This is a wonderful Plymouth splash theme created by Andre "Osku" Schmidt, called Space Sunrise.

Here is a video of this splash theme:


I take no credit for this. It was all Andre "Osku" Schmidt. I merely found it extremely hard finding a link for it, so I decided to post it on here so others might benefit. However, I did use the original and make it using Inkscape so others won't have to. And this is why the font is the newest Ubuntu font.

Thus, if the creator has issues with my reposting of it, I'll be happy to remove it.


FYI, if you are having issues, such as it:

* is in low res mode.
* has corrupted graphic
* is decent but can’t switch to virtual terminal or VT is horribly in low res mode
* is decent but the splash screen only appears for a brief 1-2 second ( you are missing the dots moving :P ), before that you only see a black/blank screen

...check this out:


To Install:

Deb file:

- Just double-click the deb file and click 'install'.

Tar file:

- Copy 'space-sunrise' folder to /lib/plymouth/themes
- Copy the file 'splash' into /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d (Optional, for better buffer)

- Type in terminal:

sudo update-alternatives --install /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth default.plymouth /lib/plymouth/themes/space-sunrise/space-sunrise.plymouth 200
sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

- Choose the number to 'space-sunrise' in the options that pop up

sudo update-initramfs -u

Launchpad PPA:

In a terminal window, type the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:inameiname/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install plymouth-theme-space-sunrise



- Fixed an issue where installation fails if the plymouth theme, 'Ubuntu Sunrise' is also installed. Both debs happen to use the same 'splash' file and as such, you cannot overwrite a file that is part of another deb in a normal debian installation.


- Deb now available
- Thanks goes to Spox5 for the idea

- Fix for those with issues now available
- Only use instead of deb or tar if having trouble with it
- Thanks to MerlinW for the idea

(space_sunrise_1.0 fix for only those w/issues)

 Turning stops after short time

Great theme!

Just one question: is the wheel supposed to stop after ~⅓ of a full turn? When I boot my machine, the splash theme appears, the wheel rises and turns, but after a very short time it stops turning while booting continues.

I am afraid I do not use this theme anymore, as I find this adaptation of this one even cooler: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Earth+Sunrise+Plymouth+Theme?content=137171. However, from what I remember, and from that video link of it I have above, it seems it should keep turning the entire time. I may be wrong though, and if it is not for you, and that is the only issue, I would not worry about it.
