Because of some graphical glitches I rolled back to the standard open source driver by uninstalling NVIDIA from System Settings -> Additional Drivers. The open source driver is fine for my needs, but upon booting, Plymouth is glitchy. It shows a full Ubuntu Sunrise splash animation fine when shutting down, so I assume it can, just not on start up. Can this be fixed? Have I uninstalled & configured correctly?
Would it help to just use onboard graphics?:
- Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
- Pixel Shader 2.0, DirectX 9.0
- Max. shared memory 224MB
I figure graphics card overkill for just desktop effects. I run Cairo Dock under GNOME III. Cairo Dock is bug free with open source drivers, that along with hi-definition splash is good.
