There is an error, the more seedy than annoying, at least affected Ubuntu and family for a few versions, which, once installed proprietary drivers for your graphics card (ATI or NVIDIA), the boot animation disappears . You asked for a solution to this issue, so I’ll give you the recipe that I served to me.
The first is
check what resolutions your monitor supports , so install a few packages for this purpose:
Now it see if you’re lucky:
Do you find the optimum resolution of your monitor from the list? No? Bad luck … If yes, pass to edit the GRUB configuration . You open the terminal, and:
If you are in Kubuntu, the first command should be replaced by kdesudo , and in all cases, the three ‘x’ for your default text editor (gedit on Ubuntu, kate in Kubuntu leafpad in Xubuntu or Lubuntu … all directly or nano).
looking GRUB_GFXMODE line # = 640 × 480 and below it you copy the following, changing the resolution you play: GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX = 1024 × 768.
You observe the commandments file and console the three steps below :
When you finish
and only have to reboot , whose boot should have regained the corresponding animation.
sources because I took the solution of the Ubuntu forums, but I can not remember the exact page (the information I saved it just in case). Anyway, there must be a thousand and one similar publications over the Internet, so if you do not work what I just told you, you have to keep looking.
One of our readers in the comments explaining the failure is due to lack of support from NVIDIA and ATI framebuffer kernel mode, where Plymouth works, so that affects any distribution that uses the system boot . However, testing with openSUSE 12.2, which opens with GRUB2 and Plymouth, I have not had that error. Unsolved Mysteries …
