Plymouth splash screen vanished

Linux Mint 21 Vanessa base: Ubuntu 22.04 jammy.

I have a duel boot system with windows 10. I had problems with GRUB which has been sorted out. However, now when booting I see lines of code instead of the splash screen.

cjhm@CJHM:~$ update-alternatives --query default.plymouth
Name: default.plymouth
Link: /usr/share/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth

Any assistance on how to get the splash screen back welcome.

Hi Tramlink,

Did you try reinstalling the plymouth package, maybe something like;

sudo apt-get install --reinstall plymouth-theme-mint-logo

(I don’t know the actual package name as I don’t have a mint handy, but all the other spins I have seem to follow this naming convention, confirm with sudo apt search plymouth)

I’m not sure what specifically would be broken, but my expectation would be that a re-install of the package should put it back and rebuild the appropriate bits without having to resort to rebuilding low-level stuff by hand.
