    Re: Switching From Ubuntu To Lubuntu & Others

    Thank you Bucky Ball.

    Since I installed Lubuntu on top of Ubuntu, it replaced my Ubuntu loading screen (the screen with the dots before you get to the login screen) and I'd like to get it back. How do I do that? I don't know what that screen is called so I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me the official name.

    When you say 'replaced' - do you mean the dots are now a different colour, or that they no longer exist?

    The boot animation backend is called plymouth - the Ubuntu theme is plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo I believe. I believe the command to choose the default theme would be:

    Code:
    sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

    Right, MG&TL. The Lubuntu loading screen (blue) shows up now instead of my original Ubuntu loading screen (purple). The loading screen itself says "Lubuntu" instead of "Ubuntu" and the dots are still shown but the colors are changed also.

    In which case you want to run the command I gave above.
