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'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'm running a dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04. I have them both partitioned on a 1TB drive and I also have 2 250gb internal hd's hooked up. So starting maybe yesterday, I was noticing that Win7 started crashing for absolutely no reason whatsoever where it freezes and the mouse and keyboard are unresponsive. Today I did a system restore because I was tinkering in the registry so I thought that could have been the issue. Crashed once since. But runs longer. I also checked the event log and doesn't divulge anything explaining the system crash.
And just now, I tried booting up Ubuntu and after grub, the purple splash screen flickers back and forth to the text based terminal startup. All I could make out once was "could not read partition table." that was really the only significant thing I could make out. It flickers too quickly for me to really catch what its saying.
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'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 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.
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 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'm not referring to "Gnome Login Sound" I'm referring to the login screen sound. Those 2 drum pats you hear when you start up Ubuntu, before logging in. I was using Macbuntu, and have switched back, however it never changed my login sound back to what it was suppose to be. I knew how to change everything else back, so i didn't just run a script with out knowing how to clean up after it, however this is the only thing I don't know how to do. It keeps looking into the macbuntu folder to get the sounds before i log in. Probably being able to simply set the sound theme in the login screen would fix this issue. I've tried using Ubuntu Tweak, but no such luck. If no one can't find a solution I'll just have to use the other folder from now on >.< However I'm quite certain there's a script somewhere, that I can edit. I just need to know where it's at.
I have a question regarding to the Graphical Splash Screen. Is their a way to show the text based startup on booting your OS? So. I don't the OpenSuse Background with the loading line. But i want the half transparent black background if possible or just the black background with all the loading texts. The black and white screen.
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.
This is some thing that I've noticed with any install of Ubuntu whether its regular Ubuntu or Kubuntu etc. The splash that comes up with the distro name Ubuntu/Kubuntu on start up look perfectly fine and as it should until I've installed my Nvidia drivers. then it goes all bung.
Lower Resolution. Slightly different colouring and Not taking up the whole screen. Sometimes it even sits slightly to the right.
Is there a way that I can fix this? I know its nothing all that major but it would be nice if it looked as its meant to.
I recently installed kubuntu-kde and it changed the boot splash theme from an orange logo on a purple background to tourqoise on blue. How do I change it back?
In KDE, I can navigate to Settings > System Settings > Appearance > Splash Screen but that's not what i'm looking for. I'm not trying to change KDE's Splash Screen that shows when you load the KDE window manager after logging in as a user. Further, I'm not trying to change grub's boot splash image, which renders this guide useless.
I want to change the boot splash theme which lasts 25 seconds that is shown between the time your select the kernel in grub2 and the time gdm loads. Right now it says "Kubuntu" in an ugly way and I want to change it back to what it was originally before I installed KDE. I want it to say "Ubuntu" as it should by default.
I received the Ubuntu CD by mail the other day and tried to install a dual boot with it. I first tried it out by running from the CD and the first problem I had was the screen froze after the splash screen. So I lurked around for a bit and found out that I can press any key on the screen with the keyboard and person to get to a different screen. At this screen I entered "F6" and then entered "nomodeset", this allowed me to pass the splash screen.
Next, I got into Unbuntu but I found out that the keyboard and mouse weren't working, so I lurked again and found out that I have to enter "noacpi" (sorry if I got that wrong, I forgot the name ). I ran by CD once more and everything worked, so I decided to finally install it next to my Vista. However, after installing it goes straight to the splash screen, and the freezing happens again. The screen where the keyboard and the person are not showing up so I have no idea how add the "nomodeset" and "noacpi". So my question is, how do I get to the screen where I can add both those things? Also, is there a way to add it permanently so I don't have to keep pressing F6?
Out of nowhere Ubuntu (intrepid, I believe) has stopped loading for me. When it attempts to load gdm the screen starts flashing at the splash screen and then eventually dumps me to the terminal. From there I can login without any problems but can not get the GUI to load.
When I run sudo gdm-binary it does the flashing splash screen again and then spits out the error message: WARNING: Unable to find users: no seat-id found. Then a few warnings about longest graphic displayed 2.5xxx seconds I tried running sudo dpkg-recondifigure gdm and relaunch gdm as above and it did the same thing.
I was not able to successfully connect to my wireless network through the terminal to try to update in the hopes of that fixing the problem. Perhaps someone can give me instructions on how? (I have tried but can not figure out how to initialize wlan0).
Or, is there something I can do from my installation CD?
