Description: Upon boot up and shutdown, as of the update on or around 2019/04/15, the boot/shutdown screen changed from a white circle in the center with a parrot superimposed over a wobbling disk, to a grey background with three small squares with one highlighted. The problem is that the grey background adopts the size of the smallest monitor (in my case, I have monitors connected to VGA-1 [1920 x 1200] and HDMI-1 [1600 x 900] outputs, with the larger, VGA monitor as my primary) as the size of the background. This results in a grey rectangle [1600 x 900] in the upper left of the VGA monitor and the remainder black.
Not a big deal, just appears amateurish or broken.

Anyone going to fix this bug? Still present in 4.7 (upgrade using “parrot-upgrade”).

is lightdm installed?

give us the output of
apt list --installed

Too long to post. I have a tar.gz of the list I can place anywhere you want it.

Well the update today (July 1, 2019) brought the opening screen back (the closing screen came back about 2 weeks ago).

From what I can tell, it appears to be a conflict with the vanilla grub configuration and what nVidia tries to do with it (grub updated, noted conflicts, when I examined those conflicts, they appeared to be nVidia settings in the existing grub configuration, so I let the default grub overwrite and the OS now has the wobbly thing at bootup and shutdown.)

I hope this helps people in the future.
