So I "converted" Bionic Server UEFI to Mate Desktop UEFI.

One thing that bugs me though is that I cannot seem to enable plymouth.

this is what alternatives is set to:

There are 2 choices for the alternative default.plymouth (providing /usr/share/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth).

  Selection    Path                                                                           Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
* 0            /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-mate-logo/ubuntu-mate-logo.plymouth           150       auto mode
  1            /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-mate-logo/ubuntu-mate-logo-scale-2.plymouth   149       manual mode
  2            /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-mate-logo/ubuntu-mate-logo.plymouth           150       manual mode

This is what /etc/default/grub is set to:

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
GRUB_GFXMODE=2048x1080
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD=keep

This file exists:

-rw-r--r-- /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-mate-logo/ubuntu-mate-logo.plymouth

Results:

Text output at boot.

  • Does /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-mate-logo/ubuntu-mate-logo.plymouth exist? Also check the permissions, I think it should be executable. – PJ Singh Jan 15 at 20:55

RESOLVED:

sudo apt purge grub-pc
sudo apt install --reinstall grub-efi-amd64

Added: "quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub

sudo update-grub
sudo reboot
