Re: GRUB2 theming for lucid?
yes, its trying to load helvetica-bold-27 and 29... so i just symlinked to the existing -24 one... and make sure the "loadfont ..." calls include them in the final generated grub.cfg
note i just added GRUB_THEME=sora to /etc/default/grub and not the ". /blah/theme.cfg" line to 40_custom... so i meddled around a bit...
i needed to add symlinks in /boot/grub to the font and sora folders in the /boot/grub/themes directory because either there is a bug or i misconfigured and its looking in /boot/grub instead of /boot/grub/themes ... HTH
