde 4.9.4, Grub 1.99, in Vm ware &.1.1.7 it is 32 bit os and 1 GB of RAM.

    Problem: I have changed my default plymouth to ubuntu-sunrise-plymouth. It works fine while shuting down..... (there is no problem and i also edited some images also )
    but when it come to start-up then it uses its default theme Kubuntu 12.04 and the dot dot .... and a gray background. (means the plymouth which i installed is not working in startup)

    I am able to change the name of Kubuntu 12.04 and the gray background by editing the file /lib/plymouth/themes/text-plymouth as

    Name=Kubuntu Text
    Description=Text mode theme based on kubuntu-logo theme
    ModuleName=ubuntu-text

    [ubuntu-text]
    title=My Favoutite os 1234
    black=0xF5B8A9
    white=0x000000
    brown=0xA4BAC0
    blue=0x988592


    it works
    the red coloured text represents my changes... which i made


    Now i want that the plymouth theme which appear in shutting down should be work in start-up also

    or

    I want that can I use different plymouth them separate for Start-up and Shutdown ? is it possible then How ?\

    Your startup plymouth screen is the text mode screen



    by the docs: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Plymouth
    Quick Facts

    Plymouth:
    Uses KMS (Kernel Mode Setting) (where possible)...
    & /usr/share/doc/plymouth/README.Debian :
    High-color graphics on nVidia, ATI and other cards
    --------------------------------------------------

    Our default configuration uses low-color graphics on cards or drivers
    for which "Kernel Mode Setting" (in-kernel graphics drivers) are not
    available.

    This is because the driver that permits high-color graphics tends to
    cause issues with suspend and resume, and we opted to prefer that
    working.

    For nVidia and ATI users, the default "nouveau" and "radeon"
    drivers are Kernel Mode Setting enabled, but do not always
    provide 3D capability at the current time. By switching to
    using the restricted/non-free nvidia-glx or fglrx drivers,
    you will gain 3D capability at the loss of a high-color
    splash screen...

    You are telling:
    I am able to change the name of Kubuntu 12.04 and the gray background by editing the file /lib/plymouth/themes/text-plymouth...
    You probably mean the /lib/plymouth/themes/kubuntu-text/kubuntu-text.plymouth. As it says - "Description=Text mode theme based on kubuntu-logo theme"

    The text mode is the simplest plymouth mode - it is used as a backup when the hardware/settings are not supporting the KMS.


    You are not telling:

    - your GPU
    - your GPU driver
    - did the graphical Kubuntu plymouth splash work after the installation - before any edits. The default Kubuntu plymouth "high color " splash:




    You are asking:
    I want that can I use different plymouth them separate for Start-up and Shutdown ? is it possible then How ?
    You are seeing the first way - your system is falling back to the text mode on the boot and it is showing another (graphical) plymouth theme on the shutdown.

    The second way - by the docs: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Plymouth
    ...This allows Plymouth to display potentially different content based on whether the system is starting or stopping.
    I read this: If the plymouth theme supports the plymouth can display different content based on whether the system is starting or stopping...

    This worked fine for me, thanks! I managed to find the Kubuntu logo and switch it. Maybe you could spell out in a little more detail how you did that.
