    Re: HOWTO: Grub splash images.

    You can do this without editing manually the files with grubconf.

    #sudo apt-get install grubconf

    Re: HOWTO: Grub splash images.

    Is it possible to change the font in the splash screen? Size, colour, etc?

    Did you try with a used image that you know is working?

    Please post your grubconf and the image you are using.

    Please post your grubconf and the image you are using.
    i used your usplash as well as one i made myself. both had same results.

    menu.lst..
    Code:
    # menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
    #            grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
    #            grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
    #            and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.
    
    ## default num
    # Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
    # the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
    #
    # You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
    # is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.           
    default		0
    
    ## timeout sec
    # Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
    # (normally the first entry defined).
    timeout		3
    
    ## hiddenmenu
    # Hides the menu by default (press ESC to see the menu)
    hiddenmenu
    
    # Pretty colours
    #color cyan/blue white/blue
    
    ## Splash image!
    splashimage (hd0,0)/boot/grub/images/tux.xpm.gz
    
    ## password ['--md5'] passwd
    # If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing
    # control (menu entry editor and command-line)  and entries protected by the
    # command 'lock'
