I would like to change this default ubuntu logo

enter image description here

But I can't find it. I tried to change


But that is the image on the login screen. Can you tell me how to change it or where is this file located?

update: I changed that image and it actually works.

  • The image is known as watermark.png in /usr/share/plymouth/themes/spinner – Kulfy May 25 at 11:01
  • Found it. Thank you very much- – Tarrant May 25 at 11:05

A basic search results that the ImageDir is /usr/share/plymouth/themes/spinner

[Plymouth Theme]
Description=Jimmac's spinner theme using the ACPI BGRT graphics as background

Font=Ubuntu 12
TitleFont=Ubuntu Light 30

enter image description here

It is not good idea to replace lot of Images of this spinner..

Instead find out a simple Plymouth theme which uses single Image and replace it..

If you want to change Ubuntu logo..

this is the Image file

  • Sorry, I changed that image and it actually works, but using Cubic to create a new ISO the image of the ubuntu logo continues to appear before the installation phase, while actually after the installation it vanishes for the "new" image. Could you please help me? – Tarrant May 25 at 12:06
