Cool Ubuntu 14.04 Custom Boot Screen?


I am creating my own remastered version of Ubuntu. I was wondering if it's possible to edit the boot logo with your own custom logo. I have researched for a bit, and can't seem to find anyway to actually customize the boot screen with your own logo. It would be great if someone could help me out with this.

I remember this being easy with xsplash but I'm guessing after double checking Ubuntu no longer uses it?

I would take a look at the links below. It would seem Ubuntu uses a package/daemon called Plymouth. Plymouth has its own scripting language, aptly named Plymouth, for all of its flashy. The image is a simple PNG image. In the /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth file there are settings.


This is where the service is ordered which image to load and which script to load. For flashy, I'm guessing you'll need to script it. I looked for a few seconds and found many, many guides.
