I'm using Linux Mint Debian Edition with Cinnamon. If I switch to another tty using Ctrl + Alt + F# and then switch back to tty7, I only see the terminal with this error:
[FAIL] startpar: services returned failure: plymouth ... failed
I checked in the dmesg, daemon.log, lastlog, messages, user.log, and Xorg.0.log and I don't see the error anywhere. I'm forced to switch back to another tty and restart mdm (Mint Display Manager) to get back to the log in screen (and thus losing whatever I was working on).
How do I fix this? I thought Plymouth was merely for setting the resolution as early as possible in the boot process. I did post a similar thread at the LM forums, but haven't received any word yet.
