Disable splash screen on bootup

how can I disable the splash screen and just show the text of bootup?
Do i just remove edit} grub “quiet startup” ? replace it with anything?

Thanks in advance

I think you do the following:

Edit grub. To do so, paste this in a terminal: sudo pluma /etc/default/grub

Look for the line


and change it to


Then save the file.

Then in a terminal paste this: sudo update-grub

Hi @Michael_Ward, welcome!

Do you think this would be a suitable option for you?:relaxed:



sudo apt-get install plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text

Then run:


sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
sudo update-initramfs -u

Whoops, sorry @stevecook172001; we posted together! :scream::grin:
