I'm running Fedora 20 (with the Gnome 3.12 packages from RHughes COPR if relevant).

When I installed Fedora 19 originally I enabled disk encryption. From then on I was prompted for the password in a user interface (a grey screen with a white password box).

However, having updated (I think it was the Fedora 20 update that did it) I'm now prompted using a very basic terminal style prompt:

The disc details (from the Disks Fedora utility) are:

Partition 1: 524MB /dev/sda1, ext4, /boot

Partition 2: 500GB, /dev/sda2, LUKS Encryption (version 1) - Unlocked

500GB, /dev/mapper/luks-e368c023-f526-4a0d-b0d0-a26517bba59d, LVM2 Physical Volume (LVM2 001)

Is this a known regression (I couldn't find a bug, nor any errors in /var/log/messages) or have I done something to break it:

I believe this occurred because I installed the Nvidia proprietary drivers and this somehow breaks the Plymouth configuration. I only realised this because I followed a guide to rollback to nouveau and it mentioned Plymouth when setting it up.

I've reconfigured Plymouth and it seems to work correctly again - I now have a graphical menu for disk decryption again.
