    I wanted to change the boring "e" in Plymouth to the "solar" theme. I ran "apt-get install plymouth-theme*" to get all the themes I could. When I went to change the theme, many populated the terminal, but solar did not, even though it was installed. I decided to not change the default configuration. Nonetheless, when I rebooted, I was met with the edubuntu logo. I deleted every theme except elementary and solar, and then the terminal told me there was "nothing to configure" when I tried to configure Plymouth again. Now, Plymouth doesn't work at all at shutdown, but on bootup still displays the edubuntu logo. What is going on and how can I fix this?

    For anyone who has messed up plymouth, I fixed it by reinstalling and reconfiguring. So
    Code (Text):
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall plymouth*
    sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
    (select desired plymouth theme)
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    sudo reboot now

    Hey not sure if you got Solar working but you can switch between installed themes with the below, Solar should be there if you have it installed.

    Code (Text):
    sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
    sudo update-initramfs -u
