I for one have been criticised, pointed out and in some cases applauded countless times for my serious addiction to customize whatever environment that I use for my system. I am sure many people also get it, just like me. If you love something with all your heart, you often feel the need to make it your own. That’s what this blog post is all about. I would like to write more than what one blog post could suffice. So just look for the tags rediscover to find more blog post like this.
This is the boring boot screen when you power up. Before login, of course.
The method is pretty straightforward and very easy to follow.
- Open Thunar/Nautilus or any file explorer you use in your distribution on root since we will be editing system files here.
- Navigate to /usr/share/themes or /usr/share/Plymouth/themes/Xubuntu-logo
- There you would find files named as logo.png and logo_16bit.png . Replace these files with the image you want as your boot logo. Convert the image files to the .png format and take care to rename the image exactly as “logo.png” and “logo_16bit.png” for them to take effect.
- Now run this command in the terminal to re-generate an initramfs image.
sudo update-initramfs -u
- Reboot to see the change.
That’s it for this part, live in the mix.
