I updated from 9.10 karmic to 10.04 LTS. Everything worked fine until, I restarted. Upon logout there are no splash screen like I had before in the 9.10, and my fan on my gfx are going crazy, spining at 100%. Well then I got to the grub loader, and discovered my boot splash was gone to. The only thing which is displayed on the screen are: mount dev /dev failed device71 Starting up. Then 10 seconds later alot of texts shows up and I get the login screen. I've looked around on the forum and other sites for a solution, but with no luck.
If I re-install Grub 2 from the live CD should that reset all the personalisations such as as splash screen and colours in the Grub splash to default? In my case they are not resetting. I would expect them to revert to the default black/white you get when initially installing the OS. the Grub timeout to be a lot less than its supposed to be? e.g. the default timeout setting of 5 seconds is more like 2 or 3 in reality, and when I set my prefered value to 2 seconds it results in being about 1/4 sec or so.
Since updating my graphics driver on ubuntu 10.10, My splash screen has been inconsistant and messed up. Sometimes ill get random command lines mixed in with the usual splash, sometimes the splash wont show and it will just be black till the desktop appears, sometimes it flashes on and off. I originally tried fixing the resolution and just made the problem worse. Then I tried installing a new splash via gnome-look.org, but it just made my shut-down splash blank and didnt effect my splash at startup. I just want the original splash that ubuntu is supposed to have.
I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu, and on the start-up after I pass the GRUB it goes blank for a minute then briefly shows the splash for 5-10 secs and then jumps to the login screen. Also the screen is offset by about 10-15 pixels but from the login screen onwards it is centred. (It's also like this for if I'm in recovery mode) How do I fix this and Im wondering if it is a hardware problem?
I recently installed Ubuntu Studio and after an update the standard Plymouth splash screen began to show. I tried changing it back via the "sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth" method but I am getting a blue kbuntu splash screen instead of the ubuntu studio splash.
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.
I have just installed ubuntu on top of my windows 7 installation, on its own partition. From the beginning i could not install from the cd since it just froze every time i pressed install from the installation window. I got the commandline for the command to show itself, and noticed a command called quiet splash in the end. Wanting to see if it was hiding any errormessages i deleted it and ran the installer again. Now the installer did not crash and instead installed with no complications.In grub, when i try to boot windows 7 there is no problem. When i try to boot ubuntu it crashes. Ive left my computer for 30 minutes and still nothing has happened.However when i press e to see the boot command, delete quiet splash and press ctrl-x for boot, ubuntu starts with no problems.
Since I know there's a lot of support threads going, I wouldn't ask unless I was really stumped and couldn't google. I'll get right to it.
10.04 fresh installed fine, working, few reboots, all good. Installed Nvidia 195 drivers. Not so good, still works fine, but framerates not as good as the 190 drivers I'd been using with karmic. So I installed nvidia-glx-190 and nvidia-190-modaliases with the nvidia PPA for jaunty. They didn't appear on the restricted drivers list, I rebooted in the hope they would, and now my boot process is as follows.
Boot, met with a blinking _ Goes blank Another blinking _
Green static appears momentarily, then very fast the Ubuntu splash appears, the white orbs all turn orange, and there it hangs. The splash itself is in the wrong resolution.
Everything is the same as when it was working except it didn't totally freeze at the end. It responds to nothing except the power button (and sometimes not), I can't access a shell or the grub menu at any stage during the boot process like I usually would, and nothing in the boot log seems out of the ordinary.
What should I do? I'm on a LiveCD desktop, got the harddrive mounted.

I've recently made clean install to Lucid, and now Boot splash doesn't appear at start up. Only black screen appears and after that login window comes. However, boot-splash appears at shut-down and also in LiveCD.
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'm using Ubuntu 10.10. How can I switch between text-based splash and GUI splash? My computer is currently showing a purple text based splash screen when booting Ubuntu. How can I switch it to GUI mode?
I have never had a boot-splash screen on my dual-boot configuration; and I recently added something in Synaptic, probably by mistake, that added a Debian splash screen to my boot menu. I think it's much more attractive than the bare menu; however it's not appropriate for an Ubuntu distro. Also, I'd like to know how to add and select boot-splash screens, that will show behind my boot menu, like the Debian screen does.
The boot splash only appears for 2 seconds, and it doesn't even have the ubuntu logo / loading bullets. After 8 or so seconds later, the boot splash (with ubuntu logo / loading bullets) will either reappear for disk checking or error reporting or it displays the login screen.

Changing GRUB image I am using ubuntu 8.04 I read [URL] got gnu-head.xpm.gz (it has 12 colors & 640x480 resolution) Added following line at beginning of menu.lst splashimage=(hd0,5)/boot/grub/gnu-head.xpm.gz Remember no space after (hd0,5). I did that mistake once and got error Failed to read ((hd0,5)⏏/boot/grub/gnu-head.xpm.gz) Press any key to continue Coming back to point . Now run # update-grub
Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub Searching for default file ... found: /boot/grub/default Testing for an existing GRUB menu.lst file ... found: /boot/grub/menu.lst
Isn't this interesting. If you want to change the image during bootup then see [URL]
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 have been trying to get a boot image to display on a minimal install of Ubuntu. I have followed the steps in the grub2 wiki but I can't get it to work. attached are the steps I have taken with no change in boot. (No Image)
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'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?
So I turn on my pc today, select ubuntu studio from GRUB and it freezes during the splash sequence - I hard shut down and the power back on and. nothing. Hard drive light illuminates once then stays off. External HDD powers on. Processor light comes on but no graphics - no manufacturer stuff, no bios entry - nothing.
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 ).
