Hi there!

Is it normal that plymouth-quit-wait.service takes around 22s of my boot time?

Hi, the plymouth.initcpio_install script is incompatible to breeze-plymouth[1] theme.

In addition to normal files under /usr/share/plymouth/themes/breeze/, this theme also has a images folder at /usr/share/plymouth/themes/breeze/images/. In the plymouth.initcpio_install script, around line 37, it checks and skips all non-file children under the folder.

I'm not sure I understand the reason why not just add the whole themes/${PLYMOUTH_THEME_NAME} folder to initramfs, maybe there are other themes that puts non-related files in the theme folder?

Missing images folder is causing problems like blank screen when ask password input should be shown, as reported in the breeze-plymouth package.

The problem with "a start job is running to Hold until boot process finishes up" running indefinitely is still there for me with sddm-plymouth.service. Anyone has any fix/workaround for that one already?

Thanks guys! :)

Thanks a lot for including plymouth-deactivate.service.

I think the changes to the dm-plymouth.service scripts aren't quite right: I think you want them to start after plymouth-deactivate.service, but before plymouth-quit.service.

plymouth-deactivate.service is in source files but didn't install it in package.

Could you please include a service file for SDDM?
It's current service file (sddm.service) contents are:

Description=Simple Desktop Display Manager
Documentation=man:sddm(1) man:sddm.conf(5)
After=systemd-user-sessions.service getty@tty1.service plymouth-quit.service

excellent Notes @mjkillough
I think these notes which you mention must be included in wiki and also plymouth-deactivate.service must be included in this package.
I use them and worked perfectly for me.

I have written some notes about getting a seamless Plymouth to X transition:

As described in [0], it seems the intended way to get a seamless transition is to call `plymouth deacivate` before starting X (rather than `plymouth quit`, as the .service scripts in this package do). I've created a `plymouth-deactivate.service` for this purpose, which is available in my notes above.

I'm still tweaking, but will eventually try to get my notes onto the wiki. Perhaps it would be worth including the `plymouth-deactivate.service` script in this package so it is easier for others to use?

With Infinality installed, I get:

-> Running build hook: [plymouth-encrypt]
==> ERROR: file not found: `/etc/fonts/conf.d/60-latin.conf'
