    Grub Customizer not working after upgrade to 12:10

    Since I upgraded to 12:10, now on 3 machines, none does Grub Customizer work. It opens and seems to have saved my original settings. I "Install" to "File" -> "Install to MBR...".

    Also the same on Login Screen. Can not make changes....

    When I reboot Grub has not changed to my new settings.

    Any ideas, please?

    This is in 32-bit and 64-bit machines, all running xfce...

    Yup, but I found that the more complex, if that is a correct word to use - settings are not saved. I used it in 12:04 to change the background image and other things. That is still there but it does not load in 12:10. This, I have found is a known bug, as per the link.

    Resolved. Thanks to contacting Daniel directly. Seems it is a probable problem with in Grub that caused the problem. A step BACKWARDS, sadly. Here is his eMail to me, I hope it is help for others who may fall foul of this.

    now I also tried setting a background image and it worked well. I used /usr/share/backgrounds/Gran_Canaria_by_ALF.jpg.

    However I've seen there are spaces on your image path. So I replaced the underscores of my test image by spaces and voila… this doesn't show up on boot menu. If it really worked on old versions of grub2, then it's a problem of the new one. Grub Customizer quotes the image correctly, so update-grub found's it.

    The easiest fix is renaming the directory containing your images from "Images for appearence" to "Images_for_appearence".

    Hope it helps!

    Bye
