I recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 on a dual boot with Windows 10 but from the start the grub boot loader is black and white. Now it's not much of a problem because the operating systems itself work alright but I think I would rather choose to stare at a purple screen at the start rather than a black and white one.

Thanks for any solutions 😁.

  • you may choose your own color or have a idea with this askubuntu.com/q/69271/739431 – UnKNOWn May 23 '20 at 14:54
  • I Just check the above link.. in 20.04 there is no file /usr/share/plymouth/themes/default.grub. so crete the default.grub file first. and then copy paste the if;then;fi concept colors from the answers. I checked it. It worked. – UnKNOWn May 23 '20 at 15:11

grub-customizer is a tool that allows you to easy customize your Grub menu. You should give it a shot ! :)

sudo apt update
sudo apt install grub-customizer

If you find difficulty in understanding Duplicate Link

copy paste the below in a empty text file in home directory and name the file as grub.sh.
save the file & close.



touch $file
echo "if background_color 66,30,53 ; then
fi" > $file


and run the command

sudo bash grub.sh

Reboot will show you purple background for grub menu screen.
