i,m using lubuntu 22.04 and i want change the splash screen image, how to change it and update it, what is the complete path for plymouth folder? Previously I used 20.04 and edit this path /usr/share/plymouth/themes/lubuntu-logo/ and run this command update-initramfs -u, how about this lubuntu 22.04 version?
There hasn’t been any change (that I’m aware of; though the last change was to allow OEM branding to appear and I forget what release that was, eg. when I boot this box I see the HP logo above Lubuntu’s, if I use a Dell box it’ll be Dell log above… etc).
My current Lubuntu system is a lunar or 23.04 install, and looking in the directory (actually one level up) you mention I see
guiverc@hpprodesk400g1sff:/usr/share/plymouth/themes$ ls -lah

ie. on my own system I have the Lubuntu & Xubuntu options (it’s a Lubuntu install, on which I added the Xubuntu desktop as some days I want my box to look a little different for a change (and I do like Xfce too))
The old guides still work, eg. How do I change the plymouth bootscreen? - Ask Ubuntu and you’ll be offered whatever options are suitable for your current system (ie. its possible that some really old plymouth screens that worked on 14.04/trusty or earlier can exist in your directory, but be ignored as incompatible on your modern system)
which lines that i edit if want change the image? already change image in spinner directory but its not working ( shown 22.04 lts text with blue screen ) or can i replace the plymouth file with the previously file ( 20.04 )? if can how to change/replace the file?
