    Default GRUB splash screen Ubuntu 12.04

    I tried the XFCE4 desktop manager for some reasons and decided to stick with Unity. The thing is, when I installed XFCE4 it changed the GRUB menu background from the plain purple splash screen into some spacey pic. I'd like to get the default plain purple GRUB menu. How can I do that?

    You need to edit the /etc/default/grub file.
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
    And edit the line that begins:
    GRUB_BACKGROUND=/
    Point it to the path of the background you want.
    Then run update-grub & reboot.

    You can also try Grub Customizer which has a simple GUI for that. More info can be found here http://www.webupd8.org/2012/09/grub-...-released.html and here for how it works http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10340183. Hope this will help, the first suggestion though by @cottfcfan is better if you are comfortable with the Command Line Interface and editing configuration files.
