Last updated: August 18, 2013

Ubuntu boot Nvidia logoAfter properly installed Nvidia drives in Ubuntu, you may get the Nvidia Logo while booting up your machine. If you find it’s annoying to have this screen, this tutorial will show you how to easily disable it by two ways.

One command to disable Nvidia logo

The easiest way to do this is running below command in terminal (press Ctrl+Alt+T):

sudo nvidia-xconfig --no-logo

After that, you won’t see the logo in bootup any longer.

The other way is to manually edit the Nvidia config file. Edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf by running below command:

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

add Option “NoLogo” to Section “Device”, make it look like this:

Section “Device”
Identifier “Device0”
Driver “nvidia”
Option “NoLogo”
VendorName “NVIDIA Corporation”
BoardName “GeForce 9600 GT”

After that, save the file and reboot.
