Change Bootsplash in Fedora 14

Filed under: Fedora — tuxicity @ 5:05 pm

The default bootsplash ( or Plymouth theme) in Fedora 14 is pretty boring, not to say ugly.

Fedora has more themes available, to install them all; As root:

yum install plymouth-theme-charge plymouth-theme-fade-in plymouth-theme-script plymouth-theme-solar plymouth-theme-spinfinity

That is 5 themes to choose from!
I chose plymouth-theme-spinfinity for its professional look. It requires two commands to do this.

As root;

plymouth-set-default-theme spinfinity
/usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd

That should to it, if you decide to use another theme don’t forget to do the second command to make it work.

Have fun,

Tuxicity.

Thanks to The Fedora Design team!

  1. You can shorten this somewhat to:
    plymouth-set-default-theme -R spinfinity

    The “-R” (or –rebuild-initrd) option regenerates the initial ram-disk boot image for you automagically.
