  The easiest way to fix plymouth after installing nvidia drivers on Linux Mint


The easiest way to fix ugly plymouth theme fter installing nvidia drivers is to open terminal and type:

 
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub


Look for the line :


 
#GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480


Just underneath write the line :


 
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=auto
 
 
if this does not fix your problem replace "GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=auto" with:
 
 
 
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="1024x768"
 
 


 

then update grub with this command line:



 
sudo update-grub



reboot and hey presto, a nice plymouth theme :D



Solution tested with fashion theme http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/fashion:+Linux+Mint+plymouth+theme?content=163634

BTW this solution did not work for me http://www.webupd8.org/2010/03/how-to-get-plymouth-working-with-nvidia.html

 

If for any reason your grub menu resolution is not right, install grub customizer with this command lines:
 

 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer


and then set your screen resolution to:


 
1024x768


save and close grub customizer.

gfxpayload: 


If this variable is set, it controls the video mode in which the Linux kernel starts up, replacing the ‘vga=’ boot option (see linux). It may be set to ‘text’ to force the Linux kernel to boot in normal text mode, ‘keep’ to preserve the graphics mode set using ‘gfxmode’, or any of the permitted values for ‘gfxmode’ to set a particular graphics mode (see gfxmode).

Depending on your kernel, your distribution, your graphics card, and the phase of the moon, note that using this option may cause GNU/Linux to suffer from various display problems, particularly during the early part of the boot sequence. If you have problems, set this variable to ‘text’ and GRUB will tell Linux to boot in normal text mode.

The default is platform-specific. On platforms with a native text mode (such as PC BIOS platforms), the default is ‘text’. Otherwise the default may be ‘auto’ or a specific video mode.

This variable is often set by ‘GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX
