There is also something else going on at the moment:
https://github.com/manjaro/manjaro-tools/issues/208#issuecomment-216500091
But for me also xfce-minimal, which uses Plymouth does not work.
So, that your build with plymouth does work makes me think that your's is a different problem maybe... maybe not? ;)

i3 is also always without plymouth and I do like Chrysostomus. Normally there's no issue with that for me.
manjaro is addictive ::)

I dit a git pull or  the profiles, but not changed manjaro-tools self. I always use an old 0.11.

I will search if i have an old profile on my external disk.  ;)

Same problem with the 16.03 profile.  :( I think now to changes in the files called by manjaro-tools.

Usually when I get into this kind of situation, I pick one of the working profiles and rebuild my own profile around it. That usually helps if I cannot find the actually cause of the problem.

is it systemd related?


I bet openrc works. If so, it is a service file. Maybe missconfigured?

What I did just above, but same problem. So, i can't study the differences.

Maybe you should study /var/lib/manjaro-tools/iso/... to see if the service file for plymouth exists in the image despite your settings. If so, you can manually delete it and rebuild the iso.

Plymouth needs to work
1) kernel parameter 'splash'
2) plymouth hook in mkinitcpio.conf
3) service file that integrates plymouth to displaymanager.
4) plymouth package installed

You most likely have one of these in your image. Having plymouth installed should not cause harm by itself, but without it there should be no service files for it. So I'm guessing you have 4 and one of the other three.

Tried (i removed the line "After"), but always black screen if I start sddm.

1) quiet net.iframes=0, so no
2) i did a search on /etc/mkinitcpio.conf, none
3) displaymanager -> sddm.service
4) no

but, as you can read on my capture, a lot of services depends on plymouth.

I recall that it is the stupid sddm systemd unit file, that has a plymouth depend in it.
Other DMs deliver a separate plymouth service to start DM.

Cloned packages-extra and reinstalled manjaro-tools-git (0.11.5) -> same.

sddm is the recommended display manager for lxqt.

Yes, its basically a package issue, or deployment issue of the unit file in sddm package.
Perhaps file a feature request upstream to include two separate unit files.
