When shutting down Elementary 6 Odin, the splashscreen is not presented but instead it is showing the shutdown command text. This is following a fresh install from flash. On startup it is set to quiet launch with no logo splash or commands.

Keno's answer worked, Thank you. I also updated my graphics drivers with:

sudo apt install xserver-xorg-video-intel

In fact it may be worth updating your intel drivers first.

I believe this is the same issue I had, but you don't use disk encryption so you just see a black screen shortly on boot and then are greeted by the login manager.

See here for my solution: Black screen instead of plymouth

  • Thank you so much for your response. Was this with Elementary 6 Odin? (I see you also used a Lenovo, I'm using a X1 1st Gen.) Commented Aug 11, 2021 at 23:13
  • @ShannonButler Yes it was with Odin. I'm going to clarify this in my question.
