Thanks, Will. 8)

The first step/command is correct. Half way there.


The second step/command needs one small change.

The Line
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS"

Should be changed to
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Lite 2.0"

To make the change
1. Open the file manager, Thunar
2. Navigate to the /etc folder in Thunar
3. At the top area of Thunar type /etc (erasing what's currently there) and press enter
4. You should be in the /etc folder in Thunar now
5. Locate the file lsb-release
6. Open the lsb-release file as administrator --- rt-click on the file lsb-release, choose open as administrator
7. Type in your password
8. The file lsb-release should open
9. Edit the last line of the file
10. Replace the words -- Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
11. With the words -- Linux Lite 2.0
12. Save the file
13. The end!

Did it work. Let's test it.
Type cat /etc/lsb-release

You should get the following output
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Lite 2.0"


Did it work?

i got it from saying ubuntu but when it did not remove anything when i ran auto-remove i guess i will test to see if everything works and learn from this mistake next time ;)

If it didn't remove anything, then there was nothing that needed to be removed.  Nothing to worry about.

As far as I know, this isn't technically a "problem".  Nothing is technically different in the system.  The only thing that is happening is that the description of the system gets changed to the generic "Ubuntu" instead of "LL 2".  If you left it like that, it wouldn't hurt anything.  So again, it's not really something you need to lose sleep over.

EDIT:  Apparently, it can be a problem -- see this post by Valtam.

Hello,

I made the same error in selection on this update from Ubuntu too.
I have followed the thread and edited the lsb-release file, and checked this in the terminal which now states -
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Lite 2.0"

The Ubuntu splash screen on reboot still occurs when closing, and again when starting up before the Linux Lite Login screen.

I have tried
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove and it says there are 0 to be removed.

Hey bitsnpcs, I had the same problem after installing the latest KDE desktop in my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS install a couple months ago (before I switched to LL  ;D)

What you'll need to do is enter this line of code into Terminal:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
You should see a list of items, each numbered on the left-side. The boot splash in use will be marked with an * (asterisk), which in this case will probably be the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS boot splash. Look at this list and locate the Linux Lite option (this hasn't happened to me in LL yet, so I can't say what it will be labeled). If you could screenshot the output of this code and upload it, I'm sure one of us will be able to point out which boot splash will be the correct one!

If you do manage to locate the correct LL boot splash, the terminal will ask which number to use. Select the number next to the LL boot splash, and hit Enter. Once that's done, you'll need to input the following code into the same terminal, and then I recommend restarting the system (this will give you a chance to see if the boot splash actually changed):
Code: [Select]
sudo update-initramfs -u

Usually, that would have multiple entries, but in your case, it says it only has the default liteboot.plymouth so there shouldn't be a problem. Hmmm, now I'm stumped.

[NOTE]: I was only trying to assist bits in getting the LL boot splash to appear, nothing more, nothing less. I wish I could've helped him solve his entire problem.  :-\

bitsnpcs,

You may have already done this, but just in case you missed it -- run this command:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/issue
You should see this:
Code: [Select]
Linux Lite 2.0 LTS \n \l

Hello gold_finger,
yes I had done this following earlier parts of the thread.
I have done it again to ensure nothing has altered since that time.
The output is as you specified.



I managed to read one line of the briefly appearing text on Ubuntu boot splash, it says "Starting LightDM".

Hmmm.  I'm not sure at this point.  I'll keep an eye out for solutions and post back if I find one.

I placed a sticky note on the edge of the monitor with an arrow on it and rebooted multiple times to read the fast appearing/disappearing text, each time moving the sticky down so I knew where to focus my eyes to try and read it quick enough on next reboot.
I came to a line "X.Org desktop not found"
I changed the graphics driver from "Nvidia tested" to "X.Org X Server Nouveau", the Ubuntu splash screen on shutdown remained, but the Ubuntu boot splash had gone, I rebooted again and the Ubuntu splash on shutdown had also gone.
It has also stopped video playback, attempting this crashes the OS and opens a report dialogue to Ubuntu on auto restart before the login screen. I will ask about graphics in the relevant section.

Sometimes the keyboard pause key helps.
