Removing Ubuntu 18.04+ Splash Screen Graphic

Last Updated on

This is a quick and easy method to disable the splash screen on Ubuntu versions 18.04+ (possibly others).  Depending on your preference, you may prefer to see the text based status messages that are ubiquitous with the Linux boot process.

sudo sed -i -e 's/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""/GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""/' /etc/default/grub
sudo apt remove plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text
sudo update-grub2

Reboot and you will no longer be greeted with the Ubuntu splash screen.

Alternatively edit the /etc/default/grub file and make changes there.
