Please bare with me as I am very new to Ubuntu and am just beginning to learn. So I have seen several solutions to the splash screen issue however I am having problems executing the repair. Once I enter
Sudo gedit /ect/default/grub
I get this.
** (gedit:11201): WARNING **: Could not load Gedit repository: Typelib file for namespace 'GtkSource', version '3.0' not found (gedit:11201): IBUS-WARNING **: The owner of /home/bob/.config/ibus/bus is not root! (gedit:11201): Gtk-WARNING **: Calling Inhibit failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service
The gedit grub box will open but the screen is blank. There is no file to modify or view.
I should also note that I have tried installing v86d hwinfo however I get this response
Package hwinfo is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
I have successfully installed v86d (without the hwinfo)
