    Arrow Fix boot GUI resolution

    Everytime I install Ubuntu, my usplash (the boot GUI) is 640x480. So here is howto make the usplash resolution fit your display resolution:

    1. Open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/usplash.conf
    This will ask you for your userpasswd, so you can edit that file with root permissions.
    You will get something like this:
    Code:
    # Usplash configuration file
    # These parameters will only apply after running update-initramfs.
    xres=640
    yres=480
    OR

    Code:
    # Usplash configuration file
    # These parameters will only apply after running update-initramfs.
    2. Adjust xres and yres to your targeted resolution, e.g. for 1280x1024:

    Code:
    # Usplash configuration file
    # These parameters will only apply after running update-initramfs.
    xres=1280
    yres=1024
    Save via <STRG><O>

    3. You now must update your initramfs so the changes take effect:
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    4. Finish. Enjoy your well-sized usplash-boot-screen
