    ssudo cp -R INT2MIL-Ubuntu-10.4-Eng/ /lib/plymouth should read sudo cp -R INT2MIL-Ubuntu-[b]10.04[/b]-Eng/ /lib/plymouth/themes//themes/

    have you tried this on Ubuntu Lucid Server. I am not able to get any plymouth on Ubuntu server. I have also installed plymouth-themes-ubuntu-logo package to get all the needed files but even after that no success. Kindly guide if possible.
