|Summary||0005542: Improve how plymouth theme is handled|
|Description||Currently the plymouth and desktop-base package do not provide a good way for derivatives/admins to override the default theme (it's hardcoded in /usr/share/plymouth/plymouthd.defaults). Due to that we have added a call to "plymouth-set-default-theme" in desktop-base but this overwrites /etc/plymouth/plymouthd.conf (which is a dpkg-handled conffile) and can lead to spurious prompts during package installation.|
This issue is discussed in https://bugs.debian.org/850280 on the Debian side but it will require some upstream fix first. The Debian maintainer opened https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/plymouth/plymouth/issues/78 but upstream seems unlikely to fix it by himself. So we should likely step in to get what we want.
