Thank you so much, I was looking for that package for a few days! I don't know why they don't host it on the main Zorin site, it promotes download of the Zorin O/S after all...

you should add a preview option.
might need to add a dependency (plymouth-x11).
sudo plymouthd
sudo plymouth --show-splash

it's great on my one pc, but on the other i get:
_________________________
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/splash-screen-manager", line 22, in <module>
defaultfile = open('/lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth', 'r') # Opening the Default plymouth theme file for reading
IOError: [Errno 40] Too many levels of symbolic links: '/lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth'
_______________________
so looks like it has too many symlinks, like it ran into a loop or something. do you have any ideas?

Can you please open /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth and copy the text in the file to here so that I can take a look at what's wrong.

um... for some reason it is a link to this folder (etc/alternative/text.plymouth)... idk what's going on there, i'll try to fix it.

The /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth file isn't supposed to link to the etc/alternative/text.plymouth file. To fix this open the Terminal and type in sudo nautilus and navigate to etc/alternative/ and make a link to the default.plymouth file. Cut the link to /lib/plymouth/themes/ and rename it back to default.plymouth after deleting the already existing default.plymouth file. Now try and see if the Splash Screen Manager works.

hmm that was weird. the /etc/alternatives/default.plymouth linked to some folder which contained a plymouth theme's archive, not the extracted theme. so i deleted the /etc/alternatives/default.plymouth, copied the text from my other pc, changed the theme parts, so it would work, and copied that to /etc/alternatives/default.plymouth. then i redid the link /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth. now it works :D
thanks, i can't believe i didn't notice this before, no wonder the plymouth wasn't showing before, either ^^

great job on the program, btw, really an improvement from copying the themes in and running the commands every time :)

hi Dear,
this is a really usefull app. One question remains: will there be an official repository for Ubuntu and other ubuntu-based Distributions like LinuxMint for example??

This wpuld relly be cool, because it makes not only installing plymouth-themes much easier but also to keep it updated.

I would really welcome such a development. You could open up your repository here for example:

http://launchpad.net. This would be helpful for us ubuntu-users too.

Thanks for this nice little app and perhaps - one day - you could work together with the developer of ubuntu-tweak.

Greetings
