I'm using Mint 17.1. Yesterday I uninstalled
fortune as I never use them;
fortune had dependencies that were also removed, I assumed because they were no longer needed. However, on shutting down yesterday I briefly saw an Ubuntu 14.04 screen but assumed it was just a little glitch. Today, on booting up, instead of getting my lovely Mint log on screen, I get an unfamiliar blue log on screen.
I'm guessing this must be as a result of uninstalling those dependencies. I half hope I'm wrong because if that's not the cause, then I've got other issues.
So I suppose I have two questions:
- How can I restore my minty log on screen?
- And for future reference, how can I be sure when I uninstall something that its dependencies really aren't needed any more?
