Thank you for the response I will check it out again in a bit and see what happens.

Edit: Just tried and all is fine.

@Nubz As we're speaking now the link to freedesktop is: which as far as I'm seeing can be downloaded without problems.

Cloning git no longer works since it will not download from

Obviously not the maintainers fault just wanted it to be known.

Could you please update to the github link instead? :) Seems FD is down.

This doesn't work for me it keeps defaulting to fall back mode and not using the actual theme, I've set fbdev in modules as well as nvidia in modules in mkinitcpio.conf but it still won't work. What am I missing? Plymouth-legacy worked like a charm but that got removed from AUR.

Anyone notice that is down atm? =\

The plymouth hook seems to need the DejaVu fonts by default, so shouldn't this depend on ttf-dejavu?

[edit] Sorry, forget about that. Just saw the optional dependency.

Does anyone experience issues with the compile option --enable-gdm-transition without gdm?

@nullptr_t I suggest adding systemd-logind.service to the After= line for sddm-plymouth.service. Without that, SDDM sometimes gets started before logind which means that the shut down/restart/sleep buttons don't work on the login screen.

@nullptr_t I'm booting with a minimal initramfs. Dropped udev from initramfs. I do get a warning message about not having udev. Should plymouth be capable of working without udev?

I just want to make sure I have the right idea about how plymouth works. How I currently boot is I get the bios logo -> rEFInd boot loader (switch to white screen) -> default linux kernel (changes to terminal once fsck outputs). If plymouth is working correctly I should keep the bios logo till the kernel prints the results of fsck right?
