The Cantarell fonts (Regular and Thin) need to be added to the plymouth-encrypt install script. The default BGRT theme uses them for the password dialog and update messages. A optional dependency to 'cantarell-fonts' would also make sense.

When selecting the BGRT theme, the Spinner theme should also be selected as it's a variation and images are recycled.

Here you can find my commit with patched mkinitcpio install hooks, if you'd like to merge:

checking for intltool-extract... no 
configure: error: intltool-extract is required to build plymouth 
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). 

intltool seems to be required for boot. (New dep as it wasn't required yesterday)

Could you change the git url to https? The sources are not verified, so adding transport encryption and CA trust might increase security a little bit here.

When using theme bgrt, it doesn't display properly. Because upstream delete all images from the dir of theme bgrt recently. I think we should pick up image dir from the property "ImageDir", and add files from there in plymouth.install.

I've adopted the package since I think it is easy for me to port development to the stable version, which I maintain, too. This development version got a few patches ported from stable and is up-to-date now.

I currently don't have the required resources to continue contributing to this package.
Feel free to take ownership.

For anyone struggling to get themes to work during boot--this is the fix alluded to by Aetf:

I can't get sd-plymouth to take a graphical password input, I have to esc and input into the text console to proceed. I have used sd-plymouth and sd-encrypt (with and without plymouth-encrypt) mkinitcpio hooks with graphics driver modules included and I have used luks.uuid=, and luks.options= on the kernel command line. It works fine with the udev equivalent hooks (plymouth, plymouth-encrypt) and command line options (cryptdevice=).

The gdm-plymouth service is complety borked on my machine. I had to chroot and enable the regular gdm service instead
