First thank you folk for your effort.

It seems not working with my trying though I have done 2 correction of your instruction in the process of learning, since I am inexperience in Ubuntu in general or Linux as it matter.

ie: “sudo update-alternatives –install…”
and “sudo update-alternatives –config default.plymouth”

I mean, it seems no indication of any error after execute your instruction, but nothing happen after restarting my computer.

Any idea why it does not working? A solution is definitely grateful to see that splash screen.

Correction to my previous post.

Actually your instruction is completely fine, it is just due to issue of 2 continues dash shown as single one on webpage.

However, I still need your help to make it worked. A gain, thank you!

I have used this plymouth several times on different systems. I shared it with one of my friend. he has been using it on some different hardware. but the issue is that the spinning object get displaced from its original place. I mean the logo is available in the center but the spinning object is not spinning around the logo, rather it is displaced on the left side and spins.
have anyone found the same issue and/or solution for the issue
