Yet another way to change your Boot Screen

Welcome back, if you have been following along with my tutorials. I recently went through how to manually change your boot screen (also referred to as the grub screen), your login screen, and what I call the animation screen. The animation screen is basically a transition screen shown while your system is either loading or shutting down in Parrot Security OS. So if you followed my other tutorials you have found it isn’t that hard to change these things through the terminal. However, what if I were to tell you that you can change the boot screen without even touching the terminal? What if I then told you that you already have this ability built right into your Parrot Security OS?

So here’s how easy this is, just go to your Synaptic Package Manager and search for grub-customizer. Once you install this you will have a new application available under “System” and then “Administration” in your menu. It’s simply that easy to change the grub or boot screen. Now, the one thing I recommend not fooling with are the fonts. Feel free to change font colors and highlights to your heart’s content. Changing what font is used is not a good idea since grub is only able to display specific system fonts and if you choose a non-compatible font this could wreak havoc on your system possibly.

Special Note: Now you can always do a Google image search for “linux boot screens” or “linux grub screens” or if you choose crack open GIMP or Krita and make your very own custom screens. Enjoy!
