    No Plymouth Boot screen after upgrade to 11.04

    Following upgrade, I get no bootscreen on startup, just a black screen. On shutdown, I get the regular Plymouth screen.

    Using NVidia proprietary drivers. Any idea on how I can get Plymouth back to normal?

    I'm also seeing this. There was a workaround for 10.10, but I'm not at all sure that it still works. I also thought that it had been fixed before Natty was released, see:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10665319

    However, I still have an ugly boot sequence!

    I alos did the upgrade, now when I try to boot up it just says

    plymouth main process (53) killed by segv signal.

    and below that it reads

    plymouth-splash main process (175) terminated with status 2.

    what the fudge batman?
    crappy netbook that's barely hanging on, thank you linux for giving my dumb computer license to soar!

    Apart from the above problem.
    My PC is taking 10-15 secs for logging in.
    Are you guys also facing similar problem ?

    The boot screen is black and a little slow to get to login in. When I shutdown I get Plymouth not mounted. It also shows root logged in.

    I was having a black screen, and then a flash of plymouth at the end of the startup.

    Fixed it doing:

    Code:
    sudo -s
    echo FRAMEBUFFER=y >>/etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
    update-initramfs -u

    But may be your problem is different since you don't see plymouth at all.

    Indeed - I have tried this and also all the online solutions for fixing ugly boot. But I have a brief flash of purple and then a black screen, nothing more. Funny that shutdown seems to work OK.

    I'm also experiencing some problems with random freezing of the Launcher and System Tray which is fixed by a restart. Conky works OK though. Weird. I might bite the bullet and go for a complete new install and see if that changes anything.

    I solved the problem in my case using the "StartUp-Manager" application i found in the "Software Center". First i suggest to undo all the stuff done with this

    http://ubuntuguide.net/ubuntu-10-10-...p-and-shutdown

    Then find your current resolution and color-depth (in my case 1024x768 - 24bit). Open "StartUp-Manager" and set in "Boot options" the right resolution and color depth. Select the option "Show boot splash" and deselect "Show text during boot". Under "Arvanced" I have the setting 640x480 for the Bootloader. However this option seems to be not-working in my case. To get a 640x480 boot-loader screen i have to uncomment the line

    GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480

    In the preceeding guide.



    P.S. My Nvidia GeForce Go 7400 was blacklisted for using Unity interface. In solved this problem following this
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/37629...till-run-unity

    P.P.S. Sorry for my bad english-speaking!
