3 minor cofig issues with 12.04.1 minimal install
I decided to build the wife's laptop to my specs. I used the minimal cd w/ manual file installation so all it would install is the base system, drivers and shell.
I installed gdm, network-manager and gnome-core to start with.
Gnome core is close to what I want, but no cigar. So I used unmarkauto in aptitude to break the dep links in the meta-package and pull out stuff I didn't want like epiphany.
Everything went well untill I pulled Unity out.
These are the three issues:
1) When I pulled unity out I lost my bootloader screen. At boot everything is just black until the desk top comes up. I'll check the grub config files when I get home. But I don't think that's the issue since it was working fine before I pulled unity out. Any ideas where I should look besides the grub config files?
2) The minimal / manual install never had a splash screen. How do you add one for the first time when it never had on to begin with?
3) The default volume at boot is "muted". Where can I find the config file to turn up the system default volume?
