I installed Ubuntu 14.04 server on a box and then turned that box into a normal desktop installation with the installation of packages like
ubuntu-desktop. Everything is working fine except the boot sequences: instead of the normal graphical loading animation I see the output of startup services in the text console before the graphical login manager is launched.
I suppose that the default Ubuntu installation writes somewhere "...and use the graphical boot animation", while the installer of the server version does not.
How can I manually set the boot sequence to avoid the text console and use the boot splash screen?
