I installed Xubuntu-desktop over Ubuntu 11.10 and now when I shutdown my system or start it up, I see Xubuntu's bootsplash screen. Is simply removing the plymouth theme for Xubuntu corrects the problem and brings back default Ubuntu's? I don't want to 'experiment' thereby breaking something during the process.
Run the following commands
# Select your desired plymouth theme sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth # Rebuild / update your initramfs with the new theme sudo update-initramfs -u
If you prefer a graphical tool you can try plymouth manager, it is available via a ppa
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mefrio-g/plymouthmanager sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install plymouth-manager
There are several themes available in the same ppa
