How to Enable bootsplash on Manjaro?

If you use Manjaro and you like to have a harmonic and beautiful Linux system from boot to desktop, follow me as i will show you in this tutorial how to enable and configure the bootsplash screen on Manjaro. Let's go

Step 1. Install bootsplash-systemd and bootsplash-manjaro (or any bootsplash theme you like)
Step 2. Edit the mkinitcpio.conf file: sudo nano /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
2.1. Find the HOOKS= line and add: bootsplash-manjaro (or the name of the theme you have chosen)
Step 3. Edit grub configuration file: sudo nano /etc/default/grub
3.1. find the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= line : remove the quiet word and add at the end: bootsplash.bootfile=bootsplash-themes/manjaro/bootsplash (adapt according to chosen theme)
P.S: You can find the installed themes on the following path "/usr/lib/firmware/bootsplash-themes" {alertInfo}
Step 4. Regenerate the intramfs : (adjust command to the kernel you’re using ): sudo mkinitcpio -p linux419
Step 5. Finally update Grub : sudo update-grub
Step 6. Reboot and enjoy.

  1. If I do sudo pacman -Ss bootsplash-manjaro, it doesn't find anything

    1. Welcome to your website.
      Try searching for it using a software manager (ex pamac-gui which is installed by default).
      Please watch the video for more informations.

  2. Does anyone have set this up together with luks encryption? The bootsplash-manjaro doesn't ask me for a password. I have to press ESC, then enter the password.

    1. Hello, I think bootsplash with luks encryption need a complete new tutorial which I will try to take care of it in the next few days Allah willing. We will try.
