    That is how it is supposed to be in this release.

    I don't think we're supposed to get text, are we?

    Sometimes I get usplash on boot, sometimes I get corrupted video like usplash tried to run but failed and sometimes I get no usplash at all (like everyone else)... weird... eventually xsplash generally seems to come up though regardless...

    Yes, at this (beta) stage.

    I don't believe that honestly. We're a few weeks away from the release candidate and there are tons of topics like this about people (including me) getting errors and a text boot but no usplash ever, while there are pictures and videos all over the web and people raving about the new boot experience

    I read somewhere that if you append the line
    Code:
    USPLASH=y
    to the file /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf, usplash will appear at boot, and this indeed works for me, although I still get a couple of well-known text lines that appear briefly first.
    You can use
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf
    to edit the file. Just add the extra line at the end, and then run
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u -k `uname -r`
    to generate the startup image.

    Before you do this, make sure you have bugged the text lines you see as requested in the beta release notes, where it says
    We've done some work on improving the overall look and feel of booting the system. Please open bugs with the tag "ubuntu-boot-experience" on any messages you see flashed after grub loads and before the new Ubuntu Splash screen (xsplash) displays. If you have trouble catching them before the splash screen loads, you can also check vt1 or dmesg output for copies of these messages. We also accept photos or video attachments if that's easier, however please make sure the text is readable.
    I think this is why we are seeing the text - some systems generate text, others don't, and the developers need to know so that they can fix it.

    Aearenda, thank you very much!!! your a hero !!! I been searching and searching for days on end for how to get rid of all that text and get the little mouse splashy (xubuntu), to come up before the new cool blue sparkley xubuntu xsplash. And yeah it seems boot time was cut at least by a third. Thanks for the tip, and you are the man!!!
