View Full Version : [SOLVED] Plymouth Help

hey guys, i got plymouth splash screen at the correct resolution, but i need to understand better about the FRAMEBUFFER=y comment in

gksu gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash

is that suppose to create a config file, or does it open one?

when i run that, it's an empty file, can someone verify this?

i am following this from here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1469475

it's suppose to resolve the flashing cursor that i still see for 10 seconds before the splash.

Hi inobe,

you have to just put "FRAMEBUFFER=y" in that file, "splash", it is nothing else in there, it doesn't even exist by default.

After that run:

sudo update-initramfs -u

Krytarik thanks, running

sudo update-initramfs -u

again (second time) fixed the cursor issue.
the first time, i thought i was done, it was too fast, it put me back ready for another command within a second.

this time it showed my kernel, it was actually updating this time.

this is solved.
