I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 with kernel version 2.6.38-020638-generic. On the shutdown process when the desktop wallpaper is gone, there is always a black console printing some messages and then the ubuntu loading screen (the same one when the ubuntu is starting). What I want is to hide the black console so that the purple ubuntu loading comes right after the desktop wallpaper is gone.

Thanks

Try editing /etc/init/rc.conf:

sudo nano /etc/init/rc.conf

and comment console output so it looks like:

#console output

Don't touch anything else in the file!

Then reboot and it should no longer show anything.

If you want to know what this does do

man 5 init

and read on the console output section.

This doesn't work on 13.04 and 12.04. I still see lots of console messages always. –  Marky Feb 15 '13 at 17:54
