If you don't like the purple screen when you first turn on the computer and want to change it to black.
Here are the instructions to accomplish this.
- Open the file
/lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu-logo.scriptwith a text editor
- Find the two lines quoted below in the script
Change all the values in the brackets to “0” then save the file
Window.SetBackgroundTopColor (0.0, 0.00, 0.0); # Nice colour on top of the screen fading to Window.SetBackgroundBottomColor (0.0, 0.00, 0.0); # an equally nice colour on the bottom
Run the following command in the terminal
sudo update-initramfs -u
The colour of the boot splash background will now be black instead of purple when you reboot.
I've opened the
ubuntu-logo.script file with gedit but am unable to save it. Where am i wrong?
