Ubuntu – Plymouth not showing after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10


After I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10 today, the Plymouth splash screen is not showing when I startup my computer. The screen goes purple at first, then goes black and I am shown the Login Screen.

It showed up when the computer shuts down, though.

Is there a way to make plymouth show again?

    1. gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

    2. add the following line making sure to put in your native resolution in place of 1680x1050: GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="1680x1050"

    3. sudo update-grub
