NVIDIA Driver in Linux not Displaying Logo During Booting

The NVIDIA video card driver in Linux will display the NVIDIA logo by default during booting the X server after we successfully installed the driver. If we don’t like to see the logo every time we start X server, we can disable it.

We need to edit the Xorg configuration file /etc/X11/xorg.conf with root permission. Add a line Option “NoLogo” within the “Device” section which configuring the NVIDIA driver will disable the logo.

This is my xorg.conf file. I use two screen (a big LED and my laptop’s screen) and the screen of my laptop’s DPI is 96×96.
