    Wink How do I change the splash screen LUKS prompt text?

    I use LUKS to encrypt one of my partitions (I dual boot 4 gaming) and I used plymouth to change the splash screen to something cool
    but when it asks me for my password, it has all of this garbled text that doesn't look too pleasing.

    It says "Unlocking the disk /dev/disk/by/uuid/*****/blah/blah/blah/"
    and it runs off the screen.

    How do I change the text to just say "Enter Decryption Password"

    Okay, so I figured it out myself

    Ran these commands:

    Code:
    cd /lib
    grep -ir "unlocking the disk"
    Which returned this file:
    /lib/cryptsetup/cryptdisks.functions

    There are two instances of "Unlocking the disk" in that file, and I changed em both.

    Worked like a charm!
