There are some plymouth-themes in the Fedora 28 repos. Is there an uncomplicated and easy way to change the appearance of the booting splash screen without any side-effects for future updates and upgrades of Fedora 28? I avoid whenever I can the manual editing of config files of the system, because playing with system config files without detailed system knowledge can break the system.

Please explain

Thank you all for your help. I found an additional solution for Fedora 28 KDE-spin: in the repos there is a kcm-plymouth module where the plymouth-theme setting is very easy:

install the desired plymouth-themes --> go to system-settings --> select the plymouth-module and there you can select the desired plymouth-theme

As described in the Fedora Magazine

List all available themes

plymouth-set-default-theme --list

--> set a theme (i.e. tribar)

sudo plymouth-set-default-theme tribar -R

More themes available in Fedora's repos: dnf search plymouth-theme
