    Plymouth splash has weird (low) colors on startup but normal colors on shutdown

    Hello!

    My Plymouth splash screen has weird colors on startup, but when I shut down, the colors are normal.

    I've searched around but only found fixes for low resolution, which I've set for 1024x768 (instead of my monitor's 1280x1024 in case I ever need to use my computer on a different lower res monitor).

    Pics: (pardon the darkness, don't have an editor installed yet)

    Startup (weird colors): Click -> http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r...7/DSC_4320.jpg

    Shutdown (normal colors): Click -> http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r...7/DSC_4318.jpg

    EDIT: I forgot to add that it happens on other splash screens. The Ubuntu Studio splash has a green box around/behind the "ubuntu studio" text, and the logo is a cyan (255-blue 255-green) color.

    Nope, didn't fix it


    EDIT: In fact, that has increased the time that a black screen appears and reduced plymouth to only a quick "blink" on startup.

    Code:
    echo FRAMEBUFFER=y | sudo tee /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    
    sudo sed -i "/splash/s/splash/splash vga=795/" /etc/default/grub
    sudo update-grub
