How to Fix the Big and Ugly Plymouth Logo in Ubuntu 10.04


The logo looks fine when you install Ubuntu, but, after you install the proprietary Nvidia and ATI video drivers, the logo gets bigger and ugly! Below, we provide two fixes for this issue: the first one will fix the resolution of the Ubuntu logo, pretty much like it was when you installed Ubuntu; and the second one will remove the logo, showing only a dark screen until the login manager appears.


sudo apt-get install v86d
sudo vi /etc/default/grub

Replace the following line:


with this one:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1024x768-16,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"

Replace the following line:


with this one:

sudo vi /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

When the text window appears, add the following line at the end of the file:

uvesafb mode_option=1024×768-16 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap

sudo echo FRAMEBUFFER=y | sudo tee /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
sudo update-grub2
sudo update-initramfs -u
