As suggested in the systemd previouly mentionned, adding RemainAfterExit=yes on both plymouth-start.service and plymouth-read-write.service fixes the problem. This package service files need to be updated to fix it for all users.

Hi, Since systemd 245, plymouth start screen never stops. See issue (direct link to the fix) here

@TheJackiMonster patch and autoconf are part of the base-devel group, which is assumed to be always installed when building packages. They should never be included in makedepends.

If (after the systemd update to v245) you suffer from a bug that the plymouth screen appears at random times even after the boot process has completed and renders your system unusable, one of the following workarounds is sufficient:

  • Add the line "RemainAfterExit=yes" to the [Service] section in /usr/lib/systemd/system/plymouth-start.service OR
  • "sudo systemctl mask plymouth-start.service" (and unmask after the issue has been fixed in plymouth)

Plymouth will be fixed soon, see

Installing the package requires 'patch' and 'autoconf'. So these should be added to the makedepends at least.

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.

NuBz commented on 2020-01-18 22:37

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.
