Is there a way to change the loading screen background of Ubuntu 19.10 to black from the default purple?

I have changed the login screen background by editing the CSS, which I saw in some other post here, and the grub boot loader background color. But after login it shows a screen with progress bar which is still purple. Is there a way to change the color to black?


I believe you are talking about the Plymouth screen that appears before the login screen appears.

This has already been answered here. How can I change the purple background color of Ubuntu plymouth boot screen?

Inside of this file /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu-logo.script

Change these values.

Window.SetBackgroundTopColor (0.0, 0.00, 0.0);
Window.SetBackgroundBottomColor (0.0, 0.00, 0.0); 

Then run.

sudo update-initramfs -u
