Bug Description

Binary package hint: plymouth

When using the ask-question command, I'm not seeing anything output on the screen for the text of the question being asked nor a box for the text i'm currently typing.

The command I used is:
sudo plymouth ask-question --prompt="Do you believe in magic?"

This is because the ubuntu-logo theme implements the display_password callback, but not the display_question callback.

I implemented the display_question callback. Also I increased the distance between the bullets when asked for a password (was a little too close). Just download the file and replace /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu-logo.script

Am I correct that this page needs to updated: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Plymouth to indicate that ask-question works.

This also affects plymouth-theme-xubuntu-logo, ask-question shows nothing when using it.

In case somebody wants to provide a patch for the plymouth-theme-xubuntu-logo theme in the xubuntu-artwork, I'd be happy to test and merge it. I took a look for a few minutes today, but couldn't get it to work.
