Black Screen while booting... but desktop is ok

Hello all:

We are having an issue where there is no splash screen while booting, and nothing I do gets any splash screen to show up. This is over HDMI. Once we get to the desktop, everything is fine… but until then, darkness.

I did some looking up on-line to find changes to ‘plymouth’ (/usr/share/plymouth… etc) but nothing I do in there changes anything. Also, there was no /etc/default/grub to edit… I’ve tried even creating one, but nothing helps.

We are running Ubuntu Mate 18.04.02 LTS…

Does any one have any ideas?

Thank you so much, Robert DeCrescenzo

…bump… anyone? Nobody has seen this issue?

Thanks in advance…

same issue you have any change in this please tell thank you
