Does anyone know how to get this working? The wiki guide doesn't cut it for me. It gets stuck showing boot messages and then nothing.

@ganthore pkg-config should not be in any dependencies on any packages. It is part of the group "base-devel" and should be on all systems that build packages by default. If you don't have that package installed, that means your system is incorrectly configured and you should install base-devel group.

You need to add pkg-config as a dependency.

Hi, it seems plymouth has some overlap with some files by geoclue/geoclue2 in /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/geoclue
This seems a very unnecessary conflict, as it seems it has not business with these files, so could this conflict maybe be avoided?

Hello, I can confirm the problem with gdm-plymouth.service, when used, it breaks systemd startup with the message "A start job is running for Hold until boot process finishes up", blocking gettys and cosole logins.

Hey, please consider using a stronger hash algoritm than MD5 (for example SHA256) and a HTTPS download link such as this one:

With the gdm-plymouth service, it is impossible for me to use a TTY, because it shows me the following instead of a login prompt:

[*** ] A start job is running for Hold until boot process finishes up (system uptime here / no limit)

Is anyone else getting a white screen when UEFI booting? The plymouth boot spinner comes up eventually, but only for a second or 2 before getting into the desktop.

After booting with rEFInd shouldn't the plymouth boot spinner come up right away?

For anybody having troubles with plymouth themes after the new release from upstream, please refer to post #6 of this thread:
