General :: Get Two Plymouth Splash Screens?

Aug 25, 2010

Trying to tweak my boot-up time. I changed the FRAMEBUFFER (/etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash) from "n" to "y". But it actually increased my boot time- as I now get two plymouth splash screens (one, followed by a brief black screen, then another Plymouth splash)

Changing the FRAMEBUFFER back to "n" results in NO splash screen.

How do I get back to just having one splash screen (as opposed to two or none)????

General :: E4Rat Vs Plymouth Splash Screen

Apr 11, 2011

I'm currently running Linux Mint 10. Since I have an nVidia graphics card, I installed the driver and used this fix to fix the Plymouth bootsplash afterward because it was in text-mode for the bootsplash. I have since installed and configured e4rat to cache files at boot. It seems to have sped up things considerably, but has also re-broken my bootsplash. The resolution is correct, and plymouth is running, but the splash doesn't show.

Is there a way to get Plymouth using the uvesafb driver AND play along with e4rat?

I am using 64-bit Linux Mint. My copy of e4rat is compiled from source because the prebuilt package was 32-bit only My graphics card is nVidia 9800M GS (notebook) The splash screen appears during shutdown as it did before. It's only the boot splash that is affected.

Ubuntu :: No Plymouth Splash Screen On 10.04?

Jul 1, 2010

I just installed Kubuntu 10.04 on my Desktop computer. Prior to KDM loading, all I get is a blank, black screen with no Plymouth splash screen. I'm confident that this issue is not related to KDE but would apply to all Ubuntu variants. Here are my computer specs:

Kubuntu 10.04 x64 running with all updates
Dell Studio Desktop
Intel Quad-Core Processor 2.66Ghz
8GB ram
Intel Integrated Graphics

I should note that I have full desktop effects running smoothly under KDE with compositing enabled, so my integrated graphics is not necessarily the problem unless Plymouth is not loading the graphics drivers successfully.

Ubuntu :: Killed Plymouth Startup Splash?

May 22, 2011

Fooling around with trying to edit splash themes, and in trying to apply one, I broke the startup splash. The shutdown splash still works. I know that update-initramfs -u is supposed to fix this, but it hasn't. I run dpkg-reconfigure plymouth, and it gives me the list of themes; I can pick one, and it seems to do its thing; I run update-initramfs -u, and that looks like it worked too; but then I reboot, and the shutdown splash is unchanged, and the startup splash is just a black screen until GDM loads. It's as if I hadn't changed anything.

Ubuntu :: How To Add And Select Boot-splash Screens

May 11, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: How Do I Restore To Default Plymouth / Splash Settings

May 5, 2010

After installing the proprietary nVidia drivers for my 8800 GT, the purple UBUNTU boot screen got gigantic and ugly.I installed startupmanager and changed the settings from 640x480 to 1024x768.The result was a garbage (scrabbled) boot up splash (UBUNTU)That didn't work out so I set everything back to 640x480 but that made it go to no splash on boot (black screen until GDM), and a garbage UBUNTU splash on shut down.How can I just put it back to the ugly / gigantic boot screen that was there before I screwed it all up?

Ubuntu :: Splash Animation - Plymouth - Doesn't Work At All

Aug 2, 2010

I have installed Lucid two weeks ago and I have a lot of problems to configure my video card Nvidia Geforce gtx260. Thanks to the help of ubuntu forums members I have correctly installed it and now I can use Compiz fusion and other amusements.

A particular problem is that as i choose Ubuntu from Grub menu the splash animation I've seen using the installation dvd ramdrive now doesn't start and i am directly addressed to the desktop username/password.

In your view could it depend on my video card? If yes what can i do to make the spash working (plymouth or others)?

Ubuntu :: Boot Splash In 10.10 \ Adding A New Theme In Plymouth And Switched To That Instead, But It Still Doesn't Come Up?

Oct 3, 2010

I recently upgraded to 64-bit maverick (from 64-bit lucid) and I'm getting this ugly boot splash now - it's a purple screen with a very basic "ubuntu 10.10" written in terminal font and four dots underneath. I am running a dell xps m1530 with nvidia graphics card, and haven't had any trouble with the boot splash before. I have run the additional hardware drivers utility and it says I have the latest Nvidia driver already loaded apparently.I have looked around the forums and tried a few suggested solutions, like updating the initramfs with the framebuffer=y line but that didn't do anything. I also tried adding a new theme in plymouth and switched to that instead, but it still doesn't come up.

Ubuntu :: Reset All Personalization Such As Splash Screen And Colors In Grub Splash To Default?

Apr 25, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen Messed Up - Get Random Command Lines Mixed In With The Usual Splash

Jan 26, 2011

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, 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.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen Startup - Goes Blank For A Minute Then Briefly Shows The Splash For 5-10 Seconds

Mar 26, 2011

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?

General :: Get Dual Screens Working On A Dell E6410 Laptop With U10.04 64 Bit?

Jul 12, 2010

I've installed the drivers from nVidia. When I go into the NVIDIA X Server Settings application, in the X Server Display Configuration setcion, and click the "Configure" button, "TwinView" is disabled. Also, clicking "Detect Displays" doesn't pick up my monitor (which is connected through a port replicator - keyboard and mouse in that port replicator work fine).

Has anyone else seen this? Is this just a limitation of the current nvidia linux drivers?

General :: Extended Desktop Virtual Screens And A Usb2vga Adaptor

Jan 16, 2011

OS Linux Mint 10, Intel graphics, SIS usb2vga adaptor.

I have three screens. The netbook screen with the extended desktop onto a vga screen and a third screen connected to a usb2vga adaptor.

The extended desktop screens without the usb2vga adaptor works perfectly. I can maximise applications to either screen perfectly without them spreading across both screens. As soon as I connect the third screen via the usb2vga adaptor maximising an application causes it to spread across both screens yet the third usb2vga screen has it's own virtual desktop environment.

I have tried numerous versions of my xorg.conf file that I have generated to incorporate the usb2vga adaptor to make this work and regardless of what xrandr commands I send including changes to the gconf settings nothing seems to solve the issue.

It seems odd that I can create a panel and position it left, right, top or bottom of the second monitor of the extended desktop and it sticks to the screen dimensions yet I can't get any application to do the same when there is a third screen connected through the usb2vga adaptor.

I don't use Compiz, it crashes my system and I don't want separate workspaces I want the extended desktop with the two separate virtual screens to fit on the two separate screens that form part of the extended desktop.

With Xinerama deprecated what other options do I have.

General :: Blinking Cursor (used To Be Distorted) On Multiple Screens - ATI Driver?

Today my cursor became distorted. It worked fine on the second screen, connected to my notebook and screenshots displayed it well. So I did a little googling, and found out, that it is a known bug. I followed different tutorials. And now my cursor is blinking and disappearing. And it drives me crazy. It was a lot better when it was distorted. My xorg.conf:

General :: Slackware 13.1 Won't Boot With Ubuntu Studio - Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found

Jan 1, 2011

I have this old box that I used at school that I wanted to re-purpose and use. So i decided to that I wanted to run xp, ubuntu studio and slackware so I can learn about linux and do some other things with xp. I think I got through the installatiosa all fine and dandy, and I installed grub for my boot loader, I can boot into studio and xp, but I cant get into slackware. the grub boot menu is sorta funky too, it shows a generic and recovery mode for studio which is fine, and then another option for xp, some memory test boot option, but then for slackware it shows "Slackware Linux (Slackware 13.1.0) (on /dev/sda4) four times in a row. If I select any of them they all end up with some error; the third SW [slackware] option down the list of the repeated 4 allows me to sign into root, but when I type "startx" i get :

(EE) intel(0): No kernel modesetting driver detected
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

Fatal server error: no screens found

but thats with a lot of other text above that. if you need any more details, please dont hesitate to request for them. I'm going to take some time and cool down. I'm trying to get these three OSes running from one HD. I've partitioned the 80 gig drive as follows

Primary 40 G NTSF for XP
Primary 2G Linux Swap
Primary 16G Slackware
