This doesn't work for me it keeps defaulting to fall back mode and not using the actual theme, I've set fbdev in modules as well as nvidia in modules in mkinitcpio.conf but it still won't work. What am I missing? Plymouth-legacy worked like a charm but that got removed from AUR.

Anyone notice that is down atm? =\

The plymouth hook seems to need the DejaVu fonts by default, so shouldn't this depend on ttf-dejavu?

[edit] Sorry, forget about that. Just saw the optional dependency.

Does anyone experience issues with the compile option --enable-gdm-transition without gdm?

@nullptr_t I suggest adding systemd-logind.service to the After= line for sddm-plymouth.service. Without that, SDDM sometimes gets started before logind which means that the shut down/restart/sleep buttons don't work on the login screen.

@nullptr_t I'm booting with a minimal initramfs. Dropped udev from initramfs. I do get a warning message about not having udev. Should plymouth be capable of working without udev?

I just want to make sure I have the right idea about how plymouth works. How I currently boot is I get the bios logo -> rEFInd boot loader (switch to white screen) -> default linux kernel (changes to terminal once fsck outputs). If plymouth is working correctly I should keep the bios logo till the kernel prints the results of fsck right?

It depends. If you are using systemd in you initramfs, you do not need to use udev [0]. If you are not using systemd, you should use the udev hook.

Should plymouth work properly with initramfs without udev?

Same problem with fbdev: I see the theme with three dots (default theme). The custom theme breeze is not loaded.

UPDATE: Solution: I had to add the btrfs module to be loaded in grub. Don't know why it worked beforehand, though.

Yes, you need to install xf86-video-fdev and add it to the modules of you mkinitcpio.conf

You don't need to advance in testing, I'll test it. Just give the possible solution a try. Yes, there is a difference between the hooks 'sd-plymouth' and 'plymouth'.

For plymouth I always use and have used fbdev with drivers like nvidia loading with xorg-server after plymouth with fbdev. fbdev is also suggested by the plymouth developers [1].
