The ATI proprietary drivers will either make your boot splash screen look as text, or you could end up looking at a bunch of scrolling text (and/or some blue bars)

To solve this, you might want to follow this steps, they do work on the Samsung R540J01, if you want to use them for another model (or other ATI graphics card) you might want to look for the best resolution available on your system.

We'll be using the uvesafb, I'll report back at you IF I can get the vesafb to work (because uvesafb isn't hardware accelerated so the other cool boot splashes might not work).

This is not my work though, this came from here, I just extended the orientations a bit:
http://www.downloadatoz.com/driver/arti ... ation.html

1. On a terminal screen execute this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install v86d

It will ask for your password.

2. Alt+F2, write "gksudo gedit", without quotes and press enter.
3. Open /etc/default/grub

Change the line where it says:
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

To this:
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1366x768-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"


and after the line that says:
Code:
#GRUB_GFXMODE="640x480"


add the following:
Code:
GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1366x768


Save the file, don't close the editor.

4. Open the file /etc/initramfs-tools and add to it the following:
Code:
uvesafb mode_option=1366x768-24 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap


5. Create a file called /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
Add to it this line:
Code:
FRAMEBUFFER=y


Save the file, close the editor.

6. Open up the terminal (Alt+F2, write "gnome-terminal" without the quotes, press enter).
Execute this two lines:
Code:
sudo update-grub
sudo update-initramfs -u


Your password will be asked, they'll take a bit of time to work.

7. Once all this is done, you can now reboot.
Enjoy :D
