[Bug 553386] [NEW] Plymouth theme should use circular progress indicator

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kubuntu-default-settings

Currently the Kubuntu plymouth theme uses 4 dots that get filled as if
it was indicating a left-to-right progress, indeed once all 4 dots are
filled, they get "emptied" and filled all over again.

This is very bad behavior since it makes the user wonder why it is
emptying again. Instead the circle indicator as seen in Plasma, when a
widget is busy, should be used. To indicate that there is progress, but
not exactly how far along through booting it is.
