Re: Can't install Plymouth themes
To fix plymouth at, the terminal, try
Enter your password. You will not see it echoed to the screen. This may fix plymouth manager but i'm not sure.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm
Install the themes you want to try from synaptic package manager.
Once installed, open a terminal and type
This will give a list of the installed themes. Follow the instructions and select the theme you want. Then, in the terminal, type
sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
This will update initramfs and, after rebooting, you should see the new theme.
sudo update-initramfs -u
This has worked for me.
