changing splash screen in ubuntu

Unlike my previous post if you  want to change the splash screen you can do so with plymouth-manager.

Download it from here and install it with gdebi package manager.

Run it from command line as “plymouth-manager”.

Click on “Themes” and install any theme.

Now choose from the available list

Reboot and watch newly installed theme.

Share it if you liked it.
