No Splash :( [SOLVED - sort of]

Postby DaTorbiera » Sun Aug 12, 2012 7:53 am

Hello all,

Just installed Mint on yet another computer on my quest to drive Windows out of my sphere of influence. Mint 12 LXDE this time, on a Inspiron 640 m.

This boots fairly quickly but still, I would like to have something to look at as the computer is doing whatever needs doing before you can actually insert your username. Unfortunately I can not get the nice splash logo to show. I have installed the start-up manager and have tried all available resolutions. This computer's display resolution is 1280x800.

Any suggestions please ?

Many thanks

Michael

You didn't make clear whether you already followed the step detailed in the release notes for this: http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_maya.php. See the section near the end titled "Black splash screen". Did you take that step?

Will that work with Mint 12?

Never mind. My "customer" is happy with the new setup and the splash isn't missed.

Personally I wouldn't mind seeing it back in future releases though ! After all, it has always been something one could switch off using Startup manager, right ?

Cheers

Michael
