No Bootsplash after upgrading to Nadia

Postby Oimel1987 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:09 pm

Today I've upgraded with apt-get my linux mint 13 to 14. After correcting the DNS Problem, I've noticed that the Boot Splash is not that one that plymouth shows me on preview mode. My active Boot Splash looks like Pixelart or something like that.
So I want to get the splash that plymouth shows me. Could somebody help me to fix that problem ? Is it possible that plymouth isn't loaded at startup ?

thanks for your help

it could be, but after installing plymouth on 13 I've got a nice splash till now. when I let me show a preview of the current splash it shows correctly, but in the boot sequency there is only that pixelart that looks really bad.

Can't find any info on a definitive Yes there should be a splash screen during boot up?
Someone chime in on the issue?
Thanks!

Found this for 13 but don't know if it will work for 14? as don't want to screw up my boot.

Black splash screen

In Linux Mint the boot splash screen is completely black. This is by design. Once the system is installed the boot sequence is relatively fast. The black loading sequence doesn't look out of place and it looks consistent across all computers, whatever driver you're using. If you'd rather get a splash screen you can select one by typing the following command and selecting mint-logo:

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth


Or will removing quiet from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" do the trick?
