Fix Plymouth configuration on Ubuntu 11.04, after upgrade from 10.10

If you don’t get the splash screen you usually have on Ubuntu after an upgrade to 11.04 Natty, then you need to follow the steps below, that should work for most cases and should not harm:

  1. Launch your Terminal: sudo apt-get install watershed startupmanager
  2. Launch the Startup Manager from your favorite Menu (System/Administration/Startup-Manager)
  3. Configure the resolution wanted and other parameters, it is very straightforward. I would tick the “Show startup splash” and “Show text” if I were you πŸ™‚
  4. Click on Close, this will apply the changes.
  5. Just in case, run: sudo update-initramfs -u
    This will update (put new drivers, configuration files, etc) your InitRamFS image, used on boot. This is where all the magic happens on boot, for everything that happens before your system is fully booted.

That should do it!

If not, then try your luck again on Google/Bing πŸ˜‰

  1. Hello! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.

    Does running a well-established website such as yours take a massive
    amount work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal
    experience and views online. Please let me know if you
    have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    There are also quite a few great health benefits associated with
    HCG diet program as well. For the first two days, you can eat
    as much as you want of anything you want.
    Keep your HCG drops out of the sun and away from sources of heat,
    and they’ll keep for a lot longer.

  3. Piece of writing writing is also a excitement, if you be familiar with after that yoou can write if not it
    is difficult to write.
