Assuming that this is Ubuntu 20.04...

From the GRUB menu, choose Additional Options, then Recovery Mode, Root Access.

At the # prompt:

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

enter image description here

Choose the ubuntu-logo choice, then repeat the command with the bgrt choice.

sudo update-initramfs -c -k $(uname -r)

Then reboot.

  • In my case, Lubuntu 20 04, it boots and says [ok] for Finished Terminate Plymouth Boot Screen.Then nothing. With Alt-F1 I can go to tty1, but Lubuntu will not start in GUI. With Ctrl Alt F7 I get back to the Plymouth message, but no gui. – Timo Jan 12 at 18:45
