I have recently installed Xubuntu 11.04 and when it boots up there is no splash image. I have looked all over the internet trying to installed splash images and looking the matter up but had no help what so ever. Iv even chose the splash image via settings manager; Session and Startup; Splash but nothings changed when I reboot. Theres just a black screen with a flashing underscore Thank you to anyone that can help

try with plymouth manager it can fix this kind of issues with propietary drivers – Uri Herrera May 15 '11 at 22:14
Hi i installed plymouth manager and attempted to change the splash image but i recieved error such as- "Warning: No support for locale: en_GB.utf8 " And i'v recieved similar warnings like this whilst trying to change my splash image. When i installed Xubuntu and even Ubuntu before, there wasn't any propietry driver that appeared on the additional driver application – Spenser May 17 '11 at 12:52

Without knowing what the video card is, it is difficult to tell you the problem. I suspect whatever video card is in use does not support the framebuffer required to draw the graphics. Try testing your theme with

sudo plymouthd
sudo plymouth --show-splash

in a terminal, and see if it will even display on your video card.
