I recently installed
ubuntu-gnome-desktop, but wasn't happy with Gnome & decided to switch back to Unity. I've got a small issue though: something changed with the Ubuntu boot/shutdown screens. Instead of the traditional screen (with the logo, dark bg, and loading "dots"), what I get first is a plain blue screen, no text or anything:
That blue screen stays up for about 20s or so, and then it changes and shows this image for another 10s or so:
(pretty sure this is the default gnome background image actually, vertical stripes with varying shades/fades of blue...)
And after that, it goes black for a second and then Unity Greeter loads, and everything else is fine from there. I've already uninstalled/purged
gnome-shell, and also I've ran
sudo update-initramfs -u && sudo update-grub. Any ideas as to how I can get the default Ubuntu loading/shutdown screens back? Thanks!
Edit: Using Ubuntu 13.04, and I've also tried running
dconf-tools reset -f /org/compiz/, with no change.
