Okay, so I installed a few extra desktop environments, one of which was the Xubuntu pack, and it replaced my login screen and Boot GUI as mentioned. I made the mistake of trying to purge Lightdm and reinstalling it, but the boot GUI hasn’t changed and the login screen is even further from what I wanted. What can I do to correct it? All I want is what came with Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy.


For boot logo


sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

This will show all your themes. Just choose appropriate number.
For example:

Есть 3 варианта для альтернативы default.plymouth (предоставляет /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth).

Выбор   Путь                                                               Приор Состояние

* 2            /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-faded-screen/ubuntu-faded-screen.plymouth   20        ручной режим
  3            /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu-logo.plymouth                   100       ручной режим

Нажмите enter, чтобы сохранить текущий выбор[*], или введите выбранное число: 

For login screen

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm

Set Lightdm as default Desktop Manager:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm

Uninstall Xubuntu:

  • Well, that worked marvellously, though the login screen isn't exactly what I was hoping for, it certainly is a lot closer. – Colby Solomon Feb 25 '14 at 4:41
