The example picture with the bigger font size has now been added at the bottom of the tutorial.
I changed 1920x1200x32 to 1920x1200-32 in Step 1. Not sure if that is what made my monitor click
when booting up or not. This is what I have mine set to now and I have an nVidia GeForce 9800 GT card.
The monitor was clicking 2 or 3 times at every boot. Now it does not click even once ever.
I also did a clean install 2 days ago from a Lucid Lynx 10.10.1 64 bit Desktop ISO found here.
So, I am not sure which process fixed the monitor clicking, but I am happy that it no longer does.
I changed 1920x1200x32 to 1920x1200-24 in Step 1. This is based on your video card/driver.
I have an nVidea card and in NVIDEA X Server Settings, it mentions 24 bit depth.
And my monitor started clicking again soon after I posted the previous comment. But, it is not caused by Ubuntu.
It does it while rebooting with Windows 7 too. I know it is loosing sync, which is what the clicking is, but it has always
done that since I got the PC. I was surprised that it went away temporarily.
It all worked GREAT.... except one little artifact I can not explain...
I used the same values and fonts as the example. In the GRUB2 menu option screen, the fonts of the selected line are chopped off by the top 25% or so. When I select down to subsequent lines it then chops off the top of each font as it progresses...... It seems to be some problem in the selected font?
I noticed this on one website:
"FYI: I believe the "--size=" indicates point size but I'm not entirely sure (the documentation doesn't say). If it is based on the point scale I don't believe it is
taking dpi into account since I tried "--size=72" on a 120dpi display and letters were only about half an inch tall (72 points is precisely one inch)."
I guess you could play around with it, but are you sure it is not the picture's size? What size is your resolution and picture size?
For Maverick Meerkat only, added a comment before step 7 that says not to create the font for GRUB2.
And if you have the font listed in /etc/default/grub, you will need to comment it out with a # in front of it.
I upgraded to Maverick and thought the font was too big, so I tried a few things and then noticed that
the font line was not even included. When I added it, it made it really look bad. So, I commented it out and it looks great.
So, the default font has been made bigger apparently.
I had upgraded to Maverick from Lucid and apparently things were quite a bit different than doing a clean install, which I did yesterday.
Consequently I had made some errors in the tutorial with notes concerning Maverick which I have just fixed. There are only a couple of subtle
differences with Maverick and the previous versions. If I caused anyone any harm, I appologize. But, everything should be good to go now
for any flavour of Ubuntu especially using multiple operating systems, e.g. dual or tri-booting.
I have migrate from Debian to Ubuntu 10.10 and this is tricky question because I want to know about Grub2 and mouserate in Debian and Ubuntu and Grub1 was something like this:
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.32-5-686
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 root=/dev/sda1 ro vga=791 usbhid.mousepoll=2
And it works for me to have 500Hz mouse rate, now I want to know where to put this little thing:
Don't tell me please to do it in other way because none of another way works for me even like this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=215981
So I must edit grub to have 500Hz mouse.
Thank you for future answer!
I believe you are more likely to get help on this other thread.
