Playing with plymouth themes

In the quest for beautification of the few second boot up of the system, I wanted to play with some of the readily available plymouth themes.

 To see the list of available themes,

# plymouth-set-default-theme -l | sort
charge
details
fade-in
hot-dog
script
solar
spinfinity
spinner
text

To change the current theme,

# plymouth-set-default-theme -R {theme-name} && dracut --force
Here are some screenshots -

xfdashboard settings

In one of my previous posts, I had included instructions for using different themes with xfdashboard. With update to version 0.3.7, xfdashboard has a graphical settings manager.

Here are some screenshots - I believe they are fairly self explanatory.
