    Nice theme... The grey in the background of boot_linux.icns is a bit off though... Can't the background be transparent on that?
    Now you just need to theme the rest of refit, so we can have pretty utilities aswell
    Once upon a time, there was.
    Then, there wasn't.

    In regards to both of the themes shared, very cool. I'm typing this from my macbook right now, and will definitely give them a shot.

    Inspired by the gray theme I added did a tux (As I'm not running Ubuntu) and the tools.

    Screenshot is attached, as is the theme files.

    (To take a screenshot, hit F10, then you can find the file named screenshot.bmp in your EFI System Partition, to mount the EFI System Partition do
    Code:
    mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /where/to/mount
    or the equivalent in linux.)

    Re: A Prettier rEFIt

    i know this is a rather old post but could anyone tell me almost word for word how to make the background all black. i was able to take all of the cursors off (aside of the apple and i customized just a regular picture of tux. ) only thing i want to do now is put in the black background.

    thanks.

    Re: A Prettier rEFIt

    Here's how to make the background black:

    1. Download this image: black.zip. Unzip it and place it in the same folder as refit.efi. This image's upper-left pixel is totally black, which, when placed next to refit.efi, tells rEFIt to make the whole background black.

    2. Open refit.conf, and remove the # at the beginning of the line that says "banner hostname.bmp" and save the file. This tells rEFIt to look for and reference the image.

    That should do it!

    Re: A Prettier rEFIt

    Hi guys, like the theme and stuff.

    I have a problem with the selection bitmap. For some reason the bmp I downloaded from the link works but if I change it and save with photoshop or whatever image manipulate program, it won't work anymore even with the same name same place.

    It seems like rEFIt requires a special bitmap I assume, can anyone tell me how you save and edit the selection image on a mac?

    Re: A Prettier rEFIt

    Hey, I'm running rEFIt on my MBP and I am having issues getting the banner to work out right. It seems if the image size gets too large rEFIt seems to discard the icons and subsequently make it impossible to select a partition. Anyone know what size constraints there are?
