    Angry Black loading screen

    Hi to everybody!
    This is the first time that I use Xubuntu and I'm experiencing a problem with it. D:
    I've just installed Xubuntu 12.10 desktop 64-bit on my laptop alongside with Windows 8.
    When I choose Ubuntu from grub loader, the screen goes black and the LCD backlight goes off: the white-bar-on-blue-background Xubuntu loading screen doesn't appear, but after a few seconds the Xfce login window materializes and the desktop enviroment after login works fine. When I shutdown or restart the system, the white-bar-on-blue-background Xubuntu loading screen magically appears!
    I know that is only an aesthetic bug, but how can I bring back the Xubuntu loading screen on boot?
    Please notice that my video card is the Nvidia NVS 2100M, and that I'm NOT experiencing any problem with Xfce's desktop.
    A huge kiss to anyone who will help me! :*

    Re: Black loading screen

    are there any additional drivers available for your graphics card? Meaning when you get to the desktop and go to system settings and then Additional drivers, is there one available for your Nvidia card?

    attached is a screenshot of my system settings...under hardware you can see Additional Drivers

    I was using the open source nouveau driver, now that I changed to Nvidia proprietary driver (from nvidia-current) the loading screen is the awful black and white version, but it shows up when booting and when shutting down... Now for the blue nice version what I have to do?

    I have the same problem in both ubuntu 12.04 and kubuntu 12.04 with latest update installed. The splash screen looks weird but when I shut down my computer it looks very nice. I am using open source driver.

    Output for grep '^[^#]' /etc/default/grub :
    Code:
    GRUB_DEFAULT="Kubuntu 12.04"
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET="true"
    GRUB_TIMEOUT="10"
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
    GRUB_GFXMODE="1024x768x24"
    GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT="false"

    Re: Black loading screen

    Try to add the line
    Code:
    GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="1024x768"
    to /etc/default/grub, then
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
