splash screen with plymouth on xubuntu 12.10

there were some troubles configuring the splash screen. here is a possible solution based on the listed links below:

vim /etc/default/grub
>>
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_GFXMODE=1280x1024
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="1280x1024"

grub-update

vim /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
>>
FRAMEBUFFER=y

update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
update-initramfs -u
