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:

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

[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/bin/sddm
Restart=always

[Install]
Alias=display-manager.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: https://github.com/mjkillough/notes/blob/master/boot-experience.md

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'

This works: cryptdevice=UUID=xxxxx

hexchain commented on 2016-03-26 10:32

Using a cryptdevice=PARTUUID=xxxxx parameter works with encrypt hook but not plymouth-encrypt.

I've got the repo up and running again, but the URL changed:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unofficial_user_repositories#nullptr_t

NOTE: If you are using my mirror, the repo name changed to nullptr_t to reflect username change
