    no plymouth theme after lucid upgrade

    Upgrade to lucid (by running update-manager -d) succeeded with no major error. But when I reboot the computer, the boot splash screen is "Ubuntu Studio" and the login screen's background is a "Ubuntu-eee" png picture. A funny mess.

    I was able to get to the new boot splash screen by remove --purge ubuntu-studio, which I must have installed sometimes in the past, but I don't see anyway of getting the new theme for the login screen.

    I have this eeepc for about 2 years and never have to fresh-install Ubuntu except the first time. I much rather not have to fresh-install just to solve some aesthetic problems. I am pretty sure it's due to some package I installed in the past, but I don't see any Ubuntu-eee related package in Synaptic either.

    Anyone?

    If you already have Plymouth installed, this trick, from elsewhere in this forum, worked for me:

    In the terminal:

    Code:
    sudo pico /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
    then insert the text:

    Code:
    FRAMEBUFFER=y
    exit, saving changes, then back to the terminal:

    Code:
    sudo update initramfs -u
    Then reboot.

    Actually I reinstalled/re-removed ubuntu-studio and it worked!

    As for the login screen, all I have to do is run change background as gdm using
    Code:
    gksu -u gdm dbus-launch gnome-control-center
    I have one more issues. The same Ubuntu-eee background shows up at the password prompt for locked screen. I have no idea which user is responsible for that.

    Does nothing for me, even with the correct command

    sudo update-initramfs -u
