When I boot Ubuntu or Fedora, they show a black screen with a bunch of
[OK] messages for startup processes.
It seems like an old style DOS system. Nowadays, iOS and Windows don't show those terminal-like results. Elementary OS doesn't show it (most of the time) either.
Can I hide them in Ubuntu?
The answer to this question doesn't work in my case because my
/etc/default/grub already has
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" but it still shows the boot text.
apt-cache policy plymouth | grep Installed:
GRUB_DEFAULT=0 #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=10 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=force" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
Update 7 Mar 18:
sudo apt-get clean, apt-get autoremove, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade
The result is the same: First Ubuntu boots with the logo and 5 loading dots Then, the screen show these: (a lot of them)
... [ OK ] Started CUPS Scheduler. <more yidi yada> [ OK ] Started Run anacron jobs. [ OK ] Started ACPI event daemon. [ OK ] Started Set the CPU Frequency Scaling governor. Starting Hold until boot process finishes up... any system changes.pp link was shut down.
Then Ubuntu shows login screen with username.
