My install was interrupted because of a power cut. I recovered from it, using the command

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Now, I get a violet bootscreen like normal, but the progress bar is shown as 4 dots, and Ubuntu is displayed in a simple font, reminiscent of the DOS era. What do I do to make it right? I have nvidia drivers. Also, worth mentioning is that before showing the bootscree, i get a line of text saying:

............ unreliable temperature sensor.............

I use a Asus M3N78-EM AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition 4GB DDR2, Nvidia 9400GT 512 MB.

Install cryptsetup package (side effect of this action is logo normalization)

Sure, Open Help's answer is very usefull I said this because "an inrerupted installation process" always scares me. I don't have deep technical knowledge on the subject, its just a feeling. I hope there aren't more broken things. – marenostrum Oct 23 '10 at 12:32

Yes, that's the boot-screen.

Sidenote: No, I'm not gonna argue about the design...what you see is the right and perfect working boot screen.

Umm no, thats not the perfect bootscreen, because its not like the one that was in 10.4. If you say that this (…) is the correct boot screen, then its not what I see. – theTuxRacer Oct 22 '10 at 1:46
What I see is this:… – theTuxRacer Oct 22 '10 at 1:54
