Bug Description

Binary package hint: plymouth

In a KVM machine, with an encrypted partition.

Plymouth shows and locks until the user enters the passphase, but the user is not prompted with information about why it is locked.

I will attach a screenshot.

Is this reproducible when using the ubuntu-logo plymouth theme? (verifiable by installing plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo and running sudo update-alternatives --set default.plymouth /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu-logo.plymouth)

Steve, this does not reproduce using the ubuntu logo.

A bug in the kubuntu plymouth theme, then; reassigning.

The kubuntu theme may be missing the latest ubuntu-logo fixes from plymouth.

This bug was fixed in the package kubuntu-default-settings - 1:10.04ubuntu16

kubuntu-default-settings (1:10.04ubuntu16) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Harald Sitter ]
  * Add plasma-desktop update script 02-kubuntu-menu-icon.js to migrate
    from wrongly named kubuntu-menu to start-here-kubuntu icon (LP: #559725)
    + This requires a configChanged() interface to be implemented in kickoff

  [ Ryan Kavanagh ]
  * Updated the plymouth-theme-kubuntu-logo logo with the new logo (we've got
    a pretty K now). (LP: #557220)

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * Sync up the plymouth theme script with the version in ubuntu-logo, fixing
    a number of text display bugs. The only remaining delta is the background
    color, and the logo name. LP: #557102.

I have tested the new kubuntu daily-build as requested, build 20100410 version 64 bits and the bug still.

This package is not part of the ISO you tested. shows plymouth-theme-kubuntu-logo 1:10.04ubuntu15, the bug was only fixed in ubuntu16 though.

Instead the textual LUKS prompt shows. When shutting down, however,
Plymouth properly shows the splash screen.

The shutdown animation of Plymouth is played properly, though.
