Plymouth provides a boot-time I/O multiplexing framework - the most obvious
use for which is to provide an attractive graphical animation in place of
the text messages that normally get shown during boot. (The messages are
instead redirected to a logfile for later viewing.) However, in event-driven
boot systems Plymouth can also usefully handle user interaction such as
password prompts for encrypted file systems.
This package contains the X11 renderer for a graphical boot splash.

plymouth (0.9.3-1ubuntu7) bionic; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/misc-changes.patch: Drop call to stop_animation as it would
unreference a bunch of variables and may cause a crash writing a NULL VMA.
(LP: #1745406)

plymouth (0.9.3-1ubuntu6) bionic; urgency=medium
* Drop references to dejavu fonts in the initramfs hook; our themes only
ever use the Ubuntu font, and any other themes that want a different
font should handle this themselves.
2018-04-01 - Dimitri John Ledkov <>
plymouth (0.9.3-1ubuntu5) bionic; urgency=medium
* Move the Ubuntu font, dejavu font, fontconfig dependencies to
plymouth-label package, such that any "graphical" theme based on
plymouth label has the right fonts, e.g. the src:lubuntu-artwork
themes. LP: #1592405

a ping command. (LP: #1705345)

is not available.
