I would like to see the Plymouth screen until the boot process has been completed. In my case the Plymouth screen disappears. After that I only see a dash which change color until the desktop starts. Is it posible to keep Plymouth running until the end?

Using Ununtu 16.04

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

best regards

  • Does the greeter resolution match the boot resolution? This sounds like the Dm changing screen modes (ie boot has ended ans desktop is starting) – ravery Sep 20 '17 at 10:10

    @mondjunge -- I think he is asking why there is a black screen between plymouth and his greeter showing. Not that he has no plymouth. – ravery Sep 20 '17 at 10:14

362722 Solves the question. After showing the Ubuntu logo with 5 points underneath, the system shows only the points with another background. This changes to a black screen. About 15 sec later I see the mouse. About 20 sec later the desktop screen appears. I am using a quite old laptop with a Intel duo 2.80 Ghz which explains partially the wait time Thanks again
