No Plymouth splash screen with Nvidia drivers [OPEN]

Post by vlad1777d »

When I used built-in Intel videochip all was good.
When i added the Nvidia GT 630 videocard, all was OK (with noveau driver).

When I installed Nvidia driver using this manual: https://wiki.debian.org/ru/NvidiaPropri ... EQwRP_dkms
(with chapter 3), after rebooting the splash screen with Mint logo does not appeared. Instead of it there were tradirional console messages.
(my system: Acer Aspire m3910 (h57 motherboard 8gb RAM, 320 gb sata II Hitachi HDD, intel i3-540, Nvidia GT630)

I tried to fix this so: http://www.binarytides.com/ubuntu-fix-nvidia-graphics/ , but this does not helped.

Question: how to enable the splash screen again (with nvidia driver)?
Thanks for answers.

I added:
# KMS
drm
nouveau modeset=1
and plymouth works correctly, but xorg does not starts (nvidia proprietary driver, on noveau plymous worked correctly for me) (i added noveau, because nvidia was not in list). It is a progress, I can see mint logo :D
