When booting or rebooting, the splash screen of Kubuntu is black/blank. I do not see grub prompts nor the splash. Here is what I have attempted so far:
I figured the answer was in /etc/default/grub, but when I insert nomodeset to quiet splash, all that happens is it slightly reduces the resolution of my screen at all times during use. Still no splash.
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
Tried regular splash:
Still a black or blank splash. But when I use an empty default and then run "update-grub", I get the old-time scrolling commands.
How can I get a working splash screen? I also checked the /etc/alternatives/default.plymouth file, but it appears correct.
This is a fresh install. Running all updates in Muon did not change any results. Once I get to the user selection login screen everything works fine. I have an older AMD video card using the open source driver.
