I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and recently i installed Gnome and Xfce Desktop Environment. Now I have the problem that every time I start up or shutdown Ubuntu I see numbers something about Xfce, but i do not see the loading image below:

Ubuntu loading image

My startup/shutdown screens are changed to Xubuntu style (I guess), and grub even says debian. I managed to solve the Grub problem by running this from the command line:

sudo apt-get remove desktop-base

But how can I bring back the original Ubuntu 12.04 startup and shutdown theme ?


  • I tried this here and set it to lightdm but it did not resolve my problem.
  • I removed Xubuntu (Xfce) like here described. But i still don't see the default Ubuntu startup and shutdown screen. Any more suggestions ?
  • I also tried this here, now it is better but it is still not the original loading image. Also the resolution is bad. The letters are too big.

I have a similar issue. For me my themes and icons in Ubuntu session are completely messed up. I expected only my xubuntu session to be different. –  W. Goeman Aug 19 at 14:36

@W.Goeman thanks for the comment. But I moved on to Ubuntu 14.04. As it seems the above problems are very common in Ubuntu and most of the times the Graphic card is responsible. –  Devid Aug 19 at 15:00
