No background for disk encryption password screen?

Hello,

I've setup my laptop to use disk encryption. When I boot, it just comes to a white screen with black text for entering the password. I've see that Garuda is already set up with Plymouth and this allows for a themed password screen. Do others with encryption get a background image for the password or just the white screen? Doing some searches I see this was asked before but no real answer to it. I've went through Plymouth - ArchWiki and the Hooks and Modules seem to be set up correctly. Is there something else I'm missing? Any ideas or assistance would be great.

I think you are missing the concept here, which probably makes it not worth the risk...

Which is also consistent with the outcomes of the manjaro thread referenced here

Thanks. This answered my question, and you are correct, I wouldn't want an unencrypted /boot which would break the simplicity and protection of the snapshots in Garuda. I've marked your response as the solution. Thanks again.
