What kind of hook do you mean? Plymouth is added to the initrd, systemd services for the display managers are included. Do you mean something like the plymouth-start.service?

nullptr_t please add systemd hook

I agree with TingPing. If you want pkgconf for building your packages, you can manually install it until it joins base-devel. plymouth builds fine with pkg-config, so there is no need to add pkgconf to any package providing .pc files.

pkgconf provides pkg-config so thats what you would depend upon. Even then deprecated is a strong word and it would be very silly for literally every AUR package to add a dep to pkg-config.

plymouth is part of you kernels's initramfs and gets build into it while building the image. You have to change that in your /etc/mkinitcpio.conf.

I have no experience with plymouth and systemd hooks yet, but works fine for me with grub and UEFI.

I can't get plymouth to display a boot screen. I'm using rEFInd, UEFI, and proprietary Nvidia KMS. The shutdown screen shows up, but during boot I just get a white background. Where the systemd output should be I do have a black screen covering it up, but no icon. So, I think Plymouth is definitely loading up, but not for rEFInd.

Should there be any files added to the boot partition for plymouth?

@ArchangeGabriel: Thank you, now that is ok!

@differ: Looks like you’re trying to build with only the PKGBUILD. As you can see on this very same page, they are 17 sources for this packages, from which 16 are local ones. If you want to build using makepkg, you should download a whole snapshot from the link in the menu on the right (

I'm trying to get plymouth.

When I run makepkg command I get following error:

==> ERROR: arch-logo.png was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

Can anyone tell me what to do with it?
