Great Plymouth for Mageia

In I always find really interesting things, this time I will be (I hope) pleasing users of Mageia, and not Arch or Debian as on other occasions 🙂

As an image says more than a thousand words, here is an example of what the Plymouth might look like:

¿Plymouth? ... WTF! 😀

Well the Plymouth is that loading / loading screen shown to us before our login screen appears (KDM, GDM, LightDM, etc)

I know that many will like it, because there are several of us who enjoy minimalism 😉

The author of this is lucaspatis, and as indicated in the post in KDE-Look to install it, just:

1. Download the file

Download Plymouth by Mageia

2. Unzip it and open a terminal in that same folder.

3. We copy the new folder that appeared to us (Mageia-Minimal) to the theme directory for plymouth:

sudo cp -r Mageia-Minimal /usr/share/plymouth/theme/

4. Now we will establish that we want to use THAT theme that we just put:

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme -R Mageia-Minimal

5. Ready, it only remains to restart and see the result 🙂

Anyway, I hope the users of Mageia that they read us 🙂

I personally do not use Plymouth, I prefer to see the whole log of letters and 'weird things' and thus know which daemon started badly and which did not LOL!

    Hahaha it's amazing, the funny thing is that this plymouth is similar to some old versions of mandriva but obviously with a different logo 😛

    That splash is practically a copy of one that Mandriva had years ago.

    Well, I honestly didn't use the Mandriva just once to see what it was like, so I don't remember absolutely anything about its plymouths or other details.

    Well yes, copy of Mandriva, rather, inheritance of Mandriva 😀
