    Re: GRUB2 theming for lucid?

    Looks sweet - I might have to fiddle around with it myself. Is there still an option to fall back to the textual prompt if need be (say, to go into a RT kernel)?

    I can't get this to work. Too many files to edit and still not enough info on what I need to do.

    Actually with ppa5, the process is greatly simplified, you don't need to modify files any more. Here are the steps:

    1, install ppa5, and install BURG to mbr/bs.
    2, download theme files from the files section of

    http://groups.google.com/group/burg-devel

    and extract to /boot/grub:

    Code:
    cd /boot/grub
    sudo tar xzf ~/theme_default.tar.gz
    sudo tar xzf ~/theme_sora.tar.gz
    sudo tar xzf ~/theme_chiva.tar.gz
    3, edit /boot/default/grub, add these two lines at the end:
    Code:
    GRUB_THEME=sora
    GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768
    4, Run update-grub.

    The value of GRUB_THEME can be one of these:
    proto, ubuntu, winter, sora, sora/clean, sora/extended, chiva

    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"

    Oh, it looks nice, and it shouldn't be difficult to implement it with BURG.

    I've installed that theme, but loading process is very slow.
