I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 with Wubi, When I first installed Ubuntu I could see the splash screen with the blinking dots, But after a couple of days it vanished (I've Nvidia drivers installed).

I searched around and found this Enabling Nvidia driver messes up splash screen

will it be safe to edit Grub as stated there(in Wubi installation)?, And will it work for 12.04?

the file "splash" that opens from executing gksu gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash is empty, is that normal? –  ths May 23 '12 at 15:44
    
When I followed the instructions my file was also empty - so yes I think this is normal. –  Peter May 24 '12 at 10:24
