I know that when I got my graphical desktop environment to work the graphics went really slow then I fixed it my installing the latest nVidia driver and now it works great but how do I get plymouths graphics to not be slow? Do I have to install another driver or something?
As far as I understand it, the plymouth screen you are talking about is basically what you see when the computer is booting up. In other words if you hit TAB or ESC (I'm not sure which) whilst the computer is booting, you will see all the boot info as it scrolls past.
If you wait for F11, the info out there says that it will boot in a very short time - much quicker than F10. I wonder if this is what you are referring to? You may have to wait for F11 to see faster boot times.
When you say slow, how slow do you mean? How long does it take for your computer to boot from pressing the power button to the login screen?
