Install Space-Sunrise Plymouth Splash Ubuntu 10.04 LTS “Lucid Lynx”

Here is a guide to install Space-Sunrise Plymouth Splash. This theme is made by Andre "Osku" Schmidt and very difficult to find on the internet. Thanks to inameiname you can now download it from the gnome-look website.

Note: The download files have been replaced by a .deb file so all you have to do is download the 129678-space_sunrise_1.0_all.deb file here, double click it and all the files will be installed. You can skip the following lines:

cd Desktop

sudo cp -R splash /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d

sudo cp -R space-sunrise/ /lib/plymouth/themes/

Good luck and have fun :)

To install the Space-Sunrise Plymouth Splash:

First download the Plymouth theme here. When downloaded open the 129678-Space-Sunrise-Splash-Theme.tar.gz fille and extract the content to your Desktop. On your Desktop open the Space-Sunrise-Splash-Theme folder and double click the space-sunrise.tar.gz and splash.tar.gz files and extract the contents on your Desktop. To install the Space-Sunrise Plymouth theme open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and copy+paste the following lines:

Note: The preview window doesn't show the plymouth theme full size so it's a bit out of proportions.
