Change default loading background from grey to desktop background instead on boot?

Post by Sotelach on Sat Jan 09, 2016 2:24 am

When I boot into ChaletOS is there any way to change the default loading light grey background to match that of my desktop background?

Thanks in advance

I used the following method, it worked for me anyway.

I checked the image size within each of the following two folders and made two copies of the image I wished to use to match that size, I named one wallpaper.png and the other background.png.

I then replaced the wallpaper.png image within /lib/plymouth/themes/xubuntu-logo/ and then the background image within /lib/plymouth/themes/PMtheme/ with the corresponding ones I made previously. You may need to change permissions to enable you to replace the original image.

After this I ran the following command in a terminal ¨sudo update-initramfs -u¨ and restarted my PC.
