Ubuntu – Ubuntu 16.04 Plymouth doesn’t show splash screen at startup!


Ok so I upgraded ubuntu 15.10 to 16.04, and now my plymouth themes doesn't show splash screen( only black screen after grub) at startup but during shutdown or restarting it shows the splash screen.

I tried changing the theme to default splash screen, but still no luck.

Can anyone help?

In 16.04, plymouth path was changed.

You need to edit the /etc/alternatives/default.plymouth file.

Under the script caption make sure the directory is exactly like this:

ImageDir=/usr/share/plymouth/themes/YOUR_PLYMOUTH_NAME/ ScriptFile=/usr/share/plymouth/themes/YOUR_PLYMOUTH_NAME/YOUR_PLYMOUTH_NAME.script
