I'd like to change the boot splash screen from the current 'Xubuntu' text in white on a black background.Making changes in Settings->Xfce 4 Setting Manager->Session and Startup has had no effect, and Startup Manager does not display an option to change the splash. I feel I'm missing something obvious here, but where should I be looking?
I have a Dell dimension 8300 dual booting with windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10. I installed BURG on it since I didnt like the text grub style. Problem is I cant change the splash screen no matter what I do, or changes I make. My screen resolution is 1280x1024 and my video card is an Nvidia card.
Originally the splash screen was a purple screen with ubuntu 10.10 white text and some dots on it. After installing the plymouth themes, now it has changed to a blue screen with Kubuntu(?) on it... Id like to know whats wrong and how can I change the splash screen?
UPDATE: Ok I went to synaptic and saw plymouth.kubuntu-logo and kubuntu-text were installed and enabled (had litle ubuntu logo to the side). So I removed those 2 files then did a reboot. Now im back to the purple screen with ubuntu 10.10 white text and the dots but I still cant change the splash screen...
I like the artwork used in Xubuntu 9.04 for the splash screen.So,I searched my Xubuntu 9.04 install for it. But, can't find it.Does anyone know where it's located? Picture of splash screen is attached to this post.I've done the following two searches of the file system but no luck:
I would like to modify the splash screen that you see when booting up Xubuntu 10.10. I want something light. What dimesions should I have it at like 800X600 1280X768 and etc. I will be using this on many different resolutions. Also where does the splash reside on this build?
I have poured over many forums and countless posts on how to do this and i cant seem to get it,i have been trying for the past 8 hrs to change the splash screen in my ubuntu 10.04 lts lucid lynx,i have installed startup manager and splash screen and have tried using those to edit my splash screen to no avail i have no idea what im doing wrong
Why is so damm hard to change the splash screen in ubuntu 10.10? Like what's up with that anyways? I've tried like 10 different solutions and not a single one works, I really need this to finish my thin client, it really important that I be able to change the splash screen.
I am trying to change the splash screen (Lucid 10.4) on an encrypted drive (cryptpo LUKS)
I've used to gimp to modify the png files in /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo (both ubuntu_logo.png and ubuntu_logo16.pgn).
These changes show up when the machine is shutting down, but not when it boots (I get the same Ubuntu splash screen that allows me to enter the encryption password). I'm guessing because I'm using an encrypted drive that the plymouth theme and images are stored in an encrypted partition ....maybe /dev/sda1?
Could someone confirm this, or suggest how to change the splash screen for 10.4 if using drive encryption?
It seems to be locked up. i cant change any settings, im familiar with kde 4.3 as ive been a kde user in ubuntu for a year or two. every single button is greyed out. i mostly have default options setup in mandriva, i just started using it.
I been trying to change the splash screen, boot screen thing and now when it boots it just goes right to the log-in screen. I installed "startupmanager" but every .so file I try to add, just won't get added for some reason.
My friend was showing me how to change the splash screen and used a app called start up manager (SUM).He changed the resolutions for GRUB and something else. The GRUB screen resolutions has changed fine but after that I get a line of text which I cant read as its too quick.
So I turned off my computer the other day (I leave my laptop on, pretty much 24/7 I only turn it off if I have to, or I forget to plug it in I turned it off this time just because it was feeling warm)...
And when I went to turn it back on, the splash screen was big and ugly looking, then the orange ("loading") dots loaded to the end... but then it just stopped.
My computer wouldn't boot up... so then I used one of the older versions (you know grub lets you select versions before upgrades or whatever)... and the boot splash was the nice small version... and it loaded just fine, but then after the splash screen went away... the monitor just stayed black... same thing with the version before that.
So then I tried recovery mode on the first one (the latest), and when I clicked "boot normally" it took me to shell. However, everything was working fine, I could load up my non-x dependent programs like IRSSI just fine.
I think it has something to do with me installing the ATI proprietary driver (which was stupid of me, Ubuntu was handling my graphics card perfectly without it... and I hate using closed sourced software).
I don't know what caused it, but as I boot into Ubuntu (9.10), the login screen never appears. Boot splash shows,then the cursor shows up but never the login screen. I haven't found anything that will reset the default gdm or login screen that works.
I just installed ubuntu 10.4 on my new laptop and when it boots up there is no splash screen (All I see is a blinking cursor) and it takes about 28 seconds to boot up... I do have all the graphic stuff working...
I recently installed my first distro, Gnome Ubuntu Linux 10.04 via WUBI dual-booting alongside my Windows. I decided to try the other desktop environments. So I installed Kubuntu-Desktop (KDE) and Xubuntu-Desktop (XFCE) using Synaptic Package Manager.
However, Kubuntu KDE changed the boot splash screen into a from the default Ubuntu one, to the Kubuntu one. Also Xubuntu XFCE changed the log-in screen to the Xubuntu one. I DO NOT want these changes. I just wanted Normal Ubuntu-branded Ubuntu Linux with the option of logging in into the desktop environment of my choice.
I've upgraded my ubuntu to 10.04 LTS for netbooks and I have this bootsplash - shown below - only on Shut Down and Restart.So when I'm booting my netbook and I select from grub the current version of ubuntu I just have a blank screen without any ubuntu logos until the desktop appears. (I have an Asus Eeepc 1005 HA with intel integrated graphics chip)
I tried to fix splash screen resolution on boot up in 10.04 from instructions I found on the net. I updated lines in grub. Now when I boot I see the dual boot menu but hit linux i just get a black screen. I can't get into my system from there.
I switched back to my ubuntu installation few hours ago and I couldn't notice the strange boot screen! I remember that it used to be orange, there was the ubuntu logo and a nice loading bar. All is displayed now is a horrible purple background with just the text "Ubuntu" in the middle and a few dots just below it, showing the loading process.. I don't know how to restore the classic splash screen (I also found the original background in /usr/share/images/xsplash ).
I just recently installed 11.04 fresh onto my computer. Everything's been working great and i've been enjoying the new interface immensely. However, today when i booted my pc up, after i entered my password and logged in, I'm stuck at the splash screen. I can move the mouse and i have the default 11.04 image up on the screen, but ive got no menus or taskbars and i know it hasn't logged in yet, because my wallpaper isnt up. I've restarted a number of times and this keeps happening.
