I would like to have an actual Linux boot, in which I would be able to joyfully see what is being loaded, errors, etc. Moreover, I never really managed to make this Plymouth thing work, no matter in how many different PCs I try. Dell laptops, HP laptops, Lenovo desktops, Acer, Asus, etc. I seriously doubt this thing has ever worked outside the developer's PC.
For me it has always been a pink screen with no text, logo, animation, text anything until the DM login shows if you're lucky. In other PCs I see oversized or undersized logos, decentered pink squares with large crop bars on sides, stretched pink rectangles with crops bars on top/bottom, trembling pink distorced logos in static/teared background, etc. Never seen something acceptable.
- Removing Plymouth via apt-get is basically impossible. Apt will tell you that you will need to uninstall everything, even remove the CPU, PSU, RAM, Cables, HDD, the screws, etc. You end up with an empty metal box and pretend you have a working PC, maybe put some led lights on, etc.
- There's no Plymouth config file in /etc or /etc/default as one could expect. Don't know how to disable this thing.
- Removing it from /etc/init.d. The pink thing is still in boot.
- Changing grub2 conf at /etc/default to use no splash, vga=791, whatever, etc won't work. The pink screen will still be there.
Maybe it find its way into my BIOS, or it contaminated my Monitor somehow,
