I know this has been asked but on slightly different terms. I would like to remove it so that I can see the code behind. Not one off but every time it is shutdown and started.
Thaknk you in advance.

  • I recommend just editing your /etc/default/grub.

    Change

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"  
    

    to

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
    

    Remember to update grub afterward with sudo update-grub at the command line.

    Comment: Originally, I put GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text". Note this will end your boot process at the command line. After (possibly) having to login with username and password, startx at the prompt will start up your usual GUI.
