Hi there,

*Plymouth theme is theoretically finished* and ready to test (this is more
difficult to do and *it may harm your system*) Right now you have to change
files manually, but I may add a script.

   1. If you haven't installed Git, do it by typing sudo apt-get install
   git or sudo aptitude install git on the Terminal.
   2. Then, type git clone git://
   github.com/aldomann/ubuntu-gnome-plymouth.git in order to download the

Alternatively you can open this:
https://github.com/aldomann/ubuntu-gnome-plymouth and download the ZIP file
from the right bottom corner of the page.

*How to test it:* asssuming you use Ubuntu GNOME, you only have to replace
the files located in /lib/plymouth (make sure you open nautilus on root,
this can be done by typing *gksu nautilus* on the Alt+F2 dialogue, and make
sure you make a backup of those files).

How to see it in action:

   1. One way is rebooting your system.
   2. Another way (easier, and reboot is not needed) is installing this
   lovely package: Plymouth
   Once installed run sudo plymouth-preview on your Terminal. The plymouth
   theme will run and end automatically, you don't have to to anything.
