I'm thinking about customizing a theme for Ubuntu 12.10. The problem is that I've looked through the /usr/share directory and I haven't been able to find the Plymouth folder. What can I do to get the folder?

Stephen, it's no longer a problem now. I could have sworn I put "solved" in the title. –  Rusakov Dekkamaster Nov 7 '12 at 1:38
    
We don't put solved in the title of posts; an answer is marked as the solution with a green tick (as below), so I've edited your question again. –  user76204 Nov 7 '12 at 1:41

You can create the folder with the following command:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/plymouth/themes

On the second thought, /lib/plymouth/themes/ may be what you need.

Make a backup of it before customizing with

sudo cp -r /lib/plymouth/themes /lib/plymouth/themes-backup
