WTF, I did an upgrade/update and now my login screen is some stupid pink Sh*t. How do I get my blue back and why would an update/upgrade change this?...

    What do you mean by changed to pink? Has the colour temperature changed or is it the theme or something else?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    No the grub splash screen as now some pink color with stars. I liked the old splash screens that were blue. I looked in /etc/splash and they are no longer there and I don't know where to find them.

    Do you mean Plymouth? If so on my SolydX (Debian) the themes are stored in /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ and there is a configuration file in /etc/plymouth/ but I have no idea if Gentoo would store them in the same place.

    Are you using a framebuffer? Is GRUB screen the only place you see a pink screen?

    I am at work now will take a screen shot and post it. What I an talking about is once you boot the system and choose the version you want it boots to a user login screen. This screen has changed from the blue that I liked to this new pink and I cannot find the old files to get my blue back again.

    OK, here is what it looks like now;

    SCREEN BEFORE PASSWORD ENTERED


    This is what I would like it to look like. This is what I have after I put in my password.

    That looks like a Sabayon screen to me. I would look into the latest updates and see if either GRUB or GRUB 2 was updated. Maybe even look around for bootsplash. I think something updated and that where the problem lies.

    That may be a new KDM theme or background which IIRC you can change in System Settings / Login Screen. That's assuming the old one is still installed.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Of course the poster may have accidentally updated to the LGBT boot theme! Sorry - I couldn't help myself...
