I am using Linux Mint Maya Cinnamon and having had a black boot screen for some time I found out how to correct this with
sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
sudo update-initramfs -u
Now though, the resolution is out ouf sorts and needs to be adjusted to a 1400 x 900 screen. I am using Nvida graphics with 295.40 drivers.
I would also mention whilst in here that there is no plymouth splash when I shutdown either, although this is not so important to me.
Having got the Plymouth splash successfully on my screen at startup I don't want to lose it if I can avoid it by trying to correct the resolution.
Is there a foolproof way of doing this please and if so,what is it?
