This is a Plymouth theme created for Linux Mint. I take no credit for the coding, that goes to Erik Johnson's Seven Plymouth Theme 0.1. on KDE-Look.org.
A dot grows into the mint leaf and the LM is traced on top, then lens flare traces the LM till GDM2 starts.
Hope you enjoy the theme. This is my first posting so feed back is appreciated. Thanks!
